I look forward to lending my support to those that make the decision to quit.It has been the right choice for me and this forum has been a contributing factor to my success.

Congrats Spence. You're proof that a long term change is possible.

To ALL of you, I have the utmost respect for what you have accomplished. Although I have never been a smoker, I have worked with and observed those who have and I know it can be tough. Keep going...

Dave

Encouragement!!

I know this is a day by day thing to quit smoking, but for those of you doing so, I just wanted to add some more positive input.

There are plenty of people who will tell you that you'll fail or what's the use, etc.
I say that there are plenty of success stories, look to those, not the negative.

You're coming up on a weekend, and I suspect that these may be the harder times of the week due to social pressures. Stay strong, support each other by sending a PM or posting here. You know who each other are.

Dave

Well over two years since this thread started, and I am glad to say I have no need for Cigarettes and can now even tolerate smokers near me if necessary!


I for one think that the starter of this thread deserves some good Karma!

Wow, I had forgotten about this thread! Good to see so many of you that quit, still being quit. We hit two years last tuesday, and have been smoke free the whole time (one minor hitch for one of us, over a year ago). The thought of having one is completely gone for me now. Now we're finally tapering off the booze that helped to dull the separation pain!

Seriously, to all who have recently quit or want to quit...try everything, try as hard as you can. See you all out there camping!

I have been following this thread with interest for a couple of months or so. I have been pleased/excited/hopeful for all here who are trying to quit, and who have quit.

I think part of my interest is due to my job as a Paramedic and the ravages I have seen on the human body as a result of smoking. Part of it is that I have had an uncle and a grandfather die as a result of smoking related health issues.
I have witnessed how very addictive this is, and how people struggle with the habit and addiction. It is both.
I have watched a patient who had called us for difficulty breathing, put a cigarette up to the stoma in his neck and smoke one last one before we took him to the hospital.
Night before last one of my calls was for a retired police officer that I know, who died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 61. He was a heavy smoker for most of his life.
OK, enough of the stories, you all know the health risks.
To those of you quitting, keep making the effort - Do it for yourself, do it for those who love you!
To those who have successfully quit, congratulations.
Pulling for you,
Dave
