yes, I am one of those people that still smokes! I didn't have a cigeratte for 6 days after surgery. Didn't even want one. When I did want one, I had it. Now I wish I never had! Can I get back to the point where I never even wanted one? I have tried to quit several times before surgery, now I really want to quit! Any suggestions?

I was a smoker too till the moring of my surgery I quit cold turkey
I smoked my last one on the way to the castle and I have not had one since that was 5 weeks ago

I still want one every now and then when that happens I stop what I am doing and do something else and it goes away then I forget that I wanted one and then I can go back to what I was doing

hope you can get to be a ex smoker again real soon too

Congrats to all the ladies who have quit smoking! That is so wonderful. I know there are lots of things on the market to help with smoking cessation, but really quitting cold turkey is the best way to do it. I quit that way 20 years ago and havent touched a cigarette since. Now I cant tolerate being around it. If you have this surgery to become healthier, then what a better time to lay down those cigs! I think its great that you have all made that decision!! Keep up the good work ladies! Beth, I think you need to surround yourself with people who can encourage you and help you overcome this addiction. You can do it!!!!
