Thanks! Me, too..
these relapses really get under skin. I can literally echo what people say, tweak it a little, and mentally consider my OWN relapse post.
its abundantly clear. We are birds of a feather. We could literally echo eachother.
Today I felt (weak, hurt, angry, stressed.....)
I couldn’t cope with the (insurance, inlaws, inbreeding,)
i thought if I could just have ONE .....
i just needed some relief for today...
its the same for all of us. Because it’s a terrible addiction that preys on people who need to (stuff emotions/cope/deal with too much)
Beloved friends, there are days when we think we have reached the tipping point. But we don’t. We gather it all up and do it again tomorrow. Because smoking will only make everything exponentially worse. We KNOW this to be true. Please, please muster up all your courage, strength and arm yourself with the truth about this addiction.
If you relapse, don’t continue it with the promise to “get back to it”. Get back to it NOW. That next cig might be the one to trigger your lung cancer. And if you “slip”? Don’t continue to slip. Own it, and get rid of the other 19 cigs in the pack. Otherwise it’s not a slip. Listen to the elders. They KNOW how to do it. And we all want what they have ;-)
This is not directed at one person. This is literally ALL of us. We are all in this together, and we are all holding eachother up.
So get back up, please. We are counting on you!!!
