    Happy Friday everyone,

    Still smoke free 9 days in...yesterday was kinda hard - home alone, i thought I could get away and sneak JUST 1 and no one would know. Made me kind of giggle at thinking like a teenager thinking they can fool parents. Good thing the adult in me knows its not just 1 and I will want to quit all over again - and have to go through that hardship again...no thank you. 
    I've done many other hard things in life, and I've learned lots the hard way as well..this is my umpteenth time quitting, and this will be my last quit! I don't like the thought of 'keep quitting' for myself. An addictive personality as is - 1 is too many and 25 is not enough - I will keep the quit as treepo frequently says.

    Hi nerak47,

    Congrats for reaching Day 9th! Your determination, hard work and persistence is something to be really proud of – way to go! Sorry to hear that you had a hard time yesterday and I hope that today will be a better day for you. The process of quitting can be challenging sometimes. But, the fact that you remained smoke-free during the tough time is so great. You didn’t give in to your thoughts of having “JUST 1” , what great self-control and determination! Keep up with the positive thinking and keep going strong.

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Linda
