Lapsed

I lapsed, 5 days of smoking. Couldn't manage not to smoke around a 60 a day smoker and difficult family situation.:(

Reset my siggy and my quit meter.

Will have to think new strategy for being around my Dad.....:confused:

It's amazing how I literally went from not smoking to 20 a day, feel bad, even worse because my partner smoked too because I was smoking.

    Sorry about your laps but I can understand you my partner smokes 40 plus a day, Havent spoke to me for three weeks plus other stresses. I am really struggling big time. Just got to hope we will get there in the end. To be honest the only thing thats stopping me giving in is I think everyone will hate me Linda xxx

    Sorry to hear your having such a tough time. You've been quit for so long it would be such a shame if you lapsed. People wont hate you for lapsing, if you're like me you will hate yourself...not a nice feeling.

    After 5 weeks quit I should have known better, it had got easier, didn't even think about smoking most of the time. It's when something unexpected happens or we feel the stress that we are at our weakest. I know it's an idea to think up strategies for stress etc, but the unexpected sudden stressful situation is more difficult to deal with.....as I found out. Well I'm going to be straight up about this and just start again (as I have) and keep going.

  • Hi there Maeagain,
