In October, I managed to quit cigarettes for a little over 5 weeks. I did it with the help of this forum and the wonderful people here who helped me through the rough days. I was stupid to go back, I was well over the worst of it. No severe cravings. I was angry with myself about something. I think smoking, for me, is a form of self harm. That probs sounds a bit extreme for most but it's what has got me back on the cigarettes every time I have managed a successful quit. I had two seven year periods smoke free and both times I gave in when I felt angry at myself about something. Anyway, I'm back to do this again....and I am hoping that this time really will be the last. I don't like smoking at all....in fact I hate everything about it. So tomorrow will be my day 1.
