Your heart thanks you and so does the Boy. I lost my dad to a heart attack at 55. He was a smoker.

Good for you! Don't look back!

We like you better than a pillar of salt.

Pray for me that I have the courage to.............quit.

I quit ten years ago after 40 years of smoking and about six hard attempts at quitting. My doc put me on the Zyban program and it worked like a charm. Mind you - I obeyed instructions to the letter and stayed on the Zyban for the full three months. It made quitting much easier and I am eternally grateful such a help was finally available.
I'll pray for you - nicotine is the toughest thing to quit and its grip is deadly.
Stay the course...your heart will be much the better for it.

Hooray for you! Day by day it will get easier.

Quit cold turkey 4 years and 10 months ago. I still get the cravings, sometimes so bad I seriously think about buying a pack and smoking just one before throwing the rest out. I know I am too weak to actually do that so I haven't. I'll pray for all of us trying to stay off the cancer sticks.

Kat, both of my parents died of lung cancer after being heavy smokers for years. If they had quit sooner or never started in the first place, they might still be alive today. Needless to say, that was a little hint to me not to start smoking. It will be better for you and your son, I feel sure.

Just think about how much more money you'll have and that you'll have both hands free to spend it...!

Prayers!

I feel that way about Joe.

The coffee that is, that I gave up a week ago.

And all that sugar and cream that went with him.

Green tea just isn't cutting it.


I found myself driving past the Dunkin Donuts last night when dh had the kids at the hockey game.

Sigh

God bless you CC, yours is a much harder goodbye. But like Angela said, your heart's already on the mend.

What are you doing instead of smoking?

You've done it before and you can do it again. Don't suck like me. You can do it!

I hope to follow in your footsteps soon.

4 years smoke free today for both my wife and myself. Best of luck going smoke-free, Kat. You'll start off with things pissing you off more than ever, but that'll eventually wear off. Hang in there!
