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

I fell off yesterday after my husband brought me a cigarette and the ashtray as a reward for doing so well with quitting smoking. I know he meant well but it really disturbed me.

Why would anyone want to reward someone for doing a good job at quitting smoking by offering them a cigarette?

I let that bit of weirdness defeat my determination to refuse.

Today is now day one again. Sheesh.

It makes me feel better when I read all of your posts and progress.

 Quoting: Hopeless


Forgive me, but I am going to be brutally blunt. Tell your husband that if he loves you and wants you to live a long healthy life with him, not to sabotage your efforts to save your lungs. If you allow him to sabotage your effort, trust me, at some point in the future you will be wheezing and struggling to breath as I was. My desire is not to scare or ruffle your feathers, rather to present the facts of your future with smoking. The struggling to breath is very frightening I can assure you from experience. I do not want you to ever experience that feeling, therefore I wish you strength and understanding from your husband. May your efforts prevent you from further damage to your body. Bless you, and stay with us. hf DF
 Quoting: Desert Fox


Your bluntness helped me crush my cravings.
I also was struggling for breath, the last 6 months or so, I really thought I was going to die from all the coughing and pain in my chest.

Today, day 2, my chest feels so much better, my coughing has diminished and it's easy while in the throws of addiction to think about giving in to the craving. After all I can breathe today and my chest no longer is crying in pain.

Thanks DF, for snapping me back to reality.

I will not smoke.

Now we are getting somewhere. I will not smoke, are what you must repeat, over and over and over, until the craving subsides. Sip on cranberry juice every time the urge gets over powering, it works for a lot of us here. Tomorrow is day three and you will feel better everyday. You will begin to taste the air again, and the foods you eat. The rewards are astounding, and you deserve them. Its your life, and you choose to live.hf DF

hahaha Greenhorns, well for me the first 6 months after i stoped was a bit havy, always looking around like searching something, missing the typical smoker-gestic, missing my fingers near the face, lips, the up and down of my elbow . . . . . etc.

the most important help comes from myself - i was simple thinking WHAT IS TABAC and WHY I BURNED THEM and INHALED and that was the point of no return.
i had also great help from my girlfriend - she dont smoke never and she was suffering my smoke.

sorry for myself i was that stupid and for so many years. i know for some people it looks impossible stop smoking like it was for me before, but believe me - make a analysis of what you are inhaling, look for friends who dont smoke - get envolved with them, just a idea

Day 3, I will not smoke.

Day 2 was harder than day 1, hoping that day 3 is less stressful.

My breathing is easier already and I am no longer hacking my brains out either.

I won't give in and go back to the slavery I have found myself in for over 30 years.

The hardest smoke for me to give up the one first thing in the morning. Hell, I have driven in a snowstorm at -30c just to get my morning fix.

This post is in lieu of a cigarette, keeps my hands busy while I drink my coffee and get ready to face the day, smoke free.

I'm at the critical junction today, I must stay smoke free.

Thanks for listening.

For me every time I feel like smoking i workout....

pushups, situps, pullups.....etc

whatever I can do that is healthy to take my mind off of the cigs.....

the fact that you are replacing something completely healthy for something that is not will make you feel really good about yourself at the end of the day!

Hang in there!

Day 3 = very difficult

Just finished shovelling a shit load of snow.
Normally I would reward myself with a ciggie or two.
Old habits die hard.

My chest does not hurt after all that exercise for a change but am coughing up a lot of crap.

Having a glass of h2o instead.
Forgot to bring the cranberry juice to work, it's sitting on the counter at home. My brain is still a little foggy.

Need to cleanse my wardrobe.
I can smell smoke on my jacket and I don't like it.

Thanks for starting this thread DF.
I'm finding posting instead of smoking seems to take my mind off it.

I am liking being a quitter.
Thanks for letting me rant while withdrawing guys.

cleansing the wardrobe proved challenging for me.
i have washed everything 4 times and there still is smell of smoke, but it is receding some.

i bought some of that special spray for smoke smell. it helped break it down some. so daily i spray everything down with the spray and then re-wash it.

even the towels in my upstairs closet still reek of smoke, and they are washed every few days. driving me cray-cray

Canada - Day three! Didn't it feel great waking-up this morning with the knowledge you didn't smoke yesterday? With a reference point confirming you can and are doing this?

Big day today and it just might be a cakewalk for you. You have 2/3rds of the 72 hour detox behind you. Odds are with you.

Big accomplishment. Congratulations.

