Chin up and hang on tight even though quitting smoking is EXTREMELY difficult to say the least, it's also very doable and absolutely worth it to be free!

I believe most of us in the first few days of quitting smoking never thought that we could actually quit and remain quit but hey if you are new here and struggling to be free from the clutches of the dreaded cancer sticks, you can be free too, be willing, determined and totally committed to succeed and you can and will be successful but you must believe in yourself and you must want it more than anything else in life and your life depends on you because we all know the dangers of continuing to smoke, yes it's horribly addictive and yes it's EXtremely difficult to relearn life without the crutch but it's also very doable. Everyone's quit is different but we all had our roller coaster ups and downs and mood swings , I smoked for 40 yrs and thought I was invincible to the health issues of smoking but I was wrong and after finding out I have copd I decided to stop playing Russian Roulette with my life, I found this site and did alot of reading here, picked a quit date and wasn't ready so I reset it and totally forgot about it until my 18th day of my quit. I felt like I was crawling out of my skin when I remembered and came on line, I had been lurking in the shadows but I finally commented on someone's blog and I believe it was Moody that suggested that I write a blog and whew luckily I did because I really don't know if I would've made it through the day but this quit was and still is the most important thing in my life because I want to be around for awhile and I want my quality of life to be the best it can be and quitting smoking is one way to try and ensure that I hopefully will be around for quite some time and going to bed each evening smiling because  (Yay another day is WON)
