A: Do you know?

well I am sick of smoking quite frankly and this image is the icing on the cake...not that I'm vain...but damn...does it show or what...

I quit for 4 years a while back...was easy, ..but forgot to remind myself under pressure that you're only one puff away from not being quit..

so blahblahblah I am quitting on my father's birthday, feb 11th.....a tribute of sorts to my dad triggered by mayette's recent tributes to fatherly love.

meanwhile...toke toke toke that cigarette...

In the I quit !!! photo essay.

Also in the a year of self defacement photo essay.

    You COULD pay a tribute to your father by quitting TODAY - then you'd be smoke-free by February 11!! Seriously, good luck - I know it's not easy! This is a great shot!

    it's not easy. i did quit for a while. i've been smoking for like 5 years...and i want so desperately to quit. but right now with my high stress level i can't i just can't. i tried so hard this morning not to stop and buy another pack (the one i had only had 1 left in it) but i failed. something i'm good at...failing that is. but seriously aunty p. good luck, and many prayers for you to be able to quit. i'll cross my fingers. HUGS!, and this is a neat photo.

    Good for you, Peggy!! Oh gosh...another X-smoker.....OY! :P I "stopped" for 3 yrs once....but started again. I have known so many people who died within a few months after quitting....it scares me. I know that's stupid....but it does.

    Hey Peggy, you can do it. I did 20+ years ago. Now, I detest the smell of old smoke, dirty ashtrays, etc.

    You set a quit date. Good move, Peggy! Go for it and never look back.

    . . . L'alcohol em destruirà el fetge
    i les arnes la pell,
    el fum els pulmons
    i els homes el cervell.
    Podreu fullejar els meus somnis,
    grapejar els records
    i estripar-me plors i versos
    jocs i amors.
    Però no pas aquest poema volador i petit.
    . . .

    oh pilar, alcohol has ravaged my family and I stopped drinking quite a long time ago...I guess anything taken to extreme, even the salt of the earth, is too much.

    Right there with you Peggy. I quit the day after Thanksgiving..grrr. Tried the patch..(har har) but it gave me crazy dreams. Nicotine gum seems to work. So far! ;)

    I wish you the best! I quit drinking but the quit smoking is kicking my butt. I can't stand the smell of them either.

    What a shot! Something positive came of the habit anyway. That could be a powerful, if unusually artful anti-smoking billboard. Let's work on that. Good luck to you. 21 years since I quit. Plan on taking it back up around 82.

    Good luck. I know how painfully hard giving up anything is. I know nicotine is one of hardest drugs to kick.

    Superb photo! Believe me you can quit, where there is a will there is a way, you have to make a definite decision. I quit 40 years ago and now hate the smell and everything about it. Good luck Peggy, I know that you can do it!

    Dearest Peggy, I feel your pain. I've been on Chantix for 2 weeks now. I've cut down to 5-10 a day but at certain times it's just plain hard not to. I am never going to quit trying though. I'm pulling for you big time! You go girl!!! Rah rah ree kickum in the knee, rah rah rass kickum in the....other knee! Peace and be well my friend. D

    You can do it! My entire family (parents, sister, brother-in-law, me, even my grandmother!!) quit smoking around the same time many years ago!!
