Back to day one

Well I caved in to the nic demon yesterday twice

back to day one for me, except that its nothing like day one

Dont want a ciggy dont have cravings for one

only on the lowest dose patch.

My first day one was hard it was a struggle to get it over with

This day one has been a lot easier

I caved in because I lost the reason's why I quit

I remember now

nic demon wont get me that way again

I had a close shave yesterday where I bought, lit up but then thankfully put out. I've no idea why but like you, that was the end of it. Any thoughts I had of smoking, however slight have now gone.

Many peeps on here gave support and advice and most (actually all I think) pointed towards that being a blip and not a fail. A decision I guess you may have to make now!

Do you really need to go back to day one or was it just part of the quitting process for you?

I'll be your first supporter on the latter.

Guys this is totally understandable, I am on 9 weeks today and still I feel I could smoke. I won't smoke because I am so far forward and I don't want to smoke.

Mart I did the same as you on about my forth day I lit one stood and held it in my hand, smelt it, took a drag but didn't inhale it then threw the thing away. I think that is when I realised I did not want to smoke any more that it would no longer be my master.

It's still hard even now but it's more controllable if that's a word.

Demented it was just a way of telling you what you no longer want.

Good luck my friend.

Just regard it as a blip, Demented. There were only 2 and it seems you don't have any compulsion to smoke but rather learned that cigs aren't for you anymore. Add it to your experiences and don't look back.

Make sure that you try to become a lot more resistent to the lure of 'just one'.

Today's just another day not being chained to the slavery of nicotine.

Keep on keepin' on,

Well done getting back to your quit. I think some reading would be a help to you, there are loads in our signatures, it will help you to get your mind thinking about positive things instead of the rubbish we thought about cigarettes.

I second that! Education and the right frame of mind is imperative!! Well done for continuing to quit. It always took me months or years to get back on the wagon after a blip. I'd just cave completely. It shows you must be determined to do it .
