Day 5 is under my belt almost officially (will be when I climb in bed)
I tell ya, today I was the weakest and had some SEVERE moments that I thought I wanted to smoke again. If Mini was here with his cigarettes, it'd be all over.
BUT...the good news is that I didn't smoke or have a puff or cheat what so ever. So, I feel good. THANK GOD I didn't cave in earlier - I'd have to go through that $hitty nicotine withdrawl all over again and I don't wanna do that.
Tomorrow is a new day with new challenges - I am getting my arse to the gym to beat my body up for a while - that'll remind me as I'm wheezing horribly why I quit smoking
Still pulling for your brother and will think of him DAILY in my own personal fight against these evil cigarettes.......
Thanks for asking, and thanks for the support - I need all I can get
N/P.... thanks to you for thinking of my Brother. He sees the oncologist tomorrow. Don't give in during the weak moments. You can do this!!!!!!!! Think about how your lungs were meant to be.... pink and fleshy. Chew a straw!!!

I bet it'd be a lot easier if Mini was going through this with you!
(may have already been discussed... but if so, I missed it)
GoodLuck shandiggity- straws worked wonders for Tom... make sure you keep taking your vitamins though... he has been sick for about a month now and went to the dr. yesterday- he told him that his immune system is down, result from quitting smoking... if it is not one thing.. it is another! But i would rather have him sick with a cold then still smoking~ GOOD LUCK!!! You can do it!!
Oh yeah, licorice helped him out alot too!!!
YOU CAN DO IT!!! It is so great you are trying to stop, I know how horrible it is!!!!! My mom is a long time smoker and has tried to quit numerous times, but not with a whole lotta luck!!! I am rooting for you!!! It is sooooo worth it!
he offered me a "dip" the first day I quit smoking and I chuckled and said no thanks
he's doing good too - he is trying to quit cigarettes w/me but doesn't want anyone to know so DON"T TELL ANYONE GUYS hee hee
seriously though - he doesn't want people busting his chops if they see him smoking at an event so MUMS THE WORD EVERYONE
he's doing good - he had one smoke yesterday - that's it
and, naturally, a dip or two, but I really dont' mind that - all part of his machismo that I
those urges scared me last night - I don't want them to come again today so I am going to see a doctor somehow somewhere today to get me some chill pills - not a nicotine replacement, something else though because I really want to quit for good and for EVER
