The Great American Smokeout

Millions of Americans quit each year and I hope this year is YOUR year!
I'm 21 years off cigarettes.
I'd love to hear form you if you are planning to quit and I'd love to hear from you if you have quit! How did you do it? What support do you have lined up?

Let's chat about it. :)
Best of luck to all who is planning on quitting this year.
Just think, 2011 is on it's way and you can be smoke free!

I truly wish I were a non smoker as you. I have smoked for 40 years and find it so stressful when I attempt to quit. For the last three years I have had this nasty cough and living in NY have spent thousands of dollars on cigarettes and coughing aids. My husband constantly chides me for the smell in the house although I only smoke in the bathroom and never in front of anyone. I have run up a sizable credit card debt that should shock anyone into quitting. In all honesty I would love to be free of this addiction. I now take Chantax, have work out a physical program for myself so hopefully this will enable me to quit for good this time. I have three packs left and them I quit. Thank you for sharing.

I was disappointed to find that this event wasn't as highly publicized as it has been in past years. But knowing that was the date, this is when I decided to quit this year too. I'm 59 and have been smoking since I was 17. It's not been easy to quit, but I feel like I'm at least on the road to becoming an ex smoker.