Smoke in the wardrobe will work itself out. I've been walking around in my skivvies for the last three months. Fashion-wise, it's been difficult (especially because the white skivvies don't flow with the black socks and brown sandals I unsually wear). Going outside with a trenchcoat over said skivvies has led to interesting encounters on the subway and picking-up my children at school. People either look at my wrist for a hospital/institution bracelet or ask if I need help. I've taken to attaching 15 wristwatches to the inside of the coat and this has afforded me a lucrative sideline business. I must admit that upon opening my coat during one sale, a woman customer asking me, "How is every little thing?" left me feeling a little small. But, hey, I didn't smoke (and I sold a watch)!

Fist things first. Victory of Day Three for you.

You can do this!

Thanks for making me laugh! I needed that.

Felt strange to wake up this am and not have a cig.
Halfway through a stressful workday and am riding the crave wave with deep breathing. (now that I can actually breath deep)

Walked behind someone smoking, did not get the urge to run out and have a smoke, now that is big for me.

Looking forward to each day being easier.
So glad I went the cold turkey route, no nicotine whatsoever.

I taped myself during a hacking coughing fit before I quit and watch it every time I get a massive urge.

Puts a damper on the urge pretty quick, it's not pretty.

One day at a time. I know I can do this.
Day 3 is by far the hardest and if I can make it through today, perhaps I'll have this monkey off my back.

5a

Thanks to all my fellow quitters for the support.

I told no one I know that I quit, most of my friends smoke and will deliberately sabotage my efforts to give it up. They have in the past.

I am walking this road alone, with only the help you guys are giving me, until I am free and clear of the urge to go back to smoking.

Canada - You sound good.

Whenever I pass someone smoking, I can smell the chemicals contained in the stick. Can you believe chemical mixtures found in embalming fluid and nail polish remover (and a host of others) are in cigarettes? Many of the chemicals found in cigs have been banned from being dumped in toxic landfills by the EPA.
And this is the stuff we put in our majestic temples. Worse, we willingly paid (and were taxed by corrupt operators) to put this shit in our bodies! No more.

I will never look down on a smoker. Until you know, you don't know. I have faith all smokers will find their ways home. I'm so happy you have, Canada. I believe you will get through (and maybe even enjoy parts of) day three. One hour at a time.

No longer a slave to the lie. Free. Healing. Healthy. Clear. Smells like Victory.

Thanks BxMac.

I am loving being able to breathe, the chest pain gone.
It's hard to believe I willingly paid to put all that poison into my system.

I am actually enjoying riding the wave for the most part.
Makes me feel stronger whenever I crush that little gremlin inside me that wants to light up.

I don't think I could have done it if not for reading the Easyway book and this thread.

That's the honest truth.
I am crediting my quitting to you guys and Allen Carr.
Don't know how the brainwashing in that book works, but wow, it works.

For the longest time I kept seeing this thread on the front page, but avoided it as the addiction took over my rational thought.

When I started coughing up a lung and having severe chest pains, I knew it was time to give in and read the damn thread.

For whatever reason, even though I knew ciggs were killing me, I could not stop!

Thank you for saving my life.

I may not be home free but this is the longest I have gone without smoking in a very long time.

I look forward to being a permanent quitter.

peace

ps Ranting about it does seem to help.
Hopefully the rants will become shorter and less winey as I adjust to life as a nonsmoker.

"I don't think I could have done it if not for reading the Easyway book and this thread.

That's the honest truth.
I am crediting my quitting to you guys and Allen Carr.
Don't know how the brainwashing in that book works, but wow, it works."

Exactly how I describe the book to anyone who will listen....

Day 4, whooohoooo.

Re-read parts of the book last night when I didn't have the support from thread.
Only fleeting urges now, by golly, I may have his licked.

One day at a time, one ciggie not smoked at a time.

Now instead of envying anyone I see smoking, I pity them, for they still have the monkey on their back.

Money saved to date, $48., that's not chicken feed.

Thanks again for the info and support guys!
I'll keep you updated on my progress.

Congrats Jasper, you inspire me to stay on the quitters path.
I hope to be like you, checking in 2 months from now, still a non-smoker.

I stopped Oct 26 2011 and glad I did. Funny how I still remember the day like a birthday.

Keep stronger then those urges. Doing something to get your mind off the urges does work. I learned to play the piano.

Very nice, I started doing yoga again last night.
It seems to help ground me when I get an urge to smoke.
That and deep breathing.

I fell off the wagon about 2 weeks in and had 2 cigarettes, but i came on here and confessed to the group,
Then i got straight back on the non-smoking horse and rode off into the sunset....
