    Yep, it's our Valentine’s Day present to each other. Tonight is our last night of smoking since tomorrow is Feb 14th. :) Also due the fact that we are in our first race (10k) next month we figured it will help us tremendously in our training! ;)

    Well, I wish you both the best of luck! I've gone down that road before myself and I can tell you that it's one of the best decisions I ever made. Think of it as a gift to your children and grandchildren but mainly to yourselves.

    Hooray for Rose and Thorn! :cheer

    I'll spare my thoughts on smoking, and simply congratulate the both of you on a wise decision. :) Whatever happens, stick with it! It'll be worth it in the end.

    Mrs E gave up over 18 years ago and I worked out that she's saved us €20,000 over that time.
    I still smoke cigars, although I tried to give up many times.

    I wish you both well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good for you. I wish I had the willpower to quit. When I saw the thread listed it said Rose and I are quitting. Scared the shit out of me. Glad it is smoking.

    Good Luck. Lets see how long it'll last. I've seen a lot of people say they'll quit smoking. They put on weight, gained a lot of stress, then went back to it after a while. :p a bit hard to just quit, but good luck.

    Good luck you guys!
    It is hard.I quit about 9 or so years ago.I haven't fallen off the wagon since.I feel so much better now.What a difference.
    Right now my other-half has attempted quitting.He's been doing well for two weeks now...but a bit crabby,I must say(but it's ok by me).
    It works to my benefit though.He's also got a lot more 'mojo' lately(not that there was a problem,it just increased ;) ).

    last year, i made it for three month.. with a lot of nicotine-chewinggum.. have bought again, but due to my work situation i dont think its a good idea to start with another try..

    but anyway: best of luck for thorn and rose, hope you guys make it!!

    As far as putting on weight it won't be a problem because we have both lost pounds recently and are going to get even more serious about it starting on V-Day for the race next month.
