Noki4, How are you doing with the smoking cessation journey?
I have never smoked but I really feel the struggle that others have when trying to quit smoking.
Beating yourself up is counter productive. Be extra gentle with yourself, Self compassion is so important to our survival and well being. I used to beat myself up for all sorts of things. I learned to stop doing this and now I have a little saying I have posted in various parts of the house. (on my computer screen, on the mirrors, on the inside of cupboard doors) each time I find myself saying something negative to myself about myself I say “I forgive myself for that thought; I chose love instead” It really works. Try it and see what it does for you.
