Keep Track of When and Why You Smoke

Think about when you smoke and why you smoke. Do this for the next few weeks. Keep a record of every cigarette you smoke. Use the Craving Journal. You will probably need one copy for every day.

You will find that you light up a lot without thinking about it. And you may be tempted to skip writing down some of the cigarettes you smoke. But keeping this journal is very helpful if you do it right. You'll learn about your smoking triggers. And you'll learn which cigarettes are your favorites. These facts will help you prepare to fight your urge to smoke.

After opening this file, print several copies so you can use one each day to keep track of your smoking habits.
