Posted in Staying quit 30 May 2017

Hi every body...

firstly I would like to thank Kim and Johnnie for their comments on my earlier post and would like to send a message to anyone trying to quit but may have slipped up now and again.

Please do not call this a failure,just get right back up there and start again as each time will get easier.Reading icanquit community posts every day will help you understand what other people are going thru which in turn will help in your decision to stick to your commitment to quit.

Make a commitment to quit while it's your decision,don't wait for your body to make it for you.

All the best and don't give up giving up

    Totally agree.........It's not failing, it's learning how to quit. We all make mistakes and we must learn from them. I like your quote, "don't give up giving up". Take care.

    Heya Des,

    You're very welcome. I also agree, those who have a slip up are not failures at all. It can take some people a few attempts but the most important thing is to learn from the slip and keep going.

    Hope you're starting to feel a bit of relief.

    My mom has always told me, just never quit quitting smoking :)
