    YEAH FOR YOU! KTQ!!! (KEEP THE QUIT)
    Me too. Been quit for 6 weeks!
    Lost 8 pounds so far too, so don't believe all the crap about gaining a ton. I just really watch the food and exercise. It is so great to be a nurse that DOESN'T smoke!!

    Good for you, I have never smoked so I can't know the addiction you face but I once had a patient that was a reformed heroine user tell me that it was easier to quit heroine than ciggies.

    ^5! To Granny!

    I quit smoking 'cuz I started having bronchospasms. I still sometimes miss it, but the habit is not worth the sicknesses and eventual deaths it causes.

    When people tell me they want to quit smoking, I ask them if I can pray for them. They tell me, "Yes", & then I lay hands on them & pray for them to be delivered from smoking, from nicotine & they tell me they never smoke again.

    Greater Is He That Is In Me Than he That Is In The World.

    I quit 3 years ago after smoking for about 30 yrs. Was hard, but I made it!!! What keeps me from starting again is now I can smell smoke on the clothes and in the hair of my grandkids (their parents smoke). It about breaks my heart! I couldn't smell it when I smoked. I also just lost my mother to emphysema, smoking-related. I did definitely increase my butt size, too, but that's alot less risky. I also don't miss trying to sneak out several times during my shift to puff, don't even think about it anymore. Thank God!!

    CONGRATS
    I quit 6 years ago. I too became part of the "wide Load" group for a while. Soon you can get it off. But I am one of the ones that will forever miss it . I do not miss the smell or the diminished exchange. But there are some days of stress that I do think of a cig. Just keep on trucking. I used the patches and Wellbuterin when I quit. It worked for me! Yea For You !!!

    Congo rats to all of you that kicked the butt habit! My sister quit too, but only after she wound up with throat/lung cancer...thankfully she is in remission (so far!).
    As someone else in this thread said, your lungs will thank you! I smoked for about 8 years and quit when I got pregnant...it's not easy but it's very possible!

    Good for you Diane!!

    Dec 1 I celebrate my one year anniversary. Today, I can't believe I smelled like an ashtray for so long! LOL

    I wish you luck. Like Heather said, I feel better, my food tastes better and my behind is bigger.....(that's my next self-improvement project....getting fit) Not smoking is wonderful!

    Hang in there!
