OUTSTANDING!

SWEET-C just this week-end I mentioned to Angie that I forgot all about my non-smoking anniversary on AUGUST 9th or 10th....doesn't really matter. I was talking to her in the hallway and we were looking at pictures on the wall.....she said I can't believe it has been 12 years since our first 5K together...I said HEY! that means 12 years no-smoking We can't remember if I quit the day before I did my first 5K (I am pretty sure I did) or that day...not a biggie....

my point.....

one day you will STOP counting the days....

and that will be a good thing!

SO DODGER BLUE PROUD OF YOU!

I wish my quitting effected my bf. It didn't. He still smokes but he goes outside now, which makes it so I don't have to smell the stinky things but it's still no better for him

Thanks everyone... I am proud of myself...
I smoked a pack a day for 35+ years.... I used the patch and I have to say it really wasn't that bad... I had 4 or 5 times when I felt weak, but reached out for help and got through it...
Don't be afraid guys... I'll admit I did gain a few pounds 3-4, but that could have been from anything... and worth it... so worth it... I'm in the middle of some medical stuff lately and I just LOVE answering NO, when they ask me if I smoke... lol...
I was spending about $60 a month on cigs... that extra money is coming in very handy...
In my opinion, if you decide to try patches, buy the original NicoDerm brand, the Walgreens or other generic were just not the same to me.. and they were only a few dollars more.

Jacque... can I suggest just doing it for you... not waiting for your BF or the perfect date... just pick a day and try... There will always be people around you who smoke, or overeat... if we wait for them to 'heal' themselves we may never reach our goals... See if he'll agree to no smoking in the house or car and go from there... GOOD LUCK... now go set a date... {grin} BTW... I'm the worst reformed smoker ever.... LOL

I've been smoking for 34 years (except for during pregnancy and a few other months here and there). I know when I do it this time it will be for ME. My BF says he's on board to quit too, but we really only see each other every other week (when we don't have our kids), so I have no idea if he will stick it out when he's not around me. I know that if he doesn't, I will be tempted when we are together...but I will deal with that when the time comes. I lost 30 lbs for ME, and I plan on quitting smoking for ME as well.

JACQUE ~ I smoked from the time I was 16 until I was 43....27 years of 2 packs plus a day.

I applied SMOKENDERS tips that I learned going through the program but failed to quit.

Bottom line...the only thing that saved me from probably being dead today at 55 was the nicorette gum and the desire to finally quit NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN MY LIFE TO STOP ME ONCE AGAIN FROM QUITTING!

I won't lie....I got addicted to the gum...was on it for a little over a year then switced to the patch for a week-end....then on to Eclipse gum for the next 12 years....

You al;ready know all the answers to your questions....but the only other thing I will say is....

if you quit now....that vacation will be so much more special.....

you see...I was always gonna quit on vacation....after vacation...during vacation....this week-end...next week-end...next month....year....birthday...etc.

When I finally made the choice I made it for that day....and went weakley but bravely into the fog.....

I am alive today!
