Congratulations Tracy! That is such a wonderful accomplishment! Now maybe you can talk to my DH about this issue?! LOL! I know it's hard - I've been there myself. But after 25 years! WOW!

HUGE pats on the back for you!!!

I think I'll bring my veggie lasagna!

CONGRATULATIONS, TRACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is such a HUGE accomplishment, and I'm speaking from experience. I quit smoking about 9 1/2 years ago now but hadn't been smoking quite as long as you. It is one the hardest things to do!!

I won't be able to make the party but will contribute something decadent - how about a chocolate orange cheesecake....it is to die for!!!!

Congratulations again,

Amy

Yeah, he only smokes in one room of the house now, but he agreed he will smoke outside when the baby comes. He's tried quitting so many times. I quit for good in May of this year. But I had only been smoking on and off for 4 years. DH has been smoking for about 15 years! Trying to get my dad to quit too - he's been smoking Marlboro Reds for over 40 years! He's tried everything - the patch, the gum, the pills - about a dozen times each. I think when you want to quit you will.

So, what helped you? Did you go cold turkey?
