  2. smoking can have realy bad effects on the smoker n those around them.. glad u made the choice to stop.. wish u good luck as u keep strong and continue being committed to ur new decision....
     
  3. I congratulate you on your decision to quit--I'm sure it'll be full of bumps along the way--but hang in there! It's really worth it for you to quit!

    I saw a real "healthy" pink lung and a real "black" smoker's lung when I was a kid. I think that moment was what made me a non-smoker for life. The difference is amazing...

    im using Nicotine Patches and mannnnnn im dying over here, feeling heat, shaking a little, feeling dizzy, and nauseas... :cry:
     
  11. Congrads to everyone.. I quit 1 month ago after smoking for 10 years !!! My advice if you are using something to help.. (ie. the patch, or gum) is to try COMMIT lozenge.. they worked great !!! :heart:
     
  12. Congrats on quitting. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made.:biggrin::yes:
     
  13. I gave up 2months ago... The first 4days were really hard! after that it gets easy, just say NO every time someone offers you a smoke.
     
  14. Congratulations! Good move! Enjoy your life without smoking....
     
  15. Hooray! I am working on quitting smoking too. A few years ago I was smoking 10-15 a day, which was really bad. Then I cut back except when I went out for drinks. But a few months ago, I started bringing nicotine gum with me when I went to the bars and it really works for me! I was on vacation last week and only cheated once (had two cigarettes at a bar). It felt great to be walking back to my hotel and not smell like smoke or be coughing.

    Frankly, if I can stay at the point where I only have one or two cigarettes every now and then (maybe a total of six in a month) I will be perfectly happy to do that the rest of my life. I just don't think that few will hurt. Meanwhile, most times that I want a cigarette, I just opt for nic gum instead. It's great to use while working, or in a social setting where you have a drink and crave that accompanying cigarette, but don't want to cheat. Now my biggest concern is getting addicted to the gum!! But at this point I usually only have between one and four pieces a day.

    Anyway, I guess it's an ongoing process and different approaches work for different people. But the less the better:smile:
