Zoloft

Hi AmJ,
 
It's encouraging to see that you are seeing success in facing your fears.
Try speaking to your doctor about the benefits and side effects of Zoloft.  Your doctor may also be able to provide you with alternate solutions if you're really against taking medication.
 
Keep us updated!

4 months and loving it

Hi Cristina,
 
Congratulations, your perseverance is admirable! 
 
Can you offer some techniques you've used to resist cravings, especially while living with a smoker?

thirty days

Deb, you are correct.  Often times relapses occur in the first 3 months due to situational triggers and are usually unexpected. These are the times when people reach for cigarettes automatically because they associate smoking with relaxing. It's hard to prepare yourself for this kind of situation until it happens, so it's important to recognize it when it does. 
 
Jeniwho, smoking is a habit that you can break!  Try to recognize what triggers your urge and maybe it will help ease the feeling.
 
Keep it up!
