congrats!  good fo you!

yes.  i have smoked on and off for years... BUT i was always a secret smoker. like.. never smoked anywhere but in the dark hidden corner of my back yard lol.  i never smoked very much.. maybe 5-7 at most in a day.  
if you can get to 2 months you can DO IT all the way..FOREVER.  its all mental now.  you just have to stay strong and not think "oh ... i can have just a couple here and there" stay fully quit.  i wont say that having one while out drinking will lead to starting back up.. BUT i do know that for me personally.. buying a pack with the intent to just smoke one cause i am super stressed ALWAYS leads to starting back up.
 

Quoting LuvsHopesDreams:

It's been two months for me, too. I hope I can stay quit after the baby's born. Were you the only smoker in your home?

Quoting Its.me.Sam.:

recent quitter here lol ..its been 2 months.

Thanks for your encouragement. I can't imagine what it must be like to hide your smoking all the time. No one knew??? I haven't done that since I was a teen hiding it from my parents. I was at a pack a day when I found out I was pregnant. My husband smokes, so when I've gotten stressed it's been a challenge. Thanks again, and congrats--you're doing great!!!

my husband knew of course.  and my oldest kid (she is 20), but not my youngest ... and my dad knew - but never saw me.  other than that.. secet lol.  i never smoked when out - even if i was out all day.  i would publicly smoke one or two if it was a party atmostphere but that was only if someone i knew was and i could bum a cig off of them lol.

i cant imagine trying to quit if someone else was smoking.  ugh.. too much temptation and you have made it aleadt to a couple of months .. thats AWESOME!.  does he want to quit?

No, he's been pretty good about going outside and keeping it away from me. But we've never smoked in the house, so I KNOW what he's doing (and we always went out on the back deck after we put our son to bed--it was kind of our time to talk and relax together-and, of course, smoke). That's why I'm a little nervous about how I'll do after our girl is born. I just have to keep focused. I bet your hubby and daughter are thrilled you quit.

My husband is a smoker..i have one every now and then and really enjoy it... With a nice coffee or girls chit-chat. It can be real pleasure if u are not dependent upon it.

I do. Not inside anything. Only outside. I do need to either try to quit or go to e-cigs. It's really much too expensive for my budget.
