Hi I’ve tried desperately hard to quit entirely. I have been failing lately and giving in to smoking occasionally. It seems that the urge becomes too strong for me and I reason that one or two won’t hurt. I know that this is untrue as it’s just keeping it alive in my mind. I need some advice as I’m in danger of going back. I don’t want this to happen ie be a regular smoker again or even this occa...
I am just over 6 and a half years quit and mostly thanks the this forum. I pop in from time to time to express gratitude to all the friends here who helped me quit.
Having smoked for 53 years it seemed an impossible task to stop. But by then I had become really disgusted with myself having reached the age of 67 and desperately trying to kill myself with the strongest cigarettes and 20 a day. ...
