    I need a cathartic confession!!!

    As some of you know i quit smoking in february - nearly 4 months ago!! then i started LT and the concept of not eating drinking or smoking was a nightmare!!

    I have been fighting for the last 2 weeks and have really struggled. Also my periods have reappeared after 2 years of me preventing them with my amazing contraceptive pill that stops them all together!

    so generally been feeling a bit down in the dumps and as a result, have just bought some cigarettes and smoked one. :copon:

    it wasnt that pleasant and feel a bit sick now but knowing me it wont be my last. :mad:

    ah well - at least i know i CAN quit smoking so a relapse isnt such a bad thing - and much better than a food binge!

    :break_diet:

    thanks for reading!

    O-Ohhhh! :eek:

    Don't know what to say really.

    I became smoke-free in 2000 and I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that it was THE hardest thing I've EVER done, and I include giving birth 3 times!

    I will never touch another cigarette because I know I couldn't do it again. HOWEVER I know that lots of people do give up and go for years sometimes before starting again. Then they give up again. I guess it's the 'don't give up giving up' thing.

    There are several smokers on here - you're not alone! If this helps you cope with LT I guess no-one can really knock it. No real point in beating yourself up about it. If you ARE going to do it you might as well enjoy it IMHO xx

    I know what your going though! I stopped after new year and i still crave everyday....I have even got in the car at midnight to go the garage to get some cigs but stopped myself. Thats one thing i am worried about on this diet - I may take up that nasty old habit to stop thinking of food!!
