Do it for your Family, and do it for us, you sound like a Great and Honest Person and Friend, we will appreciate that you stay in this Forum much longer.
One of this days, if you don`t quit, your lungs are going to get sick and will not be able to recover, are you going to regret it like our friend did ?
Today, is the day you quit, if you really want to live longer, there is no other way around it, there is no other choice. With respect, and best wishes, a friend.

I would suggest taking your full 90 day perscription cycle of Chantix. I "fell off the wagon" several times, after being smoke free from 1-2 months. Psychologists say it takes at least 90 days to break habitual behavior. Smoking is addictive AND habitual.

I couldn't take the weird mood swings and sleep cycles. Chantix never again for me.

Good luck to you! I don't smoke, but I just quit dipping snuff. Started dipping 20 years ago. I have been snuff free now for 4 months! I only miss it when I am hunting, fishing, or working. Yep.....pretty much all the time. It has gotten a lot easier though. I don't think you ever lose that craving. Wish you the best of luck.

bdrake, I heard some of those stories too, you got me on that one !!! But the Math you can`t fool, 300 bucks will pay for my Jeep which I sold to send the kids to College, but I don`t smoke, so I had to sell the Jeep to use the payment for them money eating creatures and their school.
About the Avatar, I used to have a lot of fun in the Rate the Avatar Forum, until my Lady came along and prohibited me from doing it, she said; "If you go there and have that kind of fun, I`ll step on your banana". Here is a picture of her...

i know many people who stopped taking after the first month, and are now smoke free 5+ years. All depends on the person. I wanted to quit, knew I could if I got help to get over that horrible feeling I got whenever I tried cold turkey. I got over the feeling, kept forgetting to take my prescription, now I don't think about either. I was in a club this weekend for y wife's birthday. It's called the tobacco company (ironic for me to be hanging there now) but it was also for my wife's 10 year high school reunion. Anyways, they allow smoking inside the club. I was in there smelling the smoke and kept commenting on how I couldn't believe i did something so disgusting that smelled so bad. I honestly believe I have broken it. It also helps I have people who question me every day asking how any days now, did I smoke and when I say no, they give me positive reinforcement telling me how awesome that is and how proud of me they are. I quit, I don't want to start this process over, I'm done with it, FOR GOOD! With what my son said to me (he's also the reason I bought my jeep) I am done. One of those stories like where the crack addict just woke up one day and walked away from it. I don't want to be apart of it. I broke the cycle (my grandparents and my parents smoke.) it can be done. All about the persob


Drake, holler if you just need someone to holler at, I'll be the punching bag that keeps you on this wagon with me!

im doing ok. I know what you mean about the burning. A week after I quit I had some friends over, and we were going to play a little football. I ran the ball one time in a sprint, not very far either, I wanted to die. I laid on the ground and begged for a cigarette so the pain would go away lol. It's not fun! It gets better, I just walk a little but every day (mainly because I want to get a little into shape) but also so I can build up my lung capacity again. I am up to 1 and 1/2 mile a day in a 30 minute brisk walk. I used to be able to run a mile in 5 min 45 seconds, back in my last year of high school, oh so many years ago, so not pleased with that 30 minute time, but I keep building it up.

But the exercise thing and the burning, I know the feeling and it passes. I used to play baseball in an adult league, 2 games a week, and would smoke, and play like a non smoker.

Last part of his post, the damn honest truth lol!! I'm lucky my wife quit same time I did, she did cold turkey, I went chantix, well I was the calmer person, and she smoked a lot less than me (she went through a pack every 3 days). It's totally worth it, first month sucks, I am towards the end of my month (day 24) it's getting better! Still sucks though!!!

Started smoking in the 7th grade. When I turned 15, my dad gave me a carton of Camels for my birthday, saying "If you're going to smoke, smoke at home".....also that it's not good for you, but you're going to do what you're going to do. Got to be a 2 pack a day smoker and tried to quit several times, but unsuccessful. Fast forward to 31 years old and putting my firstborn in his crib....I decided that I wanted to see him grow up, marry and have kids (my dad died when he was 47 years old and I was 20) so I decided right then and there to quit. And I did.....cold turkey.....no help from nicotine gum or anything else.
I still dream of smoking, and I wake up pissed off at myself.
But.....
I love and enjoy my 4 year old grand daughter !!!!!!

My quit day is tomorrow. I am a bit scared, but I really want to see my 2 and 4 year olds grow up. With my father passing this year at just 65 years old, it was a wake up call. I had quit from jan 1st until my father passed unexpectantly at the end of April. The hardest part is that my wife and mother in law who live with me are both smokers and my wife doesnt want to quit. Plan for me is a calendar with $5 each day, come January I can buy my hurricane fender flares i also have patches, gum, and an e cig (no plan to use the e cig long term, tastes pretty aweful). Im also going to put a picture of my boys as many places as possible as reminders.

Bdrake and turbo, congrats to you both, you are doing great!

Remember, you're just one cig away from being addicted all over again. That's all it takes.
Best of luck, it will get easier.

