Thanks for a great thread Bob. When I first quit, I didn't even want to think about relapse or read anything about it. I quess fearing it may in some way cause me to relapse. But at this stage in my quit I could read this post. A great enforcer to Never Take Another Puff. I don't come to Freedom as often as I used to and have been having several triggers lately. This was a great thread for me to read.
Again Thanks,
No nicotine for: 2M 3W 8h 48m. NOT smoked 3294 cigs, $494.20 not given to cigarette companies. 1W 4D 10h 30m added to my life.

I fear complacency. I fear getting too comfortable in my quit. I keep this thread close by just in case.....

...thanks Bob for a wonderful my first post here at Freedom I had to admit that I threw away an 11 month quit by taking a puff off a friend's cigarette "just to see what would happen" Well, if I'd been an educated quitter and a member here at that time, I sure would have known exactly what would happen...and that there is no such thing as just one! I like to remind myself that if I ever let myself be tempted by that one puff, I then picture myself going right out and buying CARTONS , and that really brings me around with a jolt of reality! I feel GREAT today!~~~Marie 1 month 4 weeksImage

This is a valuable threat, oops!, thread, O'Bob (the subject is a threat to us all). Thank you. I, too, will bookmark it for future reinforcement. Thanks again.
