Hoping you can help with an interesting model from today:
C: Fedex never rang my doorbell and didn’t leave my package, and now the tracking says “Customer wasn’t home” (this happened yesterday too)
T: I’ve been home the entire time
A: Pace around the room screaming expletives, experience an urge to smoke, smoke
R: Instantly relax and regain composure (while thinking the EXACT same thought)
The chemical reaction from smoking is what caused my brain to relax. I’m still thinking the same thought, but my physical and mental state has been altered from smoking.
So, is the urge to smoke a separate model, where the urge becomes a circumstance? Even though I’m still thinking the same thought about the Fedex situation…
What about the physical feeling of relief I experience from the chemical reaction of smoking in my brain? I’m thinking the same thought, but my physical and mental state has been altered.
