Good afternoon fellow quitters.
I think this is probably my 4th or 5th quit attempt and I am feeling a similar pattern emerging, like everybody else I have some obstacles in my life at the moment that I need to overcome, I noticed that in my previous quits These times in particular were the times that required the most strength to overcome, particularly an attempt this time last year when my business failed which resulted in me starting smoking again.
I can remember back in 2005 I stopped smoking and stayed smoke free for over a year and a half until starting again late 2006 again using a challenging time in my life as a reason to start again.
I refuse to use this as a reason to start again
This is how smoking makes me feel!!!!!!!!
Smoking makes me feel weak
Smoking makes me feel ashamed
Smoking makes me feel guilty
Smoking makes me feel insecure
Smoking makes me feel not in control
Smoking makes me feel tired
Smoking makes me angry
Smoking makes me feel like shit !!!!!
I have read a lot of posts on this forum and have been visiting the site for many years although haven't posted or interacted with the forum as much as I feel I should have done, I Feel a great sense of gratitude and appreciation to Everybody on this forum which has no doubt helped me in my quit, reading about everybody's experiences and journeys through their quit , sometimes happy sometimes sad but always fascinating and interesting, I want to thank everybody here for their support and wish everybody strength and hope for the future.
