Hanging my head in shame

Hello all my new and old friends.

Yes, the news you didn't want to hear has arrived, I have fallen off the none smoking wagon. :(

Yes I am ashamed, yes I am upset, gutted, hurt and all the other emotions that go along with this however yes I am going to pick myself back up and try again.

I am sorry, 1st to myself, 2ndly to my partner and then to you all, everyone was such an amazing support to me and I feel so bad to have let everyone down.

I am going to try again, just not right now, I am going to give it a couple of weeks as I am just not in the frame of mind at the moment to jump right back on.

I think the mistake was trying to go cold turkey after taking Champix I thought it was just going to be as easy however sadly it wasn't and drinking and not smoking was my ultimate failure.

Anyhoo, as you know I haven't been on for a week or so and that was down to feeling to ashamed that I had started to smoke again.

Love to you all and to all the new friends on here please dont' let my failure put you off in any way!!!! I will still be here to support you all until I feel ready to climb back on and then I will be asking for your help again.

Love Shaz x

Come back when you're ready love...

Also - use this time to avoid the pitfalls next time. Don't be a stranger too long...:)


Aw Shaz, don't feel ashamed. You've had the guts to quit, blip, try again and then relapse..........so you've tried twice and that takes courage in itself.

Take time out to get yourself sorted.

You've now had first hand experience of your enemy, get to him even better, find his weak points but more importantly know and understand yours so he can't ambush you again.

We're here for you when you decide to fight the fight again Shaz.

Take care and don't be a stranger.



I wondered where you'd gone.

There's a lot of it about at the moment. :o

But I'm glad you came back here and told us rather than just disappearing. :)

When you're ready, climb back on. But don't leave it too long or the addiction will really get its claws in you.
