Not a smoker myself, but I wonder if maybe you’ll be so busy doing other things that you won’t really think about it? Kind of like people who don’t get a chance to eat and don’t really notice.

Maybe just take it how it comes, and don’t beat yourself up if you feel the need for some nicotine. Ask your photographer not to snap any pictures of you in the act though ๐Ÿ˜›

I intend on getting a nicotine patch for that day. Either that, or I’ve been considering the electronic cigarettes that are on the shelves. They are odorless and one puff equals one cigarrette (speaking in nicotine terms). Basically, the cartridges that go in them is nothing but nicotine, so you’re leaving out all the other horrible indgredients that they add to our lovely little habits. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I HAVE heard some controversy on those electronic ones though, so I need to do a little more research before I chose a method to go with that day.  I wish you luck!

That is how it is for me too, the actual act of smoking that I feel like I ‘need’ to be doing. I have a sneaking suspicion, though, that we will be a bit busy and just may forget our cravings…at least til dinner is over anyways (thats when I crave the WORST!). ๐Ÿ˜‰

@misshelleez–I have heard similar reviews from some others that have used it to quit. I’m not quite ready to quit (as much as I’d love to…your heart SO has to be in it, to be sucessful), but think I will definately have to give it a whirl when the ‘quit time’ comes.

 

@vicarswifeintraining-I totally understand your point. Oh boy. Now I’m nervous. Watch, I’ll be sneaking up to a friends hotel just to steal a drag or two. Lol! I see your getting married shortly after me, I will have to let you know how it all worked out for me!

Of course my health is my top reason for quitting, but I, too don’t want to be seen or smell of smoke on our wedding day.  I’m an on/off smoker (more on than off) and stress and alcohol are my big triggers.  I’m on day 4 without smoking and hope to keep the stress levels down and avoid drinks for a while so that I don’t fall off the wagon.  HA…both are really tough when our wedding is less than 3 months away!  My advice to the OP is if the need strikes you and you have an opportunity to sneak a puff here and there than do it.  Otherwise you’ll be driving yourself nuts thinking about it and not enjoy your day.  You sound like me because I always have tic-tacs and hand sanitizer in my purse!!

I am not a smoker, but I am really sensitive to smoke, so I would recommend doing a patch or electronic cig once you are in your dress, if you can.  For me, smoke gets everywhere, not just places where brushing your teeth or dowing tic tacs can help… so you probably don’t want your dress and hair to smell, right?

I used my electronic cigarette. No smell, no smoke – just nicotine! I love it! I use it anywhere I am not allowed to smoke – dining out, stadiums, concerts, even in my office when it is too cold to go outside. I use nJOY.

I’m in the process of quitting!  It would have been a little over one week if I hadn’t fallen off the wagon last weekend (I’m considdering myself to be on day 3 now).  I have cheated a couple times, but I tell you what…the thing that keeps me from smoking is physical activity.  Everytime I crave a cigarette I do something physical like go for a walk.  Even at work, I will stand up and do squats or something.  Thinking about how great it feels to be able to get my blood flowing and lungs working again is what keeps me quitting.

I was really concerned about the photographer getting pics of me puffing on a smoke and decided to quit.  That and I am really out of shape (think no physical activity for 6 years…yikes!).  I couldn’t work out and smoke at the same time, so I gave it up.

I decided to quit for our wedding, but I hope to stay quit forever.  Only smoking a couple times on the wedding day wouldn’t work for me either, I’m a stress smoker (among my other triggers!) so I’d be smoking all day, every half hour I’m sure.  I might as well cut it completely out.
