    OH MY GOSH! That was a huge habit. I'm surprised you would go cold turkey on that. How bleepin' hard must that be? Hang in there. I can't believe how much money per day that is. Wow.

  2. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Well, remember those figures are for two people but yep, we blew a lot of money on those things. And DH just told me we were paying about $3.89 for the smokes so the total for right now is $23.09. We've already just about paid for the nicotine patches we're using. 14 of them cost $24.34 so we're rockin! lol

    Can't you just visualize all of those dollars going toward bills, and saving, instead of going up in smoke?
    Way to go!

    You won't regret it....in many ways! I think it's great you are doing it together, too. Keep up the good work.

    Hi there,
    Are you using Quitnet.com???? When I read the subject line I thought, "That has got to be a quitting smoking post. That looks just like a gadget entry."
    I have been "quit" for six years next month thanks to Quitnet.com. I'm rooting for you! You are doing great!!!

  6. HelpMeFriend Says:

    Way to go. I hope people aren't harping on you, or asking you do you want one?
    Of course you do, but you don't smoke it, and that makes you a VERY STRONG PERSON. I look up to you. Again, Way to go.

    AWESOME! Guys here in the plants chew tobacco. And the patches really have worked. I'm sure it is much better doing it together. We're rooting for you!

    We're at 2 days, 9 hours, 58 minutes, 56 seconds and $27.94 now. Woohooo!

    Zenith, we used quitnet last time but the title came from a quitmeter I use here:

    It's great!

    Hey - you should use that money in your $20 challenge!

  11. DeniseNTexas Says:

    I thought about that and might just do that! It sure would add up fast!

  12. MariRDH Says:

    FANTASTIC! My DH has been quit for 2 years as of 1/1/08 and I am so proud of him. It is hard but you can do it! Smile

    Good for you so far - my husband has been taking some pills that are suppose to help him stop smoking, he started the pills just after Xmas - I still see a cloud of smoke coming up from behind the shed! His $35 a week habit is starting to bother me; he is also a cancer survivor ... what is the man thinking.

  14. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Your husband might be taking Chantix, which is involved in a lawsuit now claiming the Chantix leads some people to suicide. I don't know much about it but you might want to see if that's what your husband is taking and if so, make sure he is acting okay. My personal opinion is that cold turkey (with maybe a little help from patches or gum) is the way to go. The 'suffering' is just part of the quitting process and I think its important that we actually experience that - at least some of it!

  15. Josh Says:

    That is AWESOME! I quit almost 10 months ago, and not only have I saved a small fortune so far, but I just FEEL so much better! I noticed after I quit smoking I found courage to tackle a lot of other issues in my life, like choosing to get my finances together, choosing the exercize daily, choosing to eat well, choosing to take better care of me! Keep it up!

  16. Josh Says:

    Oh, and I agree about cold turkey working best. I tried a lot of different methods, including chantix, wellbutrin, patches, gum, etc. and found that for me cold turkey was the best. The withdrawl is painful, but it subsides after a few days and then it is really just all in your head.

    Congratulations! That isn't an easy habit to kick, especially not at that rate.

  18. PauletteGoddard Says:

    Good for you! Do what you can to keep it up!

  19. Mooshocker Says:

    God Bless you. I have been smoke free for three years this month, however, it was the first three days that were the toughest for me. Whenever you get the urge, invoke the name of Jesus for the strength to get through the craving. He will never let you down. Best of luck!

  20. denisentexas Says:

    Thanks for the support and well wishes, y'all. It isn't easy but we're working it!

  21. mike Says:

    The money saved over the years from not smoking is really a lot.

  22. HelpMeFind Says:

    I am doing my best. I have the patch and gum. I want to try the lozenges. Wish me luck!
