    Day 2 of not smoking! So far so good. I’m using the patch. I haven’t had any really bad cravings …..yet!

    Hi Stomper! Welcome back! Congratulations on your decision to try again! Quitting is hard but it can be done! 
    I feel that checking back in to the site often definitely helps me when I’m having severe cravings and want to give up. 
    Good luck and keep it up!

    UGH…. I just lit a cigarette. Took 2 puffs and put it out. Tasted so gross. 
    My husband and daughter are smokers, and an open pack was sitting on the kitchen counter. It was like I couldn’t resist. It was like I just wanted to make sure I wouldn’t like smoking that cigarette! And thankfully I didn’t like it at all.
    I will keep on course!

    stomper,
    Thank you for your honesty and sharing your experience with this slip. It is one many of us have gone through. Luckily it turned out to be a good thing since the taste reinforced one of your reasons to quit: you don't enjoy it.

    For the future, if you are comfortable doing so, having an open discussion with family members and how they can support you may help. This doesn't mean you are asking/pressuring them to quit, but just support you in your efforts by being more discreet about their smoking.

    Congratulations for keeping on course!
