Struggle Hard - Yes!! keep going!  Please.  You can do it.  I started quitting  November 14 2017 on this site! That was 3 years ago.  It would be nice if those were 3 smoke free years.  The upside is that I needed alot of practice quitting and the days I didn't smoke my lungs were saved.  This time I am serious.  I have been training for this moment.  I am not  turning another Year 0 birthday as a smoker!  Stick around we got your back!

Good luck to you Deanne!  They say it takes multiple attempts and it sounds like you went down to an intermittent smoker.  You can do it!

I'm still having a really, really tough time with this, if I'm being honest, which I realize is not very encouraging to those starting their journeys.  I don't want to be a debby downer.

On the upside, if I can be this horribly uncomfortable in my own skin everyday and still not smoke, then yeah, others can too!!  Because there's no way I have more resolve and willpower than anyone else!

Good luck!

StruggleHard, Keep it easy. 

Thank you for your note.  I appreciate it. It is really hard. I really want to smoke especially during this election.  My roomate has manic issues and can be abusive. My junkie thinking tells me  I have so many reasons to smoke. 

However, I remind myself that smoking is not going to change my circumstances.  The thing I like most about not smoking is that my clothes don't smell like cigarette smoke. 

How about you? What do you like most about being smoke free.

Have a happy healthy day-Deanne

Thank you, Strong! I am working on Day 42 today. It is definitely better than it was a few weeks ago. It is also still not easy at all, but somehow I plug along.

Thanks, JoelJose. How are you hanging in there? Do you still have the desire to smoke?

Not much StruggleHard and if the desire comes, they are not much powerful. What about you?

It's definitely better than it was a few weeks ago. I still want to smoke far too often, though. I'm struggling with feeling like I gave up something I really enjoyed.. Even though that's the wrong mindset and there's nothing good about smoking. 

Really weird thing is that sweet stuff does not taste sweet like it should.
