i was on here and quit in march and was part of the March to Freedom group and with the help and encourangement from this forum, i ALMOST made the 6 month mark. HOWEVER.... in august i was on holiday in Turkey for 2 weeks and was constantly surrounded by smokers (something i hadnt experienced in a LONG time). i was stupid to believe people when they told me that they 'only smoke on holiday' and though yeah, i cant do that! nope - i have smoked ever since cant believe i crumbled. This is the first i have come on here as i am so ashamed at myself - i genuinely felt i would never smoke again and now i am square 1 scared that i wont have strength to go through it all again. hence since i failed in august ive just continued to smoke
Ive now realised i need to face up to this mistake - put it behind me and quit again. i'll get there and it'll be worth it!!
I dont think i would have failed if i hadnt neglected this forum after 3 or 4 months of being quit - its like i stopped coming on and forgot all the advice (MAINLY - THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ONE CIGARETTE!) So if i do it this time i am here to stay - even if its just to help other new quitters.
I dont know if it will be tomorrow that i quit. i would like it to be and will spend the rest of my evening convincing myself to do it. But i just dont want to promise that on here yet. however there's no time like the present
PS I quit with nicorette mini's - they are amazing for me. if i take one then guaranteed in 5 mins i wont want to smoke. so that will be my method. C'MON! thanks for listening/reading - love to all x
