    Hi Poco. It is good to hear you are nearing the six months even with a couple of set backs, but don't think of it as "holding out". That makes it sounds like you are just abstaining for a duration, not a full quit. Embrace the quit and feel good that you are accomplishing what you set out to do. Make it permanent and be grateful and happy every day.l

    Congratulations on day 159. as Happiness has stated 'Embrace the quit' to help you make it a permanent quit please consider a Mantra that fits you, and repeat this every day, no matter what life throws at you. You will be Oh so proud of yourself. Mine was and still is NOPE (not one puff ever) said or thought or written down every day, not just when you feel challenged, this is an every day approach and works.

    BY the way smoking is not good for your sinus problems, I have lost my sense of smell from smoking. Congratulations on 6 months. Come back anytime and reply to others anytime, this helps you stay motivated too.
