You have been smoke-free for a year. You are celebrating your one-year anniversary and it is time to reflect on the past. You are also aware that you must take one day at a time.
In this spirit, you try to answer the following questions:
- How do you plan to support this major change in your life as you move forward?
- What are the benefits you have seen over the past year?
- What are the major temptations you face each day you decide not to smoke a cigarette?
- What resources can you turn to help you on a day-to-day basis?
Post your responses to the questions and provide at least two references supporting your answers.
Once you do this, you will see that your answers partly reflect being in the maintenance stage of the Transtheoretical Model (TTM).
