I love crocheting, but I have come to think it’s one of the best things in the world. I have quit smoking 3 times by crocheting.

The hardest thing about quitting is keeping your hands busy. I found that crocheting kills 2 birds with one stone, you keep your hands busy and are able to create beautiful items.

The first time I quit smoking I made it for 5 years…then I got a divorce. The second time I quit for six months but I let work stress get to me. Now I’m on my third time…and so far it’s been a charm.

Crocheting is what has helped me stop smoking. Also the last time that I quit smoking I learned the joy of working with different weights of threads and yarns. I have crocheted for over 30yrs and had never tried to use any materials other than plane acrylic yarns.
