Emily,

Wow!! It's comendable you have quit again SO SOON after stumbling!! Good Job!! In the past it has taken me months to even 'start' thinking about quitting again, so I admire you for that :-)

You may want to stay away from the things that tempt you for awhile til you get the hang of not smoking...i.e., parties, bar, hanging out with other smokers. I always in the past told myself "I was strong enough to go and not smoke" or that I could "be around so-and-so" without smoking. Well truth be known, I couldn't. I continued to start up again for one reason or another because of what ever situation I was in and I rationalized it to the benefit of smoking again.

Moral of the message: If you don't put yourself in tempting situations, you'll be able to quit much easier. But this is NOT to take away from the fact that you already quit again. I AM impressed!! Good job.
