I hated the addict in my head that kept talking to me those first weeks of my quit. It was a constant stream of reasons to go have a smoke that I had to counter with logic.
Being on vacation can be a really good thing. Take the time to wash all your clothes, jackets, curtains, bed sheets, etc. to get rid of the smoke smell. Go around your entire place and vehicles and toss out all smoking related stuff - butt cans, ash trays, lighters, packs of smokes, vapes, etc. Buy some Lysol and go to town spraying all surfaces to get rid of the smell. Clean you vehicle.
I went on a real cleaning binge early in my quit because I needed to do something 'ceremonial' to solidify my quit.
I started talking out loud to myself everytime the addict in my head started in on me. Odd as it sounds, it really does help to vocalize your frustrations and goals of quitting.
Write out a list of pros and cons for going back to smoking and keep that handy. (I bet the pros list will be pretty small).
