June 29, 2004, my 2nd birthdate! Celebrate it with a cake/cocktails every year!! Here is my secret: I still get a slight craving every now and then, when I do, I repeat over & over, silently (sometimes aloud) "Cigarettes are cat turds, cigarettes are cat turds" . . . as long as needed til craving passes. It usually passes reeeeeaaaaaallllllllll quick!!

The thought of actually puttin a cat turd in my mouth grosses me the f**k out!! Then I realize that it may be healthier to suck on a cat turd than a lit cigarette!

My apologies to all the smokers that enjoy (like I used to) and want to continue smokin'.

Thats too funny! From hence forward, my cravings for a pull off a cig will now be known as 'puffing cat turds'. And as the man in charge of scooping my cat's turds every morning let me tell ya it's a ****ty job!

40 years ago this month I quit. I had the urge for about 5-7 years, but it gets easier to ignore. Try changing what you are doing, that helped me. It is worth the effort.

Good luck.

Quit 21 years ago, cold turkey, after 40 years of smoking two and a half to three packs a day. I was really uncomfortable for about a month, and then it was gone. No cravings since.

It was too late--I have severe emphysema, bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis and bronchiectasis. BUT QUITTING WAS STILL ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I EVER DID FOR MYSELF. It's right up there with quitting drinking (which made me break out in these strange places---Birmingham, Cleveland...), adopting two fantastic kids who are now 48 and 46, and marrying my final wife. Oh, and allowing myself to be adopted by my little rescue dog.

Today when I'm around a buddy of mine who smokes the hell out of unfiltered Camels I think, "My God, that's how I smelled for forty years!"

I'll pass the "cat turds" line along to some friends who want to quit. That's great!

Congrats guys!!! I've been off the stick for about 3 years, and my wife has been off for about 9 months. It sure does feel better and absolutely more cash for other interests!!

You can do it!

I celebrated 6 years of not smoking on 2/12/2013. I went cold turkey...no patches, no pills, no gum, no nothing. It is not an easy thing to do. I had the distinct feeling that I was losing my best friend. A companion that went with me every where. My buddy in the car, my friend to console me when I got upset or mad. I would dream about smoking and wake up in the morning tasting tobacco. All of this last about 18 months to 2 years. It wasn't until my 3rd year that all of the dependency habits were really gone. I did gain weight, because I didn't have my little buddy telling me that mealtime was over. I have since lost the 30 pounds I gained and am back to my normal weight. Quitting is hard, it is a true addiction in all aspects. Anyone really serious about quitting, I wish them nothing but luck and God speed in thier efforts. If you can join a support group (which I didn't do) it might help more than just going it alone.

If the health part doesn't move you, let's try this! I used to smoke 1 1/2 packs/day. Marlboro, premium price cigs. Today they cost ~ $5/pack. $5 x 1.5=$7.50x365=$2,737.50 every year!!!!! How much ammo/guns/preps/vacation/gifts/etc. does that buy you & yours? Think about it!
