Susan, thank you so much for posting the info on PAWS...

I read it all, and I could absolutely see where, in previous quits, I’d literally set myself up to fail....And such a weight off knowing that this can go on for two years, so it is ‘normal’.....

Thank god for you, and this forum - I’m learning so much

WOW What a weekend Trials and tribulations. This is where in the past I would haVE CAVED IN. I DIDN"T but i felt sorry for my wife. I was on total bitch mode. Up andf down and all around the head was in total fog. I'm glad I get to read about this being normal for a quit thru this forum or I would have put it all to an end and fired 1 of those bad boys up. and relaxed like I used too.  But take a deep breathe like a million times and get threw it. Beauty weekend weather enjoyed on sunday= saturday was bad- nothing helped that day. Well now that I got it all out I'll try to get through this week Day by Day and still Hour by Hour.m I don't like being a whinner. but just had to vent.                                                                                                               STILL saying NOPE TO THE SMOKE 17th OCT  2019

Hello all, 

I am feeling relief. The stress of Christmas planning is over. A deep breath has been taken.  Does anyone else have that sense of relief after Christmas?
