I've smoked for 15 with one four year stoppage. I wish I never started again.I smoked for 47 years and the only thing I use right now is chantix and sunflower seeds
What gets to you? Mine is a screaming kid. For some reason I hear him scream and I need a smoke.Still smoke free though it is a struggle at times
Fair enough.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.
I do too. Very much so. That does make it a lot harder.I just enjoyed smoking and that makes it harder to quite
I'm on day four now.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
It's worth a try.Good for you!! cinnamon sticks might help, but they don't taste so great. With me it's the habit (hand to mouth), so I'm stocking up on alcohol...
My issue is now with the gum. I lost a filling last night. Ever had the nicotine gum sit on a gaping cavity?The only problem i had when i quit was i had the munchies all the time. Sort of like back in the 60's when ( oops so i have been told ) smoking pot. I think i remember the 60's
I've been craving fresh air, being stuck in the house was getting old, thankfully for me it's warmed up a bit.Maybe you have ... a craving for a lung full of clean air ... a craving for exercise (playin' with the kiddies) without coughing up blood ... a craving to be able to say "I won!" Those sound like serious cravings to me... Continuing congratulations!
OK my fellow non-smokers......are you still hanging in there?
She is supportive, but still misses me sitting outside with her (we don't smoke in the house) so to keep her happy I will sit outside with her and shoot my bow while she smokes.Austin,
Is your wife supportive of you quitting? I hope she is. Hang in there. Become an example of the benefits of quitting. Maybe she'll decide to quit too!
She knows it, the issue is she only smokes at most a half pack a day. She's even made a pack last her a week, so it throws out the cost argument.break down the $$ - make her see
