You are making me soooo jealous!

I fully believe this same day will come for me when I'm being tempted by liquor. Isn't it amazing how fast a stranger will give you a smoke....they are most generous.

Get back with the program Lys. This is not a big deal........I'm sorry you feel dirty

Just get back on again Lyssie. The temptation of liquor sucks, but I only find that it tempts me in bars still. I haven't gone out to eat yet either, cuz I know I'll want one there.

Just quit agian. If you're ready to do it, you can do it.

How are you doing? I'm plugging right along...smoke-free, week 2.
We haven't touched base in a couple of days. Hope all is well with you.
I'm still on the step 3 patch for 12 or so hours a day, I am not wearing them at night. A few more days, and no more patch

Give me an update when you have a chance

XOXOX

Wise words!! I lost count of how many times I tried to quit.

It's been 4 years now since I quit and I'm beginning to feel real good.


Keep up the good work my bros and sisters!!

Your doing a great job at it Jen!

It sounds as though you have beaten the hardest part.

Even though you will probably be tempted from time to time through lifes ups and downs,you know you can do it,because you have!

After another week or so,you can set your goals from dayly to weekly and keep us informed,from there monthly and so on....

Once off the patches put aside the money you would have spent on the cigarettes and save it,at the end of a year,spoil yourself rotten! e.g Holiday,outfits etc

Because you deserve it.

*runs in late*

I'm here I'm here! I've been sick.


In fact, I still am. I'm still on the wagon though, and on my step #2 patch. I don't really have any cravings, but I am waiting to make sure that isn't just because I haven't encountered enough stress to make me crave a smoke.

I'm actually going to bed now *sorry*.


I just wanted to check in. Jen, I send good vibes to you, and hope that all else is going well for you.


Any dreams?

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Get some sleep, and take care.
I'm glad you are still with me, and smoke free. Big pat on the back

Yes, the dream, it was horrible! I forgot to take the patch off last night. Truly a nightmare

I want one so bad, cuz I'm


S'okay tho because I have bronchitis, so I don't think I can sacrifice that much breath.

Real and DRM suck, but that's another thread, I suppose. Vista isn't compatible *yet*, so I have to not listen to the 400 dollars worth of music I foolishly bought last year from them.

I hope their stock plummets.

Really I'm happy tho. Just not happy with Real, atm.

Jen, sorry you're having bad dreams.
Are you ok?

Send me a u2u if you need to talk.

Already replied.


Thanks for the further encouragement, Jen. It would be much harder doing this without you.

First day...no patches. If things get freaking though....I'll buy another level 3 box. This is a test run no doubt, and 2 weeks on the no smoking band wagon. So far so good, but it's only 8:30 in the morning
Heck I haven't even finished my coffee yet....

How about you Josh? Everything going, are you feeling any better?
XOXOX
Jen

Congrats to all the '07 quitters! Well done, friends!

I remember before I quit I decided to keep a sorta count of how much money I've saved...

604 days not smoking. $2,416 dollars saved so far.

The health benefits are well known, you'll lower your blood pressure, stop poisoning your lungs, have less toxins in your bloodstream, and a whole host of other benefits.

The monetary benefits are sometimes overlooked because you spend this money slowly. $4 a day, whatever... but step back and look at the big picture. I have saved two and a half grand by NOT DOING ANYTHING!

Not bad huh?

The problem is halted though because of engaging to a poisonous drug, forever will the body be poisoned as a burdon to death.

While it may be true that the body has already been poisoned studies do clearly show that the body has a remarkable ability to recover from many different types of damage. Want an example in relation to smoking? Have a smoker take his heart rate (at rest) and then take it again after a week without a cigarette. You'll see exactly what I mean.

True, damage has been done, but use this analogy if it helps you... if you grab a red hot piece of metal and burn yourself, should you keep holding on because you're already burned or should you let go before even more damage is done?

My husband and I both quit smoking quit 16 years ago.

We love being able to breath, to taste and smell things better.

I love that my skin still looks youthful and unlined with a healthy glow instead of sallow and lined.

I am glad that I stopped when I did or I may be dead now (had an undiagnosed congenital heart condition that required surgery in 2000).

I love when I hear about others trying to kick the habit


Way to go and hang in there
