Hey Susan

Happy New Year to you, too!!  It's great that you have made the decision to free yourself of this addiction in 2018 and to do so before your 54th Birthday.  It's definitely the best gift you could possibly give yourself.

As you've managed to quit for a couple of months before, you will know what to expect during the early part of your quit.  Here you will learn how to cope with the various stages and you will find many suggestions on ways to make the journey more comfortable and also to ensure that your quit is your 'forever quit'.

Many people use different quit aids very successfully.  Here's an article on chantix which may be of interest to you:

Whichever method of quitting we choose, education and preparation are very important so read and post here on the Forum as much as you possibly can.  I could not have quit without the information and support I received here.

Looking forward to hearing a lot more from you as you prepare for your quit.

Hey Bev

Happy New Year!!

I do hope that 2018 is the year you manage to quit smoking one day at a time forever.  I know you can do it.

I've been looking back through some of your old posts and particularly during November 2016 which I believe was when you started a long quit of 7-8 months.  One thing that struck me was your sheer determination at that time.  You would not allow anything or anyone to ruin your quit.  I am totally confident that you can get that determination back again.  Try to lose the 'I'll smoke when I have money and quit when I'm broke' mentality.  Just quit and stay quit whatever your circumstances are.

Looking forward to speaking to you a lot over the next few weeks.  We are all here to support you and we all know that you can do this!!!

Sue,

Happy New Year to you too!

I've been thinking a lot about that quit myself. It was hell because I was having really bad anxiety issues and I was adjusting to an additional medication. I have that under control now. So, it will be tough for a while, but I know if I stick to my guns and will reach a state of peace. There will be no smoking this year.
