    Just a short note of encouragement.

    I gave up smoking in 1987. I smoked 60 a day. There are times when I still feel like a cigarette, but I would never relapse again. Even years after I gave up, I would wake up from a dream/nightmare? in which I had started smoking again.

    You can do it. The worst is over !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My boyfriend and I are going to try quitting tomorrow (Monday). We've tried to quit several times, but I'm not quitting on quitting :)

    Congrats, I know from experience how hard it is!

    Having a heck of a time last few days.

    I just keep thinking of my 8 year old who depends on me and that gives me more incentive. It took me years to build stamina to quit.

    I wish I could remember all of you by your names when I reply a post, but I can't. But thanks so much and wtg to those who have made it thru too.

    But it's really no big thing as I was just a social smoker; no chemical addiction.

    I just like to smoke at a party, when I play cards, etc. Smoked a pack a week. But once I got on the computer and played cards electronically every day, my intake increased. So I figured I'd better quit, at least for a while.

    Of course I live in LA where people say the air is so bad it's like smoking a pack a day anyway.

    Good luck to those of you who are struggling. I'm sure it's very difficult.

    Keep up the good work- I had quit for 17 years and started smoking again after I was diagnosed with fms- tried to lie to myself that it helped with the pain- not!!! I have now quit again for 15 months and feel a whole lot better.
