Here we go...

So, I made a decision that today was my last day as a smoker. I'm 38, blessed with a supportative family, and it is just time. Got to have money for the RV plans!

I wish all the will power needed to reach your goal. My DH smoked for 55 years. We found out that he has lung cancer are just now starting down that uncertain path.

Good for you!

It's been almost 21 months for me since I quit a 1 1/2 - 2 pack a day habit that I had for more years than I care to admit. Just take it one craving at a time and work through each one individually. It will gradually become easier over time. Good Luck and don't lose sight of your objective.

I bet I quit a hundred times before kicking that darned habit..... Think I could become a smoker again without much effort at all. That being said it`s been 10 years since I had my last puff. Never want to smoke again cause I don`t want to have to ever try and quit again. You can do it, if I did anyone can.

Hooray for you. I don't have a lot to offer in the way of help to smokers. My Dad died of lung cancer at the age of 48. Best of luck and you can do it.

Good Luck!
I'm at 4 years myself, and my wife is at 2 years.
You can do it too.

I quit smoking (2 packs a day), cold turkey, about 28 years ago. From a willpower perspective, it was the hardest thing I've ever done, and I still have the craving now and then.

There is absolutely zero upside to smoking, and you OWE it to the folks that love you to quit.

I wish you the best of luck. Stay strong. If you can kick it for three weeks, you have beaten it for good.

This will be the best decision you'll ever make in your whole life. My dad died at 56 from lung cancer. My mother quit smoking the day he was diagnosed and lived to be 89. I quit 35-36 years ago and now I can't believe I ever smoked. I remember when I quit that each time I almost gave in, I thought, "If I have a cigarette, then I'll have to go through the first week all over again." That helped get me through the tough part in the beginning. Good Luck to you.

I buried my father-in-law last Thursday after a long hard bout with lung cancer...he served 28 years in the Air Force, has three daughters, two grand daughters...he worked hard for all those years and got to enjoy about five years of retirement before he withered away to 106 pounds and died a painful death...cigarettes suck!

Great decision! My brother quit cold turkey on his fortieth Bday --- that was 14 years ago.
You can do it.

Best of luck - know it is a hard habit to kick - never have smoked but have equally as bad habits - sugar, Diet Coke, and etc... that although aren't as addictive - would be a struggle to quit. Again, good luck.
