Great to hear from you, Salt, and thanks.

You've got to be at 32 or 33 days as I write. Broke the month! Just incredible for smokers like us.

I so related to a recent post of yours regarding picking-up a smoke after quitting in the past and the shame that followed. I always have to watch for that myself. That tyrant shame. Your post meant much to me and I'm always so appreciative when friends here show a piece of their heart. It gives me the courage to do the same. Thanks for that and great congratulations on passing the one month milestone.

How is everyone today? We've had a lot of new quitters... And its always so darn hard the first few days. You must come here and complain. It's no fun if you don't.

You can do it. You can.

CHL and BxMac, I'm glad to be back. I guess with the bans I'll be in and out. I still crave now and then. Do you guys? Bx, you're on Day 63 or so now aren't you? Do you still get the urge? CHL? Hows the better half doing?

Oh its cold outside again. And pitiless me has chased the smokers outside. Oh how awful of me but that is the way it has to be for at least three years. I'm a bit of a maritimer so I wouldn't be that rude normally but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do....

People happy? Report in.

Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
Hi Kiwi678, putting up the big red X is important I think. I posted every single day for weeks because every day was a new commitment. And that is true. Every single day is a new day and a new vow not to take another puff ever. And some days it was hard but as long as came here and I posted I felt like I had made that commitment. And there were people there to cheer me on or acknowledge my struggle and it WAS a struggle now and then. It is Day 55 for me.

Anyway... I, like Jasper there (bad bad boy!... JUST KIDDING) within the first week or so had a setback but I got back on the wagon because of many such as CHL, BxMax and particularly Desert Fox. They had faith in me when I didn't. That's why I have faith in Jasper. eh Jasper? You can do it. One day at a time.

Change comes from self-love not self-hatred is my grand conclusion. You can't hate yourself for all the things you did wrong by smoking because the guilt will sabotage all efforts. Put all that nonsense on a shelf, all wrapped up in brown paper and forget about it. Right now, you can love yourself for all the things you are doing right. It is a gift to yourself.

I quit because I had phlegm in my lung that just wouldn't go away. Cough and cough and cough for months on end, waking up at night etc... Three days after quitting it was gone. I had gone through all that and it only took three days to fix it. How sad is that? I figured out that I had to take good care of this old body of mine because no one else would. It's doing the best it can despite everything I put it through. It is not my enemy.

The challenge is to love yourself long enough to get through the addiction, including all the emotional baggage that comes with it sometimes. If it ain't nice, wrap it up and put it on a shelf. Maybe you'll look at it later, maybe not, but right now, you are not going to smoke. That is all there is.

Not smoking is liberty, not punishment.

Love you all,
Me

You said it al right there Grump!

Yes I still get regular ALMOST uncontrolable urges to smoke, but the key for me is to simply recognize it for what it is, the big monster trying it's hardest to get me back.

I find that when it it gets real bad, I pop a pencil, lighter carrot or whatever between the lips and start puffing like I'm crazy. I do that to remind myself that smoking again would be crazy and just as stupid as puffing on a carrot!

My wife, is doing great although she is ALWAYS saying "I wanna smoke" but I am ALWAYS right there telling her to puff on a carrot..... lol

Hey Everybody...

Buggered up and fell off the wagon last night.. Had 3 drinks with friends and they were all smoking. Next thing you know my brain took complete leave of my body and at day 16 I blew it and had 6 cigarettes. Feel so angry at myself and pissed that I'm starting over again. verysad

If anything positive did come out of it, it is the fact that I did not even enjoy them like my mind told me I would. Today I feel like I'm hung over although I only had 3 beer and I know I feel like shit because of the cigs. It has strengthened my resolve, but emotionally I am completely depressed and can only imagine what a drug addict must feel like after a relapse. I am embarrassed and sad but starting again and I suppose I'm going to just avoid booze as well from now on.

