Day 8...relapse

Blog Post created by labtech98 on Dec 7, 2018

Hello everyone, new to this site.  I made it smoke free for 8 days, then relapsed yesterday and I cried the whole time I smoked that cigarette. The first week seemed to be pretty easy, but starting on week 2 has been horrible. Needless to say, I am disgusted with myself!!


I have only smoked for a little over a year, but quitting is killing me. I work in healthcare, I have seen first hand the devastating effects of smoking and I hate it but I can't seem to stop. I read the Allen Carr book before I quit and felt really good about my quit, until now. Also, my husband still smokes, so I am around it daily. He smokes outside but seeing cigarettes laying around all day is hard! Don't get me wrong I'm not blaming him, I know it was my choice to smoke. 


I haven't tried any NRT's , thought I could do it cold turkey. My question is where do I go from here? I seem to be having more trouble with the mental aspect of it, more than the actual nicotine addiction. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
