Hi everyone,
Okay, so I just put out my last cigarette ever. It is about 11pm here and I am getting ready to go to bed. I don't know how much time I spent on this site today, but I am confident that it helped keep me motivated throughout today. I am ready for tomorrow. I put a ticker on my signature so I hope it works okay. Talk to you all in the morning, with my morning coffee. Good night all.

Great choice Krissy!!! You can do this and we're here to help you. Quit meter is awesome and working great. Also try any of the quit smoking apps for your smartphone. I used one and whenever I had an urge to smoke I would open the app and see how much money I was saving, how many cigs I WASN'T smoking, how much tar I WASN'T inhaling, and it even had meters to gauge the percentage of increase in health benefits. The app was QuitIt. Look for any ways you can to make it through the harder moments, and as Cris said...stay close to the board, post often, post an SOS if you need to. There is always someone here to help you. Congrats!!!

Keep candy or sunflower seeds in your pocket. You will have a craving. Be prepared. You can do this.

Congrats Krissy!

If you do find yourself struggling, remember that cravings are part of the process. And it's a struggle! So if you struggling you are right on track, and right where you are supposed to be. They have nothing to do with you wanting to smoke, otherwise you wouldn't be doing this. All the cravings mean is that you don't want to be in withdrawal.

If only that heartless lizard brain knew that quitting was the best and only way to relieve withdrawal...permanently.

You got this!

Keep on rocking that quit. headbanger.gif

Congratulations!  You have just discovered the secret text!  Have some cake. the_cake_is_a_lie_portal.jpg

good morning, how is your first day? welcome to your new life :)


Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

Well it is lunch time and still smoke free. I had a couple of rough moments in which one time went to the car and cried and then I was fine. Twizzlers work great for driving in the car. I feel okay right now, like someone else said it feels like a roller coaster. One minute I am okay and then the other I am either aggitated, depressed or angry or something. Anyway, I am very motivated and do not want to smoke. I will keep you posted.
