Resetting My Quit Date

Blog Post created by cgov2626 on Apr 11, 2020

Thank you for sharing about your journey. I am doing the same (resetting my quit date to tomorrow.  It was yesterday).  I can't seem to just put the patch on and not smoke a few cigarettesCigarettes are my security blanket .  This way it is just mental torture about when I think I can have one then put the patch on.  Or I can take the patch off and have one.  There is no middle ground.  Not to mention how this wreaks havoc on my self esteem since I feel like a failure over and over. I need to make the decision to not smoke another cigarette and stick to it.  Mark Ironically, I quit once before for 10 years. Only I cut down over time with no aids, switched brands, and stopped buying them and bummed them for the sheer humiliation so that I would stop.  It took about 3 months and I drank alot of water to get rid of the cravings.  I smoked for 10 years and quit for 12.  I am not sure why I started again.  I didn't realize 1 is too many and 1000 is never enough.  Now it has been 20 years!  I'll gladly accept advice.
