Day 76 (or Day 1!)

Ok so yesterday I had a dark moment and bought a pack after 75 days clean. Smoked 4 and threw away the pack. Stopped using gum as I think it was messing with me. Today was not too bad but I am feeling that black moment coming up again but I really don't want to smoke but its this internal battle. To make matters worse yesterday I came clean to my wife which did not go down too well! Deep down I really want to smoke as I miss it but the rational self knows that I should not! Please don't batter me :)

  • Hello ptr247 . Sorry to hear that you are having a hard time of it.

    I think that the internal struggle you describe is also known as addiction. I know the feelings you describe very well indeed. Really, the only way through is to just try to keep going. The feelings do subside but all it takes is one single puff to fire everything back up again (voice of experience here)!

    Don't buy anymore - however much you want to. It is so easy to relapse literally within hours.

    Keep plodding on .

    You can do this. ☺☺
