Becoming smokefree.....

  1. hey everyone

    well, you might of seen in some of the threads and i'm trying to stop smoking.... i must say its day 7 of being smokefree and its not as bad as i thought it was going to be..... i could totally still kill for one, but we'll see what happens....

    thanks to loganz for her great idea - it sorta worked but i got use to the taste and almost carried on smoking! :amazed:

    but i must think about my life in the long run... i do want to have more money for bags and my trip! (well theres 4 of us heading your way, so does that mean i can get 4 cartons of smokes through duty free? ;) )

    before anyone asks, yes i have done patches (twice), and the gum... both times it was a waste of time! :sad2: tried this out a few years ago!

    well, i'll keep you guys up to date with my progress - if i save enough money i might even be able to get a new bag.... ***waves to amandas pewter balenciaga and magenta balenciaga***

    thanks for listening :amuse:
  2. Good for you! Smoking is one of the hardest thing to quit but I know you can do it! Let us know how you are doing... we're here to help!
  3. Please just stop - I did it a long time ago (cold turkey) I got scared and didn't want to be the architect of my own demise. I have an addictive personality and it wasn't easy but it was so worth while!!! Get healthy for yourself and those who love you - :love:
  4. You can do it, helen! I have faith in you :amuse: The payoff is worth it - you'll be healthier and you'll have extra cash for bags and other things. My dad used to smoke back in the 70s, quit when I was a baby, then started again when he switched jobs about 6 years ago. We had a long talk, and he decided to finally quit for good. He said it's one of the best decisions he's ever made :nuts:

    We're here for you! Post when you're having a craving for a cigarette - we'll knock some sense into ya :p

    Good luck! :love:
  5. GOOD FOR YOU Helen! You are a better woman than I. I smoke about 5-6 cigs a day and as nasty as it is...I love sitting out by my pool, the ocean behind it watching the sun go down, the boats go by having a cig, and nice glass of wine...ahhh bliss at the end of the day! Im happy for you, I can only imagine how difficult it must be! My husband quite after the new year and I wanted to go buy him a carton, he was driving me crazy!
  6. That's great. You'll be so much healthier and happier in the end.
  7. Good luck HelenNZ!!! I quit cold turkey in 1993. If I could do it, there is hope for EVERYONE! I was smoking about 2 packs a day!!! I'd have a cigarette before getting out of bed in the morning. I even would have a cigarette while I was eating. I know, gross. I think you just have to make your mind up to quit. Hang in there. It does get easier as time passes. I'm routing for ya!!!!
  8. Good job!!! I saw online that there these tea which can help. I was looking at it for my dad lol But I don't know if you can get addicted to the tea as well??Anyway Keep up the good work!
  9. Ill be rooting for you !!! You will be glad you stopped in the long run,

    Take care and keep us posted.
  10. Good for you!!!! Hang in there.
  11. Good luck! I know you can do it!
  12. Ditto! Remember your health is more important than anything else!
  13. good luck! when you want it bad enough, you can do anything - my addiction has always been food and i lost 30 pounds last summer. just think about all those beautiful bags you can buy instead of ciggies.
  14. Congratulations, Amanda!

    And good luck to you ladies who want to quit smoking. :idea:
  15. GOOD LUCK! i know you can do it! just keep thinking..."balenciaga!!"
