hfHey all
Havn't been around for awhile; Looks like everyone is doing great with new recruits coming on board often. Awesome!!
Saw a couple references to some e-book links I posted; I'll repost here for the new recruits
[link to whyquit.com]
[link to media.wix.com]

Both are helpful but if I had to choose one, I would choose Alan Carr’s Easy Way. For you active quitters as well as ones toiling with the idea of quitting, read a page, a chapter, the whole thing…I guarantee it will provide some insight and help.

DF, you’re like the wise old man and non smoking veteran of the thread. You have provided an invaluable service to us all; my heartfelt thanks.

BxMac and CHL, you two seem to be DF’s star students at the moment; stay strong!!

In hopes to provide some inspiration, after having smoked for 25 years, tomorrow at midnight will be 3 weeks with absolutely no nicotine. Fucking, fuck yeah!!! Urges pass quickly, I feel so much better, I smell so much better, my bank account thanks me, my young kids are forgetting daddy ever smoked, blood pressure down. I no longer feel like I have a void in my life or like I broke up with my best friend. Life is better without the cigarettes. Health is now my best friend.

For those of you reading this thread and considering quitting, If you have some time off from work around the holidays, that is a great opportunity. The first 3 days are a real bitch so if you can stock up on easily prepared food and drink and stay home, chances of success may increase. This is how I quit right after thanksgiving.

Keep it up everyone, it gets easier and better everyday!hf

 Quoting: Desert Fox


Hey All, havn't been around for a couple months. So good to see alot of familiar names still around and the success is stunning. Also very good to see the quit links pushed now and again; very valuable tools imo. I've been quit for about 70 days or so. My ipad app tells me I havn't smoked over 1,000 cigs now; unbelievable. On one hand its hard to believe my wife and I have made it this far. On the other, it actually just feels normal now.
Congrats to all who are winning the fight. For the early quitters or the ones getting ready, read the quit links and take one day at a time. That one day will turn into 7, then 30, then 60. You will have not smoked 1 cig, then a pack, then a carton, then a-fucking 1,000! We all can do this.

Hello everyone!

Had my first smoking dream - it was a helpful experience because in the dream I had a smoke, - and then I woke up and the reality was I was still a non-smoker!!!

I feel the dream was a psychological release - where in another reality, I got to smoke and I did, and healed within my psyche the pressure and desire around wanting to smoke without actually lighting up in reality.

I do not know if this makes sense at all - when I stopped drinking 25 years ago I would have dreams about drinking and be filled with guilt and shame for having such dreams.

Now I know, that for me, it was a sign of my psyche healing to have dreams such as these, because in the end - when I am awake and conscious - I choose not to use and abuse my self.

OneLOVE !!!

I did not, in this particular dream, have associated physiological experiences. I have in the past.

It is my belief that each of us is unique genetically and spiritually and so are our dreams experiences.

Yes, each day will be filled with hills and valley's...

Having support, people who can relate to what you are going through, people you can share with - honestly - is paramount.

You can do this, with support it can be less hellacious - it's still gonna be challenging, cause that's how we build character and come to know who we really are without masking our interactions with reality - life - with booze and smokes, etc...

Been there, done that Hawk. :) It's just weird how vicious we can get. If we get mad and pick a fight it will give us a reason to pick up a smoke? That's my theory. Don't worry. This too shall pass. It gets better.

I learned this in recovery 25 years ago and it still helps me to this day

H.A.L.T.

Stop everything and take care of yourself if you find you are:

Hungry

Angry

Lonely

Tired

Eat, Meditate-Pray, Talk with someone who understands, Rest as much as you can, watch or read things that calm your nerves.

Your white knuckling it alone and it is a very tough thing to do.

You can do it and it can be done, but it is harder to do alone!

Hawk - Day four is huge. And while at work, even bigger!

The urge to smoke will pass whether you smoke or not. The urge will pass.
So don't smoke.

If you can get out for lunch, pick-up some cranberry juice (I know, it sounds crazy). It works and fights the cravings like a bastard (aids in the blood sugar drops in nicotine detox - but I just play a doctor on tv). Each time you have an urge, take a huge slug of the cranberry juice. Smooths out the crank and irritability as well.

These next few days are goig to pass. Blips on the radar screen. Ride 'er out, Hawk and you'll soon be on your way to a new freedom. You can do this.

Congratulations on your major, major, accomplishment of four days.

Huge, Hawk!
