From people whom i know that have tried quitting this is very hard. Even harder than evening controlling BGs.

You've done great !!! Congrats..

PS: throw those cartons out. Had it been food i would have suggested you give it to someone in need. But this is Poison

Congrats on the one month! You can do it! Best toss or sell those cigs though. They can do no good lurking in your home!

I quit smoking about 13 times, but the last time was about 38 years ago. Learned something doing it too.

JT I hit two years smoke free on 12/24. Some days I dont even think about smoking anymore. You can certainly do it. I used honor as a constant kick in the butt every time it got tough. First I would say to myself that I made this decision and commitment and if I smoke what kind of person am I if I can't keep my word even to myself. Secondly as yourself is always the easiest person to rationalize or lie to, I made my quitting a gift to my wife as well on Christmas eve 2009. What kind of bad guy would I be if i took back my gift or didn't keep my word to her. If I couldnt keep my word to her what does that portent about all of the promises I made to her.

And if you don't like your spouse too much, you can always promise your kids

Today is my 9th month both living and having quit smoking. Survived my end of March heart attack and quit that same day. Congrats J.T.!!! I know you could do it!

When I was trying to cope with quitting... I would frequent a page that gave a time line for the benefits of quitting. It gave me something to look forward to as the days passed.

The below link is a good 'un:
