Hope i continue

I'm 38 yrs old, been smoking since i was 20 . average pack a day smoker. For the past 2 yrs i have tried to quit maybe 5 or so times..I have now been smoke free for 4 days..I quit on my fathers B-day he would have been 70. I really want to beat this habit before it beats me. I hope i can continue. I dont want to be a smoker at 40 yrs old.

Re: Hope i continue

You can do anything you set your mind to do, and nothing worth having is EVER easy....that's why it feels priceless when you succeed. I haven't smoked in a month. Somedays I have to fight myself.....I struggle, but I can't tell you the joy and PRIDE I feel for being strong. I'm 38 too. I have to stay away from alcohol for a while.....cigarette association thing. In a couple of months I will give it a shot. Hang in. It will pass and oneday you will wake up and realize you have gone the ENTIRE day without a single thought to smoking!

Re: Hope i continue

Thank you for the encouragement, sounds like your doing a great job yourself. Today was day 6 without a smoke for me and was another tough day..chewing alot of gum, certs, etc..and for some reason the craving for a smoke is at its worst after work and thats when i go for a walk it really helps to forget about the craving. Anyhow again GOOD LUCK TO ALL IN HERE !!!

Keep it up. The worst is behind you. Every day should be a little easier than the previous one.

Thank you. The temptation is still strong, but i refuse to give in this time. Last time i quit for nearly 2 months and gave in, but not this time!!!
