You quit smoking.....good for you! I had more practice quits than I can count. It will be 6 yrs October 29 for me. I still miss it, occasionally dream I'm smoking and I wake up thinking, I can't go through another quit!

I went the Chantix route too, I call it a miracle drug!!!

My husband has smoked since he was probably 12 yrs old, actually think he was born smoking so quitting for him was very very hard. For years and years he tried patches, gum, patches, gum etc. I was concerned because he would be chewing gum and sneaking smokes, way too much nicotine. Needless to say this was a very sore subject in our house. Me being an ex smoker, you would think I never smoked the way I carried on. To go anywhere in MH it would take forever to get there because of all the smoke breaks. 3 months ago my nephew introduced him to e cig. and he has not looked back. I realize it is substituting one habit for another but I will take it. He has got his wind back, not coughing and smells so much better😊. He likes the cinnamon flavor and I like the smell. E cig. work. Happy wife, happy home!

I was a smoker and know the regimen around quitting. I try never to pontificate about smoking and fear that someday I may relapse into the habit. My best friend is attempting to quit and I support him any way I can but I will never knowingly talk down to him about smoking. It is a very hard habit to throw.

Congratulations! It's easy to quit smoking, I did it many, many times (I think that's a quote from somebody famous) when the habit had me. I finally quit 16 years ago when my late wife had to have a lung removed because of cancer. No, she never smoked a day in her life, but grew up in a home where her parents did. I saw what she endured and quit within a week. Never had the desire to smoke again!

I don't think I'm famous, but I've been sayin' that for about 30 years.

My exact words: "Quittin's easy. I did it a hunnert times."

Dunner, I used to look for excuses for why I was special and could not quit, BUT, 15 years ago I decided I could do anything anybody else could do and quit cold turkey. I do realize I cannot cheat even once or I would be right back where I was 15 years ago.

As my name implies I am on oxygen and have COPD from smoking 3+ packs of cigarettes a day for over 40 years. I quite 13 years ago next month but the damage was already done and has progressed rapidly. The doctor told me at the time that if I didn't quit NOW I would be dead in a year. Well, I did quit cold turkey as did my DW right along with me. Do we miss it? Not even!! The smell is just downright putrid and I can't believe how bad I smelled all those years, not to mention the expense.
My Dad was a heavy smoker too and died at 62 of lung cancer. You think that would have been an incentive to quit but no, I kept on puffing away. So, to those of you that have quit, CONGRATULATIONS!!
To those of you trying to quit, just keep at it. It's not easy but it's doable.

Well, I smoked my last on November 29, 1982 at 11:59 PM. Nov. 30 was a birthday, and that was my present to me, and we were expecting our first child, and I swore none of my children would ever see me smoke. The following week was one of the most miserable I can remember, but sheer determination saw me through. I swore to myself that I would do anything else, but not light up.
Congratulations to OP, and hang in there. The urges will get more infrequent, but never expect them to totally go away. In fact sitting here now, enjoying a strong , good cup of coffee, the thought crosses my mind that a cigarette sure would taste good.

It was a year ago today that I had my last smoke. The urges are farther apart and easier to combat. I still have not found the trigger on the urgers.

It takes about 5-10 years before the urge REALLY goes away. Morning coffee, stress and bars are your danger zones.

You know you are over it when cigarette smoke goes from a pleasant smell to smelling awful.

The longest journeys are conquered one step at a time. Keep walking. And if you fall down... get up and start walking again!
