    Good for you! I am still working on it. I got my ticker from the American Lung Assn. I received it when I went to a Freedom from Smoking classes.

    Reesie, I believe what you are looking for is a Smoke Free Ticker:

    SmokeFree Quitmeter

    Congrats to you on quiting smoking!!! Remember, for every cigarette you don't smoke, you add 5 minutes to your life! Amazing isn't it! Also, by quiting smoking you decrease you likelihood of heart attack by almost 75%!!!

    Doh Re: I quit smoking


    I sat down with my husband last week and figured out that between the both of us smoking as much as we did and the price going to $6.00 per pack here we were burning up the equivalent amount that we pay in rent each month plus a little! And I was wondering where the heck all my money was going!!!

    Cigarettes here in New York State are now ranging from $7 and change to $10 a pack! I finally quit on February 9, 2008, after a painful process of trying again and again. Chantix helped me enormously, but when my doctor told me he wasn't going to renew it again--and that the next battle with cancer would be tougher than what I've already survived--that helped.

    The other challenge was in my recognizing that I was smoking to deny ongoing respiratory problems I had. (I had asthma and bronchitis. Now I also have COPD.) Once I understood my effort to deny the health issues, I was able to reject the excuses and stay on my path. Thankfully, my doctors saved my life so I was able to have a second chance at living!

    Keep going, Reesie! If I can help in any way without nagging, feel free to reach out to me.

    Congratulations! I quit smoking with my husband in January 2009. I have a quit counter. Here is a link for another one. Xarka Software - Freeware Section it is the first one called Quit Counter. I have a lot of fun with it.

    Thanks for this tip, Hope! I didn't know these things were out there!

    I just found one called "Quit Smoking Counter" that you can do completely online. Talk about stunning! I've saved over $3000 in the 14 months since I quit--and have extended my life by more than 11 weeks! It's a great incentive!
