this is going to be mine & hubby's new years resolution. though it seems it would be easier for me with hubby quitting along with me, it won't be. hubby can stop right now if he wanted to, he's not as addicted as i am nor does he smoke as much as i do. i smoke a little less than a pack a day.
the thing is i dont really want to quit. but i know i need to for my children. i want to be around for them as long as possible, and i know quitting will up my chances of that. i actually enjoy smoking though, and its also partly a social thing for me. nearly all of my friends and my parents smoke, when im around them we smoke together while we chit-chat. and also, its how i wake up in the morning. my morning routine consists of making a cup of coffee, going outside and having a cigarette before i do anything at all. i get up early before anyone else to ensure this, those few moments are how i get my daily peace. i have atleast 4 within the first hour and a half im awake. i really dont know how im going to "re-train" myself to not have those morning cigarettes.
after having each of my kids, i told myself id quit but i always started back up. now i know i need to get serious about it. ive been smoking for about 8 years.
so if you smoked for a long period of time and havent touched one in a while, how did you overcome those first few weeks of cravings? i dont want to try and gum, patches or pills. i want to go "all natural" lol
