Challenge Myself: Day #85 Stop Smoking

Today is Day #85 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today is to give up smoking. Many of us on this side admit to smoking too much.

The book says,

It is a fact. Many of us on this side faced with extreme stress of loving someone with this addiction problem smoke way too many cigarettes.

Find a way to quit smoking if you want to feel healthier, breathe easier, and reduce the possibility of becoming ill or are pregnant and want a healthy baby.

Saving money is another reason to quit. If you give up a three-packs-a-day habit, you'll save hundreds of dollars each year.

Nicotine addiction can wreak havoc on your health, and that will cost you more than a pack of smokes. But quitting will help you heal faster.

If you want to quit but haven't been successful, don't give up. Many smokers have had to quit several times before they were successful. You have many options including nicotine nasal sprays and inhalers, several oral drugs, patches and numerous programs and support groups and services.

Talk with your doctor, and learn more at

Now I know it says imagine the money you will save if you stop. Well two years ago when we stopped I can guarantee not much was saved because everything went up- food at the grocery store, utility bills, etc...

We wore the patches and they did work. The stresses of dealing with our son once again using led to the first light up after months. We are once again planning a STOP date.

Did you know that smoking cigarettes affects the brain just like heroin?  Read Cigarettes and Heroin
