Today is day 23. These past few days have been a little weird because I have been sleepy. I come back from work and I just feel like going to bed at 6 o'clock in the evening, don't feel like doing anything other than just lie there...I have also had some urges but I kept my cool :) Is this a normal thing? It has been 3 weeks.
This won't be easy .I have smoked for 35 years but im determined to do this .this is my first time to try quiting and my last
I'm 3 days in and crave a smoke but I'm saying to myself I don't need a smoke and having a piece of gum

Being a 10 a day smoker for 40 years, I'm really proud of myself for holding on for 26 days now. As we all know it is a struggle especially smoking for that long. But holding on with patches of course. What has motivated me... family and money. Family... want to be around if grandkids come along. Money... saved $420 so far (that's crazy). Keep going guys and we'll get through this.
And thanks fo...
Not one for many words,
However after many times trying to convince myself to quit, the straw the broke the camels back was seeing my not yet 2 year old pick up my ciggies and putting in mouth, and then when I saw her she said daddy, with a lighter in her hand. The cigarettes and lighter where in the bedroom, away from where she was meant to be.
That was the moment that I needed to understand h...

It’s just not worth it!
On Friday morning 7/6, I woke up with severe pains to the right side of my chest and back it’s all a very long story but I’m actually being treated in a clinic with depression, the result of my wife trying to commit suicide 7 weeks ago!
I couldn’t get the vision out of my head so I went to the bottle in an attempt to block it out. After 4 weeks my situation declined imme...
this is day 81 for me. I have been told by my surgeon he would not operate on my back unless I stopped smoking for at least 3 months. This was the final push I needed to stay committed. My grandchildren have been constantly telling me about the black lungs I will have and to please "no more cigaretting gran". I really want to do this and your stories have helped me tremendously.
