Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

I quit smoking January 1st, 1998! (It wasn't a New Years resolution, but I'd just found out that I was pregnant) Congratulations. It's one of the hardest addictions to kick. I'm proud of you!!

Congrats! It's the hardest, but best, thing you'll ever do -- besides parenting, of course!

Oh, and after trying for years to get pregnant while I was still smoking, I finally conceived just a couple of months after quitting.

Smoke free for darn close to five years,

My husband quit two weeks ago as a present to our youngest. It was his first birthday.
I am incredably proud of him. He's only 23 but has been smoking for 11years. He's had a pack a day habit for the past 6 we've been together. And he just quit cold turkey.
So congradulations. and Keep up the good work !!!

Congrats! DH and I quit smoking February 28, 2005.

He's had a much easier time of it than me, I still crave cigs daily - but my little princess is much more important to me than nicotine!

Congratulations! I've been smoke free since May 18th, and it's the best feeling. I love to wake up every morning and not hack up a lung.

Stick with it, you can do it!! The first week is the hardest, do your best to stay away from other smokers. And try and stash away $15 or $20 a week in a jar, in a year you'll have just over $1000 to spend on yourself

I quit in January 2001 and DH quit the following month. We've both been smoke free since! I can't imagine smelling like smoke again.

You can do it!

Congratulations! I quit ten months ago with the help of http://www.quitnet.com/ and http://www.whyquit.com/ it's been so awesome! I started smoking when I was 13 and quit when I was 41. I'd only quit one other time before and only for four months. I don't count my pregnancies, because something about my hormones and changes in my body chemistry made cigarettes taste and feel nasty.

The funny thing was that all those years, I kept saying I couldn't quit because I was going through some crisis or another and I just couldn't handle one more major bit of stress. About two or three days into my quit, I threw my back out and literally couldn't get out of bed for a week. My car was undriveable, but it only needed about $100 worth of work and my family started tearing me apart emotionally when I asked if there was any way I could borrow a few bucks under the circumstances.

The only thing I could feel good about myself for was my quit.

It took a lot more rehab to get my back working again than it ever had before, but after improving my diet and starting some very basic exercise (first walking a few blocks every day no matter how much it hurt, now riding a bicycle across town twice a day) I feel fifteen years younger than I did when I smoked.

At four days, the drug is out of your system but it's normal to still have cravings and temptations and to be an ex-smoker first and foremost. It's an exciting and wonderful thing to be! I'm so happy for you!

Woo Hoo! How wonderful! Keep at it and don't give in. You are too good to smoke. That is a mantra I kept saying when I wanted a cig. I just played a mind game on myself and said that I was too good for smoking. I have been smoke free for about 2 years now. I am so proud of you!

Great!

I quit for New Year's this year. It was about the hardest thing (besides parenting a newborn) I have ever done. It is still a daily struggle but so worth it. This is the longest I have stayed quit in 15 years. Now if I could just get dh (who only smokes "socially") on board.....

You Rock!

I quit June 2001 after 15 years of one pack+/day and it was the hardest, but best, thing I've ever done!

I do still dream about and crave cigs every once in awhile, but being healthy and free of that addiction is way more important than picking up a cig again.

Congratulations! Keep posting your progress and if and when you feel like you have to have a cig.

Unfortunately I didn't quit until the day I actually delivered my first, but like my doctor said, "Better late than never". After multiple tries throughout my time smoking, I am proud to say that I rarely even think about smoking almost 3 months later.

You're doing good though so just keep it up.
