Back to sq 1

After 11 days off the smokes it the got the better of me, I moved house on Saturday and in a weak moment I took a smoke off one of my helpers, 1 puff let to another puff which lead to a whole smoke and then wallop, before you know it smoking away again.

I have no one to blame but myself I know moving is stressful and I fully understand that smoking solves nothing, it does not make any given situation any better in fact it makes them worse, but I think I know my enemy better now I know his tactics and I know I can beat him, so here I am again on day 1 back on the patches and longing for another crack at the title.

Oh for all the other newbie’s on here “Welcome and all the best in your efforts to quit”

    maybe you should have a read at the pages in the following link

    This may help you to understand why you caved and hopefully prevent it happening again.

    Maybe something in there will "click" and stop you in the future.
