Where have my quitters gone? Still quit or fail?
 Quoting: Desert Fox


I’m back and I’m winning. Quit with my wife Thanksgiving night and am 100% nicotine free for coming on 4 days. Turned out it was a great time to quit. Long weekend at home, plenty of leftover food to lessen daily responsibilities. We pretty much puttered around, bitched at each other and the kids, took naps, drank water and cranberry juice, bitched and moaned some more and now here we are. I had both nicorette gum and an e-cig at home; neither of us has touched either one. We don’t want to prolong our withdrawal and that’s exactly what these aids do. We want every last fucking molecule of nicotine metabolized out of our systems. Taking in ANY sort of nicotine at this point puts us straight back to square one; I want no fucking part of going through this past weekend again….EVER. I know the fight will be on-going for a long while but I also know the worse of the pain and misery is over. It’s nice to be over the early stages of life sucking because you cannot smoke and into the stages of identifying the positive aspects of being free.

This really helped me a lot: [link to whyquit.com]
Nice thing about ntap is that each chapter is no more than 2 pages so I could grab my ipad and knock out a couple chapters for support/motivation. An above poster mentioned Alan Carr. I read his easyway book on drinking; I can imagine his smoking book is just as good.

I also downloaded the no smoking ipad app. Nice to see a running tally of how many smokes you have NOT had and how much money you HAVE saved.

Good luck to all in the midst of the fight and to all gearing up to enter the ring. One round at a time….it may not seem so but it is a winnable battle!! I (25 year smoker) am proof as are many others here.
I will be back with updates and to offer support for others.

Wow, I will have to look for the app. It sounds like what I need.
Very encouraging to see everyone quit smoking! I need to so bad. I hate it. I quit with my pregnancies, but started again after I was done breastfeeding them. :(
I switched to the natural/organic ciggies a few years ago, they are so darn expensive. My hubby is going to quit with me this time, our date is Jan 1st. I'm excited and I think we will do great. We have each other for support and I know that is really what I need...a quitting buddy!
So good luck and congratulations to everyone!! hf

I haven't read through this thread and I'm not going to.
I don't have the fucking patience right now.
To those who have quit...congratulations! Me? This is DAY 1
and it already sucks!
But I want to do this and even if I didn't, it wouldn't matter...considering I'm flat broke. I smoked my last one last night and this morning....half last night and the other half I smoked this morning as soon as I woke up.

Please anyone who can, send me positive energy...prayers...whatever you wish to call it.

Find something to do that you always wanted to do and learn it. I learned the piano and would practice every time I had the urge to smoke.

Maybe painting or skiing, surfing, skate boarding. Dont have to be an expensive hobby, just something to keep your mind off smoking.


For added strength, remember they changed the chemicals in the paper to stop them from burning when put down. The chemicals they added are known to cause cancer along with the nicotine.

Why do you think Obama quit right after the ingredients were changed? That is when and why I quit.

Worse than just glue.

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.

Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
After 15 years of smoking, I tried quiting with Chantix about 5 years ago and it worked for about 3 months until I went to a party. The issue was that I still wanted to smoke very badly and when the opportunity was there I took it. Since then I just resigned myself to the fact that I was a smoker.

This past February I moved into a new place and my neighbors were visibly disgusted by my smoking, and so over time I didn't smoke as much at home. Now I am down to 2 or 3 cigs per day. The morning coffee cig, the end of my work day cig, and my "nightcap" before bed. On days I don't work I just have the morning and night one. Now the morning one is getting to be much longer after waking up and sometimes not at all as I'd rather sleep a little longer.

For me, it just phased itself out over time. If I would've TRIED I would've failed, because I would place too much pressure on myself. I did this with drinking too. 6 years ago I was a daily drinker and had trouble sleeping if I didn't drink. I got sick, was on medication that I wasn't allowed to drink with and broke my routine. I tried to drink a few times, but let me tell you, alcohol on chemo just makes you sicker!

