    Yes, best of luck on this
    Yes, best of luck on this important step in your new, healthy lives! I stopped smoking over 35 years ago...and I did it actually ONE cigarette at a time~ which then multiplied into 2, 3 4 5, cigarettes etc until voila! I had quit smoking cold turkey without having to think about it!

    Hugs, and happy easy breathing!

    Good luck guys. I quit 20
    Good luck guys. I quit 20 years ago with a patch and a kid who laid a giant guilt trip on me.
    Get yourselves a kid who cries and says you're giving her a headache everytime you light up. It's foolproof.

    Good idea Kat
    Good luck to everyone on quitting smoking. Trust me, it is way easy to do when you think of why you are doing it! I know you'll make it. You better, because I don't have enough frequent flyer miles to come kick each of your arses if need be. OK, your safe 'cause I don't have ANY frequent flyer miles!! Last time I flew was sooooo long ago that they use to let you on a plane drunk!!! (And put really cute male stewards next to you to hold your hand!!). :) Pammy

    Thank You Alll
    Thank you to everyone.
    Day 1 and I have failed. The day just started bad and got worse with my onco visit. I was on edge when I woke up today and it has evolved worse...perhaps my gut told me it was going to be and unsettling day.

    I am currently not even in survivor mode and and, with the smoking thing...feeling like a complete "quitter" on "not smoking".

    (Sigh)
    I know I'll dust off & bounce back when I can digest & accept.

    Hope you all can do it. You
    Hope you all can do it. You have had one cancer, you don't need another one. I know it is hard, but, try to get your mind set how bad it is for you.

    Good luck!

    Thank you Kat and everyone else too!
    I had a rocky start on Thursday, (smoked 2 before I remember what day it was) but I'm doing okay today. I had a close call earlier after a little spat with my mom, and I'm having trouble getting my patch to stay on (HaHa) but I just keep rubbing it to make sure it's still there.

    Thanks for thinking of Us.

    And don't worry KC you'll get on track, even if you have to put it off for a couple of days! We smokers understand, this is not and easy thing to do:)

    I quit 21 years ago
    I know that, because I had morning sickness so bad with my first baby (21 years ago and she is now 20) that I could not smoke; I chewed Nicorettes instead. I am not suggesting that anyone go out and get pregnant! Nicorettes pulled me through. I am a gum chewer to this day. Giving up cigarettes is hard, but we are cancer survivors - we can do anything! xoxoxo Lynn
