Then you weren't ready yet - and you have to have your mind on side with this: if you aren't ready to give up, you won't. You'll find reasons - any reason - to give up giving up and go back to it.

So don't get discouraged: try again later. Perhaps join a support group - most US states have a helpline that can get you in touch with free ones. Just knowing you aren't the only one going through it can help.

But for Elephant | [mastadon] 's sake: don't give up as a new year resolution. Those rarely last the week ...
