Good luck. Nicoteen is tough to kick. I quit smoking for about 6 months awhile back with no patch ect. But the only problem is I ate like a pig and gained 20 lbs. I started smoking again and been smoking every day since. It would be much easier if I wouldn't ever have started, didn't smoke till I was about 21.

That's great Henry!
You are over the hardest part.

I smoked for22 years. Unfiltered Camels, roll yer own Bugler and Top, Prince Albert in a can but my favorite was Marlborough lights with the filter broken off. As much as 2 packs a day. If I was out I'd smoke butts from the ashtray. Yeah I'm a bum.

I quit a couple of times using patches and chew and pipes and none of it worked. Then in early November 2000 I just stopped.

It took about 2 weeks before I didn't have a craving every second for a smoke. That was the hardest 2 weeks of the whole thing.

I will be smoke free for 6 years in about 5 weeks and I can breathe, my wife says I smell better, some things work a little better than they did when I smoked and I'm not letting my money go up in smoke.

yeah I gained 53 pounds, so? (265 is a better fightin' weight for me anyway)

Leave them cigs alone. I watched my mom and her husband both die from lung cancer. It was not pleasant.

I know it is hard to quit smoking, especially in the south. When I was there it seemed like everyone smoked.

Keep up the good work

Later, mikey

Great! You will feel better in the long run. I quit, cold turkey, over fifteen years ago and it was tough. I dreamed about smoking for several years, some of those dreams were so real I wondered if I had had a cigarette when I woke up. They went away with time. I had a lot easier time when I quit drinking booze.

Just think how many hot rod parts you can buy with the money you save. Keep it up, it is worth quitting.

I quit cold turkey 25 years ago. Had dreams about it afterwords also.
Keep up the fight and you will be glad you did. I chewed gum to help with cravings.

I don't know what your talking about jessie, I am smoking one right now and it tastes like sheet, just like every other brand does. But still got a smoke em anyways. I can't believe I started on salem menthols, like smoking a big pine tree. Now its marlbro lights when I am feeling rich or generic non menthols most other times. When I first tried quitting, i switched to ultra lights the first few days, that was like, well smoking paper. Keep it up henry. Hope you kick the nasty habit for good.

Hang in there Henry! It's tough, I know.

Gonna be seven years without a smoke for me in November.

I found the tests to be in threes: three days, three weeks, three months and three years.

That is some good advice. What helped me was dedicating quitting to a coworker who had beat cancer once and was awaiting results of a biopsy. (Turned out negative.)

My hat's off to ya!

Keep it up, you will be glad you quit.
I cannot relate to struggle you will face, as I have never smoked cigs. I remember when I was growing up, being stuck in the car with my parents as they smoked, I swore that I would never start. As life goes my daughters were the ones to get my parents to quit. They were born 13 weeks premature and had lung development issues..if the parents were to be around them they could not smoke, not even somewhere else in the house. It worked, has been 14 years and they have no regrets.
