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)

Advice:
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.

Quitticism
Three Post Rule
If you think you're going to relapse, post a Help! message in the QS forum. Wait until you have at least three responses. If you still want to suck on a death stick after that... wait for three more.

photoI thought it would be harder to eat healthier, exercise, and drop caffeine at the same time as I quit smoking, but now I have more reasons to keep my quit!
