It is my mom's 82nd birthday and I don't know of a better gift to give her than for me to quit smoking - this was my thoughts this morning.
I really have wanted to quit for me for awhile and have had a lot of days of not smoking and then a slip and then I get right back up and start again as I just do not like this.
I am quitting today for myself, but using my mothers birthday as an added incentive. I don't want to loose this date - not one puff ever as I know deep down I will never be a controlled smoker - God knows I have tried!!
A friend sent me this saying ......if you are sick of starting over - quit giving up!
I will probably enter my entries in the evening from now on as that is usually my roughest time and I do a journal entry each morning that I have committed to and have done really well and am not going to give that up. With working I only have so much computer time in the morning.
I have become more health conscious and this smoking is just not fitting into that picture.....it is time to say goodbye forever.

I am SO happy you are back and joining me on this quit. Yippee! My grandmothers birthday is also the 2nd April, so we both share a family birthday on our quit date.
Stay strong and big hugs!!
