    Hi Homebody,

    Please don't beat yourself up, you learnt from your slip up and can now put that behind you and continue on your journey.

    Hi Homebody,
    I am feeling better thanks. I'll post an
    update under the post I started. Yes, stress can be a trigger for us all. Good luck with your surgery and please do let us know how you go.

    I came so so close over the weekend from slipping, MargW kind of explained it well in her post I believe it was day 56. She had suggested to go back and look at her post, I suggest the same to you homebody. Anyhow, just get back on track and don't worry about it, you were just big time stressed over thinking about surgery. As far as I'm concerned it never happened, just don't let it happened again.
    Hope your surgery goes well.

    Hi there,
    I'm glad all went well. Sorry to hear about the cravings because they can be tough but that's not to say any of us are going to give in. Many of us smoked for years, it was part of everything we did. This is only my opinion but I think it can take time to learn how to deal with things differently. For some, triggers are stress, social settings, having a drink etc. I know for myself that it helps to read stories of long term quitters because they make me feel like okay, it's normal to feel this way but it by no way means that I'll fail in my quest. I am starting to learn that life can be enjoyable smoke free.
    Anyway, thanks for letting me know because yes, I care xx
