Thanks man!...that would be cool...I still can't believe I did it. I didn't realize exactly how long I did it for until today. Long time with that routine.

I quit cold turkey at AMVIV of all things in 2007. It was tough, but I got though it. Most of my friends at the time smoked as well as my parents. So I blame the second hand for helping me get though those first few weeks. After about a year the cravings went away. It sounds rough, and it was, but I'm happy I quit. Best of luck to you and take it a day at a time.

Bravo!I always thought that it's more habit than nicotine that makes it hard to quit & stay cig-free. In case you'd have moments of urges, just go stay inside your MINI. I presume you've kept it smoke-free?

Thanks very much...
Cold turkey is the way to do it!...that's what I did, although not with a ton of people like at AMVIV. I congratulate you on that feat of strength

That presumption would be correct!...I never smoked in my MINI. You're definitely right, breaking the routine of "I need to be outside right now smoking" was tough those first couple days.

Congrats, dude. My girlfriend of about 3 years and I are going through her quitting (for the second time) but this time the deal is that she needs to have had a clean cut from the cigs by the time that we move in together at some point in January.

Congrats!

I quit on Nov. 4th and I only cheated once a couple of weeks ago.

I have two unopened packs I haven't been tempted to open.

I can't say I feel better and I'm surprised I haven't been hacking up any lung cookies from the ol' lungs trying to rid itself of the crap I'm sure that was in there...

I can say that food does indeed taste better than ever and so does beer.

I was trying to talk myself into having one last night because I knew a friend was coming over that smokes, but once he was there I didn't really care to join him.



What I've found with quitting is you just have to do it and be ready to do it.




Also, there's a GREAT book called "The Easy Way To Stop Smoking" By Alan Carr


Good luck!!!

For me, it was replacing it with something. I started Crossfit back in August, and quit that same week... Haven't looked back.

Congrats!

$9 a day goes a long way, that's $279 you were flushing down the toilet every month!
