Like a bad penny


I’m back yet again. Fell off the wagon with an almighty bump this time around but on Friday 28th Nov I smoked the last fag I had and have not smoked since.

I know I can do this, but why at times am I my own worst enemy? For example I know I should not smoke but in the past there have been times when I think “One puff won’t hurt me” but it does and before I know it I am back on the dam things as if I have never stopped in the first place.

I will defeat this evil poison but I need to figure out where I am going wrong.

As has been said - read, but you need to get to the frame of mind where smoking as a concept does not attract you. Not easy but doable!

Welcome back HM, if it is any consolation - most successful quitters fail at least once before they manage to stay off.

You must do your homework though, as the others have said... read and read some more. For once you find something that really brings it home to you, your head will be in it to win it.

Good time of the year to cease;)

Educate yourself on the real reasons people smoke and above all just dont light a fag:D

So then HM

Hows had today been?

Like nic says you have to be in the proper mindset to succeed.

One puff will hurt it always does .People quit and succeed everyday.

You can be one of those people,but you really have to want it.
