Tonight when I go to bed, I will smoke my last cigarette. Forever.

I'm telling as many people as I can, hoping that the shame of failing will help motivate me.

I can no longer use "stress from going to school full time while working full time" as an excuse. I have student loans coming due in less than a month, and I really need the extra money to put towards them. I'm dating a non-smoker who has been polite enough to put up with me for the last 2 months, but he is fully supportive of my effort to quit. I'm starting to get mouth wrinkles. My clothes smell bad a lot of the time. Smoking inside is illegal here, so I often have to leave the bar and my friends to go outside and stand around by myself for 10 minutes. It rains a lot here and I'm sick of standing in the rain. I don't want my teeth to get stained. My mom is having an emergency mammogram tomorrow because they found something and cancer runs in my family and I don't want to die young. I don't smoke in my car, and it's dumb to have to pull over or find a place to park in order to get out and smoke.

So, if you'd be so kind, dear JezeFriends, I will accept any and all words of support, stories of how you quit, and/or happy gifs.

Thanks!
