Way to go Lori!

yeah I’ve seen you struggle & come thru it now you’re just about at a month!  You are a true inspiration to me & I know if you can do it then so can I. This forum & our quit buddies make the difference for me. Keep up the good quit, girl!

Hi Nykers & Dwight

our junkie thinking sure does play tricks with our minds. It will sneak in thought of smoking at the times we are the most vulnerable. I had to wait for the doctor for an extra long time yesterday in an extra cold room & I started to just want to get out of there & have a cigarette because that’s what I’ve always done in the past. But instead I finally got to see the doctor & I told him of my frustrations. He apologized & of course he’s extra happy that I’ve quit smoking too.

Frustration seems to be my biggest trigger but the thought of smoking can cross my mind at any timebecause I smoked at any time.  The trick is to not listen to these thoughts & to let them pass thru & they will get less & less as long as we don’t smoke. Keep up the good work & keep taking it one day at a time.

CONGRATULATIONS on 30 days smoke free. What an amazing accomplishment!! The 1st month is definitely the hardest and I hope you are feeling like it is getting better. Just focusing on one day at a time really helps, then let the days pile up. Still works,the same way for me even 132 days into this.

Stay strong, breathe and love your smoke-free life.

Wow Michele,

CONGRATULATIONS on 2 MONTHS!!!  That is so awesome!  I remember when you first got on the Forum and look at you now.  You are doing great!

Dwight,

I feel this all the time...especially doing yard work.  Having a smoke was my reward.  I also have a trigger with cooking and/or grilling.  So you are not alone and the strangest things do set off triggers.  Just wait...some are seasonal so we have a year to get through all of them.  Hang in there, you're doing great!

Hi Lori,

How are you?

Just using Champix at the moment, but I crashed last night, I had some disturbing news about my son. Never mind will pick up from here somehow.

Its day 8 on Champix today with an increase in dose, so see if that makes a difference.

Kind regards

Anthony

Hi Alison,

The important part is you got back on the horse!  Don't beat yourself up.  We had a friend's son stay over this weekend and he left his Marlboros on my kitchen island.  Even though my husband still smokes, just seeing those laying there was really bothering me.  I moved them twice and then told my husband if he didn't get them out of my sight, they were going in the garbage.  And I'm going on 5 months!  They weren't even my brand but close enough.  

So, hopefully this relapse just make you stronger.  Did it make you feel better to have that one cigarette?  It doesn't really sound like it.  You can do this!  If you have a craving to light up again,  get on this forum and post and say you're not going to light up until you get 3 responses to your post.  By then, you'll be over it (and happy you didn't do it).  I've been talked off the ledge quite a few times during my first month.  Stay close and just don't smoke.
