Good luck!! I quit about 7 years ago. I used the patch and it really helped fight the cravings. It's always with you though. There are times even today that I think wish I had a smoke right now. Stick with it, everyday is a victory!!

I find it very hard to quit so much respect to everybody who has quit. My dad quit after 30 years if smoking. I guess when the Dr. come in and tells you that you have cancer you would too. He beat the cancer and hasn't smoked in 4 years.

I quit cold turkey in 1982. Yes, it was terribly hard at times but once I made up my mind that I would never put another cigarette in my mouth, I just kept telling myself that it would be worth it and today I have to say it was. My dad died with emphysema and a more cruel death I cannot imagine. Keep it up, you won't regret it.

Default Re: Quitting Smoking.

I had quit one time for about 2 years and then got so irritated at work that I chain smoked 5 cigarettes. Smoked for another 2 years or so. My cigarette company actually helped me quit. I helped my dad move and my step mom bought me a back of cigarettes. It was right when camel lights were rebranded. She bought me some camel something lights and they were nasty. Smoked one and threw the pack away and since then I have had 2 cigarettes in almost 6 years. I also think the 2 week was the hardest. The first 3 or 4 days was hard because of the nicotine but the 2 week was the hand habit

Stick with it. I know how hard it is I quit for good January 1, 2000. This time I used the prescription Zyban. Had some of the side effects and had to cut the dose in half, but the cravings were not there after 7 days of taking it and smoking, then stopping on New Years Day 2000 (ahem no Carolina Bowl game that year. We all remember 1999).
Today it should be easier socially than it was years ago since the habit is not acceptable like it was. It will be hard for young people to fathom, but back in the 70's you could smoke in class at Carolina if the Professor allowed it. Had a Tu-Thursday hour and a half class in one of the basement tiered classrooms in the "old" BA building. My buddy and I used to make sure we had a full pack between us and an ashtray. Russell House as well I think. For sure at the student bar in there. How can you drink and not have one?
Anyway...Good Luck

I did it cold turkey. Remember, after 24 hours it is psychological. You already have it beat.

Yeah, I quit smoking after 5 years of it. I was in my first year of law school. Dunno how the hell I pulled it off but the lovely lady who would become my wife would never have given me the time of day when we met because I smoked. Funny enough, the version of me quitting smoking almost lost her too because I was such an unholy butthole from withdrawals. It all worked out for the best, though!!

I'm rooting for you, buddy-roh!! It's so, so, so worth it and you can do it, no doubt.
