    I haven't been on here for a few days because I lost my Quit on Monday. There's no excuse for it! I just didn't keep my mind in the reality of my situation. The Junkie thinking got me. 20 days quit gone! I just wanted to let you know why I haven't been here, and Thank you and everyone here for the support you gave me.

   I'll be back!

Well, are you back in the saddle Jeff?? 
Dust off and get back in the ring buddy. You can do this. Mind over matter. We’ve all been there so no shame in it. 
I really hope you’re still in the running! Let us know.

We are all here for you and we are stronger together.

Hello friends. I am one week smoke-free relaxed

I must confess that was a brute period of my life as I lost some interviews for a new job, I had some problems with a neighbor, I cried a lot and I was very angry but I did not smoke.

I even found a cigarette. It somehow shocked me, I was a very heavy smoker but I did not touch it. The mindset is changed, it helps me a lot listening all night autohypnosis. I have an entire playlist. Somewhere on this forum, I read ones that a lady used autohypnosis  3 months every night when she went to sleep.

It helps me when I eat eucalyptus and mint candies, drink water, sleep when I need to.

I bought my self a little treat, a face cream with high sun protection for the moments I will stay with the face at the sun, a happy and a proud smoke-free woman.

Kind regards and stay healthy.

Hi there Jeff,

Sorry to hear that.  I hope you will jump back into your quit soon.  Don't let the relapse keep you from getting back up and fighting again.   You are stronger than you think.   Don't get mad at yourself, get mad at the cigarette.

How Do I Recover From A Smoking Relapse?

When someone relapses, sometimes they feel like everything is lost and ‘what’s the use' in trying any longer. They also tend to feel guilty and depressed and keep beating themselves up about failing.

Hey, you did so well Michaela. Sounds like a horrible period that you got through without smoking. If you can do that, you can do anything.

I must confess, I'd have crumbled when you found the cigarette, if not before. Well done you


From: DebraAnne60


Well done!  Cheers to you!! Give yourself a pat on the back (as we would if we were there with you) and be proud of yourself.  You have begun the build of your foundation.  

I am not sure if I sent this to you already but in the event that I have not, here is a link to Allan Carr's Easy Way to Quit Smoking


If you have not yet read it, it comes highly recommended.  

We are here for you so keep in touch.

Thanks. I must say I hated that cigarette when I saw it. Brought me so many problems in the past, nothing good.


From: MichaelaOana


Debra, Thanks. I did read the book ten times allready.


From: DebraAnne60


Your welcome.  Ten times and already?  What did you think of it?

Hi there,

I am in the practice of linking images to my goals/reasons for quitting smoking.

My reason this morning is to be more active and the linked image is:-

Kind regards
