Day 1 - I'm a quitter!!

At 1:00 pm yesterday afternoon, I officially smoked my last cigarette! Yes, I am a smoker! Yes, I know it's a horrible habit! Yes, I know it stinks!

I am so excited about quitting. Don't get me wrong, I have tried in the past and even quite for a full year when I was pregnant/nursing.

It doesn't take much to slip back into that old habit. And the cravings, oh those horrible, stinking, aweful cravings. They don't go away.

I'm hoping that this time will be much easier! I have always been told to pick a day and that will be the day you quit. Well, I picked the day I ran out of cigarettes would be the day. You see, we are on a very strict budget, which does not include my stinky, yucky habit. So there will be no money for those god aweful things.

I also want to quit, not only for my health and myself, but for Avari. I don't like that she knows what a cigarette is and that she is used to me "going outside for a smoke."

I also have big plans to start exercising and getting back in to shape. I would so love to be able to do that without getting winded and feeling like my lungs are going to explode.

I know it's going to be a long road but I can do it!! I know I can!! Wish me luck!!

Yes, this a picture of my last cigarette....


  1. Found you Welcome Wednesday, and I just wanted to say WAY TO GO!! :)

  2. Wow! Way to go! I have heard that Nicotine is the hardest of the legal addictive things that are out there to quit. Everyday you have accomplished greatness by not smoking. Seriously! Good job. Happy to be your newest member. Joining up from Welcome Wednesdays.
