We all leave the planet sooner or later.

There was a kind person, one of many, who guided and supported me when I quit on another site 8 years ago.

Thank you for your care and committment friend. You will be missed!

I want to smoke everyday

There isnt a day that goes by that I dont consider smoking. And if I had a lungdart here I would do it. But I dont.If I would go get cigarettes, it would be a deliberate act.
People act like a slip is just something that happens to them, sounds like something PASSIVE like it "just happened to them, they couldnt help it", and they are a victim, but actually it takes ACTIVE action. You have to make a decision, get in the car, go to the store, and all this gives a person time to change their mind. I know because I have brazenly made that decision numerous times in the 45 years I smoked and tried to quit zillions of times.
I miss smoking, I would like to smoke, but smoking is just not an option and I tell myself I am a grownup woman, not a baby, the answer is NO, you cannot smoke ever again. And every day that I do it I am stronger and my junkie is learning that no means no, and begging and pleading is not going to change things. Its like handling a child, you need to be very consistent because if you give in sometimes, you aren't believed.
