Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
So said C.S. Lewis
And that's pretty true of smoking. The past week has, for me, had its share of seriously stressful moments when, had a cigarette been available - I would have succumbed. But I didn't.
I now enter that period coming up to the six week period at which in the past I have failed. I do not expect the above quote to be 'permission' to fail, but rather an opportunity to prove C.S. Lewis right - that making attempts leads to success.
