Everyone on this site PLEASE get a copy of The Easy Way To Quit Smoking" by Alan Carr !!!! This will totally change the way you look at quitting and withdrawal symptoms. I thank God everyday that my friend told me about this book.


Good Luck To All,

Debbie

Suggested to me by several ex-smokers, and I must admit, a cigarette tastes AWFUL to me after eating a piece of black licorice.

Warning: after licorice, a cigarette will not taste good.

I LOVE licorice... I'll add that to my shopping list today... I have to be careful though, yesterday, I mindlessly ate 2.5 servings of gummy worms! I will have to portion them out ahead of time, b/c sugar makes me nauseous and I felt HORRIBLE after those gummies, although they were awesome going down :)

I am terribly concerned about gaining weight, so I am increasing my exercise, which has lately been none, so that's not hard to do LOL! Thanks so much for your support!

Good and Plentys, ehh? I'll remember that! Day 2 here and I'm good and strong! I've definitely had some rough moments, but my plan is working thus far very well.

I do and will trust my decision to quit and not smoke in my weakest moments, I know they will pass, I just have to trust my decision.

Control your mind, control your destiny :)

Sounds good, and don't forget Choo-Choo Charlie can help you out if you find yourself standing at the counter about to buy cigarettes........go get a big box of Good N Plenty instead.

My plan...

I've got my affirmation on my desk and fridge.

Meditation, lots of fruits and veggies, patience, and most importantly trust my quit... and just don't smoke!

I can do this! Thanks!
Kim

..........because you CAN kick it, you just haven't succeeded yet. Keep trying. You WILL beat this. What's your plan?

Why can we give up our unhealthy eating habits so easily and stick with them... but quitting smoking?!?!? A whole other story!

I had a gallbladder attack, and I gave up meat and dairy like that, no problems.
I have insulin resistance, good bye soda and sugar, no problems. I can't have artificial sweetners, which I'm glad... I like not being addicted to sugar anymore!

But smoking?!?!? I think it's because you can't have one, one will relight the whole addiction and back at square one! Why oh why can't I have the same attitude? It causes me pain, it's shameful, it's expensive, it's costly ungodly amounts of pain for so many families!!!! Why can't I kick this friggin' habit?
