Yay! Good news!

Friday, January 21, 2011

Today I talked to the director asking if the Salvation Army had any programs to help me stop smoking and he had me call our Employee Assistance Program. They are going to pay for me to have 6, one-on-one sessions with a counselor, and....they have two drug and alcohol specialists that work there that I can talk to whenever I want, as long as I do all the homework they will be giving me, and they said it will be a lot of work-but I don't care because it will be worth it! They are setting me up with a support group and in about three weeks, I will be getting my prescription for Chantix through one of the drug companies for free, shipped right to my front door, for a year if I need it! God is really working His miracle in my life right now because I have started smoking again, almost a whole pack today. I didn't know what I was going to do-besides die from smoking-because I can't seem to do it on my own. But now I am excited and have hope of quitting! I really think with all the help they are giving me, I will be able to do it-forever!

    So glad you are getting some assistance, Suz. Love your determination. My daughter, age 33, has smoked half her life and tried many times to quit. Keep me posted on what is working for you. emoticon

    Woo hoo! You sound so happy and that is great!
    I just wondered if you had tried the stop smoking book by Dr Alan Carr? I used that book and stopped almost three years ago but everyone is different. Just thought i'd mention it.
    Stay happy!
