Just wanted to post a thank you to all on forum. I have been reading for past 17 days and it has helped me so much. Tomorrow at 2:30 pm I will start my 4th week of my quit. I always put off quitting because everyone said it was so hard and they usually went back to smoking. I smoked for 35 years, 1 to 2 packs a day. Decided to quit. After all, one of my biggest fears was failure, and I figure if I fail, I'll just try again. Well, so far, this has not been so hard. Just have to take it a day at a time. Cravings are almost completely gone and the ones I do have last no more than a few seconds. I quit CT. Couldn't see putting nicotine in when that was the point of quitting (getting nicotine free). I'm still waiting for the hard part of quitting, which I'm sure will come when I least expect it, but I don't want to smoke anymore and I don't feel the need to smoke anymore. Still have my list of pros and cons to quitting on the frig to re-read when needed (there really were not any cons, just fears). And I can read in the forum anytime I feel I need support! Again thank you everyone for sharing your quit.
Quit date: Jan. 18, 2009
