Hello all you people out there, I'm new and I haven't quit and I don't want to but I WANT TO!!!
I just turned 41 and have smoked for 25 years. I absolutely hate being a slave to smokes but boy how I love smoking! I've decided to give quitting another go for myself but also for my kids. I always go outside and hide from them to have a smoke so I don't think they know but my oldest is 7 and she's becoming very aware of those types of things. So, I don't want to give her the business of "don't do what mommy does".
Anyway, my husband smokes and doesn't plan on quitting and it sure is hard not to smoke when I know he has them but I would like to not kill myself early if possible since this life is already so short and this is one big step to extending my time here. I will say that I think the hardest challenge that I will face is changing my habits. Smoking is so much part of my routine.
So, I plan on starting tomorrow (and just writing that makes me want a smoke!!!). I probably won't be a big poster but I really appreciate all of you putting yourselves out there and being available for support...it makes a huge difference to many, many people...wish me luck!
