Thank you.  Hoping to get on the treadmill this weekend, it will at least be a distraction!

Thank you.  I really hope this one sticks.  I started off this year with the attitude that I would not smoke all year, this was going to be my year and yet, here I am quitting again.  

I know doing the 1 or 2 a day is torture, it is the I get mad or restless over stuff at my house and go smoke 1, then I wake up in the morning determined to quit again.  I am going to get this right sooner or later.

On to another day.

Day 8 now. YES, 1 week completed. It's way easier now, but the cravings are unexpected. I feel nothing most of the time and then it hits me, like trying what could work :) Anyway, it's the longest I've been without cigs this year, won't stop heresparkles 

Happy for you keeping your quit too, congrats!

Hi everyone. I had quit smoking for 2 years 4 mos and 19 day ( but who's counting right) and last Friday I smoked and also smoked on Weds, Thursday, and 2 this morning. I can see myself becoming addicted again and want to stop right now, I don't want this in my life was way to good without it. I hope you all don't mind me joining you in the March quitters thread, need the support and will give it back too. Wishing all of you success on your journey at whatever stage your at.

Hi Mercy. Don't know if you remember me we were quitters together in another monthly group a couple years ago. I recently had a relapse, after over 2 years smoke free, and am coming back here before it gets too out of control. Anyway great to see a familiar face, wish you luck and success with your journey.

Don't blame yourself for not doing it right before. Keep quitting until you quit. This happened to me too, but as I can see here it happens to many of us (and there is one main reason/chemical behind it). You can make it stick this time! Educate yourself, use this forum and do whatever it takes to get through those first days. Time will make it easier, I hope ( I am early in the quit so I don't know for sure grinning)

Blue!!

How could I not remember you. You were one person I was really hoping to see. I am glad you found me. I haven't been able to post to much because I have covid. Thankfully,  it isn't deadly but it is pretty bad.

How are you? How long have you quit for now? How is life? 

Let's get caught up.

Hi Mercy!!! Sorry to hear you have covid that's awful. Been fortunate, as far as I know haven't gotten it, thought I had it last year but tested negative. Sister in law and my husbands co worker actually passed away from it and a friend of ours is in the hospital with it right now. Not something to mess with, if you feel you need to go to the hospital don't hesitate.  I had been quit well over 2 years then last Friday smoked and smoked the last 3 days, not like a whole pack but I don't want to be smoking any. Came here in hopes to get my quit back on track, needed some support. How are you doing with your quit?

That's rough. Did you have some stressors in your life at the time? For me I started thinking about it about 2 weeks before I actually smoked. Didn't help we were watching the series Breaking Bad and many of the characters smoked on the show.
