Hi, a newbie here and decided I need some help.
Seven days without a cigarette and after a morning in tears because I'm not with my family at Christmas (I don't actually celebrate Christmas anymore but it's a family time for me)... and I went and bought a packet and smoked one. I can already feel my lungs tighten up again when all week they have felt clear. The previous days have been relatively easy and only a few cravings but today so far has been tough.
I am gutted that i am so weak and disappointed in myself.
Another thing i've noticed is that when i have a craving i want to eat something and my weight is bad enough as it is without the thought of putting on more. I cannot cope with additional weight gain but i also realise that logically, how can i even think about exercise when i'm puffing due to smoking!! No sense.
I DONT' want to go back to smoking again and I know that i cannot let a relapse hold me back. Never quit quitting.
Just have to get back on again and make a mental note of why I relapsed and ask others.. how can i prevent this happening again?
