Great job on quitting smoking. I quit over ten years ago and haven't had cravings for almost as long. The first couple of months are the worst, especially as you accommodate your habits, in addition to the nicotine cravings. But it's a great step toward your overall health. It does get easier. One thing I always said is that there's nothing beneficial about smoking (no vitamins, health benefit), and since it's a carcinogen (causes cancer) there's no reason to do it. I also liked the philosophy that you can still take that break five minutes every hour!

I smoked for 29 years as well and have just decided that enough is enough. If I am going to changed my lifestyle to be healthier, then how can I justify smoking as well. I wore the patch for the first day and that was it, my husband sells electronic cigarettes and I will use that once or twice a day. I had to change my eating habits with this as I do not want to gain ANY more weight! Gave up alot of things that go hand in hand with smoking such as coffeee and alcohol sooo off to a new year and a new lifestyle!:-)

Default Too late to join?

Is it too late to join? I've been looking for something like this to get into but haven't yet found it until now. I have just started to get serious about my weight loss. I am a 26, male, 6' 2", 323 lbs. I am hoping to get down to a weight that begins with "1" anything after that would be great!!!
