Day 33 with no cigarettes or vaping. Well two days ago I slipped and weakened again today.
I’m trying not to look at it as a failure.

Ever wondered why some people have a difficult time and some people have an easy time in Quitting and most of us fit somewhere and anywhere within the scale of difficulty to easy?
