I'm hoping this is my last time quitting. But, I know it is hard and have done it before only to start back up later.

Dang, I would Start With A Juul.  My Mom Smoked 45 Years And Stopped With It.   Now she is off the Juul.  Took her a couple Months to Stop Smoking The Juul.

Very First Place To Start Is With Yourself.   Make Sure Your  Heart Is In the Game , Then you want Have A Problem Stopping.  Because Love Trumps Those Cigarettes.  The Heart Is A much stronger tool Than Most would Believe.    Decide To Stop Smoking There(in your Heart) First, Then The Rest will Follow.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

After  over 30 years, I went cold turkey back in February.  Smoked until I went to bed one night (smoked over a pack that day), & just didn't have one when I woke up.  No gum, vapes or anything else to waste money on.

I enjoyed smoking & still feel the temptation to have one every now & then.  Mainly when I'm out shooting pool or in the car on long trips.  I quit for my health though & the fact that the body heals better when you don't smoke.  At 50 my body needs all the help it can get.  Also looked at the fact that a single pack was costing me more than a carton did when I started.  I'm now saving over $200 a month.

Biggest thing, you have to make up your mind to want to do it.  Going in half hearted doesn't work.  That first week is rough.  The mind is much stronger than most people give it credit though, all it takes is willpower.

Good luck. smile


After over 5 years here, I finally have some bikes listed!

Drink plenty of water, that helps.
Exercise whenever you get the urge to smoke, it will take off the edge.

I quit smoking on August 3, 2007.
Immediately started chewing 4mg Nico gum for 2 years straight.
Then this March decided to start chewing 2mg gum but only 1/2 piece at a time.
I have now quit the gum and have been Nico free for 45 days.
It's a b1tch to quit the gum as well, but the gum did help me stop
the daily ritual of smoking.

Best of luck to all that try to quit

Just had a 9 year nico-free b-day           big_smile


Gnarly is when it's beyond radical, it's balls out danger, & or perfection, & or skill or all of that combined. Nobody can shred like that guy, he's gnarly.                                        \m/  ( º . º )  \m/
