My name is Leigh and I quit on July 24th. It has been one full week since I quit. I wanted to quit for a long time and it never seemed to stick for more than a couple of days. Its weird because it got to the point where I would light a cigarette and not even want it. I was lighting in just because, and to me that was not a good enough reason. I stumbled onto this site when I was looking for information on how to quit. I read the supportive and informative posts and it made me think that, "hey I can do this, I want to do this". Im not saying this week has been easy, because it has been far from easy, but reading other people's struggles and seeing Im not alone really helped. I want to do this, I want this to be the last time I quit. I have been smoking now for 18 years, this is probably the hardest thing I have ever done, or ever will do. Every day is a battle with myself, I have one part of me saying just one cigarette, its not a big deal, and then the other side of me saying one will lead to two, then three and so on. So far the side saying I dont want one to turn into more is winning out, one week smoke free, and Im really proud of that. Hopefully the other part of me trying to make me smoke will become silent soon, lol.
