I quit about a month ago due to the pregnancy but I have been wanting to quit for quite some time anyway. Luckily for me the smell of cigarette smoke now makes me wanna so that definitely makes it a lot easier for me!LOL! I do, however, still crave on here and there. It's so strange how our bodies work like that...something like the weather being beautiful outside will make me wanna smoke or even when I don't feel good...weird. Glad to be done with it now. I just hope that I don't start up again after the baby is born. I always do.

WTG Krista! You can do it, girl! Just think, you are saving about $3 a pack (that's the common price I see advertised here). With all prices on food, gas, electric going through the roof, this will be an incentive. We spent $85 on a small cartload of groceries the other day which was mainly diapers and tiolet paper. Yikes!

I need to quit again. For good.
I did quit a couple of years ago when I had pnemonia. Then started again.
Well now every few months since then, I get bronchitis which is worse then the flu.
Smoking is really taking a lot out of me these last few years.
And I do believe my life will depend on it as I have both Heart Disease and Lung Cancer alot in both Mom and Dad's side of the family.

Hello Every body ,

Nice to see so many determined people giving up smoking for good,as the thread starter very correctly said that it helps your health and your wallet too.Good news is that i am blessed with a lovely kid!

I gave up smoking smoking out of compulsion,as i mentioned in my earlier posting.But now i feel good,healthy and do not suffer from those bouts of constant coughs.
