I just took the last drag off my final cigarette.

I am determined this time to FINALLY quit after many failed attempts.
I realize that the money and effort into smoking can be put into other things that are more useful and beneficial for me (and healthier!)

I plan to battle this addiction by placing all my energy into the things that I need to accomplish anyway. I know I can do it this time!!!

Wish me luck :)

Good luck, I gave up smoking 16 years ago, can't stand to be around smokers now. I had made many attempts before, but until I had really made a decision myself, and not one that others had try to push me in, it was in futile.

You can do it!! I never smoked my hubby did. He quit 11 years ago cold Turkey when we brought home our son from the hospital.

Now he cant stand the smell when someone smokes around us.

I encourage you to MAKE A COMMITMENT to stop smoking.

When we set our mind to a commitment, we are more likely to follow through rather than just say I am determined or going to try my best.

You can do ALL things..including this :)

My commitment is to use the money I spent on cigarettes and apply it to my blog :)

Your determination will take you there. You can do it! Just ask for the Lord's guidance and He will lead you to the right path.

My Aunt right now is in hospice and they just took out her feeding tube. Her cancer is closing in on her wind pipe and they could barely jam a special order trake (sp?) into her to breathe.

She is not expected to live for another 3-4 days. She's in Ft. Worth.
Very sad situation. The last 10 years she fought with cancer of the mouth, jaw, and tongue.

All due to smoking.

Congratulations on quitting. It will save your health and money!

Quitting bad habits not just help the person who is shunning the bad habit, but it's surrounding community as well. That's a great decision to quit smoking habit. Good Luck!`

And if all else fails, try hypnotism. I hear it works wonders...;)

You have made an awesome decision for your life!! Just continue to pray and surround yourself around nonsmokers. Its all in the mindset. When you feel the urge just tell your mind and body no! The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. You can do this!!!!!!!

For years my Mom had struggled with trying to kick the smoking habit. She became a christian a few years ago and decided to give it another try. She posted a note on her refrigerator that said, "Do Not Smoke. Ask the Lord and He will help me through it." So every time she struggled she went to the refrigerator, read the message and prayed. A calm would come over her and before she knew it she had quit and doesn't even have the urge. It doesn't even bother her to be around other smokers. She has been habit free for four years.

Awesome! Hats off to you. I know how hard addiction is. I can't even stop drinking my coffee! No joke...although I realize it probably won't kill me, it's not the best for me because I have such a sensitive nervous system and I'm dealing with hormone issues. Congrats, to you. If you "mess up", hop back on the train the next day.

I know you can do it! It is hard the first few weeks, but you can get there. I quit smoking 30 years ago and so glad I did. The funny thing is now I have the smell of cigarettes. So expensive now I would need another job to pay for them. I am cheering for you!

You should also look into setting up a rewards program for yourself; use the money that you are saving by not buying cigarettes to fund it if necessary. A year of smoking can easily cost more than $1,800 so you have a generous budget to work with if you are working towards permanent results. Just be sure to look for things that you really want to help encourage you.
