Congrats. I successfully quit 9 years ago after trying to quit for a solid year and having smoked for 12 or so years.
I tried nicotine replacement (patches) for most of that year, but finally said # it and got Chantix. I didn't have any of the crazy side effects some
experienced and, even though I still smoked for the 2.5 months I was on that, the week my 3 month prescription was to run out I happen to run out of
cigarettes one night, and simply...didn't buy another pack. And that was that.
The hardest part was habit: wake up, cig with coffee. Get in the car, light a cig. Cocktails, cigs, etc.
my problem would be once i bought a pack of smokes i could not resist smoking them..
Since I have quit, I have maybe smoked one cig every year or two, which I bummed. Even if I want one
, I know that if I buy a pack I will smoke
that pack, and then have to buy another pack. So I don't. Plus, now that I'm quit, I can't even smoke a whole one.
