You can do it Rita we are all behind you!!
Hay I forgot to mention that I used a bunch of Jolly Rancher Fire cinnamon candies while withdrawing from the smokes. Hay I know sugar ain't good for you, but it sure as heck has got to be better than them coffin nails. If you're worried about weight gain, drink a Slim Fast every time you would have reached for a cig. Try and distract yourself with something else if the urge strikes, believe it or not this seemingly silly thing works every time for me. I also look at this as one would look at being a recover from any other addiction, one day at a time smoke free. Also don't be to hard on yourself, so you slipped, you picked yourself up, dusted yourself off and started at day one again.
couldnt give up the coffee I'm trying not to eat so much either lol--dont want to gain weight-I didnt last time--so I'm hoping I wont this time either because the first time I did
Thank you so much-thats really great to know-I do appreciate it

I'm not religious or anything. But Steve's success just by doing what he does, truly amazes me !

I'm soooooo proud of you!!
And I know, you can do it!
Next, time we meet......you'll be a nonsmoker!!

Oh yeah...the weight gain...
After I quit I became a lover of chocolate. Never really had the 'sweet tooth' before.
Well...after a few weeks I have gotten a womanly figure and became sweeter in general. http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/11.gif
Butt...I mean but !! Everything is almost under control now, you hear.......guys/men ??
Thanks so much-sure will be looking forward to that dinner!I bet you'll be glad I'm not smoking the next time we visit huh?I was smoking like a fiend last time Just think no more smoke getting in your face in the car!Remember me trying to hide it from mom that I was smoking lol.She's tickled to death I'm quitting again!
Yep!! But, I wasn't gonna say anything about that! *cough*
How about, your ol' man?? He joining ya?
Just think, about how you could keep yourself's busy so ya don't think about that anymore!! LOL

Hey, I think this is a splendid idea !
BOTH will stay fit and trim !! http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/15.gif
It is/was pretty amazing. I quit on a Wednesday, and the next day I had to go to work. I would guess that 99% of the people there smoke and I was literally standing in the middle of them (all of them lit up before starting work) and it didn't bother me at all. In fact it seems like I never smoked at all. I don't even think about it.
You'll do just fine Rita. I know you will.
Morning Rita !
Not sure whether you're at work already or not.
Just wanting to say...
Another Way !
See ya !!
how many years did you smoke and how much?Were you a light smoker or like me, a heavy one?I'm doing ok but I think about them every minute(for now)but I know in time I'll not think about them,but I'm figuring a couple of months
My thoughts are with you Rita. I know exactly how it feels......I've given up every year for the past three! Usually about August.....and it lasts until September probably. I intend to bite the bullet again in the next month or two....
Stick with it mate!
doing pretty well so far-thanks-have a great day sis
Sorry..and I don't mean to preach. Remember, I used to be the
heaviest chimney-smoking person on planet earth.
But...why wait ??
Until you get sick ?
Take care of yourself, buck
Hi Brad-thanks-you'll make it next time I bet.If you fail just keep trying--you'll make it--I know it can be done,I've done it twice,and the crazy thing is I started back both times-once after 15 yrs even and I know how hard it is to do--I wonder why anyone would be such an idiot lol If I make it this time I hope I have the good sense not to ever smoke again.you have a good day bud
I've never had any luck in quitting but i hope u are able to beat the addiction once again Rita.
Also would like to add (hopefully for other people who think they "CAN'T"... )...
I had the lowest self-esteem...always thinking I'd NEVER EVER would be able to quit my "BELOVEDCIGGIES".
It's been now exactly 8 months tomorrow ~ smoke-free.
Thanks snowbound,I believe I will(i really hope)
Took me many years to stop (I started really young ). After countless efforts over the years, I got a stack of videos & one of them gaming consoles. Loads of that nicotine gum and just watched, played & chewed until I got through the first 3 days... The family had been warned & knew to hide.http://forum.team-ingame.de/images/smilies/sofa.gif
Took me a year of reducing the gum & then lozenges to be completely nicotine free - but I think it's been 3yrs now. Get the mindset right - assume for you it's do-able, cos it is.
Good Luck Rita
