Welcome! Sounds like you freed yourself from cigarettes for all the right reasons. (Not that there are any wrong ones!)

Hi all! I quit Saturday a day before my 58 birthday. So, having started at 27, it was time to stop. My mom quit at 57 also. She passed 3 years ago at age 80 of lung cancer. I struggled with the thought of quitting smoking. Well, I would think, cancer got her anyways so why should I quit? But, I'm glad I did now. It's so wonderful not to smell like an ashtray. I knew it was not good to smoke around my dogs, so it is healthier for them now that I have stopped. I recently become a big sister to a cute 10 year old girl; I didn't want to smell like smoke when I was around her. I also just certified my Bichon Frise, Abby, to be a therapy dog; I didn't want to walk into hospitals, rehabs and retirement homes smelling ilke smoke. Everytime I think about smoking I switch my thoughts to how much I'm saving and that in 40 years I will save $73,000! (I've spent $54,750 on cigs, lighters, money to fix burnt clothing, car seats, etc.) Yes, time to quit.

Good luck everyone! I'm glad to be here.

Lynn
