Sorry you took a puff. Don't feel terrible, just get right back on track. Waiting too long only makes it harder.
Maybe I'm supposed to but I can't go back to Day 1, Yes I had a puff but I
don't think it should set me back to starting OVER, with all respect

That's your decision alone. I'll certainly respect whatever you decide.
Just like taking a puff the choice to reset your clock is and will always be yours. Here are a few blogs for your enlightenment on the subject. Use what will help you and not focus on what will not.
