I have been very fortunate that I never had to try to quit smoking because I've never started. I have tried to lose weight so many times and so many things require my attention that it gets in my way of losing weight and I end up back where I started. As you probably can see, I have been a member for a while now but have not gone very far. I really stinks that we are required to eat to survive. Smokers don't require a cigarette to survive, even though mentally they probably believe so (and like I said I've never started so I don't know personally) What I do know is that I feel just as bad about myself when allow myself to get off track and go back to the bad habits. So like I tell my smoker patients that it is hard and you just have to keep trying. So here I am trying again. I know one of these days the good habits are going to stick. I have to retrain my brain that I'm not bad when I screw up and I just have to keep trying and learn to pat myself on the back when I do well.
