We’re happy to have you here with us. 

Have a great day.

Thank you, once again.  I didn't smoke zero but made progress and only smoked 3 today.  My biggest problem is patience, so far.  I also need to learn how to ask for help and work on a suggestion in one of my readings of posting if I want to smoke then wait for 3 responses.

Patience ,perseverance, character, hope a well known biblical phrase, I struggle with patience also kern, I have found that diverting your attention away from the main task while maintaining abstinence works for me, I exercise regularly and eat wholesome foods, fruit and nuts feature heavily in my diet, and I always have a plan for what I will do on the day, no matter how trivial. Good luck with your quit

Kind regards
