    My dad smoked for eight years, and quit when I was six months old (my mom has never smoked); so my three younger brothers and I were raised in a smoke-free home. Not one of my parents children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren are smokers--or have ever been (as far as I know). I remind my dad of that every Father's Day, and thank him for quitting.

    I just said to a friend this week..."never quit quitting" when they got down on themselves yet again for not being able to quit.

    I quit for the 2nd time 5 yrs ago, and will never look back. It's the best gift I could ever give to me.

    MaMere - love your quote at the end of your posting. I feel it is also the best gift you gave to the rest of the people that know you, too. icon_biggrin.gif

    Never smoked,but understand the addiction. My parents both smoked, and none of us 6 kids do. My father had quit many years before he passed, but my Mom smoked her last cigarette walking into the hospital 24 years ago this month for her open heart surgery. I'm happy to have her here. My Dad died 25 years ago, so Mom having heart surgery right after losing Dad, was a little much to handle. But, we made it through, and on Tuesday Mom will be turning 77!!!

    aww...God Bless your Dear Mom, wish her a Special Birthday from me too, and my your Father Rest in Eternal Peace.
    Both my parents smoked, Mom quit the last yr and a half of life, and Dad had quit some 20 yrs before he passed. I have to say, they both lived long healthy yrs though, 84 & 79.

    I quit (3 packs a day) cold turkey in 1988, no relapses, but plenty of dreams of smoking, still. I love me some secondhand smoke.

    Just keep trying. Even if you fall off the wagon. Pat yourself on the back when you get back on.

    Just keep trying, don't be a quitter when quitting, tomorrow is a new day.

    Some people are cold turkey, some are slow and steady. Don't let anyone tell you your doing it wrong. One less ciggy a day is extra time.

    Just Keep Trying.

    I agree with Dib's and MaMere never stop trying. There is no right way or wrong way, just whatever works for you.
    Becky, give your Mom a big hug from me tomorrow.
    I quit about 5 years ago. You know that this time I didn't note the year, month or day...I just quit. I used the patch.
    DH on the other hand is still smoking about 6 a day. Though he hasn't quit,
    he's cut way down from his past 2-3 packs a day. I don't nag because it won't do any good. When it's time he'll know.

    I smoked for 30 years, almost to the day. I did not want to quit, but I finally put on my Big Girl Pants and quit Cold Turkey, January 11, 2009. Wish I had done it sooner...

    My last smoke was Oct 17, 2012, about 7:45 PM. Over a period of several months I'd gotten down to 1/2 smoke a few times a day from my original 2+ packs a day (quitting smoking in the house and having to go outside to smoke helped me cut way down).

    I used a combination of Wellbutrin SR and an e-cig. The final week, I just made a game of it. I challenged myself to wait longer and longer each day to have my "first" smoke of the day. The last day, my first smoke of the day was right after dinner that evening, the usual 1/2 cig. I decided at that point that that would be my last one. I do still use my e-cigs, though.
