I thought it would make me feel better emotionally, but it didn't?, it's made me feel ashamed,guilty, smelly, dissapointed,depressed and more anxious.so I am quitting again tommorrow and I hope and pray that this time it's for life. I want to breathe in life and live as a nonsmoker, not suck in toxic, poisonous,destructive chemical smoke. I can do this, one day at a time.

    Ahh Miss Lizzy I understand, a similar thing happened to me last year. It's amazing isn't it that that you can never let your guard down, ever, it just sits back waiting for a weak moment. I despise it even more now but the good thing about when this happened to me was that I then knew I needed more stratergies in place. You can learn heaps from it. The last few days I have been home recouping from surgery and for the first time in weeks have had strong cravings. As soon as I'm weaker it strikes! I use the 'bring it on' attitude because it makes me angry and stronger.
    You can do this Lizzy!

    Welcome back Miss Lizzy :o) I miss the inspiration you gave me to continue this journey. I'm glad you're back and hope this time I can inspire you to stay just as you did me...

    Oh Lizzy, I hadn't read of your stumble until you replied to my post. I know what you went through to get to six months and that makes me sad for you. BUT, take heart because there is good news! . Because you quit for so long, there probably wasn't even a trace of nicotine in your body when you started again. Because of that, you probably don't have that much built up in your system now. That will help with you to get over the physical part of this addiction again.

    You now already know about the psychological part. We're never ever ever able to tell ourselves that we can just have one. One = Tens of thousands.

    Now, enough being hard on yourself. You've done well before and you're going to do well again. ;)
