Well I made the decision not to smoke in the house any more. When ever I would smoke, I would always make sure Puddles was in the other room, but deep in my heart I knew that it was really bad for him. 


Today we painted ceilings (3 large rooms), now we only have 4 rooms to do tomorrow. I am so tried, my neck feels like its gonna break and my ankles are swollen. Would love to sit back on the sofa right now with a  Pepsi and smoke!! 
After were finished with the ceilings, I'm washing down each room....I am crazy!! Moving all the furniture (including bed) and cleaning behind them, something that has not been done in a long time. Hope to get the house looking like it did new. Hope I can get this all finished Monday. 


I know it will worth it when finished. Walking in and no smoke odor....mmmmm. The secret is that I'm really doing it for Puddles, but not telling any one. Want him to have a healthy home with clean air (worried about him more than us). 
But it's also helping me to quit 


Have a great Labor Day all......maybe yours will not end up like mine (work work)

It's bad for you too, Mama! I remember those smoking urges from many years ago. I don't know how you feel about this, but I gave up smoking many years ago after praying and promising God I wouldn't anymore. It was easy. It is a lot harder to break a promise to the "Big Guy!" He has blessed me soooo much.

Congrats to all you who have given it up and BEST WISHES to all you wanting to!

You are so right in what you say. As you know we were both on Quitnet.com and we made it though.

I can tell you what we did with our money. My DH and I quit April, 19, 2001. We each have saved a little over $11,000.00. With the $22,000.00 I bought a small pickup truck, glassed in a screened in porch and put some ceramic tile in the kitchen.

One thing you might want to look at is Buergers Disease. For those of you who might not know, it is fingers and toes getting cold and either looking white or blue. Bottom line, poor circulation. The difference is with Buergers you have to have fingers and toes removed. My DH got lucky, HE QUIT.

Imagine this? My hubby had to quit, I DIDN'T. How dare he have problems. When your a smoker you do NOT want someone else to forcing you to quit. That just isn't fair in your mind. Smokers love to smoke, they use every excuse in the book. STRESS being the biggest excuse. We all have stress!!!! Actually, smoking makes the stress ten times worse.

IF YOU really want to QUIT, YOU CAN. Think of not smoking as giving up a habit. Cigs are NOT your best friend. They are your worst enemy. Trust me you will love yourself more, feel better about your self, and you will have more time on your hands to do things you don't have time for now. Your brain will feel strange for awhile because it won't be spending time planning when you will get to smoke again. All smokers deep down inside don't like smoking but we all have excuses because we are afraid of failing. Most smokers try many times before making it. It's ok. The time will come when you do quit and you will never look back again.

I would never put someone down that smokes because only someone that has smoked truly understands. It's not easy but nothing in life is easy, we have to work hard at our jobs, our marriages, and even harder to raise our children.

Best of luck and if you need any tips please PM me.

$22,000.00 is amazing! Back when I quit, a pack was probably only $1.40?? How much are they now, something like $4.00? That sounds like motivation to me! Congratulations to you both!

I really don't think anyone has the right to bash anyone for smoking especially if they havn't ever smoked themselves.  It is a very hard habbit to get rid of and no one will ever quit until they are ready to and when that happens you can do it. nagging a person to quit just won't work. You have to want to. I wish you all the success in the world and if you want any support please just pm me.
Time Smoke-Free: 1738 days, 22 hours, 33 minutes and 43 seconds and darn proud of it
