Is anyone else trying to quit smoking? I have decided that I am going to quit and it is going to work this time. My daughter is nearly four and has figured out what smoking is (yes, I know this is my fault). Any time that I go out side (i DO NOT smoke inside) she asks me if im going to smoke and no four year old should even know what smoking is. I have to do this not only for her but for me too. Im looking for someone else that may be trying to quit that wants to be like a support buddy if you will. Also, any advice or support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. :)

That's one of the best gifts you could give your daughter or yourself. No advice, just encouragement. Hang in there mama! You can do it!

i quit 6 months ago cold turkey. the main reason was my boyfriend was with me when i was smoking and he said he didnt like it he hated the smell. so i gave him my pack and said take it i quit. i have a daughter but she never knew. i used to smoke when i would go out or at night and come home and take a shower right after. good luck mama its tough but you'll feel better :)

I am starting to quit as of tonight. I'm not real sure how I am going to accomplish this, but it is looking to be most likely cold turkey. Like you, I do NOT smoke inside, but my 5 & 4 year old know what happens when I go outside. SO has begged and pleaded with me for a while to stop, and we had a long heart to heart about it on our monthly weekend away trip this last weekend. I will be more than happy to be a support buddy for you, if you will for me :) that's what being mom's is all about: "i'll scratch your back, if you'll scratch mine" LOL

I am wanting to quit. I have tried several times. I have only been smoking about 2.5 years. My four year old says the same thing when I go outside too! I want to quit, one time I went about a day without smoking, but I hate that feeling. I just cried and cried for no reason. So I want to quit but I am nervous as to how my depression will be affected. But I need to quit soon though as my fiance and I are going to start TTC next month! I wanted to quit by my wedding, but it is two weeks away! I will be your quit buddy if you want! If anything I can give you encouraging words!

I am trying too.  My dh smokes so that makes it hard but I want to quit mainly for my daughter.  I'd gladly be a support buddy.  Good Luck!
