So since I turned 39 a few days after he was born..my health became a larger issue in the big picture...carrying a few extra pounds still....but blood pressure is NORMAL!!! Just hang in there...know what triggers an urge... and dont do that. You can beat em..

Hey suz,nice of you to think of us. Have a big chunk of karma.

I can only speak for myself as to why there has not been any recent updates on this thread.It was very exciting deciding to quit and then getting through the first hours and then the first day.Then the challenge was to get through Day 2,then Day 3 and so on.Then it was the first week,week 2 and so on.All these goals were posted on as they happened and ultimately conquered.

The next goal I had set for myself was one month and I had planned on posting when I achieved that goal.

I think gc and mb are still doing well.It will be 1 month for them today.My quit date was Jan 10th and I am proud to say that my resolve to stay a non smoker has only grown.I have not (or will not) ever have one again.

I'm sure the other guys will post on their progress now that this thread is active again.

Smoked out

Hi All,
My stop date was 11/4/06 after about 35 years.
This is the first time, OK, one of the first times that other's cigarette smoke smells bad to me. That's a good thing! A friend told me she was able to stop by feeling that smoking was just like a "Bad Relationship." That mantra helped, but the visualization I had really did for me; I exhaled and a hugh black cloud of smoke mixed with buzzing bees came out. The symbolism was quite appearent and it sure worked for me!
Good luck to us all.
Ed

It actually was a dream vision that came to me a few days after stopping smoking. The dream intrepretation web sites I checked says the bees are industrious creatures, being busy and all and are working thus at getting the smoke cleared away. The black cloud kinda speaks for itself. I take the whole visual as a good reading and that I was on the right tract or with right action in what I was trying to accomplish.

Chow down

I can still visualize. But not the quitting. It's remembering having a cold/cough and bringing up (gross, i know) brown stuff. Today it's not that way. "They" say at 18 mos. your lungs are pink again. I remember how excited I was on that day. Another thing, when I get a cold now the cough can last for a month after cuz of Asthma - started 2 yrs. after I quit - all because of the smoking

suz

mac & cheez brownie w/ice cream milk

Nice going all of you! It's exciting to hear success stories, there are to many of the others. I know it's not entirely over for you, but you have proven that you can overcome the physical addiction, the rest is mental. Hang in there, it's so worth it.
As a Paramedic I too often see the end stages of the smoking disease - not pretty.

We're backing you up!
Dave
