Good Morning Everyone and Happy Thanksgiving ! I am new to the site (LOVE all the support I see) but not new to quitting. I quit cold turkey for 3 yrs back in '07 due to a health issue. I was NEVER going to smoke again, that was all behind me. I was finally free, after about 35 yrs. and nothing could touch me. One night I receive some devastating news, delivered to me by a family member with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. Not rocket science right? Yep, the seductive, evil temptress of "addiction doom" whispered softly in my ear, gently lured me back into her black world. Well, there I was. Again.
Bringing us up to now, these are early days for me yet. Only 8 days in, a long way to go I know. I want this so very badly and I will be here visiting often for strength and support. I don't have a lot of support around me and a smoking family member isn't going to say "I'm proud of you" on the back of a decent inhale. I'm going to dig deep. I'm determined to win. I CAN do it. Thank you all so very much for listening :):)
