Relapse

Posted in Quit experiences 14 May 2015

So... I posted here a week ago. I was going so well quitting, but I became very angry and depressed.

I'm not going to have a pity party because I don't want to be pitied. I have an amazing girlfriend who understands. So I'm not letting this relapse become the end.

I am going to see the doctor, and with luck he is going to help me to get back on track. Maybe I need help with my depression and anxiety.

I refuse to believe that I am going to smoke myself to death.

Also, I would like to thank everybody here who supported me through the first two weeks.

Never give up!

    I have just joined this forum because I am quitting tomorrow. I find it easy to quit but just as easy to relapse. Great idea to see your doctor for the anxiety and depression (I suffer this too). Good luck.

    Yep, I'm hearing you both, anxiety & depression seems to play a big part. To my surprise I have been suffering less from both whilst not smoking, was difficult to deal with the anxiety and no smokes at first but into the 3rd week now I find I am dealing with it a lot better. Jakob, I am so proud of you for sticking with it & still open to the support here and for continuing on your journey - you really owe it to yourself & your family to never give up, keep trying my friend, it can be done, I know you can do it. Your doing the right thing, believe & trust in yourself. I refuse to smoke myself to death too, especially after I just watched some stories on you tube from former smokers, what an eye opener, I'll never do that to myself. Those damn companies have a lot to answer for and they continue to make them & sell them! Unbelievable. Makes me rather sick.
