Today is the first day...

Well today I stopped smoking! I went and bought the patch...had my last smoke and slapped that patch on my arm! I don't know why but just in the past few weeks, I just don't want to smoke anymore. I have wanted to so many times before but only went a day or so and broke down. This time...I WILL QUITE! I put away all the ashtrays, lighters, and cleaned my house. I want to be healthy for my kids and live long enough to see my grandkids!! I don't want to smell like a cig any more. I don't want to be attached always making sure I have my smokes with me. I thought about it and I have been smoking for 25 years! I know this will be the hardest thing to get through and I am scared. I am worried that I won't be able to do it. It's been sooo long that I don't remember how it was to NOT smoke. For all of you reading this, I would love some support. Well it's been 1 day down and the rest of my long life to go!

Hi, Lisa - First, thanks so much for following my blog!! And I want to let you know that you will make it not smoking! I smoked for around 40 years (I am 82 and grew up in the 40's!) and I actually enjoyed it. In 1992, I finally decided there was no place to smoke anymore, and, like you, put on a patch on May 21st year, and never smoked again. Hang in there, dear, you will succeed! Hugs, Carol
