Today was my fourth day smoke free and I relapsed by taking two puffs off a cigarette I found at my mother's house. It was disgusting and it happened so fast that when I realized what I was doing I threw it down and almost threw up! Just like with any addiction I know that I have to start over. I can no longer say I am 4 days free of nicotine but what I am wondering about is if my withdrawls are really going to be that bad again like the first few days? Shouldn't alot of the nic. be out of my system from the smoke free days I did have. I guess what I am wanting to know is have I really thrown away those clean days by my slip? I still feel the same as before I slipped as far as cravings go. They have not gotten any worse. If I wouldn't have relapsed today the cravings might would be less. Oh well, I may have lost a battle but I m not going to lose this war! Any advice on this would be great!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
