Thumbs up Have You Quit Smoking Yet! CONTINUED......

I know a few of you guys that smoke probably want to quit. Well maybe some of us former smokers can offer some inspiration.

Maybe that inspiration will be enough for YOU to quit also.

I will start. I have been smoke free for almost 6 years.

I smoked for the worst part of 30 years. Cigarettes, then I thought I would try something a "little less harmful", a pipe.

I ignored the effects that casual smoking may have had on my wife and children.

I ignored the effects it was having on me. Besides being addicted to the urge to smoke, I developed this nagging, hacking cough. Was that enough to quit?

Well not for me because I knew it would go away sometime. Well it didn't. It wasn't allergies or a cold it was smoking that dang pipe.

Then as luck would have it for me, my daughter gave birth to my first grandson. He sure was a joy to me. Someone to spoil rotten, spend my money on and to watch him grow up.

Well, to make a long story short, my daughter said that my new grandson couldn't come over to my house to spend the night because of the smoke environment that was created by me. It wasn't going to be enough for me to go outside my home when then visited to smoke. Realizing now that it was her way of getting me to quit because she loves me.

Because of the birth of my grandson, I promised my family I would quit. It wasn't easy. You will not be able to quit because you want to. You will need help.

Whether it be pills, a patch or the nicorette gum, get the help, the crutch so to speak, and get the job done.

When you think you are going to die because you don't have a smoke, just remember you will die if you do smoke!

BTW, the nagging hacking cough was gone completely in two weeks after quitting. I am told that the body has a miraculous way of healing itself if you stop early enough.

In all of this dialog, not once have I mentioned the monetary aspects of smoking. You know what that is to feed the habit, pack a day at $3.50/pack. Hmmm that's a smart sum to be spent on mods for your truck.

Let's hear some more inspiration from the guys who have quit.

AND LET'S HEAR FROM THE GUYS WHO ARE GOING TO QUIT!

Forteen months and I have survived. Still there are moments when a smoke seems like it would be the right thing, but even those moments are less of a craving and more of a habit response.

All right...count me in.

Quit date. 04 July 08.

Wish me luck...

Generally, I'm really really good at the smoking less and less until I get down to some ridiculous amount...like two or three cigarettes in a day...then "something" will send my stress level through the roof and I regress back to my ummm "predictable" pack and a half a day...or so.

The cutting back starts today...last smoke on 04 July.
