Layouts 4 Ning and more!

Me and Hubby have decided to try to quit smoking. We are figuring out a stop date which will be here in the next couple of days. I have tried to quit before and made it 3 weeks but was also very sick those 3 weeks so it wasn't as hard. I really need to succeed at this not only because smoking has become so expensive but because of my health and it would really be nice to be able to smell and taste and be able to breathe better. And anybody who knows me knows how much I love my coffee and that will probably have to be cut down or out on since it goes hand in hand with my smoking. I know .. One addiction at a time would probably be best but when I drink my coffee I ALWAYS HAVE to have a cigarette with it so in this case I think maybe quitting both would be the better choice. I know this is NOT gonna be easy. Any encouragement or pointers from those who have quit would be nice. I'm open for suggestions.

Oh Missy I hope you can do it! Asking friends for support is the best thing to do! When I quit, I quit cold turkey while working at a bar with people smoking in front of me all the time. Maybe it helped the cravings? There was no way I was giving up coffee though. Make something else take the place of the smoke with the coffee like a sucker or a toothpick. I have also heard that most cravings last only a couple of minutes and if you go brush your teeth when having a craving it helps you not want to smoke when you're done. Call a friend when you feel a craving coming on if you have to. Soon the smell will turn your stomach.

I am behind you all the way!

I CAN TELL YOU THAT I STARTED SMOKING WHEN I WAS 13 YEARS OLD. I AM 31 YEARS OLD NOW. I STOPPED SMOKING WHEN I WAS PREGNANT WITH TWO OF MY KIDS. I STOPPED CLOSE TO 4 YEARS AGO. I THOUGHT I NEEDED HELP FROM SOMEONE TO TO STOP. BUT I KEPT ON HAVING HEAD ACHES AND I DIDN'T LIKE THE TASTE ANY MORE. SO ONE DAY I WOKE UP AND TOLD MY SELF THAT I WAS GOING TO QUIT. AND SURE ENOUGH I DID IT COLD TURKEY. PEOPLE WHO KNEW I SMOKED LOOKED AT ME AND TOLD ME HOW DID YOU DO IT? I TOLD THEM EASY. I DIDN'T LIKE IT ANY MORE SO I QUIT. IT IS GETTING VERY EXPENSIVE. WHAT BRAND DO YOU SMOKE? I USED TO SMOKE NEWPORTS. WHERE I LIVE NOW IT ONLY COSTS 4 DOLLARS AND CHANGE. WHERE I USED TO LIVE IN NEW YORK LONG ISLAND THEY COST NOW 7.50. YOU BUGGIN IF PEOPLE STILL WANT TO KEEP ON SMOKING WHEN THEY NOW IT IS GETTING SO HIGH UP IN PRICE. WELL I PRAY FOR YOU THAT IT WORKS FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK.
