10:15 pm tonight, close 8th day smoke free

Hello all quitters and soon to be quitters. It has been almost 8 full days now. I have been tempted many times over the last 8 days to ask someone for a cig. but I have resisted. I hope and pray that I can continue to resist. At this point I'm sure it is all mental and the physical act of hand to mouth thing. I know that I couldn't have done this without chantix. TTUALTR, Usta

Congratulations Usta!!! 8 days quit is so awesome!! I still have the mental thing, but it does get so much easier the longer you go!! Keep up the great work and go reward yourself a little in 3.5 hours..... maybe a snack, an ice cream?? You deserve it!!!

Re: 10:15 pm tonight, close 8th day smoke free

Thanks for the support you all. I went and rewarded myself, I over did it with the sweets. My mouth is happy but I don't think my diet MD will be happy in less than two weeks. I asked dh to make a path to the treadmill for me tomorrow so I can burn off the celebration I gave myself tonight! In case some of you don't know I'm recovering from a back surgery on 2-26 this year. I'm not supposed to get on the treadmill just yet per my physical therapist, he wants me to try it there first. But I have to work off my reward or I will be waisting a lot of money for this diet dr. I can't stand to gain anymore weight. I was heavy enough before the surgery and quitting smoking has always been a crutch for me, saying, I can't stop smoking until I loose weight. This is why I am dieting and quitting the smokes at the same time. I am a type "A" personality, sometimes that isn't good, it tends to make me bite off more than I can chew and I've eaten my fair share of crow pie. I just believe that with the support of you all for the smoking, the back pain board for the back issues and the weight loss board for their support, I may not have to eat crow pie this time. I am determined to heal, loose weight and quit smoking. For the first time in my life I want to win one for me and not try to make everyone else around me happy. I bet a lot of you can relate to what I'm saying. Thanks for the support again, I really appreciate it. Usta
