Well today is the day I have made my decision to quit smoking after being told I am less than 15% away from having emphysema and I am only 45 I have way too much too live for  I want to see all my grandchildren grow up to be adults get married and have their family's I have the gum and lozenges and I am off to the Doctor's  on Thursday to get a script for chanpix as well .  I am going in with all guns blazing so to speak no pun intended I hope I can do it I know I have talked myself into it that much that I feel I can do it  in my mind I don't want to smoke anymore that is how much I have talked myself in to it  I am ready to do this . and being how Mark hasn't smoked for 3 years its more support for me as well as going to Kambu medical centre and using their program kicking butts . I look at it this way if Mark can do it I can too .....

Wish you well! The first month is the worst, but it tapers off after that. I haven't smoked since March 31, 2006 and I'm so happy I made the decision to stop - but I still miss it, especially when stressed.

You can do it, girl!

Should be easier for you than the old man...as he had you around him and still at it.

I guess I'd average about 7 a week .... and I bet for many that'd be about as good as not-at-all.  [that's smokes, not packets].

Just think of the money you'll save if you're a pack-a-day or worse...

You can do it.

Ten years ago I was told that I had to have heart bypass surgery.
I gave up cold turkey and I could not be happier.

I am also now a member of the zipper club!

Good luck Mrs S.

Cheers

Thanks Macca, well its just turned 8pm here, and yes I cracked , but only cos I was stressing out about my stepdaughter  she is moving from where she was living, and is moving to Leichardt  and the removalist was meant to be dropping her stuff at her new place at 5.30 pm I was stressing as it was getting late and no one showed up so starkers went to ring his daughter to see what was going on , it turned out that the removalist had only arrived  at her old place at 7pm its going to take them another 3 or so hours to get to Leichardt  so we came home I got mark to get me a pkt of fags lol  Damm I should have taken my gum I never thought of it , all in all though I didn't do too bad, that is the longest I went with out ciggys (12.00 pm to 8.00pm )

It took a minor heart attack for me to finally give them up after many previous attempts. Been off smokes now going on 9 years with no regrets.

You can do it!

To do it,you have to change your life. Be ready for fighting with yourself. To win something to mean to lose in something.

You have to do it!!!...Be strong!

Okay, so I have ceated a new incentive... or should I say, I made a new house rule that should be helpful! 

As of last Friday this house has been a 100% smoke-free zone... and will be strictly enforced by a swift kick up the backside for defaulters.

Upstairs [inside] has always a been non-smoking area anyway... now so is downstairs, the front and back verandahs upstairs.

Hehe, that means my sister and other family smokers will have to go right outside now... well away from the exits/entrances.

10 + metres should do it.

It'll be 3 years for me on January 15 2013... and I won't be celebrating the anniversary with a cigar.
