My Quit:
I smoked since I was 14 years old.

I met a lady whose father was dying of cancer after smoking for 30 years. I watched her hold his hand as he gasped and panted, desperate for a breath. I saw the pain in her eyes. I realized should that be my fate after 30 years of smoking, my kids would be only 8, 10 and 15 years old. There was NO way in hell I would make them endure that if I could help it - NO WAY.

QuitNet has helped me by letting me lean on others who have been there and done it before, during those first few painful months. As I grew stronger and more comfortable I was blessed to be able to help others along this road and let THEM lean on ME :o)

Dig deep. No one said this was going to be easy, but it doesnt, I PROMISE, it doesn't last forever- as long as you dont feed the beast.

photoKeep a "quit" journal and make an entry every day. It will help you stay focused on your goal, and writing down your feelings can help you through rough times.
