after being quit for one wk., i relapsed yesterday, and smoked a pk of cigs.
my girlfriends husband died suddenly, so of course i had to smoke for a day(only kidding). instead of beating myself up about it, i am just not smoking today, one day at a time i guess. so, i guess today is my new quit day.
sharon....how are you doing?
i hope everyone is stronger than i am.......bevann
Don't think of it as a weakness. I had the same thing happen. I was quit for 21 days then went and bought a pack of cigarettes. I smoked one a day for about a week them threw them away because I really wanted to stay quit. So I re-quit. No problem. It really is just one day at a time. If you 'accidentally' smoke one day, you quit again.
makes sense its just that i feel i failed because i have tried about 10 times now i have this realy chesty cough from smoking all day yesterday sometimes i just feel like giving up on it as i have the dreaded smokers cough anyway
sharon...i am still using commit lozenges, but i have a weird not smoking plan since my quit date of 2/18. i went 3 days w/out a smoke...some days i smoke between 1-3 of hubby's cig...yet some days i have none. i can't say i had a bad crave for one, and don't even enjoy it. then why am i doing it i wonder?
i do hop on the lung cancer site sometimes and just read about the poor people with this disease. also a friend of mine that was about a 50 yr. smoker just got on oxygen. he still smokes, so goes off his oxygen to have that smoke! i know i could not handle carrying oxygen everywhere with me, nor could i handle cancer.
i had a chest xray that was fine, oxygen level is 95, and doc said my lungs sounded clear. that was all good news, and i don't want to push it! this was all this wk. i also am physically disabled, and don't need anymore lung problems, already have copd for about 13 yrs now.
i am doing this for my health, if they said cigs were good for me, that would be great news! i want to live as healthy as i can for me, and my family.
i have tried about 10 times also, so if we can keep trying, we will make it!
best of luck to everyone......bevann
thankyou for everything you said ray. i hope you are doing well in your quit..i now have my new quit going on..i've not had even a drag since 3/9 (hard to do with hubby smoking) at 10am.
i have a different mindset this time when thinking i need one of hubby's. i have even not smoked thru stress again like i was doing.
soooo, at this point i'm feeling pretty good...hope you can get your mindset about them also...i do believe we just need to romance a butt, not marry it!!!!
