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.

photoWhat can I say? Take it one step at a time. There's no other way to make the journey than to put one foot forward and press on.
