bushg, that was a perfect post.
Thank you for sharing your story with us and for giving us the tips that helped you stop. It was definitely helpful.
I am using the patch as well.
Allheart, thanks for the cheer! And they're not fallen on their bums LOL it was perfect and brought a smile and a giggle to me today.
You made that up yourself, didn't you? Thats awesome LOL!
Start, This will be the 3rd time quiting for me as well.
The first time was when I was pregnant with my daughter.
I was grumpy for a few days, and probably thought about smoking for a couple months after,
but don't remember it being that big of a deal.
Then a few months after she was born, we had a few smoking friends over
and a few wine coolers and that was it for me, hooked again.
Then when I was pregnant with my son, I was disciplined enough to
smoke very little and wean off them in the first 2 months
but once again went back to it.
I think it's harder each time around, much, much, much harder.
I'm not saying this to scare you, I'm just saying it because I'm imagining,
if I were to ever start back again, what the next time would be like
when this time is pure hell.
If you can keep in mind that, then there is hope not to start back again.
I don't want to be a smoker till the day I die.
Noticing that it gets harder and harder is a good enough reason for me to quit for good. I don't particularly like torturing myself LOL
And don't ever want to go through this again.
I think I'm old enough and mature enough to realize that now LOL.
Stringer I wish you the best of luck come Tuesday.
Have you tried quiting before?
oh and, I had to go buy step 2 patches, so once again the game plan changed.
