Still doing good...Just finished dinner. On the the next thing to do. I have managed to eat three meals today...I usually only have 2, even on the weekends.

Thanks for the encouragement, GB!
I like that toothpick idea. It has to beat candies, and chewing gum doesn't work for me because we are nto allowed gum at work. I'll remmeber that one.

Good for you, PF! I'm proud of you. When my mother quit, it was hard for her. Like you, she loves to spend money, so she calculated how much she would save in a year, and decided to use that money to treat herself if she made it (which she did!)

At 7 bucks a pack, and this being a leap year, so 366 days, in a year, you should save $2562.00!

Good motivation!

I quit too. It will be 4 years come October 13th.
I tried everything under the sun too. Then my doctor prescribed Chantix.
That is one wonder drug! Taking that I didn't even want an alcoholic drink when we went out to dinner! I had cravings at first too and you can smoke with them the first few days or so. Then you get to that point where they start tasting not so good and then more on to ICK! Don't worry about not finding things to do with your hands.
It isn't long before you forget about it anyway. Just once in a while now I still get a bit of a crave but it passes quickly. I go into a smoke filled room and I choke big time!
Good luck with your stopping!

Thank you, everyone! Still doing well with the smoking, not even a single craving today.

We got your back, Fiona!
I know I'm there, both supporting and following closely.
Kudos to Shrek, too; I'm sure it's hard for him as well.

*a hug for each day without*

He's getting closer to deciding to take the Chantix. And very tolerant of my walking away when he lights up.

Does the not smoking make you grouchy?

No, I've been very calm. He is just floored that I am doing so well.

Good luck! I will be starting the process the end of the month. (Didn't want to make it a New Years thing)

The past week I have found more activities with the kids helps cut back (I do not smoke around them) video games, movies and cleaning also helped. I am getting there, hope to be where you are by the end of the month!
