I quit last year, after smoking 1-2 packs a day for 29 years.

If I could do it, you can too!

GOOD LUCK!

Good luck to you and to my husband as well. He's trying to quit smoking after 5 years addicted to cigarettes. I am not sure if he could as he's tries this several times before and all was failure

I stopped 6 1/2 weeks ago. Cold turkey. Withdrawal wasn't horrible and I occasionally want one but it passes in a minute or 2. However, the changes that the body goes through while trying to learn how to function without nicotine and all the other chemicals is the real tough part. Digestion is a mess, acid reflux and heartburn because the digestive system slows down while trying to learn how to function on it's own. Fatigue due to no longer getting the stimulant and lower blood pressure. Skin issues as toxins are being expelled. Hoarse voice. Things like that. Was 20 years for me and the body really does have to learn how to function on it's own all over again.

I'm approaching two weeks off the cigs, after 25 years on them. I knew the first three days would be miserable so I slept through them as much as possible. Next few days I'd have some seriously compelling cravings, but less than a dozen times a day. Now at day 10, I'd like to have a cigarette, and that fairly frequently throughout the day, but it's not that "I got to have one" feeling. Besides the cravings, (After the first 5 days), I haven't had a lot of terrible symptoms, wake up a little more at night but I also feel a little more energetic in general.

Sun flower seeds are helping and I'm going through those medium lengthy coffee straws too. Will quitting actually "take" this time? I don't know but day 8 was the longest I'd been without a cig in 25 years, so I'm hoping so.

The best advice I received so far, is learn from the times you tried to quit and failed. Then alter your approach accordingly. What works seems to be very individual.
