Happy Birthday to Me!!


Hey all! I actually made it...a year and one day off cigarettes! I have REALLY wanted one the last couple of days but I keep telling my head, "Thanks for sharing.....it will pass!" I kept remembering the pick of the lady smoking through her neck and pulled it up. It reminds me of the insanity of nicotine addiction! I have kind of resigned myself to the idea that I will probably always think of smoking but I don't have to light one up! I know how sneaky that evil drug Nicotine is....its always waiting for a trigger or a weak moment. Blogging has helped me as much as the Chantix has. I will have to keep posting. I decided to post the picture of the gross smoking neck more for myself than to shock others! Every time I want a cigarette I always think about this! If you are thinking about quitting, it really is worth it! Most of the time, I really do not miss this horrible habit!

Peace,
Diva

Fantabulous, stupendous, magnificent, hallelujah and all that jazz! Way to hang, Diva. It's okay to think about and even want, just talk yourself out of it. You have and I know you will continue. It's a fantastic feeling to celebrate this birthday. Keep breathing smoke free!

I did go have fun! I went to the Indian Casino near me, ate some good prime rib, lost some money and dealt with second-hand smoke but it didn't really bug me. I saw all my fellow bloggers make it to a year and I knew if I just didn't pick up, I would make a year. I hope to see many more bloggers finding Chantix and support. Thanks for the well wishes all.
Peace,
Diva
PS: Now if I could just get my eating back in check!

Chantix, the medicine manufactured by Pfizer Incl. is meant for triggering off smoking cessation and as it is an FDA approved quit smoking medicine, you can administer the anti-smoking drug without any hesitation and successfully get rid of nicotine addiction. However, significant chantix tidbits available at http://www.chantixmagic.com clarify that the medicine is meant to be taken only after getting hold of a Chantix prescription from the doctor.

I like your post. Smoking is bad for the health. Due to smoking many people faces the lot of health related problems. Cigarette contain Nicotine, which is not good for the health, nicotine contains some chemicals, which is addictive. Therefore, if someone want to quit smoking then for him or her it is so difficult.
