Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
Hi there

I haven't smoked for more than 8 years now; quitting was hard work but I am a stubborn individual and that helped!

I value my independence and smoking was dependence.

I still crave cigarettes some times; but is not an issue in my life any-more, It can be done and loads of people are doing it; take courage and continue in your efforts to stop.

I tried to stop many times before but was not successful; until I was successful in the end.

It is easy to stop; staying stopped is much harder! but it can be done for sure.

Day 4.

The first three were absolutely unbearable. Migranes all day it honestly was the worst physically and mentally I have ever felt..ever.

Today is day 4. I was pissed off the majority of the day. The non-stop crazings of the consecutive days ceased. I'm still very much struggling with this. (Smoked 7 years/First time quitting).

Migranes come and go, I feel a lot better than yesterday. I just hope I don't go back. It's my vice. Taking public transit and when I walk outside, it feels so natural for me to light up.

I do feel cognitively better as well, like a lot better. I no longer feel dragged down like I did, it's very noticable.

I just hope I can keep it up.

Edit: I'm going at this cold turkey as well. Was a pack a day up until Friday. Only had the patch for the first three days (my stepdad is quitting as well so I borrowed a couple). Can't really afford patches or meds or even cigarettes for that matter. But I'm taking big steps in my young life to better myself and this was a big one as well.

Just a few days shy of four months over here.....

For me it was A. Resolve to quit and B. use willpower to stay quit

And if it weren't for RicRoc posting the links [link to media.wix.com]

I don't think I would have had the success that I am now enjoying

Smoked for years and years and it was having bad effects on my breathing so trying to quit. Took Chantix for nine days, then said to hell with meds, and going it alone. Haven,t had a Marlboro for over two weeks, how -ever I do get the urge several times a day, but the urge is getting farther apart and easier to get past. Wish me luck. Maybe this can become, "SMOKERS ANONYMOUS" thread. Update, after almost three months I am still smoke free. Yes I still have the occasional urge but it goes away quickly. Proud so many have reported quitting in the many pages of this thread. Please check the following link, it is a great asset to quitting. DF [link to media.wix.com]

You have the power within you to improve your health dramatically by quitting the smokes. Read how others have done it here, you can do it too. For your sake, do it now, because the bad effects of smoking only gets exponentially worse the longer you smoke. Wishing you success when you decide to join us on the quitters ship. hf DF

Thank you, everybody. And to you fox, for creating this thread. It's truly an awful experience thus far, I'll have the time to actually talk in depth with you all later in the week.

Going into this (about to begin day 5) I'm heading a lot of advice from past posts. Thank you for all of your insights. Fox, I have started that book as well. Going into it has me a bit skeptical, as is expected stated from the Preface. But I will continue to read it all the way through.

Will update as soon as I can (hopefully tomorrow afternoon). I really like and appreciate that this thread has turned into a support group/family kind of setting and I'm excited as well as extremly thankful for that.

Talk soon.

Quit Jan 1990. Smoked 22 years...damn! Things that help me through. It's a pain to run out and have to go buy a pack...It costs so damn much. I smelled bad...my smell boughter other peolpe near me...my breath stinks...my teeth were stained black...my hands were stained yellow...they burned my eyes...they burned my carpet and funisher... burned car sets and rugs ,almost get in a accident when I dropped them in my car... I've burned myself... I've burned others including my own children... I've dropped ashes in homes that weren't mine... dirty ash trays... Smokers think they have smokers right and don't give a shit about others (smoke in your face)...people bum them and I run out, I don't like paying for their smoking habit...I quit dozens of times... I was a addict...smoking makes me feel like a loser when I gave in after quiting... I coughed up flum... I think that I my die with cancer...father-in-law died from smoking... my mother-in-law as emphazema from smoking... If you love smoking then you will die from smoking.. Learn to hate smoking... When it comes to smokers near me I am a total ass-hole and proud of it... You can be a ass-hole too... It feel good!...QUIT SMOKING...and this is the short list

I quit a little over 2 years ago. I smoked a pack and a half a day for over 30 years. It is truely a mental issue, after 3 days your body does not crave nicotine. It is a matter of habit. If you quit for 3 days you can quit forever, but remember you can never smoke 1 more, or use any type of tobacco or you will be right back to the point you stopped. Good luck and good health. I can't believe how much better I feel after quiting.

The natural healing process is sometimes up and down, lately I have been unable to write, as much as my heart would like to. Which is why, I am so grateful for emoticons!!!

I feel incredible joy when I come and read the newcomers and those who have been sharing for many months, comments.

Everyone who comes here and shares has something valuable to share from their own experience. It is what fuels this thread and keeps us all going.

Aw, Jasper, that's just great, great news. What an accomplishment. Happy for you. Three months is life changing and those toxic sticks keep getting smaller and smaller in the rear view window of your life. Pulled away to a new freedom.
You did. Many more, brother.

On another note, are you anywhere near Edinburg? Spent some time there and pissed away about two hours talking with Irvine Welch (Trainspotting, Acid House) in a little pub off the Royal Mile about nine blocks down from the castle. And as much as I loved Edinburgh (I'd live there in a minute) the picture you posted exceeds all the man-made beauty of that fine city. Frankly, it encapsulates what three months free of the smokes looks like; Fresh, clean, and open to infinite possibilities. Lovely.

Congratulations, Jasper.
