    Hi Cathy,
    I just want to wish you the very best of luck. I am 50 years old and have smoked most of my adult life except for a three year period back in the 70's when I had my babies. After trying to quit a few times over the past two years, I have been a non smoker now since October 31. I am amazed. I am using patches. I also used self esteem building meditation tapes for the first couple of weeks, plus lots of prayer. I could not do this on my own. I know you have to WANT to quit or it will not work. My IC pain is almost completely gone these days, but I don't know if thats from not smoking or any one of the other things I'm doing - whatever the reason I'm grateful!!

    HiCathy
    I have been smoking for 20 years and I know the challenge you will be facing. I just quit a few days ago by starting the zyban medication. I have tried everything and I am praying for God to give me strength to kick this habbit once and for all. Cold turkey is tough and personally I could not handle the physical withdrawls and this medication cuts that practically down to nothing. I hope we will succeed and become non smokers...God Bless

    Hey Cathy,

    good luck, if it doesn't work cold turkey, try the patches and zyban. A friend of mine quit after 20 years of smoking, I was getting pretty naseous from the smoke. I smoked for 6 mos ,ten years ago, stress from the death of my spouse, started feeling crappy from the smell, and hard to breathe I quit before I got really addicted. Best of Luck on this. Happy holidays.

    Quitting Jan. 1/ join me?????

    Hi,I'm a 30 year smoker...on again off agin...Never smoked during either of my pregnancies and short time after them. Also, have quit a feww times lasting weeks...to months. I and a co-worker have set Jan 1 as quit date....Been psychologically working towards this for awhile......I'm hoping that who knows tha maybe wuitting will even help the IC some. I'm a nurse and see alot of older folds with chronic lung/heart/COPD etc. It is not a fun theing the struggle they make every waking moment to get a breath and related anxiety. I'll be coming here for support when I quit...I'll need it..I really want to succeed for good this time. No patches....pills...gum.etc. planned..going cold turkey......did that before.....Help me.......ok.....thanks...love ya cathy.......P.s. Anyone else want to take the challenge with me Jan.1?
Working...
