<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!!!
