I was just talking with my mom about this today. I'd LOVE an easy answer to quitting. I've quit twice before, with both pregnancies, started back with both before delivery. I look at my two toddlers and think, "okay, idiot, if ya wanna see them grow up, ya gotta let these cigs go...". Then I light up another one
I quit smoking pot with no problem. I quit drinking with no problem (was never a heavy drinker, though). For some reason, the damn cigs just have a hold on me. My father, a 5 pack/day X-smoker (you know he's fun to listen to), quit about 15 years ago. He rides me constantly and he asked me, "Do you not feel just a LITTLE stupid for LETTING them run your life??". Wonderful psychological approach, just didn't work on me. I wish they'd outlaw the damn things. I swore up and down, years ago, if the price ever got as high as they were in Canada that I'd quit. Well, it's there and I'm still smoking.
It's terrible to love something that you KNOW is killing ya!
