Glad I found this thread. I really need to quit and reading some of these threads may help. Such a stupid habit.

Thumbs up Big Congrats RichardT!

The people on this forum and this thread contributed significantly to me stopping 8 years ago. My son was six years old back then. When I recently talked to someone about how thankful I was that I had quit, my now 14-year old interrupted us and said, "I never knew you smoked!"

My "smobriety" date....Sep 22, 1989. Attended a few "Smokers Anonymous" meetings, now called Nicotine Anonymous.....

Used the Seven Minute Rule..... when I wanted a cigarette i waited seven minutes by using a timer. The urge diminishes after about five minutes.

Today, some of the meds are helpful, but have their side effects which can be quite severe.

Good luck to anyone who has a desire to quit smoking....
Happy trails and Good Luck

27 Nov 97. Never looked back. Never felt better. Good on ALL of you! The smokes they sell today are awful, that stuff just doesn't smell right. Kind of like my Univolt when it died......ugh.

Thanks to my granddaughter, Jada

September of last year (2014). Was in the process of building a doll house for my granddaughters when Jada (5 year old) asked me, "when will you quit smoking, grandpa"....I told her that I would when I finished the doll house....and kept my promise....Sometimes we just need a nudge in the right direction from those we love.

Well, how time flies! I quit smoking (post #42) at the urging of RichardT over 10 years ago.

Thanks, my friend.

10:30 pm, January 31, 2005 was the very last time a cigarette touch my lips (10 years in a couple of days).....

In the past ten years I have saved enough money to buy and restore my Airstream 310 turbo diesel, as a pack of smokes up here in Ontario are almost $12.00 bucks. It adds up fast.

No more.... nicotine stained fingers, coughing and hacking, bigger and longer colds, smelly breath and clothes, first smoke in the morning outside in -40+ weather, burnt upholstery in my car after a trying to flick a butt outside and not succeeding, guilty talk too's by my two daughters, wife and Doctors....although it has now switched to weight.

Was there ever an upside to smoking? (other than I used to be thinner)

Per Mare, Per Terram and may all your campaigns be successful.

I inhaled a LOT of 'second hand smoke' from my parents... for 16 years.... moved on and my 'allergies' cleared up.. until I went to bars or visited parents. I remember cleaning a brown 'tar' off the inside of the car windows......

I am glad their LUNGS filtered out MOST of that crud...

Peace and Blessings..
