I'm fighting still, you?

 

Yep, today was pretty rough. But i made it through. I had some insane urges to smoke today. I read somewhere day 3 is the worse. Hopefully so. Nicotine should be out of my body completely by tomorrow, so i'm pretty stoked. Already breathe, smell and taste better. Crazy.

Not sure how accurate this is, but I remember reading somewhere that after approximately 7 years your lungs will be completely healed and as if you had never smoked to begin with. Something to look forward to.

I'm looking forward to not paying $5+ a pack.

I'm not sure if this will help you, but whenever i'm at home and craving a cig. I go outside and I throw a baseball up in the air until the craving passes. Sounds dumb but it has helped me a lot.

Going outside might make it worse. I didn't smoke in the house and several of my neighbors sit on their porches and smoke. Thanks for the suggestion

I used Floppin's advice. I put myself in my trigger situations and didn't smoke. It will make me forget about cigs faster. I went out to the bars this weekend, I drove around, I sat outside on my front porch for long durations.  I just want to be completely over them, I don't wanna not do things because there will be smokers around.

In an hour and a half It'll be a full week for me.

 

Trust me guys this is a long journey. Like I mentioned earlier I made it 3 weeks a couple months back and caved when the stress reached a boiling point (lost $2300 over some b.s. at work).  

 

Just don't ever cave and say I am having just 1. (Remember you never want to go through this torturous detox again!!)

 

Remember those things stink to hell to non-smokers which you will soon find out if you haven't already.

 

Stay strong and keep a pack of gum handy for the next couple weeks.

I want to put myself in the position to decline smoking because I've come to far.

Ive had this on my mind for a while. Im 22 and ive been smokingfor 6 years. I am joining the quitters club tonight at midnight.

has anyone tried e-ciggarettes?

 

I have a friend who has used them....never thought she would quit, but has been successful with the e cig.  Her recommendation...buy quality...do not get the cheapos at conv stores.

 

Most of the people I know who have quit have done so cold turkey. Most resorted to cold turkey after other means failed.

 

 

Besides the above...know someone who quit using Chantix. They were a very long term smoker.  No matter what you use, you have to have some motivation.  Nothing wrong with using a tool that helps you reach your goal.
