    Don't ever be apologetic about asking for prayer, that is the purpose of this board. I shall ask that you be given special strength to over come. My son in law quit smoking so many times, but yesterday, April 5 he celebrated 5 years of being smoke free. What shocked me was he said he probably also saved 5 to 6 thousans dollars.

    Prayers and a hug from a 1/4 Irishwoman.

    Quitting smoking is a hard thing...I did it 30 years ago...best thing I ever did, but it is hard. I will pray that you can do this.

    Thank you for including us in your plans...support is always helpful when undertaking a hard thing.

    Praying for you and your ability to quit....!

    Hi irishprincess!
    I will certainly pray for you to quit smoking. I know how hard it is also. I quit a little over 2 years ago. Sometimes I still can't believe I actually did it. I pray for everyone I read on this board that are trying to quit because I know the struggle and that you've probably tried and failed several times as I did.

    If you can keep in your mind that everyday that passes without a cigarette is going to make you so much healthier than the day before. You can see noticeable changes pretty quickly when you quit. I also had to put aside the idea that I would probably gain weight and as I was told the extra weight is a lot less deadly than the cigarettes.

    Good job for taking the first step to even think about quitting. Stay in prayer and God's word and I will for you also.
    Take Care
