My aniversary is coming up, January 1st 2004. Its true the cravings get farther and farther apart until they are gone for good. Its nice to kiss my daughter and she no longer turns her head like she would when I smoked. Best thing I ever did and just remember try and try again until you get it.

I quit sometime late 1999. Don't know exactly my last day I smoked and at this point don't really care. I QUIT and that is what really counts. Plus I have many funny stories about "quitting". Like the time I told my best friend I was going to have to quit smoking because I wasn't going to pay "that" much for cigarettes. Next time we were together and I lit up she said "thought you weren't going to spend that much". My very rational responce was "changed brands - went to the cheap guys" "I am not paying more". Now I don't pay anything. And have that $$$$ to spend on our A/S

To day is the 20th anniversary of the day I quit! WOW I can not believe it has been that long!
Some days I still have that urge for one.

Stick with it Tedd; you have come this far. Just think $5.00 a pack that's about $150 per month and $1800 a year. Think of all the toys for the redue of the AS you can buy..
It will be 31 years this March for me and that is how I justify my toys.

All right, I quit right now. I've been meaning to do this for the last few weeks, but these stories got me going. Thank you all for writing them. I'll go back and read them again when the craving hits.....

Your dogs will love you for it. You will never look back but it's a climb everyone who wants to quit has to make.

Good luck, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year

I don't remember what day I quit. But it has been over 10 years now, and not regrets.
Only a better smelling house, car and self.
For all those trying to quit - YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!! Susan

I've sworn off--reading the posts of those who have quit.

Must do so as with each successive post mentioning tobacco, I experience an increased craving to step outside and fire-off a good cigar and it's too cold today to do so.

It will be 2 years that I quit on February 15. I read a bunch of these posts while I had my Nicorette in my mouth. I still miss it, I'm not gonna lie! My closest friends smoke, so it's tuff to go out with them (and vacation with them!) I will admit that I had a few puffs a couple of months ago. Tasted really bad! That's a GOOD thing! Hang in there....YOU CAN DO IT!

I have to say, at first I really missed smoking. But now I really do not. One thing that did help me was I was pretty much the only smoker in our circle of friends. So I did get a ton of encouragment. Don't give up. And of course remember all the bucks you will save. Susan

For those of you that need a little assistance (I am an ex-smoker 3pk, gave no smoking classes and retired repiratory care practioner) Smoking is a habit and the nicotine is habit forming. The suggestions I used was: 1) take a cigarette pack and replace the cigs with cinnamon sticks usually 3 will do. When one wants a cigarette, use the cinnamon stick in place, but DON'T light it. This will take place of the habit. 2) Increase you citrus intake as this will aide in ones want for the nicotine.
This program has helped several patients and friends. Give it a try and maybe you will be $5.00 a day richer.

If you want some motivation to further your quitting

In the past two months two friends, light smokers, were diagnosed with COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and another who has had it for 10 years passed. He was carrying oxygen tanks with him for the last year and a bit and it was tough watching him struggle to walk from the living room to the bathroom for lack of oxygen.

COPD does not go away. It is not curable. It only gets worse. Sadly quickly for some, others years before it gets to the point where they are debilitated. Drowning for lack of air. Not a pleasant way to end ones life.

We are really disappointed that it has taken this drastic event in their lives to cause them to finally quit. And one of them has a spouse with asthma and on a puffer, who continues to smoke like a chimney (she says for her nerves) while her hubby is trying to quit, is already struggling for air many mornings or after any strenuous exercise like a walk around the block, and he is very scared. He has to walk quite a bit at work and it is really becoming hard on him. Think if he were an Airstream owner and loved to go camping, the limitations that would put on him. He's mad at the cigarette companies. We are mad at all of them for not listening when they should have been to all of us telling them they needed to quit.

Sad isn't it?

Quitting is really difficult. Dieing is worse. Keep up the good work folks and you may just dodge a bullet, and not a silver one.
