    Join the club Diane. I am on my 2nd week and I'm doing pretty good using the 7mg patches. I smell better (I hope!) and yes, food tastes good, but I have started working out and it has kept me from gaining so far.Actually have lost 3 pounds
    Keep up the awesome work Diane, and all you nurse quiststers!

    My as* got wider, but my chest got unlocked, so I was able to breathe deep enough to work it off.

    I quit for good about a year ago. Luckily I didn't gain any weight. Only thing is when I go out to bars, I'm still smoking the equivalent of a cig or two...Now if I even have a drag, I wake up coughing and phlegmy.

    Keep up the good work all you recent quitters!!!

    Two years, nine months, two weeks, one day, 15 hours, 54 minutes and 37 seconds. 20393 cigarettes not smoked, saving $4,333.39. Life saved: 10 weeks, 19 hours, 25 minutes.

    This is the quit meter I keep on my puter all the time. The amount saved doesn't even consider that smokes are now around $5.00/pack. Congrats to all the quitters here.

    Hoooooooooray for you !!!!!!
    Now it's my turn. Kinda scary, but I've insisted that once I graduate, I REFUSE to be a nurse who smokes.. can't think of anything more contradictory. So... I've graduated and all that's left is the NCLEX..."don-tarrrran-don..." oh noooooooo !!! And my DON at work has already reminded me of my "personal goal" I had told her about 3 years ago..(quitting after I get my RN)... darn, she has a good memory !
    So keep it up, Girl, and when it's my turn, you better be rootin' for me, too !!! It's either cold turkey, or the patches.. can't decide. Can't handle the gum... makes me wanna puke!

    Nursedianne-Right on! I quit in 91-Eventually put on 25#, eventually took that off (then some) It was all worth it- I feel great It's the number 1 thing you can do for your health! You will be a great role model for your patients.

    Congratulations, Nurse Dianne!!

    I KNOW how hard it is.........I gave up when I was pregnant/feeding my 2 young girls, but slipped back into it.........when I went back to school, and my excuses are running out........I have to go through that pain (again) of giving up.
