Trying Again!

Hello all:

I gave up July 1st last year after being on 20-30 a day for 20 years. Was doing really well until a month ago, but then used stress as an excuse and had a cigarette. Could really really kick myself. Started smoking between 3-4 a day. Stopped again last Thursday and now finishing up day four.

It has been a really hard day. I recognise that I mostly want to smoke when I'm bored, but I really had forgotten how hard it was.

Very nice to be back reading all this though, had forgotten how comforting this is. About an hour ago I was going to go and buy a packet of fags, but reading this forum convinced me otherwise.

Day five, here I come!

  • Nooooooooooooo! You did the right thing coming on here, so we can nag you into not smoking!

    I remember how all consuming the first few days are and would like to take this opportunity to remind you that this too shall pass!

    I remind myself of the first week all the time, just incase i am ever tempted to crave,

    Hope ya do it this time! Good on you for stopping again :D

  • hiya and welcome!!

    dunno if id call this place comforting but hey, your soooo welcome! :p

    day 5, bring it on! :)

  • Hi Tabatha

    welcome back i guess, although i am sure you wish you weren't here.

    You have made the right decision again and hopefully you will find it easier this time to quit than you did the last time.

    I guess you have found the truth in the Mantra "never take another puff".

    perhaps you forgot how hard it was to quit before, or maybe, like so many others you thought "i'll be ok, its just this one".

    Never mind. You now know how easy it is to be sucked back into nicotine addiction and hopefully you will find it easier to quit this time.

    Day 5 should be easier than day 4 (remember) and it will start to get easier after that.

    Read as much as you can again (see the links in my sig) for some reinforcement for your quit, whyquit is great so is woofmang.

    Stay strong and keep posting.

  • Hey Tabitha,

    Welcome back (so to speak)

    (* gives hard kick up the backside)

    Thanks for the reminder that we can never become complacent or let our guard down as far as 'Ol Nic is concerned :mad:

    Thankfully, you quickly saw the error of your ways and remembered that YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE A SMOKER! (sorry for shouting!)

    Be on your guard and you will soon have your head back where it was a few months ago. Stick around this site - it can be a great help as you already know :)

  • Hi Tabitha

    I remember you from last your i caved too and started back Jan 1st this year. stick with it you have not been back smoking long so maybe you will get back on track faster. hope so anyway off to work now speak later. xxxx

  • We've all been there, well I have a hundred times before. Hopefully this is my very last quit.....

    Good for you to get back onto another quit so soon, I guess thats the best way really.

    You can do it!! x

  • cheers

    thanks for all the support. Day five and still going slowly mad. Hoping it will start to ease off. I am a very good warning as to why you don't even smoke a puff! Although am eating excessive amounts of cake!

    Thanks again, will keep reading, and value the help
