Jia -

I am trying every day. There are still moments when I think we all think about smoking  not in a crave but just as a thought. Some of us dislike the smell of smoking others like me like the smell. That does not mean that I smell it and say oh I need a smoke. Just a thought that it smells good to me still.

Also when have unpleasant words with my brother, I think I could use a smoke about now - knowing I am not going to do it, but still goes through my mind.

No one left active in my group of March 2016, so I have been adopted by the March 2015 group and they still get the same thoughts - that is the addict in us all. Not every day, but they occur.

Sue you are right the thought of smoking does occur in the stressful times. Deep down the addict in us sometimes crave for another puff thinking that it’s a solution to the issue. It never is. It only adds to the stress . The disappointment you feel within about giving up is immense.I never want to be over confident in my quit. That was the reason behind many slip ups. I thought I had it in control but I gave up in weaker moments.It’s something I am always vigilant about. I keep reminding myself do I ever want to visit that dark place again where I was controlled by a substance.Nicotine is a monster which drags you down with it. It does get out of control. After living without it’s dependence I feel like a new person.Keep going strong.

So true Jia, 

Never want to give in and have that just one as I know there would be a lot more following it. Have never gotten close to that happening - the just one - and do not want to go there.
