10 days!

Today ( the 14 th) is my 10th day smoke free! COLD TURKEY. Never thought I'd last this long. I know I can do it this time. Still having alot of breathing problems, especially in the afternoon/evening. But ribs don't hurt quite as bad when I have a coughing fit now. Hoping every day gets better. If u are struggling like me just to make it one more day let me be your cheerleader. We CAN do THIS!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE,!

nope nope nope! NOT ONE PUFF EVER! Thanks for the encouraging words. It's hard when those around u complain about the coughing and say they'd wish I just smoke a cig and forget quitting if its gonna make me cough like I do. But I'm determined to get through this bad stage and live a healthier life with the ability to take a deep breath! Have a wonderful day!

Hi Cindi - Well Done on your 14 days quit :) :)

I know it is bad enough having to fight the withdrawal symptoms without having

to deal with the negative comments from family etc, which is why this site is so important to those trying to quit and stay quit. The understanding and support found here far outweighs the negative stuff. :) :)

My only secret is I cut out sweets (except jello lol) cause sweets made me want a cig after to cut the sweet taste in my mouth and I've been walking because it has helped my cough be more productive and helped me to breathe deeper. I thought I'd gain weight too. That's one excuse I always used for not quitting cause I'm already a big girl lol
