Cigarettes are EVIL!!!!

I WANT to quit so badly, i just can't. I've tried patches, gum, Chantix, and cold turkey and nothing helps. I do NOT like the person that i become when i haven't had a cigarette. I am impatient, emotional, and a downright bitch. I wish that i could take a 2 week vacation ALONE on a beautiful beach somewhere ALL ALONE with no cigs..that way i don't have as much stress or anyone around me to take out my cravings on. I hear that is all it really takes is 2 full weeks nicotine free, but i can't even make it 2 damn hours!

I know in my mind that i need to quit for my children and my health and my wallet, but regardless of these very important reasons i still cannot put them down! I've been a smoker for about 10 years now. I wish i could travel back in time and say NO. NO, NO, and HELL NO.

End rant

I know exactly how you feel.  Today is day 19 without a cigarette, and i broke down and cried yesterday.  Still havent smoked, but i feel so bad because I feel like im taking my anger out on my daughter sometimes... i dont play with her as much as i used to.  My sense of humor is gone! I hate the person I am right now, but trying my best to just stay strong and get through it.  I really hope I start turning back to my old self.  I know that it's hard.  Just try your best!!! Thats all you can do!

You CAN do it. It's mind over matter. When you want it bad enough you'll do it. I quit last November after nearly 25 years of a pack a day habit.

This......Week 4 was the hardest for me, and I ended up giving in.

See if someone will take your children for 2 weeks.  It sounds horrible but it gives you that motivation you need.  If you haven't quit smoking, you don't get your kids back.  And you're not taking it out on them.

Everyone else around you?  Just explain that you are quitting so you're sorry in advance for any outbursts and hurt feelings.

I quit for four years then started up again about a month ago because I was so stressed out. I hate it...

This! Do you have any trusted family that would do this? I know it seems extreme, but it's two weeks away for your heatlh, and your babies health! I am also a smoker and I hate myself for it, I wish I could do this.
