Angry Setback!!! Feeling guilty

Hi All

I had given up smoking for approx 3 months, I had my ups and downs like everyone does :-(.....But last Tuesday my brother-in-law had a major motorbike accident and it looks like he is going to be spending a considerable amount of time in hospital.

It felt like when I heard the news all these urges came at once and I gave in. 1 week later, I am determined to kick this filthy habit into touch. I have my 10mg patch yet again and will be trying again tomorrow.

Please wish me luck because I am dreading all the withdrawals again.

Re: Setback!!! Feeling guilty

You can do it! You have 3 months under your belt, 1 week will not de-rail your quit! Think positive and don't beat yourself up for what happened. Use this experience to come up with other stress relievers you can employ when you have another major incident in your life.

This is me cheering you on.

I pray your B-I-L will recover quickly and completely.

Re: Setback!!! Feeling guilty

Don't beat yourself up,its just a little set back.

This accident just triggered a normal response or what your body thought was a normal response in dealing with stress.

You already have a good jump on quiting.

My prayers are with you and your B-I-L.This is all tramatic.

My Son -in-law all most lost his life in a roll over accident in april ,he is still recovering,but at least he's home now.The kid is only 20.Modern medicine is awesome now.
