Salt. See. you can't keep doing this to yourself. You can't hurl forever you know. Now if bored you must take up knitting or something...

You're not a failure.

Hello. First I just want to say congratulations to everyone who has managed to quit and also to those of you who have decided to choose to activate your power and release the addiction. Really good decision! I quit smoking in 2009 after 25 years of smoking and 17 years of addiction to smoking. Good luck to all of you. You can do it!

Thanks for hitting this thread and giving hope to all those trying to quit. Yes it can be done, and I am happy you are a winner over our demon. Come back and keep helping others is our best deed now. hf DF

Also Salt, some have reported spikes in sugar levels when quitting. That could be your symptoms. Pail and weakness, along with faint feeling are indicative off sugar level problems. I used to have a sugar problem and I would even get sweaty when the weak feeling came on. If you know anyone with a tester, check it. Many drug stores will test it for you too.

Salt (of the earth), so far from being a "chump-ass-failure." If anything, you're a pretty tough cookie (I'd expect no less than kick-ass from someone Joan Jett is lucky to resemble and it takes a steady hand to put another dime in that jukebox of daily living, baby).

It's torture being betwixt and between. Neither a smoker or a non-smoker. No place to hang your hat or rest your head. Limbo, the place of shadows and dried bones. It's got to be tough. I recall you writing some weeks back that you were shooting for January 1 to put the smokes down (something about the value of goal-setting). Why not do it then and give yourself a break? Give yourself permission to smoke like a banshee for the next two days and then put the bastards down for good on New Year's Day. Two on, two off, has got to be painful and a huge mind-fuck. Give yourself a break.

As Grumps, DF, and CHL wrote, there is something about cranberry juice that seems to work wonders with the cravings. When I first read about it (some Aussie wrote of it's wonders in staving-off cravings and its relation to drops in blood sugar levels tied to detox) I was skeptical, but I'm happy to report, Salt, it really worked for me. For the first week off the smokes, whenever I'd get a craving I'd run to the fridge and get the cranberry juice. I'd take enough to swish around my mouth for a few moments and then pour a five ounce glass and drink. Magic, magic, magic. The craving would pass. Whether it was just a major mind flip or real, it worked and helped immensely. Please try this when you decide to put the poison down.

Finally, CHL is the shit and I second his generous offer of sending some patches your way. Should you like, I'd be happy to send about 50 pices of the 4mg nic gum your way. And while going totally nic-free is our ultimate goal, I'm of the mind that whatever gets you away from putting that smoking stick of chemical shit in your mouth is a winner to me. Sometimes it's ok to tiptoe away from the monster rather than jumping off the cliff to a new beginning.

In any event, be gentle with yourself and, if you must judge yourself, look at yourself with gentle eyes. That you're here swinging for the fence is more than I could have said for myself some three weeks ago, So smoke like a wild woman for the next two days, or put those rabid dogs down.

Whatever your choice, you're not alone and, as can be seen, there are a lot of people here (and you're in great company with Sister Grumpy, DesFox, ChL and all the others who bring their grace here) who will walk along road with you. Together we can do what we can't do alone.

Anon 132 - I know you're away at your family's vacation place, but the last time you checked-in you were going through a rough patch. Just wanted you to know we're thinking of you and pulling for you. Win, lose, or draw, you've got pals here wishing you all good things and continued freedom from the yoke of those nasty-ass smokes. When time allows, please let us know how you're doing. We're in it together, brother.

Anon 547 - Congratulations on your decision to put the smokes down. As I write, you're smoking your last. You stated you're starting your new-found freedom tomorrow, please use this thread. There isn't a person here who hasn't gone through what you will be going through. You don't have to do it alone and talking to like-minded people really helps. Don't worry about sounding silly, crazy, or exceedingly normal. It doesn't matter. All that matters is you come here and let others walk with you.

Regarding your questions, it's difficult to give definitive answers. Each person has their own experience. You may not have difficult cravings (like you, I smoked two packs - sometimes two and a half to three - a day and was a smoker for many years) and you ight find yourself pleasantly surprised that quitting was much worse in the anticipation than in the actual doing. If it does get dicey, use the cranberry juice as others here have suggested with the knowledge and the promise that the cravings will pass whether you smoke or not. So don't smoke. Take it a minute and an hour at a time. Also, drink a lot of water and flush the poison out of your system. Peppermint sticks helped me as well. That said, you might not need anything and you just might find yourself and your body saying, "oh, shit, this isn't bad at all and thank goodness I'm really doing it." Finally, go back to page 19 or 20 (or one of the upper teen early page 20s) of this thread and find the link provided by "RicRoc" leding to Alan Carr and "The Easy Way to Quit." It puts the emotive/psychological aspect of smoking into great clarity and it's been a great help to many here.

