Keep it up. I also relapsed like week or 2 back but I am fighting it again. I learned a lot of things in time when I was smoke free so its easier getting back to being non-smoker. You kind of see its not that big of a deal to stop it and its only a new better state of mind. Good luck.

Good to see you are hanging in there Lisa, way to go.  Hopefully, you are starting to feel pretty good about your quit.  I want to share with you an article that is in the forum, here is the link, which I hope will help you change your mind about how to deal with quitting.


I go with the I am so pleased I do not smoke mantra every single day.  I wake up giving myself a pat on the back for not smoking, all day long I am telling myself what a great job I am doing, not smoking and how happy I am not to be smoking, and when I go to bed, I pat myself on the back for not smoking.  I am happy happy happy - absolutely ecstatic that I am not smoking.  I think this is probably why my quit has been relatively easy.

I hope you can find this mantra too.

Hello Anne

Today is my 50th day smoke free!! Whew. but now a days i have been chewing those Extra peppermint gums in the evening. (No nicotine at all). Hopefully i want to survive this year without that stick. Then it should be a cake walk and i will be a non smoker forever. Thank you once again for all the support.

i guess i will start giving myself a pat everyday too!!
