Well, here I am again.
I doubt you'll remember me, but I stopped smoking on 1st January 2013. It's the only New Year's Resolution I ever really managed to keep, and despite being a 20 a day for 20 years smoker I didn't find stopping to be all that bad.
But, on December 18th 2013 and for no discernible reason (okay, it was alcohol related!) I had a cigarette.
And then another.
And the next day I finished the pack I'd bought. And so on....
So, here I am again in March 2014 with a patch on my arm and a non-smoker since I got up about 14 hours ago.
I'm going to do it all again. I'm ashamed and embarrassed to have started again. My beautiful 6 year old daughter doesn't know what smoking is, but really doesn't need a Daddy who smokes.
It really helped me to know that I could share my experience here last time, so that's why I'm back.
