Started this post to give myself the courage to keep fighting this demon called nicotine. More than 40 years its slave. Believe it is a team efford after reading the post. To all of us that are fighting " it" keep fighting it does have benifits. I am now 241 days smoke free and the things i was told that would happen to me things like more energy, food taste better, the coughing is gone, sense of smell is better and extra money does not hurt. The urge is still there and fading.

I still have a night mares once in a while where i wake up to the smell of cigarette smoke but they are getting father a part. After reading some of the post i dont thik the chanex is the cause alone. Think your body wants you to fire up.

Now i can smell the folks who smoke when they come in the same room. Never knew i smelt that bad. Did not tell my dentist and hygenist that i quit this last check up they told me and my blood pressure was lower too. Thought that was a good sign my body was healing.

Congratulations, think about how many more days you will be around to smell the roses, because of healthier living.

DW and I are applauding your ongoing efforts to keep the demon away.

Again, congratulations and keep up the good work.

Driving a truck for a living is going to make it extra tough to quit... Nothing to do but hold the wheel....

I am a million plus miler thou not in a truck. E cigs gave me something to do with my hands while I kicked it. They sure can't be better than being completely clean but since they have two ingredients vs. a couple hundred chemicals I think they are a great way to begin to pry the monkey off your back. My wind is back, no more worries about burning holes in things, no stink, no yellow teeth. Other than coffee in the a.m and beers at night I usually forget I'm a smoker. No more sudden cravings after meals or if/when something stressful happens. Life was good. Now it's even better. Ymmv.

smoking

I'm glad I saw this thread for the first time today. On day 67 of quitting and the excitement and being proud of myself for quitting has began to give way to more of a missing and old friend feeling. I read each and every post on here and will now continue to do so as it's supportive to see this stuff. All that has been said is so true, take it one day at a time, the urges will come but they do go away. I wasn't happy to see that the urges will continue to show up for soo long, but think I can handle that when I think of the discomfort associated with smoking these days. Wanting a smoke during a meeting, long periods of not being able to smoke when traveling by air, not being the only one out in the cold smoking at a social function with friends.

35 years of smoking triggers are probably going to take a long time to disappear. Took a long RV trip only two weeks after quit date and not being able to smoke while driving was a killer!! DW was great she just kept bringing me food, smoked a lot of pretzels on that trip!!

Everyone is right, the Chantix makes for some really strange dreams!!

Today is Day 42. no lapses at all and I am proud. Very few urges really. I did not have many dream while taking Chantix, But I stopped about a week ago and have
had quite a few since. Wife is still taking it, and she is using an E-Cig. Now she is
trying to quit those also. One Day at a time.

Fourth of July 2011 at 5:00 pm was the DH's last cigarette. He smoked it in the car with me on the way to the hospital. We thought he was having a heart attack. 1 Life-flight, 3 stents, and 1 triple-bypass later, and he never touched one again. Even the smell gives him phantom pains in his chest. He was 50 when he had his heart attack and had smoked since he was 16. Now, the only medication he takes for his heart is a low-dose aspirin and Lipitor to keep his cholesterol in check. No pork, red meat, or fried foods. Daily exercise. It took me till Thanksgiving that same year to finally kick the habit. It was the second-hardest thing I ever had to do.The hardest being watching my husband's heart stop 4 different times in front of my eyes.

Keep at it...it may save your life and save your family deep heartache!!! Good luck to all!

Might I suggest that you and your husband start taking krill oil. It will help his heart and keep you strong also. It reduces cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and repairs nerve damage and arthritis. You shouldn't wait till something is wrong with you. This is the ounce of prevention.

Well, I have tried quitting many times but would always go back. However this time I believe I will do it... it has been 27 days so far, no real urges to light up...only took a heart attack to get me to quit. Hopefully others will quit before they have problems...but I was one of those that said it won't happen to me. Congratulations on quitting!
