Hello.  I quit smoking for the 5th or 6th time.  I can't remember.  I am on my 4th week now.  I feel like I am over the "hump" and the cravings are quickly diminishing.  I discovered that my blood pressure was out of control, so my doctor told me to quit or go on meds.  So, in the same week, I quit smoking, drinking and caffiene.  It was difficult and still is, but I am determined.  Oh yeah, there is a smoker still in my house too.  I make him go outside now and he isn't very happy with that, but too bad.

Thanks everyone!  I don't have much of a support group because just about everyone I know smokes.  I've been pretty isolated for the past 4 weeks.  But, I am determined to succeed for my health and well being.  I feel so much better.  I can smell, breathe, play with my dogs without getting winded.  I do have to get my blood pressure checked in two weeks, so I'm hoping this has helped. 
 
As for rewards, I'm saving the little ones for a great big one.  In two months or so, we break ground on my new 2 1/2 car garage.  I am going to use the money I save for little upgrades.  And, I am also rewarding myself with little projects around the house that I didn't have energy for before.  After the garage, next up is painting all the outside trim work on the house.  I have learned that boredom brings on cravings, so I make sure I am busy. 
 
And, I didn't do it cold turkey.  I am on Chantix, which is going well, except for the occasional hearburn.  And I receive daily check in calls from them and that helps remind me why I am doing this.

Nice Impala!!!  In answer to the question about what fits in the 1/2 part of the garage, that's where I will keep all my tools and yard equipment.  I don't have any toys at the moment.  I sold my 71 Camaro about three years ago and have regretted it ever since.  Maybe I'll get a new one someday.
 
I do have a questions about avatars.  How and where do you add them here?  I have looked everywhere and can't find anything.

What a cutie you have, Jazz.  And it's nice to see beagle people on here, too.
 
I'm doing good today.  I have more good days than bad as far as cravings are concerned.  At least I don't have the really strong ones like I did at first.  Even the little ones are diminishing.  And I am finding that I don't like to be in smoke filled rooms anymore.  I suddenly feel the need to get out of there as fast as I can.  Thank goodness they outlawed smoking in restaurants where I live, otherwise, I wouldn't go anywhere anymore. Although, I should probably stay away from food for awhile.  That's one weird thing.  I'm hungry more often now. 
 
On a side note, Jan and Kaiser, I encourage you to visit ourbeagleworlddotcom?  It's a site that is devoted to people who are owned by beagles.  It's a pretty neat site.

This is my last week on Chantix. Advice needed!!

Marivi:
 
I'm glad you consulted your doctor.  Don't worry about not taking it.  I look at it as a crutch.  Once you stop, it's completely up to you whether or not you submit to the evil cravings.  I think of it as Step 2.  Step 1 was going on Chantix and quitting.  I'm on it now and according to my doctor, can remain on it as long as I feel it is necessary.  Yeah, I'm bloated and moody, but I have to say, I love the dreams.  Sometimes they are so vivid, it's hard to tell if they are real or not.  But they are happy ones. 
 
Anyway, do what you feel is best.  I like the idea of weening yourself off of them.  Everyone reacts differently.  Hang in there and keep us posted.
