Hopefully the raise in April is a good one. It seems so unfair - when you were working soooooooo many extra shifts to cover them while they were struggling to keep employees. . . you nearly killed yourself! Sheesh - give a guy a break!

Hang in there, man. I just think of all we have that SO many others don't - even with things being tight. . . we are blessed!
Yes a huge cut in hours and pay! On average my pay checks are $300-600 less now! At times it could be more of a loss. The real @#$%# is that the "Chosen Ones" are still allowed overtime!! The sorry sacks of @#$%!!! Thats what really and truely pisses me off!!! I know for a fact they are getting it and when I ask I get nope can't have any overtime! What the Hell?? So I question it and they say "It isn't overtime" and/or "They are doing projects"! again What the Hell!?! Lairs!! This is the kinda crap I am now having to deal with.

In the end you are still right Jes! I still have a lot to be thankful for!!

4 smokes left! O.o
Good luck Jes! Does your husband smoke? If so is he quitting too?? In all honesty I don't wanna quit. I enjoy smoking!! Its *MY* quiet time!!! My alone time a time I really don't wanna lose!! That might sound selfish but I need that time to keep from going insane!! LoL I just need to figure out something to replace that "hole" with now?!?!

I TOTALLY understand! This has been one of my biggest problems with quitting - or rather, staying quit. Though a huge part of me DOES want it, there is another part of me that feels the same as you. It IS important to me to get that break - and I haven't quite figured out how I'm gonna get it otherwise! It's also. . . about the ONLY thing that I haven't changed about myself since getting married and having kids. I think I might hold onto it as a kind of weird 'identity' thing. I've smoked since I was a teenager! It's honestly become a part of who I am, if a not-so-great part, but still. . . what it is. And quitting suuuucckkssss!

No, my husband doesn't smoke. And he's heard me pull the 'I'm gonna quit' thing several times now, to no avail, so he has no faith in my quitting abilities, either. You'd think it'd be easier living with a non-smoker, but I doubt it's easy no matter who you've got around, lol!

I hear ya about the 'Chosen Ones.' I've had them everywhere I've ever worked. Never did understand it - in my experience, they're usually fairly lazy, and tend to muck things up frequently enough. Not sure what it takes to attain that status, but I doubt I'll ever have it!

Good luck, man! Things will work themselves out - they always do. God provides ;)

I have quit several time in the past but I would always go back to it! The quiting part for me is the easy part actually. The "never going back" part is where I always fail!!! The longest I have made it was like 6-7 months. As long as I am making what I am making I won't be smoking but in all honesty I shouldn't be smoking anyways and really need to make this last!

Hey Jes have you ever figured up how much you spend in a months time smoking (No need to share the amount. I was just wondering if you have seriously thought about it.)????
Last week I did for my wife and I. O.O
$310 if the month has 31 days. Basically $10 a day on smokes for the both of us but we never went to the store and just got smokes. Would usually get something to drink or whatever. So in reality that dollar amount is probably higher per day. Also thats assuming I was having a good day. Cause on a bad day I would smoke more then one pack!

ROFL! Now you're gonna gain 20 pounds!!! I'll take chocolate brownies, too! ;) Yeah, I've done the math - and you're right, the cig runs are ALWAYS accompanied by picking up snacks/drinks, so all in all, I'll be saving more than what I was spending on the cigs... and again - you're right. Regardless of money, I NEED to quit. I want to see my grandbabies someday! O.o Down to ONE, boy. . . 's gonna be a rough afternoon/evening/week/month. . . *sigh* I wish quitting were the easy part for ME!!!

I just notices this last part. I was half a sleep when I read the post
the first time. Jes are quiting cold turkey?!?!? O.o That's not so easy!! I usually have patches and wear each step for 7 days working my down to nothing. Walmart has some in their line of Equate. That's not to bad on price wise. I just decided this time around I didn't need them for some reason. lol I don't usually just quit wearing after 2 days. Also I have heard wonders about Chantix and ppl using Welburtin to quit smoking. I can't go that route as I am allergic to those meds! LoL
At any rate in all honesty doesn't matter what you use to quit or how you quit if you truely don't want to it won't happen or last. This is the reason its never lasted for me in the past. I was merely quitting cause ppl were telling me to or asking rather not because I wanted to. Your heart and sole has to be in it and you true have to want it.

The only difference this time for me is it comes down to smoking and not having a lot to eat or not smoking and having something to eat or more of it anyways. If it was just me and my wife that might be okay but I can't do that to my daughter. That's my motivation this time. That's something I didn't have before.
