    I'm embarassed to say...

    I'm smoking my last few cigarettes because today is my quit date. I quit for two weeks of this month, but I succumbed to the anger, and stress. I feel quite hopeless, like what's the use of trying to quit? I'm so desperate that I'd sell my kidney for a quick fix, but the cigarettes already have my soul. The point of the matter is, though. I have the support of everybody at the moment. My paren...

    Relapse

    So... I posted here a week ago. I was going so well quitting, but I became very angry and depressed. I'm not going to have a pity party because I don't want to be pitied. I have an amazing girlfriend who understands. So I'm not letting this relapse become the end. I am going to see the doctor, and with luck he is going to help me to get back on track. Maybe I need help with my depression an...

She took the initiative and told me that she will reward me when I reach cert...

    So... a while ago I used this website to post that I was quitting. Honestly, I was unprepared and began to smoke again. I posted my apologies, and was thoroughly disappointed in myself. In the last year, I did quit: for ten weeks! Unfortunately, on the tenth week I celebrated... with a cigarette. Such is life. But, it's another opportunity to quit today, and I'm on my second day. I know I'v...

    This is me

    This is must be one of multitudinous attempts to quit. My doctor recommended me to this site. He makes out that it will make everything better, and I'm desperate enough to want to try.

Everyday within seconds of getting out of bed I reach to roll a smoke; this is the first smoke. I smoke a...
