Whew Joel, thank heavens you are here. I have been having an internal debate for the past 2 hours about having just one. When I got home I thought, just have one little smoke, go outside on the deck and have a drink and a smoke. I almost did and then thought, what about the 5 weeks you've put in on this quit? What about telling people that you "caved", what about starting all over again and not being able to post here? And STILL I wrestled with having just one. I don't know what it is about early evening on Sunday but boy am I vulnerable and boy am I glad I went to the library and had so much supportive material to read. The things you wrote so long ago about the one being all and thinking that it isn't just one, it's the 30 a day again, etc. etc. really hits the spot. Thanks again. I hope this nasty crave is over and I wish they'd just end but I know they won't any time soon. I do know that I can conquer the crave if I keep my mind in the library and read, read, read. Stick with it everyone and NTAP. Thanks for listening to this little rant. pj

I remember over 9 years ago when I thought I could have just one cigarette with some friends. I bought a pack on the way home, and continued to smoke until 5 weeks ago. At the time, I was one year smoke free, but got caught again, and didn't think I would ever free myself from the hold they had on me. It took 9 years, but am free again and am not going back into captivity again.

This thought went through my mind several times over these last few days. "I want one" was corrected to "I want a carton; 200 right now; and 200 next week and the next week", and on and on. I could picture where I would be immediately with "just one". What an evil addiction this is. For today, I remain free. One day at a time and NTAP!

That's exactly what keeps me free, knowing that you can't & won't have just one.

This helped me so much in the beginning of my quit. I would think about having one and remember that one always, always, always led to more. One pack and then another and another and another. When you are an addict one is too many; a hundred is not enough. Don't fool yourself. You can't have just one.

Boy, did I need to read this today! I got GREEN on 2/26, and it seems like I've been wanting ONE smoke ever since! I know that it would be "back to a pack!", so I'm focusing on my quit reasons. Some of you wrote me about a "plateau"...I guess that's where I'm at.
