    I want to wish my good friend Nat all the strength on her goal to better health. For she has made a pact with herself to stop smoking. It will be tough my friend and you must be brave, but if you want to live 'till you're 136 this is a great way to start ;) :D ;)

    GOOD LUCK NATTY !! I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT !!

    Good Luck Nat!! I use to smoke a pack and a half a day. Quit about 14 years ago. Trust me I am really pulling for ya. You probably did not want all the hype, but trust me, the more people pulling for you, the better. So I will be right there if you get frustrated and just need to say #$@%^#$%%#$%&(((&%#%#$%^%$#%@%*(&%@#@^& ........&^&$#@^&...!

    Stick with it Nat! I couldn't. Gave up for 3 mths last year.....but slipped back into it! You see.....giving up is easy.....it's staying off them that is difficult.
    All the best......and be strong!!

    As many have echoed over and over again, You can do this Nat :)

    Do keep trying, and never lose your strength. Pray to God regularly, and I hope he will prevent you from smoking ever again.

    DO NOT LOSE YOUR COURAGE!

    :cool: Nat: I used to smoke 2 an 1/2 packs a day, an I did this for almost 40 years. I quit cold turkey about 9 years ago. The first day, I'd of smoked the exhaust off the tail pipe of an 18 wheeler, so I won't lie an say it's going to be easy. I will say however that the effort has been well worth it. I once again have a sense of smell. I once again have a sense of taste. You also won't believe how bad they smell, after you have quit for a while. I now have to walk away from the smell of others smoking, it smells just awful. I tell myself, "I can't believe that I put those things in my mouth". I think you know that there are quiet a few people pulling for you, an I most definably am one of them. It may help, "I sucked on Jolly Rancher Cinnamon fire candy every time I had the urge, after a while I didn't eat to many of them either, even though those I really really do like".

    Thanks

    Thanks to each, and everyone who posted in this thread. I see now who really cares. :-*

    You All are of great help, and I soo appreciate the words, the very helpful links, and telling me about
    yourself !!

    I'm on my 4th day being smoke-FREE now.
    And I know the "best" is yet to come"...:eek: :rolleyes:

    I don't quite feel like myself still ~ and part of me feels like it's missing.......but considering, I've smoked for about 25 yrs. non-stop, and chain-smoked...I'm doing and feeling quite good. :)

    BUT ~ no matter what.... ----->

    I Will Not Take Another Puff !!!

    ~***EVER***~

    Hi Nat, I wish you all the strength to succeed! I've been there as well (and still a non-smoker :D ).
    Good luck, and keep us informed (even if you fall back, OK?) ;)

    My sister quit and she is a good person for it. With all the tax they added per box is much cheaper to quit you could save all that money and get a house or something . I'm glad you did it for your health.

    Much love
    Suga

    @ SSK ~ Thank you so much :) Hey....would you mind telling me How YOU made it ??! :D

    @ Suga ~ Hmm...of course it's wonderful your sister quit !!
    I wish my brother and everyone of my family would...:rolleyes:
    .... but, just because someone smokes, doesn't make
    the person "bad" and the ones that never smoked or quit,
    "good". ;)

    I hope you keep telling her though how glad you are she stopped the cancer-sticks... :)
    ~Much Love to you too, Suga~

    @ Marja ~ LOL ! All I know is what I'll save will be my "List of my desire" when I reach the age of 100somethin' http://members.shaw.ca/wenpigs/love/wub.gif ... and YES !!
    Travel ~ The Wooooorld !!!

    You know BB....it sure isn't like eating sugar.:doubt:
    It is very, very tough to quit. Especially sine I enjoyed it so much.
    I know it's crazy.
    One of the most addictive things in the world. :mad:

    And to tell you the truth...I never ever thought in my life before
    I will stop my habit. Thought I wouldn't be able to anyways.

    This is one of the biggest things I have ever done in my life. Tough, tough, tough.
    I've done quitting other habits too. This one is the biggest challenge though ! :eek:

    Oh well...I'll get over it, LOL !



    I still and will always miss smoking.....but soo many reasons
    why I am determined to "never take another puff" !!!

    Thanks Cindy... :)
