    Hmmmmmmmmmm... I wonder if we might be able to impose on Bruce to maybe sticky this thread, or start a new one to support our people who want to quit. Some of us have already fought the fight, and some have yet to try, but it's always easier when you have someone to talk to about it.

    Just take it one hour at a time, as I suggested in a previous post. I know that Carrie will be glad for company on this journey.

    Sure! Let me see what I can do. This is important.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Thumbs up DAY TWO

    Carrie and Rosalia,

    Welcome to day two.

    Just remember. One hour at a time. Hey, even 1/2 hour if need be. No matter what, you can make it through the short periods, so don't even think about the long run.

    Keep some hard candy in the house and use it as you need to. I used chewing gum, but I suspect the candy is a better idea.

    And find something to keep your mind and hands occupied. Boredom is the enemy!!

    Talk to and tend to your orchids. Just think how much healthier and happier they're going to be, without the threat of some tobacco bourne virus. See, health benefits all around.

    We're all with you on your journey, so just holler out if you need some cheering on.

    You're doing it because you have more than your share of medical issues, and can alleviate at least one or two of them by not smoking. That's why!!

    Greengo, sorry I hadnt noticed you asking about champix, without going into boring details I cant have it as I have a history of Mental health troubles and it can trigger problems in people, it was one avenue I looked into last time I quit. I do believe it works well in those that can have it, thanks for the suggestion though, it would have been a good plan if I could have it.

    Hey Carrie I just saw this thread and wanted to say that you have my support too. You will feel so much better and healthier if you can get past this.

    After watching a family member pass away from oat cell carcinoma I can't stress enough to my other family and friends who smoke how quickly you can lose someone who is diagnosed with lung cancer. I know when my father quit smoking many many years ago he would put a toothpick in the corner of his mouth and for some reason that seemed to help his cravings. Maybe you could try that...the cinnamon ones are really tasty.

    Best of luck to you...just remember...this too shall pass. You can do this!

    Shann~

    Thumbs up

    thanks anne, tmai and everybody.

    carrie, today I began with that. I smoked 5 cigarets to less.

    I stopped smoking already before and remembered what help much is to change the routine. The habits are always very much taken root in the small daily gestures.... I am firm. thanks y'all
