I see that I am replying to you three weeks after you posted this!  I hope that you are still trying to quit.  If not, I hope that I can write something to change your mind.  Let me answer your questions first to see if I can encourage you to keep on fighting the demon!  (the cravings that attack when you least expect them and/or incessantly.  Like you, when I started my quit, I was not able to smoke during the day due to my work constraints.  However, when I got off work, I could not think of anything else except getting home and heading to my back porch.  It did not matter the weather.  I needed time to come home and "unwind with my smokes".  I assume that when you returned to the environment where you were with people who smoked, that things became much more difficult.  There are people on this forum who have quit despite being exposed to smoke and the same routines day after day.  I hope that you are able to do this.  I unfortunately had to close myself off to any kind of socializing with smokers for quite a few months into my quit.  All of us are different.  The key for me was support from this forum.  I owe my quit to all the people on this forum that I emailed nightly (and daily on the weekends) so that I could remain smoke free.  After forty years, there was nothing easy about it HOWEVER, I persevered and found a support plan that worked for me.  Even if you are still smoking, don't ever give up.  One day, the stars will align and you will find your self being able to put the cigarettes down and take one minute, hour and or day at a time.  I will keep an eye out for you.  If you would like to read posts from my journey, check out March Warriors 2018.  

All the best,

Well done if your still smoke free , they said takes 3months for these messages in my brain to weaken or better still disappear.  Marjorie1244
