Sending encouragement your way Linda. I quit 6 years ago, I kept getting annual pneumonia, the last time really scared me. Took huge doses of drugs to bring me out of it. I tried with those pills but they didn't seem to help any so I just quit cold turkey. I made up my mind I wouldn't buy any more and wouldn't allow my self to "bum" one either. Not that I don't on occasion want one, but the urge isn't all that strong. It's kind of a pass through my mind thought and then it goes away. The best advice I ever got and what kept me strong....."The urge to have a cigarette will go away, whether you have one or not".

Update on my Dad...
The angiogram is done, he has extensive blockage in right leg from groin to just below the knee. He will need bypass surgery to run a synthetic tube to reroute blood flow and will most likely amputate the toe at the same time. But first he needs a stress test and a green light from cardiology. His heart is in and out of a-fib.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!

Nice thing about not smoking is that I will take all that money that went for smokes, and will be saved for a greenhouse! At more than $5-6 per pack, that will add up really fast!

Hurray! Hurray! for LindaK. Big Grin Big Grin great thing to do. my advice is to put money in a jar, so you can watch it grow!! sure added to the motivation for me!! when I quit over 25 years ago. A green house is an awesome goal!!!

carrot sticks, celery sticks, apples, grapes.....
I had to keep a pack of cigs, with just a few in it....If I knew it was there for me to have, if I felt I really needed it I was ok....when I tried to get rid of all of them.....that was not good!! I ended up bumming a few off of a friend.... Whistling

Group hug and prayers for you and Dad, and all of the family...

I quit smoking 13 years ago, and I had a craving for one a month ago. Just out of nowhere, I wanted to reach for one........ But my health has improved so there's no way I'm EVER going to smoke again!!
Oh, and what I did to get past the first 3 weeks?! I cleaned house, and just plain got BUSY! Did not eat anything more than my usual.

Sissy Marti used to smoke...then one day she came down with the "flu" smoking didn't even sound good to her and if she got arounds someone who had just had a smoke or was smoking she got throw-up ill...and went back to bed...so finally went to the Dr. cause it was interfering with her working...after some tests and a return to the Dr. she learned that she did not have the flu...she was actually nicotine toxic and would never smoke again...her system had rebelled! She will be the first to admit that there are times the thought crosses her mind, fleetingly, "sure would be nive to have a cig." and her next thought is her body saying: "go ahead...but paybacks are a bitch!" This happened in 1992/3 and she has not had a cig since.

I never picked up the habit...like so many others I like food...that is my addiction and with my diabetes I have learned to control it. Oh and when it comes to being around a smoker...I get a headache and my stomach turns over...so we live in a smoke free environment..when I want to go visit someone new I have to ask "is your home smoke free?" and it not, I suggest we meet in a place that is smoke free...or I don't cultivate the new friendship.

So LK you have my heartfelt support in your journey through quitting and I know you will be better for it..health wise and comfort wise. I am here for you and I know I can enlist Marti in this road to better health as well....God Bless.

Best wishes for your dad!!!!

Funny....I smoke but I truly can 'take it or leave it'. All the time I spent in hospitals this year I swear, it never crossed my mind. I never think of it in public, and would not be comfortable smoking anywhere except by the one ashtray I keep in the same spot at home.

Perhaps it is from all the years in management. I was iin meetings lots of the time and just didn't smoke at work, lunches, or conventions. I had a long drive through the city and would light up as soon as I got in the car........

....UNTIL...(this is funny)...I drove down to MO to pick-up Inky. He was in the passenger seat, sitting up nicely (he still rides like a person) and once out of town, I lit up. Inky looked over at me with startled eyes and promptly said...."chew!!!...'CHOO!!! and I was pretty sure he didn't mean, "I want to eat!"

...we don't smoke in the car anymore. Good luck with your efforts Linda and God Bless your dad.

Thanks for all the support ladies!
Marti must have been pretty sick to have the Nicotine poisoning! Glad she is OK now!
Jaime, I can see Inky sitting up in the front seat! Sounds like she enjoys going for rides?

omygoodness........ Nicotine toxic?!?! Well, if you're going to be allergic to anything, that's the best thing to be allergic to!! Or rather...... toxic means she had too much in her system, and it rebelled! Good for Marti's body!! Hurray!
Today, as I left work, I had to pass by some smokers outside the building. I started sneezing when the smoke filled air reached me. Didn't like it a bit! Sticking tongue out

Around here, especially on the base where Todd works, no one is allowed to have a cigarette within 50 feet of the door. There are designated smoking area's, and you will get into trouble if you leave that area with a ciggy in hand!

Lord Jesus, He's all I need.
Love all these input on smoking.
Let me be the first to admit I was the most foolish teenager in Singapore.
I wanted to be hip.. to be 'admired' by the boys for being brave enough to light up a ciggie, in a society where smoking is taboo for girls.
To make matters worse, I started with Pall Mall. Remember those? No filters. Then went on to Marlboro. Would never be caught with Eve nor a Menthol.
What was I thinking?

Well, glad that's behind me now. Now I can't stand tobacco smoke and am glad that all public places prohibit smoking.

Public places here prohibit smoking, and it's 50 ft from building as well. Unfortunately, the steps are blocked for construction, and only way to get by is on the pedestrian ramp..... right beside the smoker's area.... with their ash trays..... peeeeeeuewwwwww
You get a fine if you smoke on the transit train platform too - $500! Big Grin
