This is so true especially the first while.

I think I will steel this for future use because it is so true. Thanks for sharing.

Having been a smoker since 1958 I know that I am seriously addicted. For the past five or six months I've been asking myself "Why don't you just quit?" When I saw this thread I jumped right in and read every story and comment while having my coffee and my smokes. At the end of page nine, while snuffing out another cig I noticed that there were no less than nine cig filters laying in the ash tray. Oh my word.
After reading the success stories and the quitting now stories, I really need to change my question to "What are you waiting for?"
I'm going to do it.
Wish me luck.

Definition of hero.... someone who not only attempts what most are afraid to do, but succeeds in the task. You my friend, have done what millions have failed at, and millions more have never attempted. Full bragging rights are yours! Congratulations.

Keep going you are doing great. Nicotine is one strong addiction. I have been quit for almost 8 years. You can do it. My daddy had smoked when he was a young man but had been quit probably 40 years when I asked him if he still wanted a smoke. He said well sometimes the urge hits and I could smoke a Camel as long as a utility pole in about two draws, but he added, the urge is gone just as quick. I still like to smell good pipe tobacco or a good cigar but don't want to take up the habit again.

Prescription drug Chantix!. Greatest thing I have ever seen to get off of nicotine since I have been in pharmacy.

I quit 35 years of cigs and snuff in 10 days. No withdrawals, no cravings, no thoughts of nicotine whatsoever. Been 5-6 years. It's like I never smoked or dipped.

You seriously wanna quit, get a script from your MD or whoever you use. Excellent product which alleviates any withdrawal symptoms.

2 things.
1. Do not take pills on empty stomach and 2. if you are having goofy dreams (not nightmares), just lay in there and dream!

This is the second time I have heard that. First time was a couple hours ago.

Tried Chantix. Felt way out of sorts. And had creepy dreams. Had to stop taking it.

I started smoking in 1967 at 14. I used to lo love tiaquana smalls the wine flavored smokes. In 1972 Iwas in theAir Force were cigarettes were $0.10 a pack and they gave you a free pack with your C rations. I came home in 1978 to .59 cents a pack cigarettes. I felt that paying six times more than what they were in 1972. Took me six months and four relapses but I managed to quit by summer's end. So imagine my shock to find people paying $14 -$20. a pack.

To add to my dislike of cigarettes my younger sister died in spring 2011 from lung cancer after 30 years of smoking.

Congratulations!! My mother quit after she came down with bronchitis and couldn't smoke for 2 weeks. It wasn't easy, but she stuck to it and quit a 30-year habit. You can ABSOLUTELY keep this up, and you'll feel better and better every day because of it. Also, your rig appreciates you spoiling her now!

After smoking for over 50 years, I'm down to ~1 cigarette a day. Take a couple puff and put it out. Dramatic drop was from putting them out of sight on the counter and under a hat (not the ash tray). Thinking about and seeing them is the trigger.

Lady friend spent ~$70 on the electronic ones just days before the local and national news said they weren't really that much better for you. I'm not saying anything that would end in "and then the fight began."
