Lol. 'Quitting is hard... Not quitting is harder' - those words keep running through my mind! My advice is to buy those sugar free double d lollies. Every time you feel like a smoke, suck on a lolly. You just need to keep yourself occupied! These first weeks are as hard as it will get - remember that!

Good luck... I believe in you!

I gave up 5 years ago and started again in Feb. I kept it a secret for so long from my hubby. Then the other night he got quiet emotional about it so it made me realise I got to give up. Plus he said we wont try for kids until I do.

I forgot how hard it is. I will buy some of those lollies. I still think its not the addiction I have its the habit. LOl that sounds like I am in denial doesnt it :lol: I shouldnt laugh :?

I COMPLETELY agree with you. It's not the addiction - it is the habit! SO TRUE!!!

That is why... You need to change the habit. When you are craving a smoke - reach for something else instead... One of those lollies are absolutely perfect! They are tasty... But not tasty enough that you will crave them - so I assure you that it will work.

Most smokers put on weight when they quit... Because they reach for food instead. Your lolly will do little to no harm!

Good luck!

I had it, before I saw this post and we had a fight about it, I got bustered. I can do this... I can do this.

Maybe if everytime I want one I can do crunches or something like that might help

Hey Milo - you can do this. I quit about 5.5 years ago.

It's really hard to quit for someone else though. You have to quit for you, otherwise it will be a daily battle not to smoke. I remember what that was like because I had quit smoking years before that, but every day was a struggle until I finally started smoking again.

Remember the 4Ds

Delay (if you say you'll wait 15 mins, the urge usually passes)
Drink water (flush those nasty ciggie toxins out of your body)
Deep breathe (helps you to relax)
Distract (i.e. do something else, keep yourself busy).

Nicotine is a nasty, nasty thing. People think they feel better or more relaxed when they smoke, but really, smoking just satisfies that nicotine craving and stops the symptoms of nicotine withdrawl. And think of all that money going to the multinational tobacco companies.

I think I was more of a habitual smoker because I didn't experience any bad nicotine withdrawl symptoms when I quit. I just needed to do something else - which was shove food in my mouth :roll: I loved the tingly sensation I got in my hands though as my blood circulation started to improve.

Go for the sugar free lollies - they're not going to sabotage your weightloss.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hi Milo, I just want to say that if my mother would have stopped smoking I would not be planning her funeral today.

She had a heart attack 10 years ago and Angina problems recently but would not give up smoking even though she was told to by her doctor. She died suddenly on Saturday night and I had go to the hospital to ID her body instead of going out to celebrate my 50th birthday.

I know it's not easy, I gave up about 10 years ago so I know how hard it is but please Milo give up those damm things before they kill you too.
