    Well done for getting to day 2 - now you know you CAN get through a day with the evil weed. All you need to do now is not start again!

    Having a little grandchild is a brilliant incentive for stopping - I wanted to quit as soon as my sister had her first child last year. I haven't got kids of my own but I completely adore my sister's little boy - I want to see him grow up, etc.

    You are only in your forties (as I am) so there is plenty of time for your body to recover and for you to live a long and happy life with your grandkid(s). Remember - the cravings are a nuisance but they won't kill you - whereas ciggies more than likely will.

    Read as much information as you can and know as much as you can about your addiction - know your enemy and have some faith in your ability to quit.

    Good luck and post as often as you can:D

  • Hi Marie

    You are sooooo welcome here. We are all quitters and all have our own reasons....yours sounds adorable..:)

    Well done on getting through day one, it really is the toughest day but once it is behind you you are on your way. The days add up quickly and then its weeks and you really will wonder how you have got there.

    There is loads of advice on here and always lots of support, everyone has a wobble (read posts from 20th Oct in all the rooms we were all wavering, there was somehitng in the air that day) you really are never alone.

    The very best of luck Marie, look forward to seeing you in day 3..:D
