The primary goal of my behavior change project is not to quit smoking but to cut back on the amount of cigarettes that I smoke per day Since I enjoy smoking after I eat I plan to allow myself a cigarette after each meal after that I am allowing myself three other cigarettes per day This will total six cigarettes per day which may seem like a lot to some people but this is a dramatic cutback This is a six week project in which each week I will subtract one cigarette from the total until I reach zero cigarettes per day I feel that this goal was definitely attainable and realistic If I would have followed the planned routine then this plan would have been effective The goal was a definite challenge seeing that I would usually smoke at the least half a pack of cigarettes per day Though the plan was a good plan I wasnt able to stick to it If I was to change anything about the plan it would be that I would give my cigarettes to a friend and they would give one at that time The biggest barrier to the plan is being around other friends who smoke When they lite up it automatically makes me want a cigarette Another barrier is partying with my friends everyone knows that when you consume alcohol it enhances your desire to smoke Alcohol makes you smoke like a chimney A helpful measure to overcome this barrier would be to chew more gum or to have a toothpick or a straw in my mouth I dont believe that I am addicted to nicotine I just think I have an oral fixation Ive got to have something in my mouth this probably stems from a thumb sucking problem I had when I was little Sure enough I encountered both of these barriers which were often at the same time
