I'm so thankful to have the knowledge and experience to remember that I needed to come here before I did anything stupid. My quit had been super strong for 5 months. I didn't think I needed help anymore (naive). I stopped coming here. I was always appreciative of the comments and support that I received from complete strangers (thank you!!). I even told people who were wanting to quit how awesome this place was!!
Then I got into a whirlwind of a relationship.. It came fast and left even faster. I felt strong enough in my quit journey that I could have an occasional death stick.. Famous last words! I know. It was dumb, but I didn't care, I was in love... Ugh. Now my heart is broken after he broke up with me and I'm 20 days fresh into my (for real) last quit... Smoking is not an option. It is not a reward. It won't make my relationship work. I'm really hurting right now but I'm so thankful for this site.
Hope everyone is having a really great day! It's beautiful here in Minnesota!!
Peace and love
