  • Tomorrow is my quit date. I'm 6 weeks and found out last week. I'm using a patch but only for a few days, then I'll go cold turkey. The patch is way less harmful then smoke so anything to quit is more helpful then harmful. If you want a buddy then let me know, I can be here for you :)
    Smoking can cause so many defaults including miscarrying, deformities and more. It just isnt worth it.
    I smoked for 8 years, been smoking a pack or more a day. Tonight is the last time I will light up. What we are doing is similar to putting a cigarette in a baby's mouth. Its like having a really slow abortion or similar to abusing our baby.
    Like I said, msg me if you want to buddy up. How many weeks are you?

  • honestly i bought one pack of cigarettes, my favs and hid them in our car from my DH, somewhere he would never look and when i ran errands by myself i would have just one, half on the way there and half on the way back. i think it worked for me because i normally never run errands by myself. but good luck and congrats!
