Day 26

Hi,

I think its been almost a year or maybe more since i last posted on here. Unfortunately i had a relapse and started smoking again. Its taken me about a year to get focused on giving up again.

I am now on day 26 with step 2 patches. I gotta say it hasn't been easy, i have suffered quite a few anxiety attacks, but things do seem to be getting better.

The main reason for posting today is because i just wanted to say that you shouldn't be too hard on yourself if you don't make it the first time or even the second. This is my third attempt and i have got to say i am more focused than i was when i first tried as I now know exactly how to get through the first few months without giving in.

Good luck peeps its a doddle on the third attempt (well kind of anyway :D)

  • thanks guys

    Although it is getting easier , i still have cravings even now with my patch on.

    Thankfully the thought of having a ciggie does not appeal anymore so i keep soldiering on.

    Im glad my first post of the day is helping ppl! We all know its not easy .. but we also know it DOES get easier.. look to the future in that respect.
