October 16 New Quit Date

Roxie80 profile image

I had 7 months of being smoke free and a panic attack spoiled that on October 4. I have smoked two cigarettes a day since then but today is the time to begin again. I think I need to learn some coping skills.

My sister and niece really told me off when they found out I was smoking. They didn’t take into consideration that maybe it was hard to give up 7 months. I am only human and I make mistakes and didn’t deserve that. My pulmonologist was even understanding and encouraged me. I will have to work on getting rid of this resentment but I am so mad.

Thanks for listening. I hope everyone has a great smoke free day.

Chin up Roxie, you’ll smash it this time. Panic attacks are horrible, you deal with them the best way you know how.

Thanks for the encouragement. I will begin again soon and stick to it. If I did it for 7 months I can do it again. I just have to convince my mind.

Ya shaming never works, and as if they don't have their own issues. I hope you can find a treatment that addresses panic attacks because that's a hard thing to live with. Take care of you and keep reaching out.

Thanks for your reply. It is hard starting over but I will soon. I have to just think about today and do my best not to smoke. It’s harder than I thought.
