Heartaches really suck. All that doesn’t matter and that one cigarette isn’t going to change anything. But it won’t just be the one anyways.
It’s a crisis and the recurrence rate of ex-smokers increases enormously during these times. Patent recipes don’t exist in this case and the fact, that just now you want to take care of yourself and don’t want to spend time thinking about the consequences of smoking (in case this is relevant), is clear. But one can also look at every crisis as a chance. A chance for a new beginning, which you can shape nicely.
Do you have to indulge the ex the triumph of suffering demonstratively? Can it be done differently? “Living well is the best revenge.” One can also see it this way. In the article “reframing” we explained the method. It works. While everyone expects you to waste away, you rise out of the ashes like a phoenix. It was a historic Greek, who also already knew the method.
You have to reinvent yourself more often. The more elegantly you do it, the better you come across. It does leave an impression, when you look ahead courageously in spite of the unavoidable sorrow. There are no alternatives. Be a phoenix.
