    They are sugar coated marshmallows made to look like chicks, or bunnies (for easter) and other shapes for other holidays. I don't like marshmallow, so I think they are icky. Loads of people love them though.

    I can't imagine spending that kind of money on cigarettes! Instant raise if you quit!

    One of the mistakes I made in an early attempt to quit (and yes, I was a very heavy smoker) was not keeping a visual of the money I wasn't spending on cigarettes.

    Putting the actual physical money in a clear glass container and seeing it grow every day is a very powerful motivator!


    My last attempt to quit (nine years ago ) was successful! :9: I used the visual, patches early on, and a very powerful emotional motivator. I "dedicated" my quitting to Herself's Da who we lost 9 years ago. I could hardly go back and light up now, could I?

    That's what finally worked for me. Mind where you place those patches though!

    You can do this Siobhan!! Ten weeks is a huge head start! It's just a matter of forcing a change in associations now. I know I had to change EVERYTHING I did that was connected to smoking... took a bit to root out all the triggers, but when I did, I squished them quite satisfactorily.

    Just come here and holler for help if you need any!
