Alone? Kind of but not really

My partner just went out of town for a week. One of my first thoughts was I could go by a pack of cigarettes and smoke like a crazy lady - and nobody would know. Then I realized I would know. :mad::D I have very mixed emotions about this. I am mad over the guilt and disappointment I would feel - and I am grateful of the guilt and disappointment I would feel. sigh...Day 24 - smoke free and fighting the cravings.

Stay strong hun :)

I know that feeling - and the thought that because I smoked for years with nobody having a clue that I could do that again has been a bit tempting - but there's nothing better in life as a smoker compared to be ing a non-smoker!!

YAY for the guilt if it keeps you on the wagon, and don't listen to nasty stinky Nic!!

I had that recently after nearly (as it was then) 11 months when I was away for a weekend, it was quite bizarre. It went away very quickly, it's just another death-rattle from the receptors in the brain. YOU WOULD KNOW! Just as I would have known the other week.

24 days is immense, great solid foundation, well done on not falling for another trigger ;)

Thanks everyone! I went to my Moms to hide from the nicotine monster. No way would I have a cigarette with her around. It was just tempting with the first real opportunity to go smoke without a chance of anyone knowing. This week could be a challenge - but I can do this. I know I can.

Angry Bear... Good job fighting the temptation and not lighting up. 11 Months is wonderful!!!! When is your 1 year Anniversary?

Mr. Bear - (you just don't seem angry to me ;) ) I just saw your one year Anniversary is in June. You should plan something big! A party? A vacation! It's a huge accomplishment!
