Thank you for the response. No, I haven't digested enough information yet to assign a start date. It may take a week or so for me to absorb and grasp the process as a whole. I did discover a new link that should come in very helpful. It involves ionized water, raw LIVING food, delicious juices and the wonderous detoxing superfoods of spirulina and chlorella…and you can  start to repair all the years of damage done from smoking.

See this link..the cells replace themselves in less than a year. Check this graphic out, along with the advice attached...

Welcome to the forum, Preps! Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking. I smoked for forty years and tried quitting numerous times. This forum made all the difference. 

Debbie is absolutely right in advising you to read everything you can about this addiction and the quitting process. The more you know, the better your chances are for success. Here's a great place to start.

Getting Ready to Quit:

What are Your Reasons to Quit Smoking?
Why am I Afraid to Quit?  
When is The Best Time to Quit? 
How You Can Prepare to Quit 
Quit Aid Choices 
Supplies to Have On Hand When Quit Day Arrives

Yes, quitting smoking is hard, but it is absolutely worth it. One of the things that amazed me was how quickly the body begins to heal.

You can do this, Preps! I'm glad you're here. blush

Hugs,

Andrea

Hi and welcome to the forum! My name is Leigh, nice to meet you blush  I know how hard it is to pick a date to quit. I used to pick days way in advance and then when that date came I would postpone it for some lame reason (stress at work, big sports playoff game that would involve drinking etc... always something)… My best advice, just stop. Just don't smoke for the rest of the day.. if you want to smoke tomorrow... you may find that tomorrow you want to extend the streak until Wed...  just try not to smoke. It does not have to be forever, just don't smoke now.   You will soon learn that you can live without smoking. Actually, you live better. Fact is, you will live your best life as an ex-smoker. Be your best, Prepsetc.. don't smoke today!   P.S. - I quit somewhere around 265 days ago.. it can be done! Good luck!

Thank you for the reply. I have a hypnotherapist coming tomorrow to teach me some tools to use, plus I just ran into this course a Facebook friend sent me to check out.

Hi there and welcome to this amazing forum.  I have had a few quits, one which lasted for 3 years, but I smoked “just one cigarette “ and it took me another couple of years to get myself back into the right mindset. I am now in my second month smoke free  

My method of stopping smoking is that I read Allen Carr’s Easyway book and everything he writes I agree 100% with. I definitely recommend this method to everyone.

Welcome to the forum, Fairy Cake! Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking!I 

My best advice is to read everything you can on this addiction and the quitting process. The more you know, the greater your chances are for success. A great resource is our Quit Smoking Library. Scroll down to this folder in the column on the left under DISCUSSIONS.

You'll find two additional folders, Dots and Stars Milestones and One Year and Beyond Milestones. These are posts from forum members celebrating reaching milestones in their quits. They offer tremendous inspiration.

Take this one day at a time and post often.

Hugs,

Andrea

You can do this Fairy Cake! I'm glad you're here. blush
