First off, I’ve been sober 94 days first and longest time sober. However, a week ago I quit smoking – had been flawless with it. It’s been difficult but I knew it would be worth it.
The other day I was running errands and my wife asked me to pick up a carton of smokes at the Indians which I reluctantly agreed to do. At this same time I was also coming off of one anti-depressant and starting another so not feeling great. I smoked 1 cigarette. I knew I’d be pissed but I did.
Early sobriety from any substance is so fragile and this was just one more reminder that I need to continue to watch my triggers and be prepared. I haven’t smoked since and my goal today was to not drink and not smoke.
