I'm a stroller.

Tragedy struck, and I started smoking again a few weeks ago. Click here to enlarge So far the only times I've been able to quit were during my pregnancies. Ack.

I'm walking 60 miles in October. With survivors. I feel like such a damn hypocrite.

I've tried the patch in the past, and it didn't help me at all. The way I've always quit for pregnancy was just drinking water through a straw and chewing cinnamon gum (I know, why cinnamon?). Anyway, I'm at a loss.

Ideas? Pretty please?

And thanks for this forum. Really. I hope it doesn't go away.

I posted to you in the stroller's forum, but I just wanted to let you know that I'm here. Click here to enlarge

Take it one day at a time. Set a goal date and stick with it. If you slip up, start over. Cut back. People say that cutting back isn't "quitting", which is true. However, smoking 3 cigarettes a day is MUCH better than smoking 20.

Just sending supportive vibes to you. You can do it. Make a plan, round up support (from your DH etc), set a date. Click here to enlarge You never know, if the water and gum worked before, it may work again. Click here to enlarge Perhaps doing that along with the patch? Or the gum?

I'll stop rambling. Just know that we are here for you. Click here to enlarge
