    and many more to come!!!! [​IMG] I have been a nasty smoker for over 20 years. I have also tried everything I could find to quit and nothing has worked. I decided, however, that yesterday was the day. I took the "chicken" route and finished what I had, but early yesterday I ran out. This is the easiest time I have had yet staying away from them. I even went to the store to buy gas for the mower and didn't get any. I am pretty proud of myself right now and just wanted to give myself a quick pat on the back. Wish me luck, I am sure I will need it in the upcoming days!!!!!

    Great way to do it- One day at a time. Just think to yourself, I can make it through this minute, this hour, this day, step by step. Willpower and determination. Congratulations on beginning the struggle. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    Thanks guys!!! I really feel like I can this time!!! I am watching the father of one of my oldest son's friends (she is 10) die of lung cancer right now and I don't ever want to be there. I want to see my babies grow up long before I am gone.

    Yes, one baby step at a time!

    Good job!! I had tried to quit and did quit for two years once but went right back to it. Then an intimdating dr. threatened me sort of...long story but he scared me enough that I got it into my head to quit and did and that was about ten years ago and have no desire to smell like nicotine nor have that taste in my mouth anymore. It was very easy for me at that time too. I think the old timers say it has something to do with the stages of the moon? Like in potty training or planting a garden? What ever...it worked and it will work for you. We are all here for you.

    Congratulations on your decision to quit. I think it is great and good luck. Stay Strong with your beliefs. This could be a very difficult time but the end result will be the best. Please keep us posted as we are behind you on this journey. It is truly difficult to sit and watch someone else die in that manner. [​IMG]

    Great!!! Let's do it together!! I was planning on quitting after finals (2 weeks), and it would be great to have a "buddy" to quit with!!

    That's wonderful, I'm very proud of you!!!

    Thanks to all of you! I really appreciate all the support! It means a LOT!!!!

    Good job [​IMG]
    when i was 15 i had to watch my dad die of throat cancer. I saw a 6ft tall muscular man wither away to 90lbs and begging me to get his gun and bring it to the hospital. (he died the next day)
    I can never forget the smells the last few weeks.
    Now i just have to get George to quit
