I have to admit - when I learned and admitted that a trigger was NOT an excuse to smoke I succeeded in my quit. Have a great day! KTQ Cara D4647


Triggers vs. Excuses From twilly123 on 6/7/2006 11:35:29 AM

A trigger is a thought or action that reminds us of smoking, an excuse is using that trigger as a reason to smoke again. Identifying triggers and dealing with them are part of what it takes to quit and stay quit. Triggers will pop up along the way but that’s all they are just a little reminder of a previous habit, they can easily be dismissed if you have the determination to stay quit, don’t make excuses out of them.

    One can rationalize anything - I should know as I did it for years! The bottom line is that we all make our own choices. No one or nothing decides things FOR you!
