  • Hi Marg, quitting any addiction is a constant personal struggle, and a large part of that struggle is purely in your head

    should i, shouldn't i, i'll just have one, no i won't, i do want one, i don't want one.....and on and on and on.

    The fact that you keep coming back here and keep trying shows that you have that desire in you to quit for good, keep trying!!!

    YOU WILL GET THERE!!!!:) :) :)

  • Don't try to do everything all at once, i would suggest drinking your normal levels of alcohol just avoid going out on a right bender for the first month or two!!

    Try and plan things to do instead of smoking, reading, writing, gym, walking etc

    just because this is another attempt does not mean that you shouldn't put your all into it!!

    cash for ash jar, plan your rewards all those things to help give you the push you need

    Are you using or considering any form of NRT?

  • Keep trying!

    You can do it!

    Stay away from too much alcohol, i have had a few tins, but stayed reasonably sober

  • Take it 1 day at a time you can do it:)
