Just kinda wanted to share a tiny update. I switched to the 7 mg patch on Sunday. So far, the decrease in nicotine hasnt bothered me at all. I am able to take the patch off at 5:00 P.M. and I don't put another one on until 6:30 A.M. Miss it less and less. Doing well. Thanking God daily.

However you get there, however anyone gets there, we will be there together in the end. Doing the same thing... and that is.... remaining a non-smoker. Keep up the good work.

    You had abstained from smoking for 6 months before and allowed yourself to pick it up again. This time will be different because you really do realize that smoking was doing nothing for you. Life goes on without smoking and we do adjust to our new lifestyle. I don't think that you actually chose to pick up smoking again, did you? I imagine you felt that just one with a friend couldn't hurt.
    Never underestimate the power of nicotine. It is an addictive drug just as alcohol is to an alcoholic. Forever and Always. As strong as my mindset is, even I would not want to put it to the test. I love my new life and would not want to jeopardize it or have to quit smoking over again. (Even if my experience in quitting smoking was an easy one this time) I really don't miss something that I now understand never really did anything good. I will never think of smoking like I once did. I will never make the mistake of lighting up again.
    Along with my intention of helping others in the quitting process, I do believe the members should always check in periodically as a reminder of lessons and experiences. Always be thankful and grateful for the success in finding freedom!
