Today is the first day

Posted in Quit experiences 01 Dec 2016

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, as a non smoker. I have gone back on the patches and I know I can do this! Cigarettes do not make me or my life better in any way, what they do is destroy my body, my health and my mind and they chain me to a toxic, all consuming addiction. I want to be free of this addiction, I want to breathe in life and I want to live. So one day at time I can do this and as I have just learnt , no matter what I do not pick up a cigarette. Cigarettes have no value to my life or anyone's.

    Miss Lizzy...i know exactly how bad you feel blowing that good quit as I've done it myself. It's great you're back on track again. The best thing is to draw strength from the stumble and feed it into this new and possibly final quit. It takes several goes for some of us. Keep posting and good luck 😊

    Hi Miss Lizzy, look do not be hard on yourself for the relapse cause that is what your brain wants you to do. You done well prior and not much damage would have occured. Just kick off again and this time you know when you must not regress.Roosevelt once said "it is hard to fail BUT it is worse never to have tried to succeed".Cheers.

    Hi Miss Lizzy.
    Just wind your start date forward to cover the days lost. Forget the weakening... Reclaim your quit path. We want you here for the long ride and not a short one...
