Good luck to all of y'all.  Not that you need a reminder of the worst case, but i lost 2 of my grandparents to smoking related issues (cancer in both).  Both of them only in their Early 60s.  That's YOUNG if you think about it. 
Don't forget to still get a good check up from the docs.  Damage could already be done, but at least they can catch it sooner and do something about it.

Well Im drinking now, As I was also last nite.. Will power my friend.. This is something you have to really want for yourself. Doing so for anyother reason means failure. Last time I tried to quit (5yrs ago) it was for a real Love in my life, It didnt work and we arent together anymore either, Still great friend though and she always has a Place in my heart as do I in hers.  Point is you HAVe to want to do this, Nobody else can do it for you. You also reap ALL of the benefits also..

Win Win situation If you can do it..  And you CAN DO IT. Failure is not a option..

Good to hear you are being honest with your self icon_salut Everybody keep posting up your progress. Knowing your not the only one trying May help the others..

I did good till about 1pm today and bought 1 Cigar. getting easier to lay them down totally everyday. Some are using the patch which I found doesnt really help all the cravings that go with Quiting.. Tonite starts a new trial for me as I get back to work.
  Smoking used to be a way to pass the time while sitting in the drivers seat all day..

 coffee2 Here is to tomorrow. The First day of the rest of Our lives.. Keep up the courage and will power notworthy

Got up this morning and put on my last patch.  Now I have to decide if I should buy more patches or if I can tough it out without the extra help.   dontknow

I do pretty well when I don't wear one, so I think I'll give it a try.  If the mental period only last 3 days, then I think I should be able to handle it.  It has been over a week since I've lit up.

Friendly suggestion Tracy:  Stick with the full course of the patches...

Can you tough it out?  In ALL likelihood yes, but what's the point of cutting it short other than saving the money?  You'd potentially be making a VERY difficult task unnecessarily even more difficult, right?  Take the nicotine dose afforded by the patch whilst dealing with the mental part of the addiction... the step-down doses afforded by the full course of the patches will wean you off the nicotine.  Afterall, a full course of the patches is still waaaaay cheaper than the actual $$ cost of smoking.

Im having more trouble with the Mental sides of the issue myself. I found myself holding a Ink Pen like a Cig earlier. and get satisfaction at times from just tasting a Unlit Cigar. Im still breaking down once in awhile and taking a few puffs of the cigar. More for the lingering taste than the Nicotine I think.

Not trying to justify My Insobordination here but 1 cigar a day is a lot better than 2 packs of ciggerettes a day. And so the fight goes on.. Gotta kick it completely BangHead BangHead
