Default Quit Smoking support thread

Courtesy of Dunerunner, I decided to make this thread.
If you need help to quit smoking, post on up to the East Side. [/The Jeffersons]

I only have a couple packs left.

Now, instead of smoking, what kind of "habits" would make a good substitute? I'm not much of a gum chewer, nor do I want to keep buying packs of gum.

Any ideas,comments,insults...I'm ready.

S.S.

I had quit and then started up again when my wife became ill. I planned on stopping again this week. I'll quit with you. We can support each other in this deal.

May I suggest Tuesday the 18th for a quit date? That way we can indulge for one more day and then give it up.

No pressure.

Congratulations on making the decision!! Now, decide what gun you're going to buy with the money you would have spent on Cigarteets!!

I quit 11 months ago on the 24th of this month . As they were putting me in medi vac hellicopter with a massive heart attack I swore to God I would never again smoke if I survived . Now I get nauseated even walking past a smoker .

I had smoked 2 to 3 packs a day for 43 years .

I smoked 1 1/2 to 3 packs a day for 45 years. My wife and I quit COLD TURKEY 18 montrhs ago. I gained 35 pounds... now I'm working on losing that weight.

You have got to get your mind set to quit and stay off of them. Otherwise, you'll fail.


I think it's fantastic you guys decided to quit! I'm here to help...

It's been 14 months since I last smoked a cigarette. When I smoked I couldn't barely run 1/2 of a mile.

Now I am running 4-5 miles at a time (I sometimes do it twice a day now), with a 25 pound backpack on. My legs will give out before my cardio does.

Quitting smoking will be the BEST thing you can do!!!!!!!!

My wife is ill and sadly, I will be her caretaker as her condition worsens. I need to be as healthy as possible so I can be there for her.

Well, I dont smoke a whole lot. Ive had my current carton for at elast 2 weeks. I still have 2.5 packs left. So it'll be at least another week until these are gone.

I only smoke when...

1. I'm furiously pissed off
2. driving
3. at camp by the fire

S.S.
