I just wanted to echo Susan and offer love, non-judgemental support, and luck on your journey to quitting. I smoked for 10 years before my first and I had my last cigarette the day I found out I was pregnant. (7 years ago) It was so hard, but my dh would have killed me had I continued. We had been trying for 16 months and I promised myself and my dh I would quit immediately if I was blessed enough to get pregnant.

I stayed a nonsmoker throughout my pregnancy and my son's young years, but every once in a while I would fall off the bandwagon, especially in social situations and when something stressful happened. What really helped me was that if I cracked and bought a pack I would smoke the couple to get rid of the craving or while at the party and then break the rest and throw them in the toilet. I just couldn't have them around or I would continue to smoke them until they were gone. Then I knew that if I really wanted another, I would have to waste another $7 or so. I'm cheap so it helped. It wasn't until just recently, within the past year or so, that I noticed that it isn't the first thing I want when stressed and that I actually like being a nonsmoker. It only took 7 years! You can do this! It will be hard, there's no doubt about that, but you can do it! Good Luck!

I want a glass of wine so bad!!!!! And it doesn't help that I have a large bottle of one of my favorites in the fridge in our garage!
