Smoking...

I quit smoking.
Cold Turkey.

Date of official quit:
Thursday November 26TH, 2009

Still Smoke Free as of Wednesday December 04th, 2009 -- and counting!

This thread is to help keep me on track so I don't look like a fool come summer with a cig in my hand.

Still not smoking ,even though i had a lot of temptation and desire after a night in the rain.
Not going to fail myself, I'm loving the feeling of breathing again too much!

Joe congratulations!

I'm almost 5 years smoke free and can tell you it won't be easy at first but the rewards don't take long to be recognized. I tried many times with many different quit smoking aids (gimmicks) but cold turkey was the only way to go. I'm gonna tell you what the secret is Joe.......you just really really have to want to do it. Don't let any doubts push there way back into your head. Also remember this, people say they enjoy smoking (as i did) but in actuality once you're addicted you simply don't enjoy not smoking. After 25 years of smoking a pack a day I've never felt better.

Best of luck and if i can help hit me up.

Ken

Good luck to you! A great comedian once said, quitting smoking is the easiest thing in the world, I've done it thousands of times. Make it stick man! I'm throwing out the butts once I get my Camaro. You can do it!

Righton. Keep the faith, you can do it. The number one thing you need to keep away is the DESIRE to quit! You have demonstrated that now, just don't let it grip you again. it's hard, probably the hardest thing you will ever do, but you only have one body, respect it. Sorry to be hard on you, I don't even know you, but hard talk is what you need. Be proud of yourself, you took that step! Keep it up!
best,
eB

Tonight, was probably the most tempting night and I said to myself this means to much to me. Am I going to let it control me, or am I going to accept that I've done it, accept that its time to end it, and continue to move forward.


Tonight I spent 6 hours in the rain, solid rain, covered in mud, looking for items that a person of interest dropped. I was only with one other person assisting me in the search yet surrounded by hundreds. Several of which were smokers. Frustrated with the lack of help from others, frustrated with the dampness overpowering my body, and frustrated with the cold creeping through my now weathered bones I managed to say F U to nicotine, and HI to caffeine.


Coffee is the savior of all, let no one else tell you otherwise when you're soaked.

One last thing -- Spanish Coffee wasn't; available but was my primary choice.

If you feel your resolve weaken, focus on that. Ten bucks! x how many packs? Yeah. Save your money, brother, and if it helps... think about what you could do to your SS with that amount of cash!!! You're improving your health, and helping your car.

Win/Win situation here!

Depending on the Province, that's just for one pack!

Had my last butt on Nov 28 last month. Quit cold turkey too! Hang in there and just focus on how much healthier you'll be.
