I thought I might ask for some of the messed up or irrational thinking that have led others to cave or near cave in the past.
The one that's caught me in the past is:
"Chewing is the only thing that really brings me joy"
I now know that that "joy" was really just the relief from the daily withdrawal rollercoaster that you put yourself through as an addict. (oh, the freedom from that constant rollercoast will be worth the journey)
I have also faltered in the past with a single celebratrory chew that returned me to the chains, "Just one, because I've made it so far..."
Hearing your thoughts that you've gotten out of your head for your successful quits would be useful.
