    Hey Leeann, today is a new day girl....this is a slip up....not a reason to give up on your goals. Keep going and remember the lesson that this has taught you, never let your guard down and NOPE..no one puff ever. Come on you can do this...no one ever died of feeling stupid....but now you know how easy it is to fall. Go back to basics again and the right mindset....when you really really hate the smokes....you will never put another one in your mouth. You can do this...you know you can.

    Thank you Robn I am crying atm as I let myself down. I feel ashamed for being so silly. Okay you are right I cant throw the towel in, new day starting over. Day 1 today and you have made me feel a bit better with your comment that nobody ever died from feeling stupid. I saved $194 for not smoking for 19 days. The stupidest part is the smoking gave me nothing for my stress and has left me feeling stupid, upset and like a fool. Squaring up my shoulders now and shaking off the shame, new day new beginnings I cant let the slip up ruin me into failure

    Go girl...that is the spirit. Big difference between a slip up and throwing the towel in completely. Throwing the towel in completely would make you a coward.....but you have 19 days behind you that says you are not..keep going and don’t go back to day one....day 20 today and keep moving forward. You can do this...you know it! Just learn the lesson well so that it does not get you again.

    So, you slipped up.. S**t (stuff) happens :) Just pick yourself up and move on to day 20.. Think about why. Apparently you are still thinking like a smoker. You can drink, without the smoke. I was surprised, just how good my bourbon was :) I had, virtually, never had a drink, without a smoke, but it only felt strange the first few times. Sure, this may wake up some nicotine craving, but you can deal with it and move on. I was at 8 weeks, when I tested an E-cig, with nicotine, I planned to recommend to a friend. I did feel the nicodemon for a few days.. BTW, she was smoke, and E-cig, free in a month, with very little stress :) Don't give up,, You got this :)

    Thank you so much Robn, Reesie & Red. Your support is giving me the strength to go on & not throw in the towel. Ahh Red a fellow bourbon drinker! I think I need to refrain from drinking until I become stronger as it seems to bring me unstuck. I keep reminding myself of all the reasons why I want to quit and cant think of one reason to smoke. Thanks guys i enjoy this web site a lot and i do draw strength from the great support and understanding as we can relate & i love reading all the stories. Let's me know I'm not alone
