Well. I've been smoking at least one a day for a while now. I started the steps again and I have been working them. I just haven't found the desire to quit again. Isn't that dumb ?! Man my brain is wacked. I just think a smoke sounds good. I've almost made it 24 hours again. I am going on a weekend with the bf/fiance and he doesn't know how much I've been smoking. Hell I don't think I realize how much I am smoking. I don't smoke when he is around. Anywho.. I guess I am trying again. Not fully commited to it but I've made a decision and that is where it has to start. I am asking for your prayers. I am better with cold turkey then trying to ween off with e cigs. So don't know how long I will make it or if I will even make it through the night. I am not even sure why I am writing this. . . But I am here. I have found so much good people here and sweet support. I will try it again.

Dont pick up LisaM. ! I just thought I would have one drag and BOOM! I was right back at it. It crept up, but slowly but surely up to one ore more a day.

In other news I made it the day yesterday. I am going to stay in the now and say for right now, I haven't had one yet.. If I can make it tell later today, then I am headed off for the weekend with my boyfriend and its easier not to smoke around him. He knows that I have not been 100% clean from smoking but he doesn't have any idea how the addict brain can minimilize the whole thing in an effort to deny. Anyway staying in the moment. I am at work, and I will not be smoking for now.
I can't He can...

Tucking the book under your arm and taking it to a Nicotine Anonymous meeting will certainly be beneficial.

Good luck.

--- driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity.

---there are those too who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.

... I need AA more than it needs me.

--- I fight recovery tooth and nail....
I'm not used to being sane, it just doesn't seem natural.


...... According to the great spiritual teachers, ignorance does not result from what we don’t know; ignorance results from what we think we do know.

---Some think that 2+2=5 and believe it.
Some know that 2+2=4 and can't stand it.


--- I didn't have a very happy childhood
but I sure am having a long one !


---Dry since 1989
working daily on getting/staying SOBER.


---If you want to drink, that's your business
...If you want to quit, that's AA's business.


... Tell me, I'll forget;
... Show me, I'll remember;
... Engage me, I'll understand.


---Most problems are psychological.
Most solutions are spiritual .
