Like she says, now what?
Is it really your last one or just your last one until you have another one and then have another last one? Here's a suggestion - straight from Healthline - make that last one count. Make a huge production out of it. Have a good-bye party with yourself or your friends. I went to a quit smoking group many years ago and that's exactly what we did. We smoked until a given meeting and then we brought the rest of what we had in a pack, put them in the center of the table, and said good-bye to them.
It may seem stupid, but this here's a big move! You decided to quit and you have to have a last one eventually. It's up to us to decide which one it's going to be and it's entirely in our own power to do that.
So, the now what can be something like downloading an app and keeping track of how much money you're saving, how many cigarettes you're not smoking, the advantages you're giving yourself in terms of better health, and all sorts of fun details. Some apps will send you text reminders and tips too.
Or you can ignore everything smoking related.
Those goddamned cigarettes have been there for you all this time, encouraging you to smoke. According to Allen Carr, the only reason you light up is because you're withdrawing from the last one you smoked. His method has helped a bunch of people. You don't have to take the course. Just read the book and do it.
There it is again - last one.
The last one is the most important one. Which one is it going to be and when are you going to take back your own decision making?
Have your last cigarette and then think, "now what?" Maybe even plan ahead for that "now what."
Keep your sense of humor about you.
