Stephanie's Re-do

Blog Post created by stephmart on Sep 18, 2017

Hi Everyone

My name is Stephanie and today is my first smoke free day (again).  I had quit about 5 years ago and was doing fine until I started go out with friends again to bars.  The first time I had a smoke at the bar didn't bother me at all.  Next day I felt no cravings at all.  Then I was with a friend who smokes the same kind that I did and I thought it would be ok to have one (two) since it didn't bother me the first time.  WRONG!!!!  It was all I could think about after that.  So I went and bought a pack and then another...  I had been smoking again for about 5 months until today.  I don't even know why I kept doing it.  I felt/feel like crap everyday.  My allergies are way worse than when I wasn't smoking.  I can't do cardio because I can barely breath.  So, today I put my patch on and am beginning again.  Today, I am again, a non-smoker.  One day at a time until it doesn't bother me anymore.
