Wife and I quit in December. Cold turkey...............sort of. We bought e-cigarettes and stopped smoking real cigarettes altogether. I know we just replaced one habit with another, but it is a lot healthier without the tar, arsenic and all the other poisons you get from tobacco cigarettes. I spend about $30 a month on the e-cig juice. My 1 to 1.5 pack a day cigarette habit was costing about $220 a month. I tried the chantix, patches and gum to no avail. I think the e-cig worked because I still get nicotine and still have the activity of hand to mouth. Weight gain was about 7 lbs and has held steady at that.

Mrs Phillips,

Thank You!

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the encouragement. I opened a new carton today but it was NOT my brand and have decided that when they are gone, I will give it another go. I think, too, that I figured after smoking for over 50 years, the damage was already done but when I started counting the costs, that has helped me try again. ESPECIALLY when I think I could go CAMPING MORE!! Thanks again! MrsPhillips

Dont wait till their gone, do it now. Toss them suckers out in the garbage. I went cold turkey 30 years ago and I can tell you that you will not miss them once you get past the first couple of weeks.

I was at an Indian gas station last week and went in to get a coke, when I saw the discounted prices they charge for cigs I almost had a cat.

Everyone needs their own motivation. I smoked all my life since the age of 10-11. Short story, I went for a check up and they found a growth (1cm) in my bladder. Did the surgery but the doc said if I did not quit smoking, I would be back in a year for the same thing. The growth was cancer but not through the skin.
Well, I decided it was my wake up call and went on the Champix for a couple of months and one day said that's it, I'm done. Two years this past November and I don't miss it one bit. The most disgusting habit ever but when you get your head in the right place, it is easy to quit.P/S The growth has not come back.

I quit 6 years ago. Not a puff since and have no urges. Gained some weight but I can get that off.

I promised myself that I could have a big ol' cigar and a pack of cigarettes on my 90th birthday, right after I polished off a half a gallon of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream.

I quit in 1967 when I went to work in in oil refinery where you could not smoke. At first I would light one up as soon asI got off from work. After a few months of that I got to thinking hoe crazy that was, if I could go 8 hrs without smoking why smoke when I got off? Before working at the refinery was a pack a day or more when drinking. Was in the Army and then a Merchant Seaman where they were just over $1.00 a carton in those days, tax free. Most of the men in the refinery dipped snuff while at work, never tried it. Am 75 years old now and in pretty good health. Have no desire to smoke and could not afford to do so, they cost over .25 cents per cigarette now as you all know. My ex wife quit when they hit .50 a pack.

I'm down from 2 packs a day to about a pack a week. Wearing two patches at a time helps. I have a high tolerance for all meds.

The neat thing about quitting smoking is smelling the flowers in our various gardens and the greenhouse. The only bad side effect was I became a vast waistland but that eventually will shrink also. Stay at it because nothing is insurmountable. I admire all of you who have quit, are quitting or thinking about quitting; you're attempting to improve your lifestyle. My congratulations to all of you and my wish for your success.
