Hey Franny - You're off to a GREAT start!!!
It sounds like you've got the most important thing in mind: CONCENTRATE ON TODAY.
Don't worry about how your QUIT will be tomorrow, the day after, or the day after that!
TODAY is the most important.
In fact: If you want to concern yourself with your quit, focus on the next HOUR: "I will not smoke for the next hour!" Once you've achieved that, it's time to set a new goal - maybe for another hour, maybe for 90mins...but make your goals achievable!!
We all get hung-up in the daunting thought of "I can quit for an hour, but how could I ever quit for a week or more?"
Don't concentrate on the week - the week WILL happen!! ...It will just be made-up of many many individual hours that you've accomplished smoke-free. Don't let your thoughts beat you up with the notion of an 'impossible QUIT'.
You're not going to focus on quitting: You're choosing not to smoke for the next hour, or the next day...And then, you can choose not to smoke for another manageable period of time.
All of us smokers are brainwashed that it's impossible / extremely difficult to QUIT. Don't believe it...it's possible: as long as you only focus on smaller, more manageable sections of time as you proceed through the process.
One of the most important things is to set these small "goals"...
Doesn't matter if your specific goal is for an HOUR or a WEEK: Reward yourself once you've achieved it!
For example, once you've accomplished a full day without your vice, reward yourself with something that measures-up to the accomplishment: Maybe to buy something for the equivalent $10-$12 money you just saved? It's up to you.
We're all here for you, Franny - and we all want to see you SUCCEED!!!
Please don't hesitate to keep us posted of your progress as you go!
