Hello fellow newbies!
I quit on August 1 for the billionth time. After reading Allen Carr's book, I am really determined to stay smoke free. This is the best I have felt starting any attempt, but we all know how easily we can talk ourselves into smoking again. My worst trigger is alcohol, so I need to refrain for a while and when I am ready, have just one glass of wine as a tester and maybe post on this forum while I drink it! LOL
Have a great weekend. Hope we can stay connected and on the wagon.
Hello! Not quite sure how to navigate around here, but I will certainly try. I'm quit as of today. Smoked for 26 years and I just don't want it to have any power over me anymore. I know it will be difficult but I think being a part of a group/forum will provide some accountability on my part as I begin a new journey, smoke free.
Hi Derb. It’s going to be great having you in the August quitters with me as we begin this journey.
Looking forward to navigating through this journey with you. :)
Thanks for the post, Becka! Looking forward to going through it with some friends. :)
Have you been on this forum before, Molly? You seem familiar to me.
Hi Becka I have not. My first time joining a quit smoking forum. Should have done this before though. It may have been helpful with last quit attempts. 30 years on and off. Social/closet/everyday smoker at different times over the years.
I saw you had a three week relapse. Glad you are back on it. :). How long did you quit before the relaps?
Glad you found this place. It’s so, so supportive and there’s so many good quit stories and links to helpful articles on quitting.
I quit on 2/18 and fell one week before my 5 month anniversary. A little over 3 weeks ago. It was such a stupid move. I wasn’t craving. I was feeling blah and started thinking I was funnier and had more fun and all that crap for about a week before I smoked. I knew it was coming and I just let it. Big mistake. It gave me nothing except made my nicotine receptors super happy. And made me sad and disgusted. So I’m back. It sucks to go through all the withdrawal again, but I’m going to do it. And I’m glad you’re doing it with me.
