Good job brother....ive been cold turkey now for a little over a month. You can do it.

Ive found that when i start to get a craving if I take a deep breath then force a cough the craving subsides...muscle memory perhaps.

Keep it up man...proud of ya!

Thank you, and you also!

I figured that just posting it online would even reinforce my quitting.

You all are actually helping!

Oh, DB rocks alright. Mostly in his chair that he keeps in the parlor.



You are the one who used the word parlor. I haven't heard that word since I was about 5. lol

That word worked best with his old ass and that rocking chair. Does the visual it created seem more vivid? I should have mentioned his Victrola playing in the background.

CONGRATS! More power to you.

There are some herbal things that some folks find helpful in going the course.

Regardless--every day step after step . . . after 90 days, you should be pretty free.

Cheers.

Thank you everyone!

I'm really overwhelmed.

It's just smoking I'm giving up.

Other things like making sure it puts the lotion on it's skin, I'm still working on.

I wish you the best Bro. Watch out. Smokes are patient. They will wait. I went 10 weeks and then.... a party. "It's only one smoke. Special occasion." "One pack. It'll last me 2 weeks." Uh huh. Those lying bastids.

That's right. The first time I quit smoking I went to a party 10 days later. Had a drink. Bummed a smoke and then started smoking again. So the 6th time I quit I also quit drinking for three months lol.

Now I don't smoke. Just drink, when I drink I still crave. So I have issues!

Good luck to you and congrats!

My grandfather went cold turkey successfully. Of course, he never took it seriously until his doctor finally sat him down and said "It's your cigarettes or you life."

5htp. Get some. It is amazing. Google it, Youtube Jim Carrey talking about it. It will help boost your serotonin and continue to produce more. You will feel much better whenever you aren't getting all the dopamine by using this. Green Tea also helped me, LOTS of it. And water. Can't forget water. If you have the will to leave behind the things that hold you down nothing can stop you, for it is written. God Bless.

What really helped me was recognizing the activities that I ritually smoked during and then understanding that I needed to either avoid those activities or find something else to do instead of smoking during.

I smoked after eating, while playing video games, talking on the phone, hanging out with friends, and on breaks at work/school. I had to get over the association of cigs to those things.

I believe you'll eventually get used to not smoking and you'll begin to stop thinking about it, even during the times you're used to smoking.

I hope it works out for you!

Good for you. The improvements to health begin in about 3 months. After 6 months to a year , you will start having what looks and feels like bronchitis.That is a good sign , though. That would be your lungs clearing.After that period of time , you will not feel that strong urge anymore.

Quitting is a beautiful thing. Tobacco-less for 3+ years now. From a 45 year smoker , the last 4 years at 3+ packs/day

After I quit for the 6th time I spit out tar a few times yuck. I realized I could live life without smoking. It's a bad addiction. You can buy cigs anywhere. The nicotine leaves your body but the thoughts were still there for a year after I quit! It feels good to be free of nicotine

One thing I noted after a time. You can smell again. Like chocolate in a convenience store. That was cool.
