Always Have An Escape Plan
If you've been accustomed to smoking during family gatherings, or at social events, it'll be helpful to have a strategy for coping with cigarette temptation during such functions. Instead of a cigarette, you can hold onto a pen, key-chain or even a small puzzle. You might discuss an 'escape plan' which allows you to leave if you find things getting a bit rough. Always keep in your thoughts a clear statement about why you quit smoking and how much it means to you to stay quit under any circumstances. Try repeating, "I don't smoke no matter what; no matter I what, I don't smoke" over and over, for instance. Say to yourself anything that will help you hold onto your determination to quit. Keep a list of reasons why you've quit, or benefits you've already noticed since your quit, handy in your wallet or purse. Take along some phone numbers of friends or ex-smokers who have agreed to take your emergency call, in the event you think you may waver in your quit.
Hope this helps!
