    Brad.....I Will !
    And you know what! I think you should give it another try.
    Just because you didn't stick to it the first time...doesn't make you a failure, like some people like to call it.

    It takes alot of people a few times actually, until they're truly "through" with it...and never smoke again ! :)

    You can do it too !!

    Just think. You want to be able to walk your beautiful daughter
    down the aisle sometime in the future, right ? ;) ;) ;)


    That means...Daddy has to stay healthy. :)

    Here's a link I want to show you...and others in "our shoes" !!!

    http://whyquit.com/whyquit/A_NicodemonsLies.html

    AND:

    http://whyquit.com/

    If you look on the left side...and see the people that died young of smoking-cancer...maybe....juuuuust maybe, it'll make
    click in your head. :)

    The site also has such great reading material. It's really inspiring.

    Oh, and...I think they tell you to do "cold-turkey"
    While your suffering may be shorter...you don't have to.
    Much on the market that can take the "edge" off. !

    I'm not saying that she was bad just smelly. Sorry But it is true . very one in my family smokes or use to. I know that you can can really smell Some things can get me. I know that she is use to use a lot of gum and stuff to cover up the bad smell. I never smoked but I know that if it wasn't for the smell I would cuz the people who smoke or thin I would do it to be thin LOL

    I sure am lucky that my allergies do not permit me to go anywhere near a cigarette. I see people smoke everyday, and my allergies do not permit me to go near them (I start sneezing due to the smell, sometimes its very bad sneezing). So its quite assured that I wont be able to smoke. ;)

    Firecat: I'm sooo proud of you that you're allergic to
    ciggie-smoke !!! ;):D:)

    Suga: I knew what you meant...I just wanted to clarify
    the "good - bad" thingy. ;)

    I know we smokers smell ! :oops:

    You won't believe how many young girls, especially ! ~ start smoking just to stay thin !!
    I can only shake my head to this. And hope they'll come to their senses someday. :doubt:

    Hi Nat,

    I made it by failing four times :'(
    Then at one time I decided it was now or never :D ... and it worked!
    (Got a lot of support from friends and family... and a girlfriend who put up with the withdrawal symptoms :blink: ).

    So, just keep your goal in sight, and don't be afraid... At some point you wake up without the urge to smoke ;)
    And if you relapse (parties are really bad :ninja: ) don't despair, just stop again! :-*

    Hey SSK !! :)

    Don't cry or feel ashamed. Just like I told Brad....sometimes it takes a couple "swings" to finally wing it ! ;)

    And this is my second time. And like YOU....I say...NOW or NEVER !
    Isn't that great ?!! We have something in common !! :D

    Good thing you had "loving" support ! ;) :)

    I am glad that you made it Nat!! You want to know how people made it. Well I think that WHY I did it is probably the strangest story. I started smoking when I was 12, about 6 a day. By the time I was 17 I smoked a pack a day, and by 18 a pack and a half a day. When I quit, cigarettes were $7.50 a pack here in Canada, and this was in 1990 :eek: . I was working an hour a day just to smoke.

    Now, I was heavy as a teen, but by the time I was 18 I was about 220 lbs (I'm 5'7).

    (Now get ready for the funny part)
    My hormones were just raging and I knew that I had to get into shape to help my cause. So I started exericising (weightlifting, running), and I got into very good physical shape. Not enough I thought. So I needed some new threads. How do I pay for these............lets see......I really like smoking(I really did)....but I really like women too....OK quit smoking, I will smell better too(might help the plan I thought). So I quit that day and never looked back through my own stubborness, and a fondness for the ladies. Told you it was a strange reason to quit. Who knows, maybe one day if I become impotent I may take it back up...LOL :p

    I wish I never started when I was a teenager. :rolleyes:
    It's hard to quit, although smoking doesn't give you anything at all
    and it costs a lot of money.

    I really hope to stop smoking one day.
    Not only for my health, but also for my wife & sons.
    I don't smoke inside the house. That really isn't allowed. :)

    So Nat, I know how hard it can be, having quitted several times
    without actually succeeding. :doubt:

    Best of luck to you to stop smoking forever. :-*

    :) Way to go Nat: As I told you in my previous post, I smoked for a long time. I also was one of those who said "Isn't a damn person on this earth who can tell me what I should an should not do". I agree that quiting was properly one of the hardest things I have ever done. I will tell you however that you have the key ingredient to succeeded, that is the simple desire to want to quit. I along with others believe that smoking was learned, an what we learn we can unlearn. It also helps if you have something you can focus on besides smoking when the urge hits. Needless to say, I urge all who have developed this nasty habit to quit, but they have to want to do so, baring that nothing will help. It also helps to remember that we ex smokers can never ever even take one little puff ever again. My eldest grandson had a good idea, he said that if one wanted to start they should take the tobacco out of the cigarette an substitute it with dog droppings "smells about the same". Well enough of me on my soap box.

    Thanks

    It's OK BB... wanted to update my status on here anyways... http://img279.echo.cx/img279/3169/wink5dn.gif
    Thanks for being proud of me. :)


    YEP boys and girls http://img279.echo.cx/img279/5108/yipee7fe.gif3 weeks & 2 days and I haven't slipped ! http://img279.echo.cx/img279/5108/yipee7fe.gif

    It sure is still not easy but has gotten a whole lot better. Soooooo...if I ~ the former chainsmoker can do it - anyone can quit !
    I've come so far, and IF I ever took another puff...just one, I'd be right back to where I was.
    Well I'm f i n i s h e d ! :)

    I think it has partly to do with mikel's reasoning of quiting. ;)
    It sure is tempting to see His benefits of tossing those butts. :D:D:D

    You think my fondness of gentlemen will Now that I smell not as a chimney, garantie me a lifelong line of cuties waiting for me to step outside....?? http://members.shaw.ca/wenpigs/love/serenade.gif

    Well I hope that you are not too disappointed. I am getting older and need all the ego stroking I can get before things start to wear out, fall out and hang out (oops, that does not sound right, now does it!LOL).

    Glad to hear about you sticking with it. Drink Green Tea, its great stuff LOLOL!! :D
