I think that's the only reason I still smoke... I enjoy the act of smoking( along with the taste etc... ) that and when I quit... I get pounding sinus headaches
That said, Congratulations to all of you guys! Quitting is tough, and you are setting a great example

In April of 2011 I slipped on some water and landed on my elbow. I tore my rotator cuff. I could not sleep with all the pain. I when to a real a-- hole doctor that said he would not operate on me until I quit smoking. At the time I had smoked for 56 years. I loved to smoke. The doctor said that healing was about 50-50 chance with smokers. He said that he only operates on non smokers so he has 100 % success rate. He gave me a prescription for “Chantic” and six weeks later I had stopped smoking. I had 100% successful operation on my rotator cuff. I still have the craving but it does not last long. I know now that I will never start again. We have cats so I may think of them the next time.

I quit in 91 or 92 can't remember for sure. After about 6 months non or ex smokers would ask in a very condecending manor " don't you feel better since you quit smoking?" My answer was "Hell no! I gained 20 pounds I didn't get this out of breath when I smoked!" I never have been able to get rid of those 20 pounds.

When you quit smoking you QUIT. You are edgy and cranky and not fun to be around but you don't smoke. It can be done. You can't "not eat" like you can "not smoke". I have no doubt that I am better off with a few extra pounds than I would be smoking, at least I have convinced myself of that.

I've been trying dude, I hate it, it's nasty and unhealthy and it shows a lack of self control but god dammit, I love to smoke a cigarette, especially if I'm irritated or just got done with sexy time, in-between jobs at work, if you smoke you know what I'm saying.

If I didnt smoke while I was at work im pretty sure that I would get fired in a week. I would be the biggest ******* anyone has ever seen. I need to quit but everyone around me smokes, im just gonna have to stop one day and never look back.

Why would you want to bury a perfectly good set of lungs?

I smoke at work on the boat. Around 30 packs in 2days. When I'm home 2 weeks I hardly smoke. Yet when I'm on the boat, I have to. Otherwise I may hurt someone and get fired.

I took Chantix for 30 days and I'm now 3 months without smoking. Chantix really helped. I still want a cig from time to time but I can ignore it. This time I've quit for real.
