What is The Best?

thanks for all the support. I will not crumble. I must be stronger than the beast. Have you ever wondered why we ever decided to pick up that habbit? And why do we stick with it for so long, it is like bondadge. This week I know is tough (hell week) but I have made up my mind to battle this thing..................Lee

Hell Week

Hell Week- perfect name-I am having a craving right now and  all of you help me cope with this demon. Today is my 3rd day, and I am still holding firm. I will not bow down to the temptation. Toting a water bottle really helps the craving and changing your mind set also to something different when you have the urge, seems to help. I am chewing Nicorette Gum,  and there is a certain way to use it, which actually changes things up for you---------------its great for me, and I know it is working, because in the past I have tried and failed on the Patch,Wellbutron,  & Chantix. Thanks for listening!!!!!!!!!!!Lee

101 things.....

Pete you said it well, " forge a new normal and you will never go back" thanks for your honesty.
(my favorite time for a cigarette is in the morning with my cup of coffee)
 Life is more than being held back by cigarettes, at the movies, at a restaurant, almost everywhere you go, you can not smoke. I am tired of looking around for the lighter and to remember if I have cigarettes or do I need to stop and buy some. Oh how about the way you smell after you smoked, now its in your clothes your hair, your car, your house.................It really is good to be in my 3rd day of Hell Week

Hell Week

Breather---You have quoted Matthew 6:34 (NKJV) Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things, Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.-------------thanks for inspiration

weight gain

Sorry, I have been very busy and have not had a chance to join group session----still a non smoker 30 days today-what about this weight gain-30 lbs for me now & high cholesterol too. (Ooops) Started a exercise program last Monday, now I have something else to work on, but it is well worth it, no more smelling like a cigarette and wondering where I have set them down at..........On the morning news today, Chicago's cigarette tax will be raised another $1.00---Yikes---------------hope everyone is doing well and not giving in to that demon----keep up the good work
