Hi there, I was looking for the welcome thread and thought I would say hello.
After 11 years I stopped smoking in July 2010. This was my best quit to date and lasted for 3 months until I had just one and then became an occasional smoker having the one or two a day. Now then I decided it was stupid to continue doing tghe one or two as I could not go a day without one so I stopped again in December, that lasted until mid-March. All was going but a couple of stressful thing at work that made me very angry I bought a pack of smokes and had a few, after that I have been having a few ever since.
I know from my last quit attempts that even having one makes you feel as crap as having 10 or 20. Also I have found I can not physiclly smoke the 20 or so cigs anymore whithout feeling very sick.
Long story short I am very tired of being dependent on the ciggys. In my 'on and off' last couple of months I have lasted a few days but always relapsed on the weekends, then it took a couple of days to get off them again.
Anyhow, I am fed up bveing a nicotine slave and miss my non-smoker days when I could go weeks without thinking about having a smoke.
I migrated here from the US forum that chucked a wobbly when I confessed to a relapse.
