Welcome bck lady,  I recently returned.. I now have 49 days ... one day at a time.
 
 I had to turn my mind around.  I also understand that the craves are the way out of this ... Every time we beat one down, we are taking back Control of our own life, health, time and Money.  I am free and I am in control of my life. one day at a time.
 
 Understanding what it is to alctually relax.. and have my "own" time.. for the First time in 40 + years.   The other quits werw for practice.. I had to change how I think about smoking.  I used visual techniques.. i pictured myself in sitations.. with out smokes.  I no longer smoke. I took smoking as an option off the table.  so when a crave hits.. I say No.. I don't smoke anymore, that is no longer an option...
 
   Remember the First Day .. it is the MOST important day.   Without it .. You would not have a Quit.
 
  I know you can do this.. Don't look far ahead.. just little steps at a time.. and they will all add up
 
 Bonnie

Welcome back!  I quit many times before this time and I thought about that everyday during the first few weeks.  I was overwhelmed with feelings of discouragement and failure because I couldn't make it so many times before.  If I can offer any advice it would be to let go of any quits that did not work for you and view it only as a learning experience.  Try to remember all the things that worked for you when you quit before and do those as often as possible and stay away from things that didn't.  Every time I have quit I have also realized that this is a learning process about myself and my own self discovery. Keep going and look forward to everyday you will find something new about who you are as well as the new things you can do, smell and taste.

Hey Lady D!!!
 
       Welcome back, buddy!!!  You already know ALL that it takes is committing to NOPE and having a greater desire to quit that your desire to continue to smoke!  So, stick close and keep telling yourself that you can do this!
 
        We'll be here for advice and support, but in the end, it will be your war to win, one battle at a time!  Here's the secret...  DO  NOT  let the demon win one battle!     Let's get 'er done this time!!
