My Reason

Hi there I'm new and my quit day is tomorrow so I have just had my last smoke.

I have given up before in May 2005. My husband and I wanted to start trying for a baby so I gave up before we started. Two months later and I concived. I was smoke free for 18 months when I finished breast feeding, I started drinking again and with that I felt I needed to smoke too.

My little girl is 3 now and today she said "when I'm bigger I can have one of those" meaning a cigerette. I was heart broken, I don't want her to grow up thinking its ok to smoke so the only way to do that is for me to stop. I've done it before I can do it again!

Roll on tomorrow!

Thanks for reading

  • Its a powerful reason to quit. Its also a major reason why i'm quitting, my 2 year old daughter was paying to much attention to me stood out the back while was feeding the addiction so to speak.

    I didn't want her asking them questions later, so i decided that this along with the health and money reasons were my 3 strongest reasons to quit them.

    My last remaining reason is probably the one thats beat me up the most over the years... i am strong willed, i like to think i can beat anything if i put my mind to it and that includes this. I've fell a few times off this 'ere horse, but you know? i'm one stubborn git :). Somethings totally clicked in my mind this time around, folk have already told me they believe that i'm in this for the win this time.. and I believe they may be right.

    Even if we don't always do it just for ourselves, lets do it for our kids eh!

    best of luck, please do keep in touch on these forums. Some pretty decent folk around here too ;)

  • well done, both of you.

    night night

  • One of the biggest bonuses i'm finding now even at 5 weeks in, is that I am not getting out of breath playing chase with my daughter now.. she absolutely loves to be chased up n down the hall, and where i used to always get tired really quick when she still wanted to play on, now i have bags more energy.

    Thats helped my sense of well being alot, i adore my daughter and want her to have as much fun as possible so its great to be able to play a much bigger part in the fun games now :)

    The Wii sports game on the Nintendo Wii is alot of fun too, finally been able to play that properly too.

  • Hi Jase :D

    5 weeks is great Huge Hug for you

    Enjoy your lovely daughter they grow up far to quickly

    My kids are all adults now but I can enjoy playing with my grandchildren now

    Love
