What do people do all day without doing either of these?!
For all those little moments, like the kids are being hard to deal with, or work is being stressful, or you're waiting for something, or the kids are finally asleep and you have a moment alone, or you just want to go outside and take a break for 5 minutes, etc etc…
I haven't smoked since before I was pregnant, and there's zero chance of me actually taking it up again but I've started to really miss it just in the last few weeks. They're totally disgusting but it's an otherwise enjoyable habit/hobby. Instead I just eat way too much and am still 15kg above my pre-baby weight. But I don't know how to stop wanting to snack all the time and curb hunger pains without smoking instead.
Ugh I'm just generally feeling frustrated and grumpy about everything right now.
Any suggestions for healthier habits I could take up instead, or how to distract and refocus in those times that I'd normally go for a smoke or have something to eat? (I know replacing one habit with another isn't ideal, but one step at a time! :-P)
