I just had to share the news, b/c I feel like this is huge! On the 16th of March, I stated cutting back, from a pack (at the least), down to 9, then each day tried to cut back alittle more then finally on the 22nd of March, I didn't smoke any.
It's hard not to just grab one and smoke it with my coffee... But I'm making it. lol

Congratulations!! DH and I are working on quitting, too. It is NOT EASY!! Last week we went 4 days with no smokes, then just bought one pack...ugh, now I'm off the wagon again. But I'm not giving up!!
I'm so proud of you, this is SO HARD!!

Quitting together was the only way we could do it...otherwise there would be cigs around and we'd surely fail. So far we've been nice to each other...we just remind ourselves how much money we'll save!! LOL! It's super scary how easy it is to pick it back up, but we shall overcome, right?!
Great job to you and good luck keeping it up!

I'm really proud of you. I quit cold turkey 6 years ago so that I could have healthy pregnancies and once I saw my babies I swore to myself I would never smoke again. I can honestly say I've only had one craving in all that time, knock on wood.

Good luck to you! It's such a wonderful accomplishment.

That's great news Tinabug. I have been trying for the last two years. Haven't done it yet. I can do for a few days sometimes without one at all and then i have to have a few. I hope to be smoke free in the next couple of months.

Good for you!!! Your on your way to a better life, tinabug!!!
I quit after I met my DH and learning about what he had to go thru with his mom's death due to cancer. I didn't want my kids to go thru that. Then after seeing my grandpa lose his battle with throat cancer, that pretty much sealed the deal.

Wishing you the best of luck..... thumbs_up.gif

Good for you! That is a big accomplishment! And I'm sure if you're having trouble with cravings, you could post on here and we'd all try to help steer you back on track. (After all, we should be craving frosting and cookies, right?) thumbs_up.gif
