First of all, congratulations on your wonderful news!!! When is the baby due? Is your daughter excited about being a big sister? Give your wife a big hug from the DC clan.

Also, congrats on your decision to quit smoking. I wish you complete success - it's a tough thing to do. But if anyone can do it, I think it will be you, YT.

I did quit once many years ago but screwed up by thinking I could take a few puffs here and there and ended up back on the cigs. But I can tell you that after you quit you will feel like you have never smoked mentally as well as physically the first few days are the hardest but it dos get easier it takes 21 days to break a habit. I bought some Commit lozenges hope they help. You are trying to break several reasons to smoke including physical, habitual, emotional. social etc.
I think all of us who want to quit may want to find a quitting forum and join together.
My mantra is going to be " It must be done"

All joking aside, I know you can do it, JP. You're a really strong woman and a force to be reckoned with - the Marlboro man doesn't have a chance!

Thank you I know that sometimes a post gets overlooked but I need the support as well. I did a long time ago take the Cancer Society six week course to quit smoking so I can also be support to others as well.

Ironic isn't it that the Marlboro Man died of lung cancer.

I started smoking at 11. Smoked for 35 years then decided it was enough. Joined a Smoke Enders group, threw away the last of my pack, and haven't touched a cigarette since. No craving no nothing. That was 22 years ago.

If there is any one reason that I will never go back, it will be because I never realized how horrible smokers smelled. Their hair, breath, clothes, body , cars and homes smell awful. I never realized that smokers can't smell themselves. I can't even stand to be around smokers anymore. Good luck. It CAN be done. Just do it. It will be the best thing you ever did for yourself not to mention the money you'll save.
Good for you!!!

Yep, I have been giving him too much money for too long just so I can kill myself
