Confessions Of Relapsed Smoker

Smoking is a nasty habit. That's a pretty widely accepted statement that few folks would disagree with. I smoked heavily for many years - sometimes consuming upwards of a carton per week. I've written in this space before about my New Year's resolution some years ago to quit and the uphill battle to divorce Joe Camel. I'm happy to report that I was smoke-free from mid spring of 2007 up until this last spring when I lost my job. On the day I was let go, my psyche went into panic mode and my first stop was the gas station so I could light up on my way home. Not only was it a ridiculous notion that smoking would somehow make things better, but I also shouldn't have been spending money for a pack of smokes. I'm not proud of myself; in fact I find it quite embarrassing that I started smoking again/Henry Johnston, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Have you ever relapsed into smoking again?
