whew!

well, i must admit, even though ive been here b4 this is tougher than i expected.

i was only back on the fags for a few weeks, just having two or three a day, thinking i could take it or leave it, when now i realise i was once again as dependent as i ever was!

I think it has helped me accept the fact though that once youre an addict you are always an addict, and I cant just have one puff and let that be that, in the same way an alcoholic cant have just one drink.

I dont think i even realised this properly the last time i quit, but i do now.

see you all at day 4!

charlene. :D

    As most folk on here know I've smoked for 25yrs and spent the last 9 yrs trying to quit (not very well I might add!) I must've tried every method going (patches,gum,lossies,zyban,hypnotherapy et al) to no avail - longest I managed was a week.This time is different - mainly due to champix but also

    because I've ACKNOWLEDGED the fact tha I am a 'nicotine addict' and so cannot even have the odd drag. 'A single cig is too many ,yet a thousand isn't enough' You are so right Charlene. We have to have determination and willpower to say a resounding NO even to a single puff!;)

  • best of luck charlene and kazza.

    see your both determind to do it.

    Yeah ist a f'ing blast allright:D

    I just keep trying to remind myself that everything bad would actually be worse not better with cigarettes and that most of the things that I am stressed about now I was stressed about before anyway.
