    I am trying really hard to stick with this but I am finding it really hard at the moment, it seemed easier last time so I am mad I started again, I will persevere and get there in the end, just one hour at a time as Anne says.

    Rosalia and Carrie,

    You can absolutely do this. Carrie, while it may feel harder to do this time, it probably isn't really. I remember the days you struggled before, but you did get through them. Use your patches (consistently), and keep that one hour in mind. If an hour seems too long, make it 30 minutes.

    I know you want this, and I want it for you. Just holler if I can do anything more than I am already, okay?

    As for me, today the scale is down about a pound and a half, but it's been up and down all week. I've decided to lower my goal to one pound a week. That should be manageable, and heck, 52 pounds in a year is nothing to sneeze at. I'll take it happily.

    For everyone out there who is struggling with anything. Come join us here. Together, we can get through anything!! I know we can.

    Carrie and Anne.

    yes, maybe lower the goal ( as a step of it)is a good idea to keep the most important target.

    it's also for me up and down all the time.
    it is hard to abandon something that, as a last resort, unfortunately, is some help to us.
    Nobody smoke, drink, eat or is addicted to anything for no reason!

    we have to substitute that, to be able to give up it

    I think we do have to love and be very affectionate to ourselves and then it will get easier each hour. Intolerance and stiffness with our difficulties doesn't help either.

    as Bd said. hang in there! we are together in this
