I wanted to make sure that I knew what was causing me to crave a cigarette. The more a thought about it, the more I realized that the only time I really wanted a cigarette was when I was feeling strong emotions or I was very bored. I think that if I focus on what I am feeling and why, I will be able to avoid having a cigarette when I experience strong emotions. It's the boredom that really worries me. I know that I have been feeling bored a lot recently. I just don't know how to cope with that one. I guess I need to figure that out soon.
As I continue my life with PTSD, I will share my challenges and discoveries on this blog.
