The thing is that with the passage of time, my patience of not getting to addicted to cigarettes again is saturating day by day. Don't know why it all is happening with me. My doctor has told that it is normal. You know I have tried quitting smoking before too, and I know the amount of time/days I took off of smoking, once I get back to it somehow, I smoke hell lot of cigarettes. Why? Can anyone tell me to permanently quit it.
One: You may not be able to quit smoking alone. I can't, except when I am on estrogen, to avoid blood clots... and even when I on a drugs that can KILLS ME DEAD, if I smoke I sometimes smoke anyways. So you might need a supports systems, like a therapist, interested relative, friend or lover. And they can help you only if you absolutely, deadly honesty and straightforwardness about when you backslide and smoke more.
Two: You need to retrain your thoughts every day, never stop working to occupy your times elsewhere, watch movies, read a book or do work instead of smoking cigarettes.
