You can do it!! I found that the "habit" was harder to break than the addiction to nico...does that make sense??

Good luck to you...if you slip up..just start over, you'll make it!
good girl! Just do it, however works for you :D

Oh Joyce, YOU CAN DO IT! No one will say it was easy, it is an addiction and a habit that is terribly hard to break. Do it 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, etc at a time. Be sure to tell all your friends, they will help too. Keep yourself busy, get some flavored toothpicks or sugarless tic tacs something to reach for. YOU CAN DO IT :!:

You folks are such a source of inspiration! I forget that I can come here for more than just the quilting stuff!
They say quitting smoking is harder than kicking heroin, I believe em. I took the new rx for the first month and it worked! I smoked for the first two weeks. The thing about that rx is that it got me through the worst of the physical w/d, now I just have to deal with the cravings. Sometimes they are strong and sometimes they are fleeting I just remember everything passes, I tell myself I am a non-smoker and I smell sooooo much better for it and I wait for it to pass!

Ive been stopped for nearly 18 months! I did it with the patches and didnt find it too difficult at all. I was a heavy smoker for years and had never even thought about stopping until one Sunday night in April. I had lost my sister the previous year and I swear to this day that she was sat on my shoulder telling me not to light that cigarette up! Ive never had one since!
Well done...just take it one day at a time....you'll do it if you're determined enough!

I quit 6/1/07 after 30 years of the stench and expense. I had my Dr. prescibe Chantix and it worked like a dream. I have stopped before cold turkey, I never smoked when I was pregnant, but now both my kids smoke, and my mom and sister died of lung cancer. Yeah, I know, you think the 1st death would have been enough to make me realize how stupid I was. :cry: :cry: It was time to quit for good. Once in a while I want one, but only for about 5 min and the urge passes. And its true, when you are smoking you have no idea how much it stinks. But boy, does it ever reek :shock: :shock: :shock: And let's see..$5-10 per day on smokes times 7 days a week is up to $70 a week :shock: :shock: That's a heck of a lot of fabric in anyone's book :P :P
Stay strong, learn to speak up for yourself- (Honey, if you're going to smoke that OK, but please not near me). If you gain a few pounds (which I did), well its much easier to lose weight than fight cancer.

Best of luck to you, get on this forum if you need some support, we're here..every day, and darn near every minute!!

Good for you Karen. Your sister was probably prodding you but now she's a grinnin' :D My uncle had a massive heart attack and I had sympathy pains....he didn't quit, I did. It does take determination, with or without a patch or any other assist.
