    Hi All! My first quit 3.5 years ago was from a health scare. I started vaping…ended up with throat problems,  started smoking 1 day (stealing cigs from spouse) which eventually turned into 10 day. 2 years ago I said enough. I went 5 months and then in a bar my spouse left a smoke in ashtray which I took a puff of. That started another round of maybe 1 cigarette but only once a week or every 2 weeks. I was also on patch the whole time, step 3 cut in half. I finally quit that 3 weeks ago. Was feeling free NO NICOTINE a in my body yay!! And then poof had a memory of smoking and it nagged me all day. So I stole another smoke, took about 5 puffs and destroyed it.
    i feel like I’m never going to win this battle. I need a total reset somehow,
