Hi Sharon, Atlanta, and all! PLEASE don't beat yourselves up over relapsing!!! I do it all the time and eventually we all with the help of God dust ourselves off and start again. I wanted to get a pack of smokes so badly last night I could literally taste it. My son has been having problems with his OCD and the stress does me in everytime along with the worry and depression and anxiety. It's been 17 days now without a slip and all I do now is when the urge strikes or anything stressful for that matter, I go in to lay down for a bit and rest. I just drop everything and get away from it for a bit. It has been helping me immensely--that and speaking to a higher power(mine is God). We're trying to beat the toughest thing in the world and practicing will help us succeed. We've got a great support system on this board and we can't do anything but succeed! God bless and take care--Hopeto--
hi mmee i am still smoking i went for my diabtic blood test and they found something wrong with my thyroid i have to see the doc on friday but i have been so stressed out however i have read a lot of posts saying they got thyroid problems after stopping also the weight i have put on one and a half stone i hope everyone else is doing well i am going to try again after i see the doc because my bp is also up i seem to have fell to bits when i stopped but i realy do wish i had not started again
You have alot going on right now, and I would not blame myself for starting again. Relapses do happen and you can always quit again when the stress level goes down for you.
I hope that everything works out for you and that your thyroid is okay too.
