I noticed today when my 9 year old says to me gosh mom you sure do yell a lot lately. So I ask my husband about it and he says yes it has started since you quit smoking. No one wanted to say anything because I might start smoking again. I used to never yell, I still can't believe that this is something I have been doing. I know it is not a reason to start smoking but my junkie mind is loving to tell me otherwise. I do however need to get this issue... Read full postComments (4)

So I've almost made it 100 days smoke free. To all of you who are just starting out please know that it is worth everything that you are going through!!! I do still have bad days and prob eat more than I should, but I feel so much better. My family and friends are so proud of me, I AM SO PROUD OF ME.
I do have to say it has been hard the last 2 weeks or so but I am finally starting to feel better. Staying quit is going to be a lifelong... Read full postComments (10)

Today I took one of those silly health assessments they make you take at work. The first question was the same as always " DO YOU USE TOBACCO?' ....and for the first time in my entire life I said "NO"
I started smoking at 13 so by the time i filled out my own forms I was already at a pack a day....this was one of the greatest feelings I have ever felt. I can't wait to answer no again!!

THANK YOU ALL MUCH!! I really though I was going to smoke, even when I woke up this morning, it was the first thought I had. I DID NOT SMOKE, and after that first urge this morning, I really do feel better, stronger and that is all beacuse of my friends on this site. I know I would have smoked if it had not been for you guys!! I am so glad I do not have to restart my quit, I would have felt so bad about self. the fear of guilt was the only thing keeping me from... Read full postComments (5)

So I spent my entire Christmas with a ton of smokers. The worst part is they had all been so supportive until yesterday, it's Christmas you quit is your problem they said. I get to treat myself and smoke as many cig as I want where I want they said more than once. It was only 55 short days ago that extra cigs because FILL IN THE BLANK was my idea of a celebration....and now I know that is just an excuse to have a day where you never have any withdrawls from the...

I think family is the curse of all ex-smokers. No matter how well you are doing in your quit family can have you feeling like you are back on day 3 in seconds =)
I will stay strong I will not smoke today and tomorrow will be better.Comments (4)

I have not wriiten in over a week...WHY you ask?!?!?!?
I feel so good, I go hours and hours without thinking of smoking in any way!! It is the most wonderful feeling I have ever experienced in my life =) It almost happened overnight, one day it was all I could think about, the next day it was almost 2 in the afternoon before I thought smoking. That one thought was fleeting at best. I'm just living my life, I still have bad days and good days, but I don't need... Read full postComments (5)

So I'm just a little over a month into my quit and I have to be honest this is the hardest thing I ever done. I have never made it this far before without smoking and it is hard work. I still have to remind my self everyday of the reasons why I quit, that it is not a cigarette I want but that I just want the cravings to stop, that no I can NOT just have one. The time and energy it takes to re-train your mind is a unbelievable. I always though the... Read full postComments (7)

I have done it I have made it 1 MONTH. I just want to thank everyone here; there is no way I could have made it this far without you guys (especially yesterday). Everyday your stories and encouragement inspire me.
I will say they #1 one thing I have learned to help me keep MY QUIT is attitude is everything! You can not doubt yourself, you have to get yourself away from all those negative thoughts you impose upon yourself.
