I don't even want to know about the power of "one". There is no such thing as one when you are dealing with an addictive substance. I am at 5 months and off Chantix since May 6th and had a dream about smoking the other night. That is where I will smoke, Only in my dreams! They won't kill me there. Hang in there everybody cuz you really do have the power if you dig deep enough!!
sharon, i hope you're not beating yourself up as bad as i have been doing to myself! yes, we had set backs, now we need to move forward once again, starting with day 1 today for me and hubby.
i had stress factors 3 times since my original quit in june, that sent me right back to the cancer stick! of course, doing so did not help my stress, only making me feel worse because i started smoking again.
we can do this! good luck!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,bevann
yes i felt awful because on top of the problems i felt i only addad to them by smoking again and got very depressed the cigs did not help and i am back on the patches again i still have all the family problems but i havent had a smoke today as now i know i dosent help
I smoked for 15 years, after some marital trouble. I quit last fall havent had any cigs since November 06, those things will eat your gizzard out! My Doctor said I was near a stroke if I didnt take care of myself and it woke me up. I dont want to die from smoking if I can help it and I can.
What helped me was taking my mind off the cig and thinking of something else there are a million and one other things to do, besides smoke a cig!
Quiting gets better and each new day makes you enjoy that sweet, sweet, air its the reason we are alive
I felt I had an overload of extra breath when I QUIT SMOKING like my lungs were overflowing.
cigs will be illegal someday in the future not to mention the $$$ you safe.
