Good job all you ex-smokers and soon to be ex-smokers. I quit on a Sunday October 8th 2002 and never had another cig. It is just weird. Sometimes I think smoke smells good but most of the time it makes me sick. Now if I could just give up the ice cream!!!! Irish ;D

Well cricket, I won't tell you it is easy and you should do it and if I can you can, as I don't know you, but what I will say is a year down the line I still love the smell when someone has been smoking and I could even say that I would start again easily at the drop of a hat, but having said all that, my skin, chest, sense of taste and general health are loads better, I am slightly richer (although it does not always notice in my purse) and my home and car do not smell like an ashtray when I enter either of them.

So I wish you all the best of luck and agree posting on here will make a difference.  It helped me enormously even to the extent that part of the reason I stayed off them was not wanting to let all the people on here who supported me down.

So good luck and I am with you all the way...

Mim

You are so right about having this board to keep me accountable.  Sometimes our own family means well and wants to help but they don't.  I will let you know how Sunday goes.

Good Morning all, I'm so glad I found this thread!  I am a smoker and have been for over 30 yrs.  Just went to Rumy dr. couple a days ago and he mentioned to me again that I need to stop the smoking.  I am over weight and scared of gaining any more weight.  I know I need to stop but just haven't had the will power.  The doctor told me there is a new pill out that is working for alot of people, so I think I will make an appt. with my primary and give it a shot.  I have quit a couple of times in the past but only lasted about 6 months before starting.  I'll let you all know when I'm ready and will come in here and post alot more I'm sure.  I ALWAYS HATED THE SMELL OF THE SMOKE so I don't know why I still do it.  UGHHHHH!!!

I just logged in after being missing for a good while.  Lonnnnng Story!  Saw this and just wanted to tell Mim that everytime I see this and know we helped it makes me tear up.  Yes I still have tears.  I wanted to use the moving control and tell Mim that I am just so veryyyyyy veryyyyyyy proud of her.  But am having "stupid" problems today.  not the problems ....me.


Mim...you go girl!!!  We love it!!!! (Grandpa and I)
