I begin again to quit smoking. I quit for a number of years (5 I think). Then my mother died unexpectedly while having surgery. The surgery was a success. However, the patient died. Her death really threw me for a loop! So one cig to calm the nerves and you know the rest!
I've now been smoke free for 12.5 hours, quitting cold turkey. I feel better already. Cravings haven't been bad. I will admit that I did miss my cig with my cup of joe this morning. But I got over it quickly. Chuck, of course, is thrilled as are some friends of mine.
This time I'm determined to quit. Just as I lost 60 pounds 1.5 years ago, I know I can "lose" the cigs also and NOT gain any weight. Here I go! Thanks Tom B. for pushing me along!
