My Quit:
I grew up in a home where cigarettes were a constant -- both of my parents smoked. I always said I would quit when I turned 30, but that day came and went. I always had an excuse - work, stress, family illness, relationship trouble - for why it was the "wrong time" to quit. It wasn't until I started dating someone with children, shortly after my divorce, that it "clicked." I'm at 11 months today. I never could imagine my life without smoking - because it had demanded that much importance. The day I began to resent that cigarettes were holding me hostage from a life without coughing, required breaks, awful smells, airport anxiety, and $10 a day, the rest was just recognizing nicotine's voice in my head and telling it to shut the heck up.

Advice:
Find that thing that makes you determined to take back the control that cigarettes have over you, your life, your health and your future. It's different for everyone.

photoYou HAVE to want to quit, plain and simple. I think that journaling will help me tremendously, since I love to write. Think about how good we'll smell!!! :)