There are an endless number of crutches available to help kick a smoking addiction....just like any addiction. The e-cigarette is a real popular gimmick that just gets you hooked on an unregulated crutch. Then there's gum...patches...shots...alternative substances...lots and lots of "distractions from the cravings".

Do whatever you need to do.

Research has proven time and again that the best way to quit....is to actually decide to quit. Get into the mind set of "I quite. PERIOD." not "Im gonna..."

Nobody is gonna chase you down the street and shove a cigarette in your mouth and light it. YOU have to buy it...YOU have to carry it...YOU have to light it.

If YOU decide to stop doing that...then you stop smoking. Its a decision. Its a tough decision. You're fighting against chemistry and biology and even fighting a little bit of psychology (peer pressure BS).

But look at it this way. If I strapped on a mask and broke into your jeep and said "Im gonna steal your stereo."...you'd fight like hell to keep me from succeeding. If I dressed up in a giant cigarette costume and said: "Im gonna...kill you...then Im gonna kill your wife...then Im gonna kill your mother in law....oh and then Im gonna kill both of your kids. and it aint gonna be a fun easy kinda killing...its gonna be a slow, hacking, coughing, choking, suffocating kinda killing." Odds are you'd probably put up a pretty good fight against that, too.

Im not trying to stir up $hit. Just putting things into perspective. Every single thing you do teaches your kids something. That is inescapable. The only choice you have is WHAT you are teaching them. FIGHT for what's important to you.

Cute little factoid that might help provide a bit of motivation...just in case nothing else does....every year more Americans die from tobacco than died in ALL of world war 2. Statistically, cigarettes are 740 times more lethal than guns.

Its a choice. Choose wisely.

If you get weak and light one up...that sux...but it aint the end of the world. Put it out and don't follow it with another. If you slip and fall, get back up.

Hang in there....it gets less difficult after 10 days.

Good luck...its worth it.

yeah I have found weekends are the hardest! You're sitting down, not staying super busy, so your mind wanders! If you're to the point of your body walking outside, or reaching for a cig (where they would normally be) you're almost there! That was the last thing I had to break before I was able to just keep it out of my mind. I also like to think, in 3 days I will have saved

First, Im glad my rather blunt analogies weren't misinterpreted. I often get accused of being "indelicate". Just trying to cut to the chase and say what needs to be said.

Second...I wasn't even talking about cancer. That is only one of a great many ways tobacco can take you out. With the exception of two suicides, every other member of my family who has died...has been taken out by tobacco. No, not some weird little ailment that might possibly be associated in some bizarre way to smoking. Killed by direct medical effects of smoking.

Of all those corpses...only my dad had cancer. twice. Cut out the first one. Didn't catch the other one in time. Oh...he was blinded by Macular degeneration (partially related to smoking) and crippled by emphazima, humiliated by colo-rectal cancer, a decade before he drown to death from the hemorrhaging squamish-cell carcinoma in his lungs. Doc found it...said you've got two months. They were right.

Fortunately squamish is fast. Slower cancers metastasize into other...less merciful cancers that get into the bones (that kills you in years)...get into the brain (think: rapid-onset alzymers)...pancreas (there's a hefty done of excruciating pain for ya).

Being around others who smoke will make you want to smoke too. If they don't care about themselves enough to quit, imagine how little they care about you. Quit them too. Doing that (and meaning it) might just save their lives too.

K. Ive been on my soap box too long already. I'll stfu before I really get wound-up.

Keep fighting the fight. Keep teaching your kids to do the right thing, ESPECIALLY if it is difficult. And when you stumble, get back up.

I think about a cig everyday.

I gave them up in Feb 2013, 2-1/2 to 3 packs a day. Just stopped cold turkey. I want one every day.

I can tell you how long a steak takes to cook on the BBQ by how many cigs I can smoke. I can tell about things on my job, home many cigs till the job is complete. How many cigs it takes to drive from point A to Point B.




I miss the cigs, BUT,,,,,
  1. I don't miss paying for them
  2. I don't miss coughing all day long because of them
  3. I don't miss the way I smelt of smoke all the time
  4. I don't miss not being able to smell other things I wanted to
  5. I don't miss how my vehicle use to smell each time I got into it
I am sure I can go on and on about it. But I think it gets my point across.

I quit for me, no one else. I wanted to feel better, and maybe live longer. It sure is nice to not cough all the time too. My wife is a smoker, but I still don't smoke. Once in a while I might steal one or two of hers once a month. But that is the extent of it for me now. Damm near everyone I know smokes to, And, It doesn't really bother me at all anymore. That's their choice, not mine. I am happy with mine.

I miss it, but I don't too.

It takes commitment on your part, you have to do it for YOU not anyone else. You have to want to quit, no if's and's or but's.

As for those E-Cigs, they taste awful, they get you hooked on them. Anything that says helps you quit, doesn't really, its just a substitute delivery system.

So Congrats on your progress, we will always be smokers, just not smoking

The money I save from not buying cigs, now goes to Jeep Parts

Off my Soapbox now

So I didn't believe the whole "things will taste different" but I'm sitting here eating lunch today, definitely different
