Your thinking is sound. You just need more tools to prepare you for the hurdles in life. Congratulations for having 7 months under your belt. At least you know now you can live without them. Las Vegas is one big smokescreen. Best not to hang out there again.
What works for me to live nicotine free is the fellowship of nicotine-anonymous.org
I've been a member for over a dozen years and still benefit from the commitment.
Where do you live? Hopefully there are meetings within an hour's distance. If not there are phone meetings and online meetings daily, too. If you're near the east coast, there's a great weekend retreat coming up in just one month that I go to every year. It's so revitalizing!
Let me know if I can be of further support to you.
We can do together what we cannot do alone. Keep coming back; it works when we work it.
With grace and self esteem, honor the Passionate Tiger in You. Refresh your personal high regard daily, to live happy, joyous and free!
I think I am ready to quit again! Again...... I set a goal last year to to quit in 2011 because I did not want to be a smoker by the time I was 30. I did well! I lasted 7 months and took a trip to Vegas and had a great weekend and couldn't resist the temptation. Before I quit the first time, I smoked a pack every two days. Now, I am at a pack a week, but I want to stop completely. What's the use of trying to lose weight and be healthy if I am just going to smoke! Doesn't make sense!
