Sometimes I see cars pulled up at a stop light with windows that look as if they were smeared with Vaseline.

See kids, that is what is going on in your lungs when you smoke, but at a much greater level.

I have personally apologized to each of my four daughters for smoking in the car while traveling to/from school or wherever. In an earlier post on this thread, something I wrote was seen as positive to smoke odor, but it was misinterpreted. After being off cigarettes for almost thirteen years, the odor of smoke on a person makes me gag...and that's what I did to my kids. I will be sorry for the rest of my life.

Default I Quit Smoking

When my wife was pregnant with our daughter she asked me to quit for Christmas. That was 2 1/2 years ago... And I feel great now, able to run 3 miles three times a week and play with both my kids heavily (apparently I'm a mobile jungle gym ) now I wonder why I did it to begin with. And it doesn't bother me a bit to be around it, guy I carpool with smokes like a chimney!

In my work I need to go into the homes of smokers from time to time. Their homes stink! I remind myself that 25 years ago that is how my house smelled. I do my work, am nice to the people, and leave as quickly as professionalism allows. I do not judge because I understand how addictive nicotine is and how addicted I once was. I am sorry for my customer's addiction, but I am totally aware that it is up to them to reach the point that they decide for themselves that they need to be free.

Just quit yesterday at 9:15pm. Smoked since 2002 and finally decided I was done. Been sweating my ass off today but no bad withdrawals or cravings.

You can do it! Stick with it, it's tough, but you can handle it. If I can do it, so can you. Grapefruit, peeled & eaten like an orange helped me get thru it, so did those little strawberry hard candies with the jelly in the center. Also, if you stay busy/keep your mind occupied, that helps too.
Regards, GF.

Good job! You can do it!

When/if the cravings hit remember that cigarettes and nicotine are the reason you are feeling like you are, they are not a solution to the problem.

Fix the blame on them because that is where it belongs.
