Congrats! Great job.....keep it up, didn’t read your whole blog, but some.....are you still using the herbal cigarettes?

Thank you!

I know, there's a lot...but it helped me, at least! ;)

Nah, I laid off the herbal smokes after finishing Allen Carr's Easyway book. I did have a couple the following week, and then two since then. Last time, in mid October, it just inflamed my nose so bad I couldn't enjoy it. I keep them around as a security blanket because at least it doesn't put me back in the nicotine trap.

To all of you lovely ladies on forum land I soooooooooooooooooo wish I had read this before lighting up again on the dreaded 14 day mark.

All of what you were saying were what I was feeling and I just couldn't do it, AND I have not told anyone I have relapsed so  now I am a closet smoker to boot.

Going doggie sitting at the weekend at a smoke free house so roll on Friday - back to day one AGAIN.

Aw, nuts! But that's fantastic that you have the new plan in place. Get right back on that horse!! <3

Yes, seven months is a milestone.

But the REAL milestone was not noticing and having to figure out why SusanK was congratulating me.

Hot dang, I really am gonna be a nonsmoker.

AND, nothing is handled. Not One Puff Ever.
