Well i was doing great or so i thought i stopped smoking in december it was my first serious attempt.
The months prior to this i read allen carrs book and although i didnt stop after reading it i must say it changed my outlook on smoking.
All the time i was smoking i was thinking i must stop.
In december i became very ill and as always i developed a chest infection but this time i just thought enough is enough i felt so ill smoking and just stoped.
The next day i went to a stop smoking group and she recommened i use patches and gum so for 3 months used patches and i think i became hooked on the gum.
Up untill i smoked again i was using 8 pieces a day.
Well my reason/excuse was i went on holiday for 2 weeks and within 3 days i decided i will just have one.
I honestly believed cause i had stopped i could just stop again no problems well i was wrong.
And now 6 weeks later i am puffing like a chimney and feel so disapointed in myself.
Last weekend i tried again and didnt last a day i just dont know how i am going to stop again as i am back to being scared to stop.
I am reading allen carr book again and i dont know whether to go back on patches, try something else like champix, or try to go cold turkey.
The reason i think i started again was i felt like i was missing out by not smoking mad i know but that feeling didnt leave me.
I really want to stop again and have learnt i cant just have one but im scared at the same time.
Anyway thas were i am at any help appriciated
