Good Luck! I've tried many many times and just couldn't kick it. Everytime life threw a lil stress at me I was back on wagon and my coworkers thanked me for starting back up >.<
Good luck ! I quit on May 1. I was a pack a day smoker for 30 years. Its hard but gets a little easier every day. I used the nicorette patch and now I chew the gum. Its not THAT bad. I wish all that are trying to quit the best. YOU CAN DO IT !!
HUGGY I NEED A SMOKE!!!!LOL Just kidding! Going on day number two!!!
YOU CAN DO IT!, i set this disgusting black lung picture as my desktop. that works

Good Luck Huggy and JumbaMya

so far so good.....actually been over 31 hours already. Without the need for my "morning" smokes, I find I can lay around in bed for an extra 1/2 hour. This is good.
And, yes ID, I do. I won't today tho.
Keep up the good work JumbaMya. We can do it!
07-04-2007, 07:27 AM
Good luck to you guys!
Good for both of you! Just don't quit, quitting!
07-04-2007, 10:19 AM
Just keep in mind although it is hard now....it will be worth it in the end.
07-04-2007, 10:21 AM
Good luck to both of you quitting you can do it. I quit cold turkey when i got pregnant with my daughter and am hoping to stay quit when she is born, T-pot you think you can encourage Lee to quit for me lol he said he wants to before the baby is born.
I would like to wish yous good luck!!!
My mom quit back feb 1st, I would like to say to her great work mom, she had the patch did her first step!! went to put on step two and had allergic reaction, she quit cold hand after that!! and has done one hell of a job!!!!!!!!!!! wtg mom!!
Lol if my mom can do it, anyone can!!!! (as I do not ever remember her not smoking) I think now if I seen her with a ciggerette in her hand I would prob die!! in laughter cause its soooooo Not her anymore!!!!

Good luck to both of you! You can do it!
July 3rd.(yesterday) was 5 years smoke free for me.
I bought myself a bag of suckers to keep my hands busy when I quit and it helped. Quiting is the best thing you can do for yourself!

07-04-2007, 01:11 PM
KWB Needs a clue,a life, a job, a hobby and a parrot.
The parrot because they are clueless they'll talk to anyone.
Their only job in life is to give you a hobby!

Check out this web site. (http://www.whyquit.com/)
I've posted this site a few times before because it really motivated me to stick with it.
I'm not even sure how long its been now, maybe 5 years?
Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family.
Good luck and don't quit quitting!

When you quit smoking, within ...
Your blood pressure, pulse rate, and the temperature of your hands and feet will all return to normal.
Your blood oxygen level will have increased to normal and carbon monoxide levels will have dropped to normal.
Damaged nerve endings have started to regrow and your sense of smell and taste are beginning to return to normal.
Your entire body will test 100% nicotine-free and over 90% of all nicotine metabolites will now have passed from your body via your urine. You can also expect the symptoms of chemical withdrawal to have peaked in intensity. Your bronchial tubes are beginning to relax thus making it easier to breathe. Your lung capacity has also started to increase.
10 days to 2 weeks
Your body has physically adjusted to again functioning without nicotine and the more than 3,500 chemical particles and 500 gases present in each and every puff.
2 weeks to 3 months
Your heart attack risk has started to drop. Your lung function is beginning to improve.
3 weeks to 3 months
Your circulation has substantially improved. Walking has become easier. Your chronic cough, if any, has likely disappeared.
1 to 9 months
Any smoking related sinus congestion, fatigue or shortness of breath have decreased. Cilia have regrown in your lungs thereby increasing their ability to handle mucus, keep your lungs clean, and reduce infections. Your body's overall energy has increased.
Your excess risk of coronary heart disease has dropped to less than half that of a smoker.
5 to 15 years
Your risk of stroke has declined to that of a non-smoker.
Your risk of death from lung cancer has declined by almost half if you were an average smoker (one pack per day). Your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat and esophagus has now decreased.
Your risk of coronary heart disease is now that of a person who has never smoked.
