Quitting smoking can be a long and hard process. But staying tobacco-free is the longest and most important part of it. Every day you must decide to stop smoking “today”. Each day that you don’t smoke is a small victory. These all add up to a huge victory over time. Many of the things you did to help you quit smoking can help you stay quit and gain that victory. Focusing to the other stuff and do not think about smoking can help too. Giving more attention and love to your dog instead is a good distraction.
Being busy everyday taking care of your dog will help you distract your need to smoke. Dog needs a lot of attention; it will alert your urge to smoke. First you can make feeding schedule for you and your dog. Three times a day at the exact time will train your dog and you to be discipline. Using automatic dog feeder can help you make the tight schedule. Then take your dog in to the park to get the fresh air. Fresh air is good for your lung. If you get used to that discipline time, I am sure that you can discipline yourself not to touch smoke ever again. Just tell yourself that you can do it. Then you can.
