My Quit:
I am 44 years old and have smoked over 20 years. I started smoking when I was a teenager. I got married young and shortly thereafter got pregnant. I quit smoking for 5 years. After my last child, I was overweight and decided I would start smoking again. I figured I quit for 5 years so I'd be able to do it again. I WAS WRONG. I did lose 35 pounds but my son has turned 21 now and after many attempts to quit, I still do smoke. This time I really think I can do it though. I am on my 10th day. I am using the patch and am very determined. I have two grandchildren and one on its way. I'm a fairly young grandmother and want to be healthy for my grandchildren, therefore I am trying harder than I've ever tried before.

Advice:
When cravings are strong, I look at my watch and tell myself I only have to make it until the next hour. One hour at a time.

Frequently Asked Question
Q: My family's hounding me about quitting, but I'm not sure I want to? answer
Quitticism
Celery is Under the Left Rear Tire
A secret code which would notify the HTBC (if it existed, which it doesn't) that a Qmember had finally snapped and done in a cow-orker, authority figure, etc. The non-existent HTBC would then dispose of the evidence. Not that it has ever done so. See also: Cow-Orker, HTBC.

photoThe line I read on QuitNet that helped me MOST was "If 51% of you wants to quit smoking, but 49% of you doesn't, you CAN succeed!"
