Sunday, September 07, 2008

I have Stopped Cold Turkey Smoking Cigarettes. Let me be the first to tell you that it has not been great and that I want one more than I dont want one but I am not giving in. I have even turned them down when people at my work offered them to me.

Why all of a sudden am I stopping??? I have my reasons that are others besides the fact that I am poor and buying cigarettes makes me even more poor..lol.. or that yes, they are bad for my health...lol.. or even yes, they have made it harder for me to lose weight. I want to be able to breath better... yet that is still not the main reason..lol...

My main reason is that I am almost 30, have no children, and want at least 1.. so, I am preparing myself.. even if I dont have one for a couple of years, it is never to late to get yourself and your body prepared to live healthier when living for 2.


I know that it is going to be even harder in the coming months... but I know I can do it because I AM doing it.

    Alisa,

    I'm very proud of you. When I quit, it had a lot to do with money as well and that was almost ten years ago! They are so much more expensive now.

    However, another reason is health. I have to be on BC pills because some female issues and a big possible side effect is blood clots. Throw in smoking which can cause blood clots, stroke and heart attack, well, I didn't want to stack the odds against me toooooooo much.

    Good luck! I'm rooting for you!

    I am sooooo Proud of you! You can do this. But let me give you one piece of advice, Take it slow and easy!!! Do it on day at a time. And Check in each day on you blog or with me or with some one as to how many days you have gone with out a cigarettes! Of it you even need to do it one hour at a time!!!
    It is not easy to stop a vice. I know! I have not ever smoked but I have had many other vises And it is one day at a time. And ALl these 28 day programs seem to have it right (NOt that I have done one) But I now when I gave up Soda especailly Dr. Pepper the first 28 days were the worst. I know giving up soda may not sound like much but I promise you I was addicted to it and When I did not get a soda a was the biggest B itch!!! I had terrible with drawl reactions. I will assume giving up cigarettes would be much the same!!
    So hang in there and keep me in touch!
