quitters? (new non smokers, old non smokers)

Good luck! 

 

I quit just over a month ago and totally turned to food.  I'm slowly getting that under control now.  I didn't gain anything, but I'm not used to eating non-stop like that and my grocery bill's going up! :)

 

But on the flip side, my grocery bill's going down because I essentially quit drinking completely to help with the nicotine cravings.

 

So yeah.  Right now, I do still miss it, but it's the habit part more than the nicotine part.  I'm still avoiding hanging out with our big group of friends because they all smoke and I don't want to be around it, I don't want the temptation and the smell is just horrid to me now.

Congrats to you Allyson!!!  One month is a big milestone!  Is this your first quit?

No it's my third. eyesroll.gif  I quit while I was pregnant with both boys and started up again after I quit bfing. 

 

But this time, I did it all for me.  I was turning 30 and decided I didn't want to be a smoker any more so I quit for my 30th birthday.  Hopefully it'll stick this time and I do think it will since my mind is made up this time and I have no real desire to be a smoker again.  It's just getting through the trigger situations for me.

I quit nearly two years ago but will smoke one on very rare occasion...

 

If I am out with the girls having a beer it's hard to resist!

 

I am still BFing though and if I do have one I feel so guilty. I quit when I found out I was pregnant.

I've quit smoking a number of times. I started when I was 19. I quit for a full year once, and for three years when I was 25-28. I most recently quit the day before Halloween. I had one cigarette since then, on January 22nd I think it was, and that was giving in to stress without having another outlet for the emotional stress.
