Anyway, I have been trying for about four weeks to find a way to stop that works for me and haven't given up trying yet.
I know how you feel, but dont be embarrased to say you have failed in a quit attempt. I post on here every failure and success so people can see that whilst some do it first or second time around. Some of us dont and i have been trying to get my head around stopping smoking for about a year not just a few weeks with a few failed attempts.
I have stopped smoking before for a period of 10 years so i know it can be done. But nicotine is so powerful (apparently more addictive than heroin) so dont change your name, but above all else dont feel like a failure and dont give up. Someone on here once said to me you have only failed if you stop trying !!! I havnt and nor should any of you failed QUITTERS. People on here are great and supportive etc but we all know we have to do this for our selves.
STAY STRONG LIKE THE ENGLISH BULL TERRIER
