Likely the Hardest Thing I've Ever had to Do

The boyfriend and I have decided it's time to quit smoking...I've always been a "light" smoker...as in I smoke less per day than any smoker I know and have even gone days without having one...but the fact of the matter is I always knew I could light up whenever I wanted to and that's what got me through. But a year ago when the boyfriend started smoking (again) I found we were both smoking more and more...and lately it's hard to make ends meet because we are spending so much money on cigarettes...

Smoking for me has always been like a long lost friend...I enjoy it...immensely. I like the taste and the smell and it gives me something to do with my hands. But there are major health risks and I for one want to be around to watch the boy grow old and maybe some day get married and have kids of his own...so I knew quitting smoking was in my/our best interest.

Today is day 2. I've got a cold and a killer sore throat...so I'm sure that is helping things along. But I found yesterday that the only time I really craved a smoke was when I was relaxed and it was late at night...instead I chose to stuff my face full of barbeque peanuts lol. So am I destined to gain a little weight while we jump this hurdle...probably...but I think in the end it will be worth it.

So wish us luck please! The boyfriend is using the patch and I'm going 'cold turkey'.

Good for you Mel! I'm glad the boyfriend has decided to quit too so you can be there for each other. You can do it!

Good for yoU! It will be easier for you to quit when your boyfriend is too. Don't give up. and try try again if you must.

I'm a non smoker, but I grew up in a family of smokers, so i know it's tough but you can do it!

you can do it!!! I used Chantix and quit, but I do occassionaly (once every few mnths) when I have some drinks with friends.... I won't lie I MISS it, but I am so glad I stopped! (I do HATE the 20 pounds I have gained though)

Go Mel! Your body will love you for this - seriously. Maybe chew gum and take up knitting to give your hands and mouth something to do?

Good for you!!!! I am so happy for you. It is probably the best thing that you can do for yourself and for those you love. And how great that the boyfriend is with you!!!

Good for you!!! Good luck!
I have tried to quit at least 1000 times and I can never make it.
Problem is I enjoy it too much. My hubby smokes at least 2 packs a day so it's impossible for me to quit unless he does too. Then we would have to hide all the knives in the house!
