yep those drugs are your friend, morphine, mmmm, morphine! LOL!!!
you will be fine, we are all thinkign of you
i know how hard quitting smoking is, but it will get better. this helped me, i took a shirt that i hadn't washed since i quit smoking, and i carried it around, and when i wanted to smoke i smelled that shirt and realized how awful it was to always smell like smoke.

Hopestar, good luck!

You know, you'll probably heal much better and faster with not smoking! That's one good thing with not smoking.

Hopestar- Quitting smoking is easy. I've done it a hundred times, lol!!! I'm actually smoking a butt as I'm typing this. I know.......I'm stupid! But, I don't drink alcohol, don't cheat on my taxes or my wife, and I eat all my vegetables. I figure I'm entitled to at least one vice. Seriously though, I bought Nicorette losenges(sp) today, and I'm planning on quitting next week. Good luck with the surgery! You'll be fine!
