Day 1 again

Here i am on day one again. I need all the resolve that i can muster and hopefully by coming to this forum and using the tolls I can at last free myself from the self loathing that smoking initiates in me. I do not want to smoke for a myriad of reasons and have stopped many times however something inside me persuades me that once a smoker always a smoker. The many different levels of addiction can be most persuasive in rationalising picking up that stick. Hopefully by posting here I will be able to conquer the moments of discomfort.

Thank you

Welcome Maloryprop1, good luck with your quit, I amsure you will find lots of support and encouragement here!


Hi Maloryprop1

Welcome back and Join the Club.

I've just been doing a little bit of reading on here and I think most of us have a few failed quit attempts under our belt so you're not alone there.

I think the only way is to take it one day at a time whilst trying to keep a fixed grin on our faces. My quit's going well apart from a couple of 'wobbles' but I'm still hanging on for dear life and I've decided to 'lighten up' as well. I know it's going to take a while to get used to so I might as well try and keep smiling.

I wish you luck and I hope this will be your time to quit for good too, we can do it if we really want to.

Well done in jumping back on to the wagon, Malory, and welcome to the site! :)

We're all a bit bonkers but have helped each other through some amazingly tough times. Use the forum for whatever you need. A good rant, questions that need answering, whatever. You'll always find someone who is/was in a similar position to you :)

Good luck!


Well done peeps you learn from earlier attempts so batten down the hatches and bring it on.


Well done, if you fail draw a line and carry on. We all have slip ups


Well done for starting again and not giving up. I had many failed attempts over the years and stupidly gave up trying until recently.

Use this forum as much as you need to, the support is amazing. :)
