Good for you! You go girl! I know what it feels like to quit. I've been smoke free for 28 years and I've never been sorry I quit. You will have more energy and generally feel better. GREAT!!! Wow won't it be great not to be ruled by those things! I could go on but you know who has control now....and its YOU!
Kelly, How wonderful! We will all be pulling for you. I have never smoked, but I grew up in a house w/ both parents smoking. My DM decided to quit in April of '69 and never looked back, and that was about 40 yrs of smoking. My DH smoked when we married and for the next 28yrs. He developed HBP after surgery due to Diabetic complications, and that convinced him to stop. He can't even stand the smell of them now. Yeah!!!
Kinda like Home Depot, You can do it, and we can help . Use your 'good stubborn' and your fun sense of humor to help you. I get a kick out of your humor, just so you know. All good wishes in your direction. God bless. Alice.
I wish you the best of luck quitting smoking! I have quit so many times I am a professional!!! I would love to quit for good but I have failed so MANY times I'm gun shy now! How cool it would be to be a non-smoker. Here's wishing you the best!
I keep thinking of quiting also and then "something" happens and I find myself using them as my one true crutch (besides Diet Pepsi).
I've started to pray about it. If anyone (or anything) can help He can! I will quit I just don't know when. Kudo's to you for taking the steps to help yourself.
Yay Kelly!!! Good for you. You can do it.
