Anyone else in the process of quitting smoking?

Today is day 1 for me. I am going cold turkey and don't plan on picking another one up ever. I guess it pays to be hard headed.

  • Good luck, I am on Chantix and getting off of my cigs. a little at a time. In 2 weeks I have gone from 2 pack aday to 1 so I am slowly cutting down. I can not just stop, when I start thinking about it my stomach ties up in knots and I get so nervous. Good luck again, I hope you are able to give them up

  • I have been doing the cold turkey bit since January 1st. It's actually not going too badly although my husband says I've been cranky....I say I wouldn't be cranky if he'd get off his butt and do stuff around the house but whatever! If you're a mom, have a look at these links. They are my reminders as to why I'm doing this...that and my 18 month old twins.

    I look at the pictures of Barb with her child and just want to cry. I can't imagine missing out on my children's lives because I wanted to smoke.

    Hang in there!
