My Quit:
I tried smoking at 13 and never stopped, not even when I was pregnant.

I always said I would quit before I was thirty. Around age 33 I had a huge awakening of my soul and realized that I wanted to live!! I knew health and long life were not going to be mine if I continued to smoke.

I quit the first time for 4 1/2 yrs, with the patch. It was one of the hardest things I'd ever done. You should have seen the way I carried on, crying and everything like I had lost my best friend. But I got through it. Then, because of stress in my life, I started smoking again. How stupid could I be?

So, here I am 2 1/2 yrs later. Easier this time because I knew what to expect and also because I have the Q this time around.

It gets easier and easier with time. Just don't ever give in to that urge to try 'just one'. You know you can't!!

photoDon't tell youself that you are quitting forever. Just say "I won't smoke today." Say that every day.
