<t>Reading some stuff today and just remembering what an important, life changing decision it was to quit. It was the hardest addiction I have ever had to break, but I was not alone. I am so incredibly thankful for this site, it's members, and the people who administrate it. My thoughts about cigare...

<t>You're doing great, Jezza. Seems like you're out of the woods and having more days of ease than of struggle. Just keep at it, it gets better and better and you will notice more and more benefit of not smoking. By the time you're not having triggers anymore, you will be so incredibly grateful. <br...

<t>The answer, in short, is EXTREMELY rarely. For the most part, I want a cigarette 0 seconds a day for months and months at a time. But, I DO reflect often on how glad I am that I do not smoke anymore. I am SO grateful that I am no longer a slave to that awful habit. I feel better, look better, sme...

Smoking dream

<t>The night before last (meant to write about this yesterday but just didn't get the chance) I dreamed of cigarrettes.  I don't remember much specifically, but I had relapsed and it had led to another or maybe a couple others I was still in the stages where I was telling myself that I wasn't "reall...

I thought that my relapse was from a public ashtray, but I realized it actually happened before that, at this friend's house.  Smoking one always leads to more, no matter how slowly or quickly it progresses.  NTAP!!!
