I haven’t fully quit smoking yet but today I have only smoked 6 so far.

My quit date (for myself and not to deal with the smoking ban) is next month.

To take my mind off cigarettes, I

Swept upstairs and the stairs

Vacuumed and shampooed all carpet

Cleaned the litter box (due to allergies, I typically leave it to my husband)

Cleaned the stove and burners

Cleaned my coffee pot

Made roll dough for pepperoni rolls soon

Bought and planted a couple flowers with the kids

Made a much more detailed dinner than I usually do

Now, I’m resting and wiped out but it did keep cigarettes off my mind and I didnt even crave. All those chores are nothing, but I usually dont do that much in one day. I figure if I can cut back enough, I should have no issues going cold Turkey.

I am working on compiling a list of things to do instead-

Sew something

Loom knit something

A few minutes of meditation

Deep breathing

Play in the kitchen

Clean something

Organize something

Write a blog entry or work on one of my short stories

What else could I add?