So I guess I don't have any tricks other than you just have to be ready to be finished and then quit. I find I don't really enjoy it anymore, so why am I wasting the money? I guarantee though if I put my mind to it to "quit" the few I do smoke I will probably not succeed, so I will let myself naturally quit.

Congrats to everyone who has done it with their own methods! It proves that you have ultimate control over your existance!

Thanks so much for your story of eventual success. DF

Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
Good for you! I smoked for over 30 years. Last month I went in for Back Surgery and two days later, I had a Stroke. I spent 3 weeks in ICU and 1 week in a Basic Recovery Room. All that time I had no smokes.

During my stay, I met a guy who had one lung removed and yet he still smoked. Now he was having 1/2 of the other lung removed.

I decided right then and there that I didn't need them any more. The month that I was in the hospital did a good job of detoxing me of everything, to include cigarettes.

Now, I use a 14mg patch and an electronic cigarette which I can use anywhere, to include in the hospital.

I decided that I would not be the type of person that tells others to stop smoking. Nope! However, I will hope and pray that they never go through what I did... a Stroke that might have been prevented if I was not a smoker.

So, you have my total support, my friend. And if you need someone to talk to... I'm here for ya.

What a great presentation of your results from smoking. Most smokers, as I was, think things like that will not happen to them. But you found out the hard way as I have, now maybe others will read our stories and try to beat the demon. DF

What a story. I hope you haven't suffered too many ill effects from the stroke, but good for you for committing to not going back to the trap. Even with 3 weeks in the hospital, there are too many who go back. My aunt, for example. Threw a blood clot to the kidney, lost the kidney, and spent 2 weeks in the hospital. First thing she did when she stepped outside was have one. Anyway, I wish you a speedy recovery.

Quitting the second or third time like I did, gets harder each time for sure. Try what my uncle did, use a candy cane to take the place of the cig. I don't think it would work for me, but who knows. Some on here are swearing by the E-cig. Good luck Salt. DF

Salt, I absolutely could not have made it past the first 10 days without Chantix. It will help you get past the worst, then quit the chantix as soon as you can. My cig consumption went down the first day I was on it, because I just wasn't getting the kick from the cig like the day before. Works.

i'm afraid to take that med. my dad took it (he was a 3 pack a day smoker for over 30 years) and he got so mean and weird on it. said the anger was off the frame. so he stopped taking it and just wore two patches of the 21 mg nic patch and chewed gum too. [hilarious]

but he quit.

i have never been one that can take meds well. even cough syrup. lol...

the patches work pretty good for me, but if i wear them at night i have really weird, hectic dreams.

dude, i quit once for 9 yrs. started up again a few years ago. switched from marlboro to spirits and find i smoke a ton less. but, ready to set em down again. i am one of those who likes having a cig hanging (like my avatar) and struggle with the idea of not having that little comfort.

i have tried quitting a few times. quitting the second time around is way harder.

Salt, I absolutely could not have made it past the first 10 days without Chantix. It will help you get past the worst, then quit the chantix as soon as you can. My cig consumption went down the first day I was on it, because I just wasn't getting the kick from the cig like the day before. Works.

i'm afraid to take that med. my dad took it (he was a 3 pack a day smoker for over 30 years) and he got so mean and weird on it. said the anger was off the frame. so he stopped taking it and just wore two patches of the 21 mg nic patch and chewed gum too. [hilarious]

but he quit.

i have never been one that can take meds well. even cough syrup. lol...

the patches work pretty good for me, but if i wear them at night i have really weird, hectic dreams.
 Quoting: Salt


Ha, on the vivid dreams. I did the patches one time. I didn't have any bad experience from chantx, but I stopped taking it after 9 days I think, because too many do have bad results after being on it for a few weeks. Use what works friend.

I have quite smoking a few times. First with the smoke away system, then again with the patch, then Chantix, then the patch again. I haven't smoked since October, but am now addicted to the damn patch (14mg.)

The dreams go away after a while, but I had a few nightmares.
