Hey there mommasgirl,
Look at the amazing days behind you! I'm so proud of you!
Look at the personal strength you have ... the last few days were so tough and you won the battles!
The next couple of days might be hard, but draw on that inner strength you've proven you have.
Remember, no one can make you smoke, this is your quit, not theirs.
Something that helps me if I find myself up against a potential trigger is switching my focus from what is happening around me and instead use very simple mindfulness. Example: what are five colours I see right now, what five sounds do I hear outside, what five smells can I detect right now. You get the picture. This really helps bring my anxiety back to a healthier baseline.
Walk easy, mommasgirl ... one step at a time.
