  • hey Alan.................welcome back!!!

    we have all been where you are ................its crap but you have a quit to get on with ............you know people will be here for you !!!!!

  • OK, the fact you relapsed sucks it was a bad judgement call, you know it we know it, but shit happens!

    As you say put it behind you, move forward and don't dwell on the past.

    You know how it works, so take it forward, and never have a single drag ever again.

    We'll be here to offer support, whenever you need it.

    All the best with your new quit.

  • DDDDDDDD Damn

    Alan..

    was it a few puffs or even 1 or 2 fags.

    what have you smoked exactly?

  • I've done nearly 10 months.

    My husband has gone skittling (a Somerset thing). He won't be back til 11.30.

    Got a Vodka tonic.

    Last temptation put his (left at home) baccy and papers in safe!!!!

    Why, why, why do I want that rollie I've just rolled

    HELP

    DONT! It would make you feel sooo bad.

    Just remember how far you've gone, you have been choosing a better life for 10 months, don't let the nicodemon convince you that you need him, you don't.

    Cheers

    Nic

    Ps I used to be a regular skittler.

  • Thanks for that!!

    Downed the Vodka tonic

    Baccy now on wood burner!!!!!

    Will face the wrath (ha ha) in the morning!!!

    Again, thanks guys and gals..................

    BUT WHY...............

    I stopped smoking on 18th November 2007.................

    Maybe it was the fact that I'd smoked for 45 years.............

    FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I LOVED BEING SOME ONE WHO DOESN'T SMOKE

  • Right now there is a crow sitting by the chimney pot, he's just got his 1st taste of Golden Virginia! Poor bugger!

  • Thanks Nic,

    Off to bed before the skittlers get back........

    Best get the bicarb out because no doubt the skittle supper was pretty crap.....

    Don't need to hear the results..........

    Sorry if this is a purely selfish post..Newbies take note.. It's a long and winding road (but that's another story).....Perhaps Mojo could start that one.........

    Maybe it's the voddy... who's your real favourite NOSTALGIC musicians...

    I'll start...

    Dave Edmunds and Jennifer Warnes......

    Voddys kicking in now.............

    Again thanks

    Nite Nite;)

  • Nite Nite,

    Not really a nostalgic musitions kinda person but closest would be

    Frank Zappa

  • Alan - soooo sorry to hear the beastie:eek: got you...brave decision to get back on the quit straight away...

    At least this time you know what's coming your way and you know you can deal with it...

    You've been strong before you can be strong again...

    It can't possibly be as bad this time as you've not smoked that much...have you?!?!:confused:

    Don't beat yourself up...there but the grace of god go all of us...

    GOOD LUCK

  • Pru...

    very impressed with your resistance - not sure I could be left alone with a cigarette:mad:

    I agree though, it is a very long winding road and maybe it is a factor that we both smoked for so many years...40 in my case:eek: that even after what I feel is a long time (5months) quit I still sometimes really really want a cigarette...not a chemical crave but a mental one...it annoys me intensely!!!

    Nostalgic musicians... Cream...

    hope you're sleeping tight...

  • Well done Pru,

    You did absolutely the right thing coming on here ...

    great that you kicked it into touch (and into the fire) before you did the mad thing.

    Jeez, it sticks, the old smoking habit..How come it's just around for so L-O-N-G.

    Give yourself a pat on the back and think up a reward...

    Bill:)

  • Good on ya

    Alan

    Welcome back mate - now stop beating ya self up, I know it's a shitty thing I've been there but the best thing is your back.

    Someone on here on there signature (can't recall who) has a statement -

    "Failure is not quitting, failure is not getting back up" or something like that, but it's true.

    Hope day one goes well for you, but if not come on and have a rant. :D

    Failure isn't falling over, failing is not getting back up again.

  • It is silly to have new quit imho. Old quit, new quit - it the same quit. Smoker doesn't need to remember his quit day after the moment this day is over. We do not need to celebrate 1 week or one month or 1 year anniversary of the quit.

    You have so many opportunities in life that you don't need to waste your time thinking about your old sins like smoking or relapse. You understood that you don't need smoking one day, that has a value, so, it's time to understand what you need without cig in your hand.

    I do not want you to forget that you was a smoker, but it's not a reason for proud. It's better to have any other reason for proud than the one that you quitted smoking. Smoking you or have relapsed, you do need to feel any bad emotions. Just go forward and never look back!

  • Been a long winding road

    Hi Alan

    I haven't been on here for a few weeks now and don't know why I did this morning, but am glad I have as I wouldn't of seen your post.

    It is such a shame that you have gone back to smoking again after all this time but you are a very strong man and you can do it again. Your posts in the past have really kept me going and it is nearly six months for me tomorrow, never thought I would ever get this far and occasionally I do think to myself that it would be quite nice to have one but most of the time the thought and smell of them makes me physically sick.

    When I did lapse in the early months and had those few puffs, I tried not to dwell on it and instead thought about all those weeks that I hadn't been smoking and that is what you have to do.

    Pick yourself up, dust yourself down and go for it!

    Am going keep coming on here to check your progress. Go Alan Go alan (doing a funny dance now)!

  • thanks della.

    very nice of you to say them lovely word. i did feel sorry for myself. but now

    im strong again. and will do it. keep looking in. nice to hear from you;)
