My Quit:
When I quit, the thought of going ONE DAY smoke-free scared me. I couldn't imagine my life without cigarettes. I tried to remember what it was like to not feel full after eating and needing a smoke, or what it was like to drive and not smoke...or what I did when I was bored....or drinking. How was I going to make it, if I couldn't even remember what it was like to not smoke? That's when I started getting sick. I started developing a problem with my tonsils swelling up, and I would be sick for about a week. Each time I would tell myself I was going to quit. I got sick again. This time though, I woke up not being able to breathe because my throat was so swollen. I promised myself I would take it one day at a time. It has been 3 months today!

You may want a smoke every day, but say "I'm not going to smoke for just today." You must have faith in yourself as well.

Frequently Asked Question
Q: My family's hounding me about quitting, but I'm not sure I want to? answer
Celery is Under the Left Rear Tire
A secret code which would notify the HTBC (if it existed, which it doesn't) that a Qmember had finally snapped and done in a cow-orker, authority figure, etc. The non-existent HTBC would then dispose of the evidence. Not that it has ever done so. See also: Cow-Orker, HTBC.

photoPut your quit first; worry about weight, the fidgeting, and irritability second.... Protect your quit. Defend it. Nurture it. Everything else will fall into place.
