    Hi Leeann...
    1stly Happy Mums Day.....
    Just shows us all how easily it is to slip into the realm of the habit easily...
    But it also does show we are all human and subject to err.
    I and i am sure many others can feel your anguish of what you are going through so major hugs to you
    I dont know how long you have quit for but now you must decide which path you
    are to take, but by you commenting here i take it you are going to give it your best shot at quitting again.
    You are not alone on your quest..
    You have done the hard yards before and you certainly can do them again to achieve your goal.
    You can do it...

    Thank you Jenno for your kind words, I've stuffed up royally, I am 10 and a half months quit and feeling really low right now. I'm so sorry to have let myself down and Robn down who has helped me so much in my quit. I feel horrible right now......😥

    I have had major stress with work and home and not coping that great right now, poor excuse I know to crumble to turn on my own good as I know smoking brings nothing positive. Please forgive me for my bad choices as I'm struggling to pick myself up. Tomorrow is a new day......

    Your not the first nor last to have a slip up Leanne. Don't add to your stress and beat yourself up over it. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and resume on your journey. You intend to do that and you will. Knowledge is power and you are too smart to regress at this point. Soon you will one whole year! Keep focused.

    Been there, done that too. Try to pick yourself up and move on. Good luck.

    Thank you Happiness and Safe2017, back to basics for me one day at a time. I am continuing my journey today and refuse to let my slip drag me back to the slavery. Dusting myself off today and one step in front of the other I'm NOT throwing in the towel!!

    1 smoke in 10 1/2 months???
    Girl -- that's not even a pebble in the pond.
    Certainly not worth fretting over.
    I won't tell, if you won't! :-)

    Haha thank you Maestro40 for putting it into perspective for me. I'm back on track now and determined not to let it interfere with my life goals and being a smoker is not in the budget or plans👍😊

    Hey Leeann, I am back in business, they have fixed the problem. I am still supporting you every way I can.
    When you hit the one year mark next month....I am going to be soooo happy for you. I have no doubt you will make it, you have the determination and the desire...go girl xx

    Hey Robn, great news to hear they fixed the problem and that you are not leaving us🙏😊

    Don't fret about a little slip. You are still on track, and that is what matters.
    But, think about the why. Apparently, even now, you are thinking like a smoker.
    Had you let that go, after this long, there should not even be the thought of lighting one up. Make the choice, to become a non smoker, then you don't have to STAY quit, you just never want another one..
