    Toedancer,

    You didn't fail. You slipped. That happens to all of us. That is the truth, and no just some platitude. 

    Now learn from it and figure out what you can do different to keep yourself from slipping again. 

    Determination is your best asset. Be willing to fall and keep getting right back onto the quit wagon. It took me a lot of tries until I found my strength to keep my quit.

    Hi toedancer,

    Not to worry.  We all slip.  If quitting were easy, no one would still smoke.  The important thing is to dust yourself off and try again, and again, and again until it sticks.  Try to learn from your slip.  What do you think triggered you, and what can you do differently in the future?

    I remember being afraid to try to quit, too.  But then I got excited instead, because I realized that I was about to change my life in a big way for the better.  Try to focus on the positives, and take it one step at a time.  You can do this.  Believe in yourself.

    Welcome, diane marie, and congratulations on day #1! We are happy to have you here.

    And thank you for the suggestion. Many people find meditation a helpful way to easy anxiousness and manage stress.

    All the best with you quit, and take care
