OK... That's it.....

I have been semi-sick for the last two weeks.... I wake up coughing and have nasty sinus drainage rolling down my throat, and it doesn't get much better as the day goes on... So what is the first thing i do in the morning? I go outside and smoke. What kind of idiot goes and makes himself feel even worse in the morning and all day long while he's sick? What kind of idiot does it take to be hacking up a lung between drags off a cigarette? So this morning, I bought my last pack of cigarettes. Tomorrow morning, I will wake up and not smoke. I quit. I'm sure I will be just a friendly bundle of joy around the family during Thanksgiving dinner, but they'll just have to deal with it. I'm sick of making myself feel like shit. I'm sick of spending the money on such useless crap. I'm sick of my wife not wanting to come near me because I smell like an ashtray. So today I am thanking God for taking away my desire to smoke. I will succeed this time. Today is my last day as a smoker. Ok... I've typed enough.... time for a smoke break.....

Good for you. Everytime I pick up a cigarette the next day I swear my arm goes numb...it's scary.

from a non smoker to a smoker, thank you!
there's a book by alan carr, i think, that has helped millions of people in the uk quit smoking, apparently you just read it and then never smoke again. good luck and stay strong, you can do it!

Do it for your daughters sake if nothing else Guppy. My mother died at 49 from lung cancer, it is a horrible way to go.
Best of luck with quitting.!!
