My Quit:
I have smoked since I was 14. I am 32 now. This is not my first quit, but this time it has to stick. I had a stroke on 1-31-07 and my docs say the only reason is because I smoke. The only excuse I have for smoking is that it is my only "vice" and I didn't want to give it up, but now I am paralyzed on the left side of my body. Looking at it now, I have 4 kids that I want to see grow up.

Another stroke would likely kill me and I don't want my kids' memory of me to be Mom sitting in her wheelchair smoking. I have finally realized that it is so not worth it, trying to get out of bed everyday, and falling because I can't stand on my own, just to go to my desk for a smoke...

Advice:
Make sure you're doing it for yourself or it won't work

photoNever give control over your quit to anyone but you. Be responsible for your own actions. This way there is no such thing as cheating- you know what you do.
