Quitting smoking. .

Saturday, October 24, 2015

My next goal is to quit smoking. It's sooooo hard. I know I can do it if I just put my mind to it. Everyday I say I'm going to (at least start slowing down) then I get off track. I'm going to have to sit down, pray and really make a plan and do it.

    I'm struggling with tobacco, too. I have been back and forth with smoking and then quitting for years. The last two years I've smoked quite a bit and I want to stop now also.

    Don't hesitate to talk with your doctor for help. With that and a lot of prayer you'll be great!

    I smoked for 25 years and have not smoked in 10 years. When I worked I would skip breaks because management did not like us taking them so during the day I was not smoking very much. Then I found out I had cancer ovarian which also metasticized to my bronchial. I never smoked again after that operation and thanks to my good luck of not smoking during the day I just quit cold turkey. But stopping smoking has saved and extended my life. Best wishes to you and God Bless. emoticon

    Slowly, positively and surely you CAN overcome this. I have never smoked buy my husband did at one time and he has been successful for 4 years now. Just take one moment at a time and as the other person suggested, build streaks. That's a great idea. There is also medication and free state programs that can help you. Surround yourself with positivity and set yourself up for've got this. I will say a prayer for you as well. :)

    Best of luck to you on this...I don't have any experience, but my one suggestion would be to try and build streaks of not smoking for a period of time. That's worked with me for things I struggle with, like soda & chocolate.
