I quit when my wife got pregant with our son . Fourteen years ago.To bad smoking is so unhealthy because I really enjoyed it. Then again, I attended a funeral for my wifes mothers brother on Saturday. Lung cancer from smoking. It took less than a year after being diganosed. Something to think about.

3 weeks, 1 hour, 27 minutes, 8 seconds

And still no problems to speak of.

This thread will help me remember.

I am glad to see all the stories of others and hope this thread gives someone else the idea to quit.

It's not easy to quit. Congrats Richard.

I went on a "running binge" after I quit. Sort of like Forrest Gump. I quit then took up running and kept running and running. But nobody follered me.

I eventually did the Charlotte Marathon in 4 hrs. 25 mins.

Red face thought it was bad to be a "quitter"

I quit 35 lbs. ago, so I am a quitter to. Should have run with MOONSHOT. How far would I have to run now?

Ok, it is turkey day, add one more pound--- how far now?

Bob

And with my store Moonshine Junction you would think it would be easier to come by then it is.
If you are ever coming by drop me a line to let me know you are coming and I will make sure I have a little taste for you.

7 weeks, 3 days, 1 hour, 49 minutes, 55 seconds

I am proud to say I have not really wanted one - period.

People say my skin looks better ( I am getting more oxygen or something).

I must say that people who smoke smell really, really, bad, and can be smelled from great distances.

I am so glad I do not have to go out in the cold to smoke, I was in town the other day and saw people outside the courthouse smoking in the cold windy rain, I did not envy them.

I have saved alot of money ($188.92) as I have not smoked 1145 cigs.

I hope someday I do not look back and regret all the cigs I did not smoke.

(Just so you know I have a web program that keeps track of this or I would not have a clue)

Congrats!!!!!

The scientific reason for the better looking skin is that the Nicotine breaks down the natural collagen that makes your skin soft an pliable. By stopping smoking you body can repair the collagen, you will seem to look younger next year than you did last year!

You may also find that you will be healthier this winter, your immune system is able to fight illness 100% of the time instead of fighting the smoke too. And as you said, smoking outside, in the winter, the in and out of the cold puts tremendous stress on your immune system too.

Here is to a happier, healthier, and better looking you in 2005!

14 years ago today I quit. Think of the money I have saved. Less doctor visits and the cost of lighters and matches and ash trays, not to mention cigarettes.

It has been 13 weeks, 1 hour, 8 minutes, 23 seconds since I quit, I remember I did sell an Airstream that day.
I hve not smoke just over 2000 Cigs since I quit.

I used the money I saved to buy 7 more Airstreams this winter and plan to buy more as i find them.
(Those of you that know me know I am not kidding)

Richard,

Your nagging got to me. It's been 39 days and 5 hrs off smokes, and 11 days off nicotine lozenges.

Where is that web program you use to keep track of the savings?
