Thank you for the story and encouragement to the "quitter who never quits"! I like that you cherish your prized possessions ( your heart and children) and considered them to be the upmost importnant under your mental and economic situation. Thank you, That has been motivation for me, a 1st time mother -to- be that smokes but wants to quit for the sake of my "heart" also.View Thread
Hello raevoigt3805, Firstly, congratulations on you quitting smoking! I think that your body is begining to regulate its hormones again and clearing the toxins from cigarettes out of your body. I have been a smoker for 10 years and am around the same age as you and have had up and down acne problems and I believe that it is due to my continual habit. Just stick with your washing night and day regime and I believe you will see your face clear up- also stay away from the cigarettes AND the smoke. Good luck.View Thread
