    Hi Berenice, so sorry for your loss, at terrible 5imes like this it is hard not to want to go back to old habits. But ask yourself what having a cigarette will achieve for you? It will not take the pain of your loss away and it will undo the past year of having beaten the filthy habit.....which will then make you feel worse because you have failed. Distance yourself from the smokers as much as you can and deep breathe....go for long walks and keep your mind active on other things. If you can do a year, you can get through this , believe in your strength of mind and why you do not want to be a smoker. Take care of yourself.

    My condolences Berend, Most people are back to their addiction even after one puff. I know because it happened to me in the past. If you have a smoke you will have to deal with two problems instead of one, that is dealing with your loss and a newly reacquired addiction. Chew gum, drink fluids, walk, whatever will get you over the hump. Stay strong and take care.

    Sorry for your loss. Please stay strong. You do not need a cigarette. Cigarettes need you! Say no!

    Stay strong Berend, remember why you decided to quit remember all your achievements over the last year, it’s really really hard at the moment with the loss of your Dad but having a ciggie is not going to fix anything, all it will do is make you feel disappointment in yourself..... don’t do it use what ever gave you the strength in the beginning to keep yourself on track.... good luck, keep strong and message anytime if you need to just vent or just need a understanding ear.
