I'm Back And I'm Here To Stay

I did sign up previously  in September  6 2015 I was doing great. Around January I started smoking can't really say when I just know that the stress got the better of me after having to remove my uncle who is like my dad off life support and having other difficulties I can't even remember when I started. I did great for 3 months but I fell off the smoke wagon. The beginning of April I sat in my car and realized I didn't want to go back to the old ways of smoking. And looking at my son's eyes and realizing that I failed and letting him think that it was okay. I went back to the doctors and I told my doctor that I was serious again and I needed to stop smoking so we could try anything she suggested. She put me on the chantex for the first one gave me a couple of refills but I'm only taking it for this month so on April 6th was my last cigarette I don't count the days I don't count the months are the hours I fight the urge one day at a time. I do remember my quit date my real quick date which was April 11th was my real absolutely no cigarette day. So far I've been doing great and I feel better. So I must say I'm back on the wagon and I have no regrets. I do have urges but I have a glass of water or a bottle of water with me at all times and it seems to work for me. It's not easy and it won't be easy and it will always be a challenge especially because my husband smokes. But that's okay because I am going to leave this bed sooner or later I'll have my husband wait until God willing
Congrats on the new quit :)
You got this jenny :)
My husband smokes, too. When I have slipped, it has been to find his cigarettes and smoke them. Luckily, after I took a smoke, I didn't take the whole pack, and got right back to not smoking. Keep drinking that water, try deep breathing to control the anxiety that comes from not smoking, and distract yourself until a craving has past. It really helps to do those things. You are doing a great job so far! Keep up the great work,
Welcome back! And congratulations on quitting again!
Its not easy, but its possible! Stay strong and welcome back you got this
