I was on the boards here, I think back in February, and managed to stay quit for around 6 months. Then occasionally I started sneaking the odd one when drinking, and can feel the nicotine slowly grabbing hold of me again. These days I'm not that bad with the nicotine, as I can not smoke for a day or two. But I always seem to crack when I have a drink. The psychological hold is strong and my defenses are weakened. It's been a hell of a year, and I'm actually quite proud I made it through the rough bit without smoking. It's funny how when the worst was over, I started smoking again.
So, I'm coming on here to formally quit again.
Best of luck to all!
