LOL! I think you may have found it, Teamie as did I and I see you have also mapped out the URL for the LIST. I eased my way into Team A membership through the encoursaging auspices of support1 despite my kicking and screaming and by this time tomorrow will have sent my empty ashtrays to Joyce's lovely Canada as casino souvenirs rather than invites to the Nikkodemon's party of the first to depart.
A click on programs found at www.copd-support.com can introduce the searcher to Smoke No More Program as it did me. as well as LGF (Let's Get Fit), Olivjia's site and other life preservers mentioned in this news forum.

You have to also have it in your mind to quit. Until you say for sure I do not want to smoke any more you might keep falling off the wagon so to speak. That is what happened to me. But I am 100% over ever wanting to smoke ever again! I just hope though it is not too late for me but I am afraid it might be!

god luck to all those of you who have and to you that haven"t I understand both sides,it is without a doubt one of the hardest things you will ever do.BUT I know you are stronger than that you just oh so need to tell yourself that. I have a 3 yr. old grandaughter who I"ve just about raised and I will tell you all I only want to see her grow up and be there for her every step of the! We are very close so I guess what I am trying to say is someone out there needs you ,buddy, and YOU need to be their. SO stand up be strong go to your Dr. get the Chantix and you c an do it trust me I just went from almost 3 pks a day to 0. It does take time but I have faith in you all and YOU can do it !!!!

it is the hardest thing i ever had to do but this too will pass. way i quit was to learn how not to inhale with every cig. it took me about 4 months to get it right every time i lit up. once that was done it was a snap for me to quit. problem was i had a lot of side effects this way. headache, diareehea, went to bed earlier at night because i knew i would cheat if i didn't. friends told me it couldn't be done that way but i kept pluging along & it finally worked. Dr told me thatever worked for me was great because he knew i had quit because he couldn't smell smoke on me & wasnt wheezing anymore. know you all can quit but it does take patience. good luck to all.

Shady,
It is definitely a mindset thing to quit. I know there are also the physical urges and withdrawals, but without the mindset of pure will and determination it won't happen.
Tell your mom to smoke outside until you move. Explain to her that you want and NEED to quit and that any smoke smell is very harmful to you right now.
You can't make her stop, but you need fresh clean air. Do not be around any smokers of any kind while they smoke.
I smoked for 33 years and stopped because I couldn't breathe any more smoke into my lungs. It was the very best thing I have ever done and accomplished in my life. We all do understand how hard it is and we also understand how you will feel like a million bucks when you quit within a short period of time.
Hang in there and keep us posted.

Keep trying anyways and good luck to you.
Open the windows and try an air purifier near where you sleep.
