Y'all have fun, lord knows I do. But to remind everyone, the reason I started this was as a thread for people to share their challenges and offer mutual support.

It doesn't matter what, why, or how. People have things in their lives they want to get rid of. Some are hard to do.

All I would ask is that we don't make fun of anyone's addiction/vice.

Unless someone comes out and says they're addicted to foot porn. Make fun of those weirdos. Strange folks, them foot lovers...

I quit after 13 years of smoking and/or chewing. I went back and fourth between to two and at times would do both (just not simultaneously). I never thought I would be qble to quit but here is how I did it successfully:

First I decided to actually give it it up. I still wanted to use nicotine and didnt "really" wsnt to give it up. But I decided I would at least try.

Second I set a reasonable quit date in the future, e.g. 3 months. During that three monts I mentally prepared my self and 1) told myself how much better I would feel if I quit and other similar thoughts & 2) I told EVERYONE I knew I was quitting. I made it a matter of public record by putting my quit date on facebook and I knew that on that quit day EVERYONE would be expecting me to quit and then after that date they would all be asking about my progress.

On my quit date I got a lot of support and a lot of people encouraged me.

Even now, approaching my 9 month deadline I still get the urge to smoke. However I just have to take a deep breath and refocuse my attention. Its not the nicotine anymore its my brain that wants the cigarette and when you know that you have more control over your temptations.

In the end, even though I never really wanted to quit but decided to try to quit I've learned something... you can't quit by trying. Trying to quit is not quitting. The only way to quit is to quit.

I hope I was able to encourage someone!

high fructose really is bad for you. i noticed a DISTINCT difference in how i felt as i came off that fructose binge. i no longer feel the crave that I HAVE TO HAVE A SODA NOW!!! feeling. going days or weeks without drinking fake sugar substitutes is no problem.

its nice to be able to actually enjoy a soda because i like it, not because i HAVE to have one.

with gluten i physically cant eat it without being sick, but sodas i can control what i drink just by avoiding high fructose soda i dont feel a need for it.

you do know that there is no such thing as "natural sugar"...even the "throwbacks" have manufactured/refined sugar.

Just saying.

There is a push now to ban sugars....the "sky is falling crowd" is trying to say "sugar" is a toxic substance. This all started with the HFCS hype.

The gluten i understand, you body just doesnt produce the correct chemicals (the specific names elude me at this time) to break down the wheat.

Been there and done every thing but hard drugs... Quit drinking for seven years and started again. The same with smokes.... The last time i said I quit, was on a fishing trip. I was fishing in my hot spot and damn near sunk the boat with red fish, black drum, sheeps head, speckled trout and flounder......And it wasn't a small boat......Ps. I did quit sleeping with my wife, she snores way to loud to get any sleep.....
