Fantastic . . don't give up . . .because the longing may last for a long time. But your health (and pocketbook!) are worth it . . you've come so far.

I am a born again Christian and I love the Lord with all my heart. He has changed my life so I now live with more peace and contentment. I no longer desire to have what some of my friends have , but know God knows my needs and I am so grateful that He has given me my needs and not my wants. I enjoy writing my daily blog Bible Verse for each day. I enjoy spending time with God every day.
I enjoy Spark People and the ones I have become friends with. Thy have become an encouragement as I go al

I went cold turkey in 1986 because a cute guy asked me out and then mentioned he didn't date smokers.

Maybe they haven't said it to your face, but the people in your life are probably so happy at your achievement.

You can do this! The first 3 weeks were actually the hardest for me. Once you're over that hurdle just don't light up EVER again.

Here's a trick a friend told me about years ago. Take some spent cigarettes (hopefully that someone ELSE smoked!) and put them into a small jar with a tight fitting lid. Add a tiny bit of water and just let it sit. Whenever the urge gets really strong, open that jar and take a whiff. That will DEFINITELY kill that craving at the moment. Believe me, it STINKS!!!

They say that a craving comes on and lasts only about 90 seconds or so, so take some deep breaths when those cravings hit, get up and walk around for a couple of minutes, put a package of nicotine lozenges or a few pieces of the gum in your pocket and keep them with you at all times. You CAN beat this! I tried many times before I was finally successful! We're all here for you!

It does get better. Just take it one day at a time like losing weight and keeping it off. They're both lifestyle changes. I smoked for 16 yrs and I've been quit for the past 16 yrs. My husband still smokes and I can't stand the smell of them anymore. Strength be with you all.

Congrats!!! Keep going... eventually, the thought of a cigarette will disgust you and so will the smell when you catch someone else smoking. But it takes a while. Be patient and realize this is a big a change!!!!

On Oct. 1, I celebrated my 20th anniversary of being smoke-free! I don't think about it anymore, but boy, when I hear someone say they are quitting I step up to cheer for them because even after 20 years, I remember that struggle!

Hooray for you!!!! And here's to better health!
