Lisa -

Welcome back. The door stays open 24 hours a day. Like several have said already, very few succeed the first time.

I am curious about what led you to fall off the wagon. Some, it's event-oriented, reaction to stress. Me, it's no good reason -- I start looking at smoking through rose-colored glasses, remembering how good the after dinner smoke used to taste, or socializing in the smoking area, and forgetting about hacking up a lung here and there.

Sometimes thinking about why can help you avoid the next pitfall.

Keep posting and let us know how this quit is going.


One year, two months, six days, 14 hours. 5623 cigarettes not smoked, saving $773.28. Life saved: 2 weeks, 5 days, 12 hours.
