I started smoking when I was 9....(yeah I know awful, but believe it or not stores do sell it to kids that young). Anyways as soon as I realized I was pregnant I quit cold turkey and haven't started again. i still get those cravings, but it's crazy how gross smokers stink once you have quit.


9? Wow.


Yup! Bad I know. Someone should have knocked me upside the head. My kids won't get things like that by me :D

Shea just remember that the mood swings will go away, I quit with champix in 3 weeks thats from 2 packs aday my wife also quit at the same time there were a few mood swings but we got through it.
Good luck

Thanks Nubs,
I will let you know how it goes when I start. I pick up my meds today, so I will start taking them tomorrow morning. I may have lots of questions for you in the coming weeks. Thanks for your support!
