The thread: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/help-me-quit-smoking.160142/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/help-me-quit-smoking.160142/[/URL]

You guys were so supportive in my quitting thread, that I have been smoke free since May 2! Everyone's posts and encouragement made all the difference for me, and I appreciate it! :wavey: I would waver, and then someone would point out another reason to quit, and I would turn a corner. Thank you!!

Yes, apparently, I was smoking so much :oops: that by quitting and putting the money in jar, I saved enough to buy my first Chanel bag! Actually, I have to stay off the cigarettes so I can pay for the other half of it, but still . . .

Bought at Saks, so it's no doubt the real thing (warning, there are so many fakes on the net, it's just amazing!)

You guys totally rock!

Plus you wouldn't believe how the salespeople at all the stores just love me now, even if I don't buy anything. ;))

Problem though, DD wants one now . . . :shock:

Yay iLander! I quit on May 28th & have been totally smoke free too. Maybe I need a new purse too :rodent:

I love the bag you picked. And I'm so impressed you quit cold turkey like that! (I'm still using my e-cig some, but no tobacco whatsoever since May 28th.)

Helluva reward!!!! Congrats!!!!

Tell your daughter she can have one when she can pay for it. And maybe when she's ALMOST there you can kick in the rest for her time well spent saving.

Good job, LGK!! :appl: :appl: :appl:

You should totally treat yourself to something big; that you can point to and realize that you like IT a lot more than you like cigs. Life is short, enjoy it more!

You give me too much credit, I can't do the cold turkey thing, the victim/body count of my unhappy relatives would be WAY too high! :lol: I am plain nasty without some kind of crutch! I am down to 1/4 of a nico patch and I am trying to reduce the hours spent with it. Also, I suck on a lozenge about 3 times a day. It could be YEARS before I am completely off the nicotine. My aunt spent 7 years chewing the nico gum! My DH (who is also quitting) uses the E-cig when he's having trouble, but they just make me want to smoke more.

Congrats, LGK! :bigsmile:

CONGRATULATIONS! :appl: What a pain it is, isn't it? Really pretty awful . . .

I think you really should treat yourself! Get something outrageous, that you wouldn't normally consider.

DH pushed me into getting it, and he's right, I do look at it and think I don't want to slide back into smoking.

great support from your hubby! i really like the idea of partial reward for time not smoking and motivation for not sliding back.

actually, one doesn't give up an addiction w/o replacing it with another "activity".....i think you found yours!

congrats!