Do check in, check-in and check-in. You're found a safe haven and kindred spirits joined together in fellowship and support here. It's your turn, You deserve it. You will do it.

Quote for the day: "It can be done" -- Desert Fox :)


I was just reading as ever about this quitting stuff. It ONLY just dawned on me. We all say "we're addicts" but it never REALLY dawned on me. I'm an addict. This is not small fry stuff. This is real. Smoking was socially acceptable for such a large part of my life and now it isn't. Now we get to see what we really are. We are the "cocaine/heroin/bathsalt" addicts types now. We are mucking about in the gutters of addiction, full of horrible filthy life compromises and waste. We can never take another puff. We are addicts. Jesus. Why is this only dawning on me now?

Everybody looking at us who doesn't smoke knows what we are but we don't. Didn't. God. I used to feel such pity and sometimes scorn for drug addicts. How hypocritical of me...
This is why we need to have compassion for ourselves. I'm starting to learn...

Jeez, it sure is easy to swim in the river of Denial eh?

Imagine breathing through a straw. Then the straw gets smaller. That's emphysema. That's real. It ain't maybe down the road. It's down the road waiting... why would you think you're the only one who can escape it?

Stay strong everyone. Our lives depend on it.

"A year ago we both wouldn't even think about reading a non-smoking thread"
Exactly! well put Mac!

Funny thing is that I used to say "I can't understand the mind of an addict" and would wonder how in the hell anyone could continue using drugs.

Then the realization that I am a nicotine addict came and wham.....

Dearest Fox, you are a rock. I think you're saving my life with this thread. I never even thought about emphysema when I quit smoking this time. I was thinking about costs and inconvenience and etc. I was just reading about emphysema last night. If your thread stops even one of us from getting this then you have done such good for so many. :) You are the kind who gives back to the world even when we don't deserve it. :)

December 31, 2012 my last smoke.

Quit before for 16 years. Been smoking organic for about 4 years.

Got my detox herbs, whole foods, and juicer ready.

Got my herbal remedies to help my nervous system cope.

Lots of bath soaks and salts (detox and cleansing for lungs).

Able to take one month off from work to rest and detox (worked the last 3 months 10-12 hour days sometimes 7 days a week for this gift of time).

Incorporating bio mat, chi machine, yoga, walks in woods, mediation and more time with my spiritual family and teacher.

Reorganizing my life so that the stress levels are less and the joy of living life levels are much higher.

I will do this and wanted to declare my intention to do so amongst others who are doing the very same!

Thanks for the platform to share OP.

Congrats and good luck to everyone seeking to let go of smoking.

Wow! If ever someone is ready to put the toxic sticks down it is you. Locked and loaded with all the information, resources, time (brilliant to take the time off to detox and heal), and heart to put the smokes down. And a 16-year-clean reference point! It's going to be a pleasure to stand on the sidelines and applaud the hours and days you gather as you move away from cigarettes and return home to the free man you are. Please, please, come back to this thread and let us share in your journey. I can't tell you how impressed I am with your prep and positive vibe. Ra Buffalo Sodjah! So nice to meet you and what a new year for us all.

Able to take one month off from work to rest and detox (worked the last 3 months 10-12 hour days sometimes 7 days a week for this gift of time).

Incorporating bio mat, chi machine, yoga, walks in woods, mediation and more time with my spiritual family and teacher.

Reorganizing my life so that the stress levels are less and the joy of living life levels are much higher.

I will do this and wanted to declare my intention to do so amongst others who are doing the very same!

Thanks for the platform to share OP.

Congrats and good luck to everyone seeking to let go of smoking.

Thank you both for your kind words and support. I will be back to the thread - when I feel ready to interact after detoxing.

Thank you OP for this thread which I will read when the going gets a little rough - as it does, until the detox and cravings become more manageable.

The cigs served their purpose during an intensely stressful 4 years of my life. Now it is time to let them go and I am ready.

Thank you again.
Jah is indeed love.

Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
Has anyone ever quit successfully, by cutting back gradually?
That's what I'm doing.
I'm down to 3 to 5 cigs a day.
I was smoking 1 to 2 packs every day. So I consider this a huge success for me.
Going to do the 3 cigs per day for about a wk,
then cut it down to 2 a day.....and so on.
I'm setting Jan 27th as my quit date.

What do you guys think?

I've been happily vaping since Feb 25th, 2012. Nearly a year!

I'm vaping delicious waffles. So buttery and syrupy. My nic fix has never tasted better.
