Smoking *yeah right*

Hello, I'm new. :) I'm a 25 years old woman from the netherlands and I've smoked for about 5/6 years and yesterday I quit. The reasons... because both my parents died of lunc cancer and I have asthma. But you know... knowing you should quit is easy, doing it is another.

I quit once seriously for 4 months then I broke and started smoking again. The last 2 years I've been battling on smoking/quiting and the last months I've accepted I was a smoker and now I'm ready to just not smoke. :rolleyes:

I use patches though.:p

  • Welcome Lyne -I'm so sorry to hear about your parents.

    Do this quit for yourself but always remember them as your inspiration.

    I'm sure you'll do great this time

    xx:)

  • Welcome Lyne, I'm so glad when someone else joins the forum and quits :)

    Your reasons are so very significant honey, I'm sure your parents would be touched and really proud of you. Stick to your decision and make it last forever, I can assure it's so less stressful than obesssing over smoking/quitting - something I know too well since it's what I've done for the past I guess 3 years at least, before finding the sudden inspiration to quit. I am a much more relaxed person now ;)

    Enjoy your quit because it's towards freedom!
