Here's a good laugh for you!

Dupe, Thanks for the laugh, I like your story. Now I can admit that in my first week, the first time I went into the local store where I always bought cigs, I got a few things and automatically asked for 2 packs of cigs. (talk about a habit!?) After the girl rang up the purchase, I "remembered" I didn't smoke any more and had to "return" them. Haven't done that since the fog lifted. LOL.

new medication advice needed...

I'm glad you guys are continuing this thread occasionally. I am not to the point where I am worried about the end of the Chantix days...yet... I feel great about the quit right now, and I will do the full 12 weeks and then decide whether to go further. I'll be reading this post again as the time gets closer. Sweet T, you are a week ahead of me, so I'll be watching for your post. Good luck.

WEEKEND PARADE

I'm nervous

Kayla, and Ky woman I think Chantix is the best thing I have tried. For my last quit I tried the patch and wellbutrin, but I didn't stay on either one long enough and I started smoking again. At least that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. I also didn't have the support I have found on this site, and I believe that makes a big difference also. Seriously, I plan to go through the whole 12 week Chantix program and I will not be ashamed to ask for another 12 weeks if I need it. (I don't think I will). Yes, every quit is different, but so far I haven't had any side effect from the medication, and I haven't suffered any withdrawal symptom that someone else hasn't already posted about. Everything is normal. Don't be nervous, Kayla. It isn't nearly as bad as you imagine it will be. It's not an easy thing, but as so many others have said, if I can do it after 42 years of 2+ packs per day, so can you but you really have to want to quit. Have your goodie bag nearby, and have a plan for when the craves come. Hopefully you won't have many...I didn't after the first few days. It's been much easier than I had imagined, because I have a great imagination and figured I would be climbing the walls, barking at everyone, and generally just being a B. Happy to say that it hasn't been the case...but I guess that depends on who you ask. LOL. You will have your moments, and bad days, but smoking won't make it any better. We like to blame our bad days on our quit, but we also had bad days as smokers, and I know the bad days will always be around. Sometimes it's just a bad day...got to accept them. Read all that you can on this site, and post to let us know how you're doing. Have a few laughs while you're here, we're good for that :) We'll take care of you.

Do Pets Go Thru Withdrawal??

Ok, so my normally docile 8 year old cat has, for the past 2 weeks or so, turned into PSYCHO KITTY! He is pulling the fur out of his tail (and leaving it all over the house) and makes noises that not only scare the **** out of me, but some that I have never heard before (at least not from the cat!) ;) He is sleeping in strange places (for him, anyway)and re-arranging anything that is on any table he happens to jump up on. Pillows are now the enemy! Could it be that now that the house is smoke-free, he is experiencing his own withdrawal? Yes, he will be going to the Vet (which is always so-o-o-o much fun).

The Magic Ship- Board Here!

Good morning all, Glad to see everyone again! I really missed you guys! Look at those stats for all of us! We are fantastic, aren't we? Our fearless leaders have given us such good advice and mentoring! The weekend was great, Sweetheart and I celebrated St Pat's day in our usual style. That means I was pretty out of it on Sunday, except to go to the bathroom and get more aspirin. Oh my, and I thought the parties on the ship were a hoot!!! Nurse 29 and hubby are still non-smokers! Hurrah! They should be back online this week, so I'm sure they will check in. I find myself thinking less and less about smoking. No real desire even in the bar while drinking (way too much). I did have a craving at 3am when I woke up...but it went away pretty fast. It just isn't something that crosses my mind too often. I am still on my guard, and I still haven't really experienced the "freedom", as I said before THAT's when I will know I am a non- (or ex-) smoker. Well, y'all have a great Monday, enjoy your golf Capt. sir, wherever you are. Keep flashin'those stats ladies, we know Phil is watching. LOL! No wine for me today, but the chocolate sounds good! Follow Me ~ Uncle Kracker You don't know how you met me You don't know why You can't turn around and say goodbye All you know is when I'm with you I make you free And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea I'm singin' [CHORUS] Follow me everything is alright I'll be the one to tuck you in at night And if you Want to leave I can guarantee You won't find nobody else like me I'm not worried 'bout the ring you wear Cuz as long as no one knows than nobody can care You're feelin' guilty and I'm well aware But you don't look ashamed and baby I'm not scared I'm singin' [REPEAT CHORUS] Won't give you money I can't give you the sky You're better off if you don't ask why I'm not the reason that you go astray and We'll be all right if you don't ask me to stay [REPEAT CHORUS] You don't know how you met me You don't know why You can't turn around and say goodbye All you know is when I'm with you I make you free And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea I'm singin' [REPEAT CHORUS] ;p