Re: I QUIT SMOKING , YOU CAN TOO. I QUIT SEPT 27, 2012, SUPPORT EACH OTHER HERE
Day 133. Forgot yesterday was also 1 year of sobriety. Soo glad to be rid of that life. Easier to quit smoking without drink. Looks like I hit almost all of my goals for last year and I am on my way to doing it again. I am glad DF made this thread so I could rant and follow others struggle with smoking. Life can get really screwed up when everything is foggy in your mind. You know, I started smoking when I was 13 because of peer pressure and wanting to fit in, really it was the gateway drug for me. How different my life would have turned out if I never smoked the first Camel non filter. I was soo cool though, so I thought. Little did I know the perils that awaited me down the road, drugs, drinking, dropping out of school(after doing poorly), jail, loosing all ties to family and friends and possibly my wife and kids (see bad things follow you for a long time and people have longer memories than you think!). But you know what? I WILL NOT let it put me back in the state of mind that got me here in the first place. Not smoking for this amount of time (or drinking) has let a chemical change happen in my brain that is allowing me to finish growing up (38yrs old). I am proud to say that I don't smoke anymore. If I can do it so can anyone else, you don't need gimmicks or a magic pill, you just need to want it bad enough to stop. You didn't have all of that jazz when you started smoking, so why do you need it now? To all who have quit and have come here to share with us thank yourself for having the courage to want to quit and following through with it. Even if you fall off, just remember that you can always quit again.

Thank you EVERYONE for your posts...

I am having a challenging day with really raw nerves and ongoing bouts of fatigue - boundary issues and chronic fatigue were 2 of my main reasons for smoking - i.e. not knowing how to say "no" and pushing myself so hard that I used a cig for energy (CNS) and 'chillin' out.

Anyhooo - just really, really, raw nerves - even with the herbs and rest. Just gotta go through it...

You said it all man......

I said many pages back, that this very thread has served as an actual diary outlining our own individual happenstance of when' where and why we started smoking. As well as an outlet for us (glp nutters) to vent how we really feel about all things smoking, and what it led to in our lives.

you get a well used but always appropriate

i struggle with the same issues. today was a bit challenging as far as strong cravings punching me in the face today. but, when I think about it, i had those issues long before smoking became involved. the smoking was a coping mechanism for shit that was already embedded into my flesh and bone.

God has been really working on me the last couple years. i had to deal with some very challenging issues; grief, illness, death of loved ones, sick kids, financial freak outs, etc etc. God has placed me squarely into every single uncomfortable, tragic and frightening arena, forcing me to face my deepest and worst fears, forcing me to purposefully choose courage in the face of my worst proposed nightmares. I have truly been thru the fire and quite frankly i feel washed out.

the only coping strategies that i have left are real and healthy ones. there is no turning back. there is no backtracking or backsliding into the old me. i am a new creation. it hurts, it totally scares me to death, i am raw, exposed and vulnerable.

but i have the right to say "no" and to set boundaries. i have the same human rights as everyone else and i choose to stand on them today. liberating to say the least.

Have to be short for now, but read I just read three amazing posts here and wanted to express my gratitude.

Riggs (You are, beyond a doubt, down). Congratulations on your one year. I have so many people in my extended family either in AA, in and out of AA, or needing AA, that when we have a family reunion, wedding, wake, graduation, or picnic they read the preamble of AA at the beginning of the event. I relate and identify with so much of what you write. Thank you for the courage of your honesty. So happy for you and believe many great things are going to come your way.

Salt, I can't tell you how much admire you. It seems the best, brightest, and strongest experience the most compelling and challenging hardships. External hardships and the even more difficult hardships of the heart and soul (the stakes are much higher here). Reading you for some months now I have no doubt that God holds you in his hand and is closer to you than the breath in your nostrils. I kmow he will never leave or fail you. I believe he has great work for you to do. Thank you for the courage of your honesty.

OneLove, you continue to say so much in such a concise clear way. Always wide-open. Always with love. I believe the boundry issues will be addressed because you are committed to addressing them. I believe that. A fine, good, wise, person. You are. I thank you for the courage of your honesty.

