    Re: Quitting Smoking

    Thanks. I am still not smoking as much, but still smoking. I am trying to figure out a new target date for quitting as I'm still having the on and off again bladder pain. My doctor wanted me to give it two weeks last Mon. That would put me at Sept. 7. I think I'll see how the pain is doing in the next 2 weeks and then figure out a date.

    Re: Quitting Smoking

    So today is my 23rd day without cigerettes. I still get cravings but they pass within a minute. If someone offered me a cigerette during one of those cravings would I take it? Maybe...

    You're doing great, livin!
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    NO, you would not! :nono That is what you must plant in your brain! Belive it or not, you will suddenly get that urge at rare, unexpected times even years from now--expect it, and when that thought comes, slam the door on it witha big NO. It's all right to want one, not ok to entertain the idea of actually taking one. :

    I'm proud of you, livin4, keep up the good work.

    Livin, you are doing great! Keep up the good work and don't even think about taking even one puff. I am so inspired by you. You are well on your way to being a success story. You are one now!

    I am well on my way to not being one. But I hope too soon and you ARE my inspiration!!!

    So keep up the good work. I HAVE to have someone to inspire me.

    I unfortunately am not dealing well with the bladder problems and am still using that as an excuse to smoke. But I am seeing NO improvement on the bladder treatment front and have even had some issues that are new symptoms now.

    I guess there will ALWAYS be excuses to not quit. But I keep telling myself that I am going to do it and do it soon. And I will surprise you all when I finally do!

    Great job Livin. You're doing an awesome job. I agree with Queenb. You have to convince yourself that you can NEVER have another cigarette, no matter what. Once you've done that, it's pretty much down hill from there.

    Keep up the good work. You're doing great!

    Re: Quitting Smoking

    Excellent job, livin! Think of the money you saved in the last 23 days. How much is a pack of cigarettes anyhow? Are they still around $4 a pack? I don't smoke so I never pay attention. (Thank goodness I never smoked, with my addictive streak I would have been one of the chain smokers who has 2 cigarettes going at the same time, lol)

    They are generally around $6.00 a pack here.
