Back again

Posted in Getting started 18 Sep 2021

Well, I'm back. My last quit lasted 6 months, and then I allowed myself to fail. So here I am again, 35 days into my final quit. I'm using the patch and am about to step down to the 7 mg. I feel pretty good. Still miss them sometimes, but not much. I remind myself that I'm 35 days into my smobriety. (get it?) Prayer is my go to. Glad to be back.

    Hi suzq,.. yes I get it,.. smobriety! Very clever! Congratulations on 35 days of "smobriety"! Glad to hear it is your FINAL QUIT. It can be if you truly believe and stay positive as you are. Prayer helps me as well. Just know that you are not alone and also know that sooo many people have done this and we can too! Your QuitFam is behind you all the way. We all have the same goal. You can do this, you have done this before but that was just a practice run, now you are doing it for real. Your FINAL QUIT!!! Yeah!!!

    Hi Suzq,
    Congrats on 35 days, you have done the hardest yards already.
    Don’t think “I let myself fail” you didn’t! You let your guard down (it happens to all of us) and you are back here so you are an absolute legend.
    What happened, happened, leave it in the past and move on it doesn’t define you.
    Proud of you for getting back up and moving forward.
    Keep going and keep praying 😊
