Peter Jennings

Ah.  I love Lifehacker.
I’m sure many of you know Peter Jennings died of lung cancer this past Sunday. He’d been a smoker until about 20 years ago, successfully quit and then had a relapse shortly after September 11, 2001.
 
They then go on to name a few stop smoking resources.
I’ll add one:  Quitnet.  Quite the community there.  If you smoke and want to stop, you could do worse.  Strangely, though, after a while, fixating on quitting almost creates the atmosphere that you need to re-start.  Watch that if you are a smoker that wants out.
 
I’ll share:  I smoke, and have for too damn long.  My daughter has never, EVER seen me smoke and I don’t intend for her too.  For some reason, though, probably pure fear, has made this Peter Jennings thing have an impact.  Hopefully it will last.  I’m not saying that I quit smoking, I just decided… what the Hell, I’ll give it a shot. 
Wish me luck.  Or don’t.  Not sure which kind of luck I’d get, with this crowd!

    It’s a long hard road…but wuitting is so worth it, for your daughter, for you, for your check book. Granted, I quit qith the help of major surgery…but it has been SO worth it.

    I did relapse at about 6 months… but knowing I NEVER smell like a smoker, and have pleasant breath to kiss the weeone goodnight with…

    It’s not luck – it’s strength, so I wish you strength, my friend.
