    Hi Ocean,

    Hah! Thanks for reminding me. I did not include the chocolate bars (my guilty pleasures) that I buy when I get the cigarettes.

    Hi Ocean,

    Hmmm. You are quite right. My guilty pleasure was buying a chocolate bar with the pack of smokes. They've been going up in price too.

    W is for walking.  Instead of sitting around thinking about your cravings, get out and do some walking to take your mind off of it.

    X is for, Xtraordinary efforts to keep the quit lead to Xtraordinary gains!  Xtra energy, Xtra vitality, and Xtra days of life.  How Xciting!!!

    Okay, I cheated a little bit, but who cares?  LOL  

    Someone take it home.  Two more to go  . . .

    W - Wipe around something to get ride off the moment.

    Z - zig-zag coloring, drawing something...

    Y is for you.  You have the power to think and do - take actions towards healthy distractions to keep the quit.  Way to go everyone!

    I have another for K, for those of us that are single. Knitting, it keeps your hands and mind busy.
