I have been a smoker for almost 15 years now. I did quit during my pregnancy however since I delivered I have started again. I am so upset with myself. I have almost sunk into a depression over this. I know I can do it, I just don't. My mom and brother in-law both died of lung cancer at very young ages and I am terrified of doing the same. Especially now that i have a daughter. I have to find a way to get over this. Hope tools to life can help. I joined when I was trying to conceive in 2008 but I am only on day 6. I have some work to do! I plan to stick with it this time and become successful.
That's a hard habit to beat, but later on in the program you will get more Tools to help with it. In the meantime, just keep trying, you haven't failed until you quit trying. I know you can do it! And we're all hear for support. Have a great day!
It's really hard. Ozzy Osbourne said it was the hardest of all his vices to quit so don't be so hard on yourself. We're not stupid -- just addicted. I've quit about 5 times and I haven't had a smoke since January 4th. I'm using Nicotrol. When I'm around smokers it gives me the nicotine I crave and also relieves the "what to do with your hands" thing. It's a fake plastic cig with a nicotine insert. So far, so good and I've been around smokers and drinking. You might want to give it a try. Good Luck!! TJ
I am done smoking, I have finally realized the reason I get sick all the time has to do wih smoking for 20 years. I was even hospitalized 2 years ago because I couldn't catch my breath, pnemonia...the doctor said oh you quit now, but you'll be smoking again! He was right! Now I'm doing it for me. In doing tools, life is all about what you chose, I want to be able to breath!! If you want to be quit buddies, that would be cool!! you can do it!!
