    Default Danger! Danger! I just quit smoking!!!

    I spontaneously quit smoking on Wednesday morning - the computer/office area is one of the places that I smoked, so I can't be in here too much right now! Dang, am I cranky!!!

    Any words of wisdom, etc, would be appreciated... hopefully I will respond in a pleasant way, but can't make any guarantees.

    Write poetry. Chew gum. Howl at the moon. Tell knock knock jokes.

    And give yourself a break.

    Suelough, I told backgammonbob recently how I was the one to cry the first three weeks when my X would try to quit smoking. Just know we are proud of you for taking this initiative and its something you and your kids will benefit from. Now for me..........

    They say twenty-one days makes a habbit. Hang in there. You can do it because you want to and because its smart to take care of your health.
    We're here if you need to vent. Go ahead, hurt my feelings instead of the kids.

    I've never smoked, but 2 of my neighbors are trying to quit and I can see first hand how it affects them!! I must be so hard! You are doing a good thing for your health. My neighbors kids have printed pictures of healthy lungs and lungs with black lung disease and taped them in their parents cars, on the fridge, on their nightstands and even in the bathrooms!! It seems to be helping. The one nieghbor has started chewing on straws because he keeps "cheating" and smokes every once in a while. He says it keeps his hand and mouth "busy". The other neighbor has been spring cleaning and cleaning out closets to keep her mind off of it...her house is very shiney right now!! They both gave it up on New Year's day. You can do this!!!

    hi Sue
    I never smoked myself but grew up with two parents who both smoked - It has been terrible through the years of my life to watch first my dad - from lung cancer and then my mom from heart disease and emphysema - die!
    I begged them - esp my mom - she quit once for two weeks after quadruple heart bypass surgery - then went back to it - please don't I told my mom again and again - please don't smoke I love youand want you around when i am old and grey - but we lost years because she couldn't - sometimes I felt angry about it and sometimes just sad
    You have done a great thing by quitting - I send hopes and prayers you will be successful with this! you need ot for yourself - but KNOW your kids will be grateful - I know I would have been - maybe that thought will get you through a spot or two. YOU CAN DO IT!

    imagination is the only weapon we have in the war against reality!

    success is simply getting up one more time than you fall

    Sue, I added 15 minutes of exercise each day for Lent, so we can be cranky together.

    Twenty days for a habit to form or change, huh? I've got forty. Well, 37 or so now.

    When you want a cigarette, take of sprinting out the front door. Run as fast as you can till you cant run anymore. Turn back around and walk home. You wont want a cigarette anymore--

    (while this does actually work--I am an awful quitter- ive failed a few times.

    GOOD LUCK SUE SUE!@
