OT: I quit today! (Updates added on first post)
SMOKING that is! I quit smoking today!!!

I've been mulling over quitting for MONTHS. But I knew that I wouldn't until I was ready. Well, today, I went to Walgreens to pick up some smokes, and came home with Nicorette gum instead. I guess I made up my mind.

Please, I need all the encouragement I can get. DH still smokes, but he said this will definitely encourage him to quit too. *crosses fingers*


*telling myself*
go on.. hit submit... submitting the post and telling everyone is committing to quitting.

It's day 19. Still quit.
Join me in The No Smoking Zone for updates and encouragement.

Thank you!!!

I know I can do it. Both times I found out I was pregnant, I quit THE same day, cold turkey. And didn't start again until they were at least a year old. This time, I have the gum to fall back on. I have complete faith in myself that I can quit.

I just hope I never start again.

Good luck, Silver!

When i quit - many, many moons ago - i did it on a whim too. I was thinking that i needed to stop, looked at my last two and thought, "well, when i finish these i'll just not buy another pack". There was no ceremony, just the resolution to simply stop.

Reward your decision and focus your attention by starting a really fun project just for YOU. It'll help, i'm sure!

*fingers crossed*

That is great news, Silver!! You can do it!!!!!!!!!! The faith in yourself is the most important thing. Have something to fall back on- in those really, really bad - I need one right now or I'll go crazy times- something that you can do to try to push through it. I quit cold turkey the day I met my husband. I had a few times that I thought I'd go back, but I didn't.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Yay, Sil!!!!

You can do it, chica! You're stronger than those little cancer-sticks, and, more importantly, you are worth it!!!! Quitting is the best thing you can do for yourself and your family. Good luck, momma!