Today, the three of you have given me an example of courage, honesty, and humility. Your examples remind me to do the same. I admire you all and thank you for your generous honesty. You make me proud to be in this earth suit.

Best to all of us.

Hey kiwi,

Why not quit drinking eh? But not if it sidetracks you from the smoking thing. I don't know about you but I have that "all or nothing" disease so I tend to go overboard and then throw it all out, so don't go there! :)

Just get yourself through the first three days and by gum,it'll be better. And better. And better.

You can do it.

Hi Salt -

I read and re-read your response a few times since you posted it. Your level of honesty and depth touched my heart, and in respect, I waited before replying.

I too have gone through much of what you have, for about 16 years. In my Dark Night of the Soul, everything was stripped from me, broken within and around me, until I fell on my knees in surrender (and stayed there). Today I understand it was that which was sacred and holy, purifying me so that everything in my life was of God and love. It was Isaiah who said "I will purify you in the furnace of affliction".

Then about 5 years ago, after being homeless for about 3 years, I hit a level of darkness in my service work, that hurt so much, that I began to forget love - that I was loved and began to cope by hurting myself and lowering my vibration. I began smoking.

It is only in the last year, that my life has completely changed. There is a poem in Scripture that reads - "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no hear has known, what God has planned for those who love Him". I carried this poem in my heart for 25 years, only in this last year has my life so completely transformed it self that I am beginning to see, and hear and know what God has planned for me - and I must be pure and able to take in the love and share it...

And that relates to boundaries. I am so sensitive, I can feel so much of others sufferings, that I give people a pass when instead I need to be firmer and ask them to stop behaviour that is toxic around me. It is especially difficult with those I love, as I feel I am repetitively tested and it is exhausting at time to continue to stand up against unconscious behaviours that in the end hurt me as well as them. Yet as you said so beautifully, "the only coping strategies I have are real and healthy ones"...

And so, if I am to be real and healthy, then I need to step up to the plate and be willing to set a boundary and stick by it.

Thank you Salt.

And thank you everyone else fr your honesty, love, commitment to change and compassion.

Hi Guys; Oddball checking in to inform you I am back on track again. I did lose it a while ago but just for one day.

After getting away from the rest of the smokers and back to my own safe fortress, I can relax and keep off the ciggs.

My wife has cut down a lot but not given up entirely. She is mighty proud of me anyhow. Keep in there everyone because I really do feel so much healthier now than I have for a long time.

Strange, how I can smell the smoke from my wife's breath in the room even after she leaves it.

benefits:

the last few days, while walking my dog in the field, at the foot of the beautiful rocky mtns here in amazing northern colorado, the air had a perfumy, earthy loam. i took in deep delicious breaths. awesome. my dog is so happy because now he gets three long 40 min walks each day. sprint-style.

my face has a fresh, rosy appeal. my puffy eyes are gone which used to make me look exhausted and suffocated before. but, now i look ten years younger.

my neighbor stopped me in my tracks yesterday. she said, omg, are you still not smoking? i said yes, not smoking for 34 days now. she said, you look so good. you look really good. like it took years off of you!

i am sleeping better, breathing better, tasting food, experiencing life with all of the 5 senses for a change.

the brain chemistry follows the sensual experience. it's like coming back to life.

and life is good.

Just wondering if any of you quitters with some time under your belt have been having smoking dreams and if you do do you feel bad about it when you wake up?

Yes!

I posted quite a few pages back my smoking dreams....
They started with me finding myself putting one out and feeling guilty
Next I would found myself smoking and feeling guilty
Then I would find myself lighting it and feeling guilty
Finally, the last ones I would be standing at the counter getting ready to buy them and catching myself and thinking "you don't smoke anymore"

It was then they finally ended, and at day 60, I haven't had any more.....

the best way to quit tobacco is to smoke a pipe of weed instead. no chemicals and satisfaction garanteed.

If you had bothered to read ANY of the posts in this thread, you would see that there are quite a few folks that are trying to quit that too, including myself,so do us a favor and DON'T recommend smoking weed.

What works for some doesn't work for everyone
