My fellow Angels, I need to give up these demon cigarettes. They are killing me. Tomorrow is my quit day. Please post any encouragement here and I will post my progress. Perhaps you all can give me a good karma for each day I go without. I've done it before, for years. I just gotta give em up for good. With your encouragement, I just know it will be easier.

Sending positive thoughts to you Julie. Use those two beautiful daughters as inspiration.
I have heard it is difficult, but you are a strong Angel-Woman!

JUST DO IT CHICAGOFAN! NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS! JUST DO IT!

Something to focus on this: 30 days from now, celebrate 1 month without a cigarette. Then do the same 6 months from now and then a year. It worked for a friend of mine and he's been celebrating his quiting smoking every year now for 20 years! It's one of his favorite days of the year.

Rogues always have Angels' backs!

Hi Julie!!! I know its hard. I quit years ago. St.Patricks day I was around cigarette smokers all day. Even second hand smoke does damage. I ended up with bronchitis. I'm still taking Antibiotics and feel lousy. Do yourself a favor and quit... you'll just feel better. Marty Party

Julie,

I don't believe in the karma thing but I just bumped you up because this is the nicest post I've read in a long time. Cigs are hardest thing to quit. It's a great gift to yourself and you'll do fine. From all I've read and heard about you, you are a strong, smart beautiful person and can do anything you set your mind to. I'm so happy!!!

I've never smoked but I have been told by a few people that drinking grapefruit or orange juice helps. Something about replenishing the vitamin C. I guess it couldn't hurt.

If you go to Wanee, introduce yourself to me please. I want to give you some matchbooks Once you see these, you will never want to smoke again.

Sending some positive, non-smoking vibes your way, Julie! Good for you! I think cigs are the hardest thing to leave behind but I know you can do it. My sis just celebrated her year anniversary of being cigarette free a couple of months ago. She's my hero - so are you!

It's 5:00 a.m. PDT and 7:00 a.m. CDT. No cancer sticks today Chicagofan! If you start jonesing for one, log on to Big Daddys. We'll chill you out. If you can't log on, think of a your favorite Gregg song and just groove with it. Keep The Faith!

Okay, today is my first day. Put some of my strategies in place. Only brought my train ticket and lunch to work. Only enough money for my newspaper. None to buy cigarettes. Gotta few nicotine lozenges with me (hate em but they do take the edge off). Rubber band around my wrist with my dear friend Patrick's name on it. He died a few years back from COPD. When I think of smoking, I snap it. First three days are the worst. With the help of God and true friends........

Smoking(not smoking) is the only thing I'm really militant about; I'm always happy when someone has made the decision to quit. You're doing a great thing! This is the best decision you could've made for yourself (and for your loved ones). Millions of people have quit,you can too!

Day two almost complete and am doing okay. Reporting here to you all is really keeping me on track. I thank you for the faith, kind words, and encouragement. After tomorrow, the nicotine is pretty much out of my system, it's the habit that now needs to be broken. I've emptied the ashtrays in the car and filled them with poupourie. Been snapping my Patrick rubber band as needed. I sure do miss him but think he is a true Angel looking down and cheering me on. Need to be verrry careful over the weekend. I get time on my hands and fun going on and can easily mess up. Plan to do my walking both days and stay busy. I do so appreciate all your help.

Keep up the good work Julie. Keep thinking Long Term! It can help you get over the short term issues. There's nothing wrong in avoiding places or people that might make certain habits easier. You do what you have to do! Keep the faith! We're all rooting for ya!

This guys quit cigarettes and who knows what else.
