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.

So...I had insomnia the other night...stayed up reading your journal here. Thoroughly enjoyed it! You had me cracking up and commiserating the whole way, so, thank you!

Hope you’re well and still free!!
