    Hi, I am new to this community, I relapsed after 10 days of smoking cessation and I decided to seek more help.
    I am looking for other members who are quitting to embark on this journey together.
    All the help is appreciated

    Good Morning 

    killcigrettes, Congrats in your quit! and look for support, that is the way!

    Here you will find a lot good comments how to quit and keep your Quit!

    - Distract your self, when the crave comes...
    - Drink water instead.
    - Do something instead of thinking on smokes.
    - Discus with someone you know about how you feel in that Moment, it helps to release some stress.

    One day at the time! You can do this!

    Hi killcigrettes,

    Welcome to the forum.

    It's great that you were able to stay smoke free for 10 days.  Use that experience as a learning process.  What triggered you to give in and light up?  What could you do in the future to remain smoke free?  When you are tempted to give in, think about all of the reasons why you want to quit.  And don't be afraid to reach out for help.  I found my friends were a really good support system for me, whether they were smokers or not.  There is strength in numbers, so this forum was a lifeline for me.  Post often.  If nothing else, it is a good place to vent.  We are all in the same boat and we all get each other.  Try to stay strong and positive.
