Here is the skinny:
I started smoking cigarettes when I was 12. Yes, 12 (no typo, twelve). I had smoked till I was 23/24, quit for a year, then started back up a pack a day or more at times, and finally quit when I was 26. Just stopped buying them! That seemed to be the easiet reason for me, don't buy another cigarette.
Well, about 7 months ago, I came to work after a short vacation....... to find the job in shambles, litterally messed up! I litterally almost lost my job, religon, and a few friends over it (ranting n raving). I was shaking I was so pissed!! Well I stopped, got a pack of cigarettes and haven't put them down since.
Well, I haven't had a cigarette in three days (since wednesday). I'm doing good, but am trying not to think about the cravings.....
I have good reasons to quit.
* $5/pk 3pks/week = too damn much money
* My health, my fiance's and my unborn child's health (don't smoke around her at all though, she knows, but don't smoke near her)
* Need to save money.
I am going to IPCPR this week with my friends, who will help me keep my mind off the nasty things, so this week will be a proving point to myself to show that I can break this bad habit.
Any words of wisdom, thoughts, ideas would be greatly appreciated.
