    That's a start, keep it up and you will notice a lot of good benefits.
    A little over 12 years not smoking for me now.

    I'm going to quit again on Friday. I tried a few months ago and I failed.

    How long did you smoke? Are you using nicorette?

    Good for you. I quit for the final time in 1969 after many failures. I wanted a cigarette after a meal for a good year. Now I hate the smell... It gets easier with time.

    I've smoked for 15 with one four year stoppage. I wish I never started again.

    I sure hope you both keep it up and maintain a smoke free lifestyle. It's been 10 years since I quit and just wish I had quit years earlier.

    Any updates opaww? I'm back on the gum, but I'm still smoking when it gets to intense.

    GREAT!!! I quit 38 years ago and am extremely glad I did. Take it one day at a time and you will succeed. Good luck.

    What gets to you? Mine is a screaming kid. For some reason I hear him scream and I need a smoke.

    Excuses, excuses. You want to be around to see your kids graduate, get married, have their own children....be smoke free and it will nearly guarantee you reaching these BIG milestones.

    Fair enough.

    I do too. Very much so. That does make it a lot harder.

    Opaww & Austin,
    You both are doing what I should be and since reading about your efforts I've decided to finally quit too. I've been thinking about it and had lots of excuses why I don't. So, I've told friends my quit date & heads up on my first 3 days as everything will irritate me...lol. Oh! The best thing-I've decided to take the $ I would have spent on cigs for my first XD:D

    I'm on day four now.

    So far so good. I'm going a little nuts, but I always do.
