Re: OMG I caved need support

Two is not bad! When I caved in previous attempts I chain smoked for an hour. What made you cave? Stress? Hanging out with smoking friends? It was really hard for me in the first few weeks and has gotten easier as time goes on.

I had one when I was on a business trip a few weeks ago because I was at a bar and some of the people I was working with were smoking. I didn't like it much since I'm on the Chantix too. I wasn't really craving one but I'd read that you don't enjoy them much on the drug so I wanted to see and it turned out to be true for me.

Don't give up completely!

Re: OMG I caved need support

Don't beat yourself up too much. What did you learn from this? If you were like me, you've realized that those 2 smokes you had didn't taste like they used to. And the next time that you want to cave, you might remember that you didn't get anything out of them so what's the point in cheating again. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

ps: don't cheat again

Re: OMG I caved need support

hotdam..you can see from my previous posts that i have caved in also (more than once after 3wks quit). i just quit all over again each time. this time i am on day 9. hubby also bought cigs again and smoked some yesterday with his beer and our company (and they don't even smoke!) he is smoking more this morning with his coffee. we are going away today and visiting at 3 different non-smoking places, also staying overnite in a non-smoking hotel. i'm inerested in seeing if he buys any more today. it does make it alot harder for me if he is smoking.
you will be fine, just brush it off and get back on the ban wagon...good luck, know you can do it! please let us know how you are doing.

Re: OMG I caved need support

Thanks guys I needed this, we had a barbque yesterday for my daughter as she is leaving for the Army next week and of course most of my friends smoke. So that didnt help, I hung in there for a long time before I picked one up. It is so hard to sit around people who are smoking but I have to recondition my brain to think as a non smoker, I can do it, baby steps.

Re: OMG I caved need support

Hi hot dam..wow surprising to see that this post was from you but glad to see you are normal..j/k...but if it was 2 cigs and in short time, I wouldn't even count it and move on. If I slipped and got right back on track I wouldn't count it. I just know that if I slip, there will be no back on track for a long time..I quit taking the chantix 2 days ago and hope I don't have to go back on it. My skin literally began to hurt when I was touched.WELL... Like the song goes, just dust yourself off and try again, try again..no big deal..question though..do you find cravings r bad again after having 2 cigS? iS IT LIKE STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN WITH THE CRAVINGS?

Re: OMG I caved need support

Hi, I caved, too. After a week smoke free. But I ended up buying a pack, so now it'll be another week before I can consider myself quit again.
I'd say, like the others, you only had 2. That's nothing. Write it off as "it was just a moment", and continue on as a non-smoker. Good luck!

Re: OMG I caved need support

I am on Chantix. The bad thing is, I wasn't even craving. First, it was just going to be one day, because I was around smokers, but the next day, I had a disappointment in my life, and decided a smoke would make me feel better (which sadly, it did), but now that I am feeling better, I am left with the pack I bought.
I think the Chantix is incredible as far as not craving. None of my cave-ins have been do to a craving. It's all the mental aspect I can't break.
Are you still on the Chantix?

Re: OMG I caved need support

Hotdam,

You hang tough,you tell your daughter that I am very proud of her decision with the military.

My daughter is in the Navy,I'll get to see her on Friday at boot camp graduation.Its been 8 long weeks.

You think not smoking now is tough,it was really hard when my daughter left.

We done a family cook out when my daughter left also.

I quit smoking right after she left.

You just had a minor relapse.

Re: OMG I caved need support

I am trying to do it on my own without the chantix, but if I feel like if I need a cig I will take the chantix it does help. I suppose it is mostly the psycological aspect and not so much the craving. We can do it.

Re: OMG I caved need support

Hotdam everyone trips and falls as long as you pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start again. What a hard thing to have to go through with with your daughter I can't even begin to imagine the stress of it all. I wasn't able to be around friends and drink a beer w/out wanting one that I'd kill some one for until I was about 3 months into it and even then it was REALLY HARD but I just looked at my friend and wished she could quit also no such luck. I just remind myself of the terrible withdrawals and that keeps me straight.

Good luck just a minor blip on the radar of quitville
