Quiting smoking is really easy, at least according to my daughter, she told me once: you'we quit so many times, it must be easy.

My strategy was just remembering how awful I felt and how I was getting so much better!

Princess, you are doing amazing, specially with all the other things going on in your life right now. I am proud of you and am proud to join your cheering section here.

You go girl!
Oh yeah, Laurie...I quit smoking

Thank you so much for your support!

I'm still quitting after each cigarette...just depends on when I smoked my last. That would be 1/8/2011 @ Midnight. Doing well today, just keeping busy and I need to write another lesson plan tonight.

In two more days, I will no longer update. However, the thread is here if I feel I need the support.

Thanks everyone for your support, ideas and good wishes. It's all been appreciated.

This is fantastic, PF. The worst is behind you (no pun intended)!

Yay!

I went cold turkey on salt several years ago, and after 2 weeks I started noticing the salt already in foods. I still use salt, but very sparingly, and I don't salt most foods at the table.

I went cold turkey on coffee January 1, 2008. Man did I have a headache for three weeks. Now, I laugh at my DH who can't get going without his morning cup of tea or a friend who comes to stay with me every now and again (she has to bring her coffee maker--got rid of mine) and her own coffee. She drags around until she gets her caffeine hit. I discovered I didn't even like the taste of coffee--hence, the reason I quit. I do use coffee in recipes, but don't drink it (well, I drink it about 2-3 times a year after dinner at a friend's).
