You are not confused or alone on your roller coaster journey we call quitting smoking. You are addicted to a very powerful drug called nicotine. Even with terrible problems that life can throw at us we still can do what we have to do without reaching for a cigarette. Smoking doesn't help in a crisis, smoking in itself is a crisis.
As your supporters, Teko and Wayne said, go to www.whyquit.com and do some reading, do a lot of reading. Chances are if you found out today that you have a life threatening disease that had the potential to cripple or kill you - you would then immediately do all you could to read and act on your condition. Do the same with your addiction to nicotine, don't be left behind. You deserve to be free, the way you were meant to be. Don't let smoking take you out you certainly deserve much better than that.
You must treat smoking as an addiction or you will not stand a prayer in this matter. It is all or nothing - one cigarette is never enough we always take them all. Believe that with every fiber. But please be assured - quitting is doable and attainable once you understand what you are up against. I was once quit for over 6 years and went back to smoking after puffing on a trendy cigar. Nicotine is nicotine and addiction is addiction. Remember that the challenges are temporary, you can do this if you just quit ONE DAY AT A TIME...NOT ONE PUFF NO MATTER WHAT. Again, read as much as you can at whyquit.com
You can do this. Guaranteed freedom for each of us as long as we never take another puff.
