Before that I was smoke free since August 2006. I know I can do it - I think my mind just isn't right. Picking one back up just feels so normal. But, I actually hate the way it makes me feel. I snuck outside this morning to take a quick smoke and my 3 year old came searching for me "almost in tears" cuz he needed to potty and couldn't find me. What guilt I feel. Okay, so no more poor me - I know I can do this. My new quit day is February 1st and I'm gonna do it this time. I hate the way it smells, I hate the way it makes my body feel, I hate the need to sneak away while neglecting my children. I HATE cigs! (but I love them too
Okay, it's the 2nd. How are you doing?
Listen, you did it before, you can do it again.
Red60 is right, you don't love the stupid cigarettes, it's the chemical that your brain wants that makes you feel that way.
I am determined to quit for good this time, after about 10 times in the last year. I found tic tacs help me right now. I also have the Commit lozenges, those help when it's really really bad. I've only had 2 today.
Good luck to you!!
