  • I quit 3 months ago. Been drunk a couple times around friends who smoke and haven't stumbled once. I was sick so the first week was the easiest. It's amazing how just today I get the strongest desire for one.
    It gets easier with time.  I'm just over 3 years cold turkey.  Every once in awhile I will be on the deck, or in the yard.....somewhere that I used to really enjoy the act of smoking.....and I will comment to my wife that this would be a great time for a smoke.  Sometimes I'll even bring my fingers to my mouth, suck and inhale....hold and exhale a few times.   But I've not smoked one since I quit and I don't see myself ever doing it again.

    It's been now over 8+ years for me and I can't remember the last time I thought about one.

    That's great. I can't wait to get to where I don't think about it. I'm just like dogalum; certain triggers. I can taste it and feel it coursing through my body. I'm really glad I'm a quitter though. Still haven't gotten off my butt and started losing weight though

  • Been quit for close to 3 years now.

    Second attempt
    First Attempt lasted about 3 weeks

    Trust me when you those people say "its all in your head" it is!

    On both occasions I used Chantix's (1 month round) but my head was in it the second time around, I truly wanted to quit.  Wife smokes and it doesn't bother me, I always said that if I can quit I will NEVER pick them back up again.

  • No excuses, no help, just going to do it.  I was a non-smoker before and I'm going to be again. 

    Also going to start P90X soon along with Shakeology.  Can't wait to get started and see some results. 

    Looking to dump 40-50lbs and keep it off.  Making some major lifestyle changes.  Wish me luck.
    Will you smoke my bird, first?

  • Two things I did when I quit 21 years ago. I was a pack a day smoker on average and they were 2.00 a pack. Every day I put 2.00 in a shoe box and put it on a shelf in the closet. I never took money out and on my one year anniversary of no smoking i took the money out and paid for a week vacation. The second thing I did and I believe this helped more than anything, I took plastic straws and cut them into cigarette size pieces.I put one in my shirt pocket and when the urge hit I would take the "cigarette" and smoke. Inhaled the clear air,flicked the ashes,hold it between the fingers etc. I would do everything with that straw I would do with a cigarette except smoke. It may have been a psychological thing but it worked for me and several other friends. Good luck. You can do it !
