Why Do I Engage In The Addictive Behavior?
Restructure your life to make it harder for yourself to engage in the addictive behavior by using your past experiences and those you have recorded in your Stop Smoking Diary to answer the question “Why do I engage in the addictive behavior?

Be brutally honest with yourself and write down the reasons that make you engage in the addictive behavior. These might include peer pressure, seeking pleasure, loneliness, frustration, boredom, stress or sleeplessness.

After identifying your triggers, find other good habits to replace them. For example:
1. If you engage in the addictive behavior because of boredom, develop other hobbies that are not related to the addiction like playing Chess, doing Sudoku puzzles or sewing.

2. If you engage in the addictive behavior because it gives you pleasure, find other pleasurable activities to do that are not related to your addiction like watching movies or reading non-fiction books.

3. If you engage in the addictive behavior because of stress, regularly practice effective relaxation techniques like meditation and abdominal breathing.

Abdominal breathing is done by inhaling through your nose until your abdomen rises, holding your breath for a few moments and then exhaling completely through your mouth until your abdomen collapses.

Whenever you begin to feel stressed, repeat this cycle of filling your lungs with air, pausing and then emptying them until you begin to feel calm.
