How’s your quitting been going, by the way?

I have had 3 cigarettes in the past week. While that isn’t successful quitting in the fullest sense of the word, it is a far cry from being a full-on smoker.

The problem is so many of my friends are smokers, and I’m not going to sever ties to quit. I also wouldn’t expect my friends to become non-smokers in my presence. So, I have an occasional cigarette, one every couple of days.

In the past I have tried the “I’m never, ever having a cigarette again” approach, and it just makes me want one even more. Better to just say to myself “I’m not a smoker”. Somehow, that works better for me, for some psychological reason I don’t fully understand.
