I have tried to quit several times. It seems I use smoking as a stress reliever. Things go wrong or something happens that is stressful I reach for that cigarette. I have recently tried the ecig and by using that was able to cut way down and thought maybe I would make it that time. Then one of our beloved pets got ill and passed away and I found myself back to the beginning. I beat myself up all the time about this, I think about it when I pick up a cigarette, I think about when I empty and ashtray or open a new pack. It isn’t that I don’t want to quit, it is as you said, very challenging and I just have not found my “ah ha” moment yet. I am not giving up, I will beat this.
