Fuck.  Accepted and smoked two fags in outside the pub tonight.

Start again.
Start again.

Fuck.

It's done now.  Onwards & upwards.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Thanks Mrs P.  Back home now with cheese and onion crisps and home brew picked eggs.

Dont stress. I did that about four months in when I had had one too many in the pub. Just think of all the ones you haven't smoked not those two you did.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Quite pleased (Show off? Moi?) to say that I still have not had a fag since January. Pretty much got the hang of the vape-thing too, so don't need to chew tyres ...

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Ten days into nicotine patches; reached the "coughing myself inside-out" stage.  Cravings nothing like as bad as giving up booze.

Spent yesterday evening coughing.  Spent the night not sleeping and aching all over.  Having a clod in the middle of this is Not Fair.

Is that not SOP for giving up the fags? Or did I get that the wrong way round?

Now 7 weeks off vaping, after doing that since stopping smoking 3 years 7 months ago.

So after about 3 months off vaping I experienced strange cigarette-lovin’ thoughts and strong urges to smoke. Resumed vaping  :-[

I’m sick of it again and my plan is to stop between now and my 4th anniversary of giving up smoking at the end of the month.

Good luck.

Ditto. You just have to keep trying to quit. I must have tried a dozen times, some attempts lasting almost 12 months, until it finally worked.

I’d recommend trying hypnosis (if you haven’t already).   I gave up *like that* and no real cravings since. 

Works for some people but not for others.  It’s not cheap (around £200-£300) but, in my case, worth it.
