Thumbs up Giving 'Em Up for Good

I have decided that I am going to give myself the very best gift I could give myself, as well as my family, and quit smoking on my birthday this week. As I watch my children and grandson grow up and as growing one year older kind of smacks ya right in the kisser that life is indeed way too short, I want to continue to be afforded the privilege and honor of continuing to watch them grow, prosper and raise families of their own. Smoking decreases those chances greatly, especially with my health history.

I know several of you here who have successfully kicked the habit and I welcome any tips and pointers you could give me to get past the withdrawal and stay off them for good. I quit for 4 years when I was pregnant with my children many moons ago and the way I see it - if I could do it before, I can do it again!

Anyone game on kicking the habit with me?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

I'm glad you've decided to give them up. I know how determined you are, so I'm confident that you'll be able to successfully kick the habit. I believe in you!

Good luck...my dad tried giving up drinking and smoking, but smoking proved to be the tougher of the two.

Thanks guys for the encouragement - I know it isn't going to be easy, but what in life that is worth a damn is?

I went through terrible withdrawal when I quit before but after a few weeks, those symptoms passed. After the birth of my son, I went back to work and started up all over again - back then smoking was permitted in offices. I think I'll just hide under the bed or behind the sofa for a few days.

Be glad you never picked one up, Nigel - I sure wish I hadn't.
