MORNING ROUTINE ~ Like an observer of yourself, become familiar with your “morning routine” (if you have one). What are the things that you do every morning, and where does your first cigarette come in? Whether it’s first, second, or third, gradually start putting the other things you also do every morning, ahead of that first cigarette. Develop this first as an exercise, and let it become a strength that you have… the ability to move that first cigarette around in your morning routine at will.
Keep pulling the other things you do in life in ahead of that first smoke, gradually and randomly. Experiment with this a little every day. Can you imagine building a smoke free morning routine and then letting it grow into the rest of the day?
Another awareness exersize:
CONSCIOUS ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of things that are much more enjoyable than smoking (as you are enjoying them). Example: “this cool refreshing drink of water is way more enjoyable than smoking”
