changing quit date

Posted by constanceclum Jan 26, 2014

I am looking for feedback about this. I changed my quit date to 2/1/14. I am reading Allen Carrs book as well as doing quit smoking online-both reccommend you complete before you actually quit. I want to make sure I'm not kidding myself about putting it off. I've still cat down to 6 cigs a day.


3 days to quit day

I am looking forward to being rid of the cancer sticks once and for all. I am so grateful to be able to look at this site everyday for inspiration and making new friends. The feedback has been wonderful. My husband smokes but I am determined to quit in spite of him. I managed to quit drinking through AA even though he still drinks and there is always beer in my house. Anyway, wishing everyone a terrific day


Hoping to get healthy

I am still hanging in there with smoking about 6 cigs a day. My quit date is next Mon and because of this site I am actually looking forward to it. I am realistic though and after smoking for 42 years I am not kidding myself about the severity of withdrawals. I know the patches will help and I plan to go to the library tomorrow to get Allen Carr's book that has been so highly reccommended on this site. Got to close for now but looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow


want to get healthy

Posted by constanceclum Jan 17, 2014

I am spending this 2 weeks prior to my quit date cutting back to less than 1/2 pack a day and it isn't that hard. I have copd which makes me short of breath even with walking. I am looking forward to meeting people and getting support from become an ex. I am 55 years old and have 42 years  of being a heavy smoker in spite of having a history as an R.N. I have 4 sons who all smoke and I want to be a good example to them and let them know it is possible to quit. My husband smokes which makes it a challenge but I am still feeling confident. Anyway I expect to be here at least a couple of times a day checking out people, blogs and groups and I am so grateful
