quitting smoking

Anyone else out there trying to quit or has quit? One full week for me & I can already start to tell a difference. It's hard & I'm trying not to be crabby with the kids. I just finally got sick of feeling like crap all the time & realising how much money I'm wasting. I could be buying an extra 30 bales of hay each month, or finally buy those new boots I need!

I did copenhagen for about 20 some odd years, The first couple weeks are the worse, but just mind over matter. It was thinking about all the money I wasted that motivated me.

I'm dying to quit! Just found out about laser therapy which is reported to be very successful- going to look into it this week.

Good for you, I quit a pack a day, 35 year habit, hang on......3 years, 9 months, 5 days 21 hours and 4 minutes ago, and I'm still dam proud of myself.

If you haven't got one going I really recommend a Quit Keeper to track your progress, I used this one, Quit Meter - Quit Keeper 1.09 - Tracking your statistics as you quit smoking - Home I found it really useful in the early days, it gave me targets to aim for and let me check my progress.

Keep it going, it does get easier and you will feel better.

I quit last year in march when my hubby and I decided to try and get pregnant. Well it happened right away and therefore staying quit was really easy for me since smoking while pregnant wasn't an option. My husband struggled a little bit more but the baby kept us strong and we are still smoke free! You can do it just keep reminding yourself about the positives!

I smoked for about a year and a half/two years and had quit for about..3 weeks? I was perfectly fine, and since my dad died four months ago, I've been smoking those 4 months.
I haven't smoked for the past week, but as soon as I get around to buying some I'll probably continue until I leave for college next September..then I'll quit for good.

Quitting the first time wasn't hard for me at all. I never went through withdrawals, etc. Only thing that bothered me was when friend's would offer me one while I was on that first week of quitting. I'm bad with saying no when I want something even though I shouldn't. :p

But..I'll get there, at some point. Probably when it gets to the point that what I can physically do starts getting more difficult. Thus far, I haven't had any issues because I smoke. I've been in second-hand my whole life, I can't see me smoking a pack every week and a half as being too bad, truthfully, imo.

I was a two packs a day smoker and quit 18 months ago. Its the best thing I have ever done. Yes it is hard but so worth it in the end. Everytime I look at my mare she was worth it.

12 years for me. I quit cold turkey. If you had told me the morning I quit that it was going to be my last day of having a cigarette I would have laughed at you.
I got up, drove 150 miles to a funeral. My beloved sister in laws sister had passed away. I saw Jean, a new grandmother to her first grandchildren 6 months and 6 weeks old, laying in her casket and thought about my own new granddaughter, not quite three months old and my 4 year old daughter... Jean was a year older than I was. I never had another cigarette and have no desire too. I am told I am one of the lucky ones as the mere thought of lighting up disgusts me.

Good luck to you!

I quit in January, altho, I had quit before for 7 yrs......so take it one day at a time, but miss it sometimes, like we all do, I think. I do have electronic cigarettes that I use occassionally when I am really craving one......a few puffs on that and all is good. Rarely need it, so will lend them to my hubby in the next couple days, as he promises to quit when the new grandbaby gets here....who is now 3 days late, btw..........
