    Ok, here I am on day I dunno w/o a ciggie...
    I'm dying to do something so I decide that even though my chronic fatigue kept me home yesterday I'm outta here today. So, I head for the thrift stores and as I'm looking at the fabrics I see some quilts on another rack. I hot foot it over and as I'm checking out the quilts I realize I know the name of the pattern, yeah me! I'm looking at a log cabin pattern and I know that's what it is, wow maybe I really am a quilter albeit in the early stages. It was all too exciting.
    I went back to the rack and found two nice pieces of thin whale cordoruy 1 in plain royal blue and the other in the same color and shade with little planes on it and then low and behold I spy a piece of that really nice warm and natural with no price on it. I get up to the register and find out everythhing is 50% off. great finds, great prices and great day to boot!

    I've stopped temporarily about 7 times before :thumbdown: so I'm hoping this time I stick with it! I've been smoking for about 35 years, long time for a gal whos only 25 hunh? LOL
    Anyway, I want my daughter to quit so hopefully if I make it this time she'll stop without having to get pregnant again (the only time she's ever quit before).
    Anyway, congrats on your 7 that is awesome :P :D !!!!

    YOU CAN DO IT! :D Just telling everyone that you are trying and how long it has been, is the 1st step. Now we will keep asking you how you are doing and you will be way too embarassed :oops: if you have slipped up. Smoked for 22 years, was at 3 packs a day and quit cold turkey with my DH blowing smoke at me :evil: He has smoked now for 60 years and is reaping the rewards :cry: Fire up that sewing machine :lol:

    I quit 15 years ago. I found a week that I needed to be crabby .....I was a teacher in an inner-city school.....and I quit. I stayed "quit" and it was a very good year at school because I had a need to be crabby for a week. So find a need to be crabby for a week or two and just quit. :!:

    About five years now for me. It was torture at first, but eventually got easier. I think a big turning point was a few months in, when I got into my car and it did not smell like smoke. I had so many activities linked to smoking in my life, it took ages to unhook myself from cigarettte AND (coffee, phone, after seex, food....on and on) but this is the longest I have been smoke free since age 11.

    There are times even now when I get stressed out and want one, but have always convinced myself to wait 24 hours. By that time, my resolve is back.

    Take each day as a new challenge, and reward yourself for milestones. It gets easier! :P

    Way to go!
    I'm working on almost month 3. It's been hard, but I'm trying hard.
    Did "fall" a couple times, but I'm right back to none.
