    O My Goodness - well cigarettes here go for $50 a carton so I was going on that figure and thinking a couple of cartons would buy the bio-orb. I guess they vary from region to region.

    Good luck and sorry about the grapefruit juice suggestion. It seems to have stirred up quite the topic of conversation.

    Yes just the idea of being able to buy it (because of the extra money) in the first place is so darn refreshing

    Yes, how is it going. Today is a RED LETTER DAY. Three Weeks! Keep it up (with or without the juice. I think the cranberry would work as well but it does have a lot more calories )

    Have a good day.

    That's the only bad thing -- i don't find myself eating alot more, but i did (since i have quit smoking) go back from diet soda to regular soda. I guess i am probably looking at it the wrong way because the way i see it as I need to reward myself some how. but I still haven't gained any weight.

    I did move down to 14 mg of nicotine yesterday, and I don't feel any withdrawal symptoms from the lower dose at all!

    Good for you! I have tried to keep up with things as you go through this. It makes me so proud of you to see you hanging in there.

    How is the cranberry juice doing or have you given up yet?

    Good going, I won't say good luck, I know this takes work - keep up the good work. ;D

    Thanks everyone for caring about little old me hehehe..

    BTW I have been eating alot of ice cream lately, lol I don't know what is up with that, but I am stopping that junk this coming monday. I am going on a diet. I have been lucky so far that I have only put on 3 lbs, usually a quitting smoker puts on like 10. so I figure before i gain more weight i will take it off!...

    The cranberry juice is so good, I drink it alot now -- in addition to taking Vitamin C supplements (because smoking just totally wipes out your vitamin C Supply, so i figure it couldn't hurt). Thank you all very much though! 1 month, and 4 days!!! i didn't think I would make it this far at first, but now I don't think i will EVER EVER EVER go back, and i don't want to! hehehe
