Quit Date

I NEED to do this again. Things are starting to calm down and I have to STOP. Its only been a little over a week now, so I should be good. I keep seeing the we quit date of March, but I definitely cannot wait that long. I have it in me mentally and emtionally as I proved to myself over the past 8 months that I don't NEED the cigarettes in my life. If I could do this Cold Turkey, I can suffer and do it again. I sat here and pondered why, but its not about why, we ALL know its a daily struggle sometimes. Its like an alcoholic who stops drinking. I'm sure they think about drinking daily. I can't keep beating myself up. What's done is done.

I WILL conquer this. I WILL defeat evil. I WILL continue to be devoted to live a healthier life. Thank you for ALL of your support in my set back. I will be back on the band wagon before you know it. The sooner the better.

Kyle

Think about it this way - pretend it's now March, and you're taking a moment to look back and reflect for a while with a beer and some good buddies. Are you:

A) still waiting to quit, knowing that you really must, and bemoaning the fact that you gave away a perfectly good quit albeit as a result of a catalyst of very bad news;

B) happy that you quit a few weeks ago? Or a couple of months? Was it a New Years resolution? Are you through the tough first weeks yet?

C) delighted that you're now very comfortable again having quit roughly a year ago but with a blip for a couple of weeks part of the way through your first year?

I really hope it's the third scenario Kyle! The earlier you make the decision the better the odds, go get it! :)

I second that, go for it now Kyle, treat it as a blip and not a fail - you know you can do it ;)
