Attempt # who knows, lost track.  Smoking made me very ill this time, Doctor gave me a harsh warning with an intense, “if you do not quit......”.  Okay,  I am listening and taking the warning seriously.  Get it done, no better time than now. I was going to wait and procrastinate,  as everyone here knows I can do very well, lol. But seriously, not getting any younger or heather. It will be worth it in the long haul, I got this. Every time I crave I am just going to say N.O.P.E ( not one puff ever ), and will drink lots of water, helps the insides to feel like they are being cleaned out. On day 3 right now, so looking forward to being able to breath and not feel death knocking on my door anymore.  48 years old on a couple of months, 34 of those years lived as a smoker, started at age 14, wow, 14 years of my life since birth have been smoke free.  Scary to think about, but enough of the self pity BS, day 3 and proud of it.

    Well Mr. Roberts,  I would think that if your doctor gave you a warning it's time to take the nicodemon by the horn so to speak and send him packing once and for all.  You know you have our support and that of the quit coaches.  Just reach out anytime you need us.  Your health is important as you very well know and we want to make sure that it stays that way.  You're already on day 3 and that's fabulous.  Keep it going and all the things you're doing just now to stay quit, are going to work for you.  You won't regret leaving this addiction behind and the freedom is absolutely awesome.  Take care and stay in touch as we really do care,  hugs, Lucille.
