It's a very good idea to change some of your daily routines to avoid the trigger moments. I love sitting down with a G&T before dinner at 6pm to watch the news - and feel very deprived when I don't have one. If, however, we go out for lunch so we're not having dinner - I don't even think about having one - not at lunchtime or all evening. Just habit as much as anything.Also agree very strongly with Hosta's advice not to think too far ahead. You're not smoking this morning. This afternoon / evening / tomorrow will take care of themselves.Good luck🙂

Topbird said: I think so much of what we do is habit. How often have you thought, " I fancy a cuppa" then you have a biccy too? At no point did you really think, I'll have a biscuit, then make tea/ coffee.
I also found my habits were linked o the clock: 6pm, have a beer, 7pm open bottle of wine.
As I've never said " I'm never drinking again", I don't feel the pressure of keeping to that promise.
You of all people know what it does to a healthy body, let alone one with a knackered heart. Behave yourself.

Good idea with the list- I’m planning my new border so lots of time to research and make lists!
Tea time/evening will be my hardest time, the ‘and relax’ time of the day, but even though im not concentrating on it, I’m aware of it and trying to look upon it as a challenge rather than a hurdle. 😬
