    Emma you have just hit the nail on the head there it's exactly what i use to think before i quit Well done Emma i really really hope your quit goes nice and easy for you and you finally quit this evil crap that we used to shove in our mouths :)

    I do feel so guilty about that and thats what makes me want to stop.. if i cant do it for my little boy, who can i do it for??!!!

  • Oh nicely put there Emma.

    I can tell you 100% from a dads point of view, i quit with my daugther being well up there on my list of reasons. She ran me ragged, always had far more energy than i did, and i wanted to be able to run more than i did in the park without gasping for breath and sparking up another smoke.

    Well 3 months later, alot has changed, we've had much longer walks, trips to the park are much more fun for both of us now, and as for chasing her round the house.. :)... well needless to say you get alot of the much needed energy back quite early in the quit, and you really do see some of the benefits much sooner than you expect..

    It'll happen, but you must work at it.. and your little boy will love you all the more for having done this. It makes such a difference.. and once you got it like this, you won't want to give it up either.

    Good for you! :)

  • Thank you Jase..... When i take him to nursery i get on the bus, its quite far any way but even walking to the bus stpo leaves me out off breath :eek: i think to my self... god im 25 not 52 why am i doing this :confused::confused:

    Makes you think about quitting so much more when you have children !

  • Well if we are honest, smoking is a very selfish thing anyway.. when you got a kid you have to consider more than just yourself. Quitting is the only sensible option. we can moan as much as we like about how we may have 'liked' smoking, but when you really read up about the addiction properly, you actually get to see that you've been a fool to believe such lies for many years.

    So to quit for your kids is a strong reason. You want to be there for them.. and lets face it, why the hell become a statistic to the smoking related death just because you couldn't endure just a bit of irritability or mood in so short a space of time.

    Compared to a lifetime of feeling much more exhilierated, with more energy, more money and no crazy 4000+ poisons being taken in 20 times a day.. i think its a no-brainer to realise quitting smoking is the only right move to make.
