One day at a time!!!  You are not only doing something great for you, but you are also doing something great for Fiance – by keeping yourself healthy!  Does Fiance smoke?  Hopefully he can help you with it!

I am so proud of you! My grandfather died from pulmonary fibrosis, which was cause by his smoking. Not cool. That being said, you will probably have a weak moment and that’s totally expected! Just make sure you log why and how you felt like you needed a cig… it will make you more accountable to yourself!

That’s awesome!  I hope you can get rid of smoking once and for all!  You’ll be much better off without cigarettes!

You sound like you are ready to quit, which is the most important thing. I started smoking when I was about 15 and I quit a few times for 1 year and then I would start up again. I was a very social smoker. My Fiance and I decided to quit in 06, but it took 3 tries and we finally quit August of 06.

Here are my tips:

drink a TON of water. As in, a gallon a day. It will help flush the nicotine out. Afte 3 days the cravings calm way down.

Have some Red Vines or straws handy to chew on. For some reason, this helped me.

Be kind to yourself. For some reason, when you quit smoking, it feels like you’ve lost a friend. Wierd but true.

You will be so happy you quit. I never saw it as that big a deal until I quit. There are so many benefits to quitting. Your sense of taste and smell come back. Your breath. Your clothes don’t smell like smoke. The money. Whiter teeth. Don’t need to step out at dinner or drinks with friends to smoke. I know you know all this, but it helps to remind yourself of it all.

Congratulations on quitting and feel fre to PM me if you get frustrated or need to vent.

Yeah, girl!!! That is so so SO great! Wishing you the best of luck. I’m sure it’s going to be incredibly hard, but just think of how much you, your Fiance, and your future children (if you’re planning on having any) are going to benefit from this.

Good luck! I think you’re going to feel so much better when you’ve fully kicked it that you won’t miss it anymore. 😉

Good luck! My parnets can’t seem to quit smoking and it drives me bonkers! If you reallky need the help, mom was able to quit on Chantix, no problem, but went back because “she missed smoking”, not b/c of the nicotene! So, keep some hard candy around for your flavor craves =]

I’m so happy for you! 

I quit a year ago, January. I’m so happy I did. Like you, I’d smoked since I was 14. It’s weird, of all the reasons to quit, what I was most worried about was smoking in my wedding dress. It just seemed… gross to me. 

Almost all of my friends smoke too, and we always went to smoking bars. I seriously had to change my whole life because I quit smoking. It’s a lifestyle. You don’t just quit the actual act of smoking, you quit the smokers lifestyle. 

I didn’t realize how crummy I felt until I stopped. And I’m constantly amazed at how great my hair smells! Who knew?!? 🙂 

I’m not going to wish you luck, because you don’t need luck. You just need determination. So, I wish you determination in abundance.

Good luck good luck! I attempted quitting a while ago … the worst part? I started again when I got bored on vacation (which I spent at home with no car). That’s right … boredom = smoking again. It sucks … majorly because I definitely felt better when I wasn’t smoking!
