I have to confess that I went on vacation and completely disregarded everything I went through to quit smoking and bought a pack. Smoked most, shared some, left a few somewhere. I didn't want to start over from a slip up or two, but this time was too much. Either way, I'm back at day 2, originally started January 1st, quitting again February 27th.
I'm surprised that the chemical dependency comes back so fast, even just smoking 1 or 2 a day for a few days. I hope that once the nicotine is gone agian, and I've already went through the however many stages of quitting smoking recently, that I won't have many of the other side effects again.
Staying quit is much much much easier than quitting over and over again. May all you new and renewed quitters do better than I have. Good luck!
