Day 8 - I QUIT!!!!

Friday, November 16, 2012

Today is my "quit day" for smoking and surprisingly enough....I QUIT!!!! emoticon emoticon

I KNEW I was determined enough to do this and with God's help, I DID IT!!!! I'm so excited!!! emoticon

Tomorrow is my weigh-in and hopefully the scales will show a loss. I just have to be careful to not substitute food for not smoking. That's what got me in trouble before when I quit for 3.5 years. Got depressed with my weight and went back to smoking to help lose the weight. Seems like I traded one bad habit for another. This time it will be different!!! I can ALWAYS eat healthy and exercise, BUT, I can't always quit smoking and get my health back.

Wanted to share the good news with you emoticon

    I don't know if exchanging one oral habit for another will help you get there, but chewing gum seems to be something a lot of people try. Smoking is one (and maybe the only one) bad habit I didn't take on. I have known many people who gave it up and that it worked for for varying lengths of time, including forever. I sure hope that your determination will match that of others who are around you for support. Don't let anyone think it is okay to turn back to smoking ever!!
Best wishes to you,

    Its the oral fixation. My MIL quit with the help of Mary Jane candies. I've also heard of using gum or flavored toothpicks. I'm not going to wish you luck, I'm psychically sending you extra willpower to draw on when the going gets tough.
