I am not sure if this group's blod shows up under the daily blog posts, but I had to chance this and write it. I, by choice, blew my quit a few days back. I've done everything since then to see what happened and where I went wrong. A couple weeks before it happened, I wrote a blog saying that I was basically in bad straits. Half of the responses were inspirational while the other half were that of 'yelling and screaming' at me. I wrote to someone that I believed I could trust and that went extremely well. I've decided not to put "all of my apples" into this website.
At any rate, the makers of this site suggest a two-week wait before coming back from a 'slip'. Well, I do not agree with that. I never did agree even for someone new. I feel strongly that that is way too long, and typically you only need a few days to collect your everything in order to quit. I came back right away because my life depended on it. Through intent reading, I discovered that I was looking at my quit all wrong. I had given the endless craves too much power. Instead, I only needed to let them be and accept them for the type of 'energy' that they were rather than fight to the death with them. Well, I lost the fight. Now, I've jumped out of the ring and am practicing acceptance until it sticks!!! Only then can I win this battle and can win the war against smoking!!! Deb.
