Well I went "cold turkey" yesterday and quit smoking after 15-years and now I feel like strangling someone. My posts on ATS these last two days are just plain mean and condescending.
I'm not looking for support (because currently I'm a jerk), but wanted people at a future date to refer to a thread where I can apologize and say sorry for being confrontational... this is that thread, and it's because I just quit smoking. Sorry.edit on 27-9-2011 by Jason88 because: (no reason given)

I remember going to my closet a few days after quitting and pulling something out and being able to smell the smoke on my own clothes! That really made a lasting impression.
Good on you for your success at this. It will definitely be worth the temporary difficulties -- and they are temporary.
I quit smoking for good over 20 years ago. Now its the booze that I am working on. Its been about 4 months and so far so good. Believe it or not, the booze thing has affected my personality more than cigarettes. I almost feel like the guy I used to be way back before I started any of these.

I quit, cold turkey, 10 months ago (Nov 17) after 54 years of smoking and never used a crutch of any sort.
I had aspirated a small chunk of carrot and developed a lung infection. The cough was bad and when the Dr. said 'lung infection", I thought "Stop Smoking" and did.
I sense there was some special 'intervention' between the Doctor's words and my thoughts, a nanosecond that sealed the deal. I cannot even describe that nanosecond!
Good Luck all!
Well good for you,too!
(It seems that we were the only two who had actually quit smoking, and no one said "Boo"to either of us).
This whole thread turned into a contest as to who could be the most arrogant and a**-hole still smoker of the bunch.
More's the Pity!
