Newbie getting ready

Hi everyone! I hope it's OK to post my intro now when my quit date isn't until June 1. I've been smoking for 30 years and have tried many times to quit, but was never successful. This time I'm doing tons of research and have spent a lot of time here reading everyones' posts. I'm on the 3rd day of the first week of my Chantex and I'm hopeful that this will be my last Quit! I'm trying to prepare myself for my quit date by cutting down the number of cigarettes I smoke. So far I've gone from 15 a day to 5-6. It's wierd but I think the Chantex is kicking in because when I do smoke it's as if I'm smoking air and, well, it's hard to explain, but it just feels different. I'm both scared and excited to quit and can't wait to be free from nicotine's hold over me. So, you'll be seeing me around. :) [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B]6/1/2007 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] -4 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] -68 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] $-16.00 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 0 [B]Hrs:[/B] 0 [B]Mins:[/B] 0 [B]Seconds:[/B] -34642

Preparing to quit

Wheeley, I'm new here too and my quit date is just 4 days before yours so we'll be just about on the same time line. Congrats to you and your husband on your decision to quit together. That's fantastic. My husband quit smoking 7 years ago and he's really excited that I've decided to quit..finally.

I could have smoked today

Oh, I'm so sorry about your kitty! I've had to put down beloved pets before and it's such a sad and hard thing to do. As you said, it's something that comes with having pets, but they are such a delight and comfort that's it is worth it. Congrats on staying strong on your quit through such a stressful time.

Thanks everyone! I must confess I'm actually excited about quitting!! That's got to be half the battle. I'm looking forward to being a non-smoker and meeting some new friends here too.

I've Had Enough

Hi HadEnough! Congratluations on getting ready to quit. My quit date is June 1st so I'll be right there with you. So far this board has been very helpful for me. I worked the program on the left (<-- over there) and found it very helpful. I'm taking Chantix, this is my 4th day of the first week. It's really helping already, the cigarettes just don't satisfy like they used to. Good luck! YOU CAN DO IT!

Beach? Boat?

Ok, I'm new and not quite sure what the beach and boat references are about. Can someone point me to where I can read about them? Thanks!
