The CDC is a wonderful resource of information and support services, including; free quit coach services, if you want to stop smoking. It also provides information for helping you explain to kids why you should never smoke.

I have been quit since Febuary 14th yeaaaaa me! lol I will never pick them up again. I have quit in the past during my pregnancies, but this time I quit for me :) I told my son since he kept on and on and on about me not smoking that if he ever picks up a cigerette I will pick them back up too lol jk, but he was like I would never smoke mom :)
I stopprd smoking cold turkey 27 years ago when I reached 60 cigarettes per day ... The hard part is knowing that I am addicted (I still crave a cigarette when others light up) but for nothing in this WORLD will I go back to being a smoker. Heck, I can smell cigarette smoke in a car when I overtake it on the motorway ... OTOH, I am also the world's worst non-smoker. I have zero tolerance.
I am very happy to be able to say that there are virtually no smokers in my family and friends (when I started, nearly everyone smoked ...).
