I'm coming back

I have really avoided this for a long time. I'm so embarrassed and disappointed that I was smoke free for well over a year and I lost my quit. I quit in October of 2013 (?) and was a proud non-smoker until just after my 92 year old mother passed away. I don't know what happened- I guess I romanticized the almighty cigarette and felt sorry for myself. I have been smoking ever since. I've tried so many times again to quit, without coming here to admit my failing... it hasn't worked, obviously. I miss and need the support.

Thank you for being here, and I have re-set my quit date to May 1st. I want to quit tomorrow, but it is not recommended, so I will heed the advice, and get my head in the right place first.

If you have any suggestions, I am open to them. I have read Allen Carr's wise words many times, and will refresh myself in these next two weeks.

My triggers are coffee and wine... lol. I guess that's universal.

I used to run 4 miles a day. Then I walked, then I biked... I did yoga and lifted weights!  Now, all of that cuts into my "smoking" time. How SICK is that???
