Hope this thread finds you all well?
The purpose of this thread is that I have been reading loads on the forum recently regarding blips in quit. I am beginning to think that it is all down to how you feel with the blip, how you feel in yourself as a person and I suppose what your original smoking level was.
However I am more than happy to be shot down in flames, I shall give you some examples and if you want respond back with your opinions on whether you think that is a blip or not!
1. Quit for 1 month use to be on 30 a day smokes 5 cigs in a week? Blip or not?
2. Quit for 7 months use to be on 10 a day smokes 10 cigs in a week? Blip or not?
3. Quit for 12 months use to be on 60 a day smokes 5 cigs in a day? Blip or not?
As I said above I'm not sure of the right and wrong answers, just wanted your feedback. A lot of posts re blips seem to be people really hard on themselves for example "I've been quit 3 months and I smoked on Saturday night, back to day 1 for me!" well I'm thinking you've been quit 3 months, you stumbled, but you used to be XX a day you had one cig, don't beat yourself up carry on with your quit.
Anyway thats enough for now, I look forward to your responses
