    jjf, brieffree is correct. Relapses are part of every quit.  You just need to get back to your quit every time you fail, until your body and brain fully learn how to kick this habit out of your life for good. :)  Good luck! We can do this....

    Started my quit 6 years ago, now after many relapses I am finally 3 years smoke free. :)  Key is never another puff!

    Hi jjf

    You are so much worth it than a Madness of smokes!
      Be nice with yourself, regard your self for a 1 day smoke free! and so long! with something healthy.
     Remember the benefits of quit!
     More Money for you!

    Hi jjf,

    As brieffree and jeyan have already shared, relapses are often a part of quitting, but the important thing is to continue on with your goal of quitting. Slips and relapses provide an opportunity to learn about what isn't working.

    If you feel you need additional support or would like to discuss strategies that might work for you, please feel free to call a quit coach at 1-877-513-5333.

    Sincerely,
    Kate R

    I’m only six months smoke free.  I continue to struggle every day, several times a day.  I keep telling myself I’m not a smoker.  The urges pass rather quickly, I try and laugh about it.  Sometimes my body heads for the cigarette when my brain is not even thinking about it.  This is the first time in my life at 50 yrs old that I have not smoked after my quit date.  With all that said I love being a non smoker.  I can’t believe how much free time I have and more time to do stuff and mingle with people.  I learned that the nicotine was controlling me and wasn’t to keen with that.  I have smoked all my life or the most part. My husband called me a professional, right down to the quick. I never wasted one part just hauled away on it.  When under the nicotine spell, really nothing else matters.  I tell myself one hour at a time, and celebrate your achievemen.  Everyday is a huge accomplishment, every month is my new big accomplishment.  I just realized I saved almost $2000 dollars... oh yes I think a reward is indeed deserved.  I did reward myself with little things throughout my journey so far, things I would not normally waste money on but said hey it’s less than a carton of smokes!  Be real with yourself.  There is no failure is what I realized but only hurdles to being nicotine and habit free.  You can do it! Remember that and you don’t need it, it needs you!  You did it before! And remember too it’s that one puff that makes you need more.  That’s how we all became addicted in the first place. Be headstrong and stubborn. Get pissed off. Do whatever it takes and good luck!
