For those of you who do not know me, I am Holly. I am 27 years old and am married to Scott. I have 3 beautiful children and we are TTC #4.
I am a smoker. I have been smoking on/off since I was 14 I quit with my pregnancies. Well, I cut back to 1 cigarette a week maybe but not any more than that. I am now so sick of smoking and am trying to quit. I am down to about 5 cigarettes a day. I find my asthma really acting up, especially this time of year and I am sick of smelling of smoke. We do not smoke in the house or car anymore (I am sorry to say we used to) but where I work they do not want you smoking outside so I have to go into the breakroom where it is completely smokey.
So I am here to try and get ideas to help me quit smoking.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
I think the cutting down is the first step!
Then just finding things to keep you busy and replace it. Like when you want one, instead have a peice of gum, or buy some baby carrots to eat...
It will start to cut it down more.
Start doing something with your hands. like cross stiching.. it keeps your hands busy and the concentration will help you with not wanting one and not realising how much time has passed since you did have one!
Sounds like your ashma is a good thing at the moment, if its motivating you to quit. But like chelealamb said try doing something with your hands when you would normally be smoking.
Also dont make into something harder than it is (i know its hard though) but reward yourself. Just because your giving up something bad doesnt mean you shouldnt be rewarded for your hard work.
