Want to hear about my bizarre cravings?

I quit smoking over 16 months ago. Lately I've had surpisingly strong cravings though. I think I've figured out why.

I smoked while I nursed Savannah. I remember reading that I should limit smoking so that I wouldn't do it right before she ate. I would smoke directly after.

So now that I'm nursing Sadie, I've noticed that while I nurse her I get these extremely strong cravings. I'm wondering if I'm associating nursing with getting to go smoke. It's really weird. Click here to enlarge

I have not given in. They aren't that strong. Click here to enlarge

I never thought I could...
Steady feet, don't fail me now


I don't remember what day this is without coffee, but it's a day and it's going.

I've found that one of the most difficult things with quitting smoking is the association/habit thing. I really think that you're correct in thinking that you're cravings have to do with when you used to smoke. Really, it's no different than people who have bad cravings after a cup of coffee, or with a beer, kwim?

Anyway, you've done phenomenally well and I have no doubt that you can keep it up. Click here to enlarge
