Fallen and getting back up!

Ok, so I have fallen off and smoked so today I am at day one again. I'm not going to beat myself up, just try again. I got a patch here and the lozenges, but I really want to get the nic out of my system.

I don't understand why a man and not one that we are in a true committed relationship can get to me and stress me and then I turn to cigs! So I just have to tell myself he is not worth me losing my quit and deal with it in a different way, it's like him and the nic demon is winning and I should be the only one winning!

So, I have to try again.

Hi Mic,

Sorry to hear about you having to start day 1 again, but that is now in the past.

There really is no reason to beat yourself up most of us here have done day 1 more times than we care to remember!

So you can now see your trigger, and that makes it easier to deal with. You are completly right that the quit is the most important thing and nothing and nobody should come before that.

Read, read, read, and of course post often to let us know how you are going.

Hi Michelle,

It will be day 1 again for me tomorrow. I said I was going to quit today but it all got a bit too much and I ended up caving in. :(

We can do this. I will look out for you tomorrow.

Well Done Mic

Hi Mic , Well done for realising that you "slipped". It has happened to me before on previous quits and despite not beating yourself up over it you will become a stronger person for realising that you have had to start all over again.

Before you know it you will be well on your way along the road again to quitsville and feeling better in yourself.

Good luck !:D
