After many years of using various forms of nicotene I have decided to cease all use of patches, gum, lozenges, cigars, snuff, etc..  I am now looking for a fight.Any takers?

I've decided to become BETTER at ingesting nicotine.No more wimping out. Chew, smoke, and cigars, at twice the dosage. When I get hit by a car, lay there dying in the street, I'll reflect upon all that guiltless pleasure I had, and the lack of correlation to my demise.

Spamfilter, I've heard the first 30 days are really rough. The next 30 days are also rough, and you think you've got it licked, so you're vulnerable. When you have gained 20 pounds after 90 days, you really question the wisdom of the health attributes relative to your nicotine free lifestyle. It's harder to lose 20 pounds, than quitting smoking. Talk about a vicious cycle huh??

Quite honestly I am starting to believe that my addiction was only an addiction because I believed I was addicted.  I am in my 5th day and although I have had difficult moments I must say that there have been many things in my short life that have turned my suck-o-meter up a lot higher than it has been over the past five days.  It hasn’t been easy but it hasn’t exactly been delirium tremors either.

Good for you. I quit drinking a couple years ago for about 4 months, to make sure I could. No problem, but man was I surprised at what a daily part of life alcohol is. It was literally parading around me, free to boot, almost comical.

I quit 20 years ago. Hardest thing i ever did. Went cold turkey from 3 packs a day. I was the Marlboro man.  After about 2 weeks of no smokes, i started running. That really really helped with the addiction. Helped keep the weight off too (at the time)After about two years i felt like i had never smoked (mentally).I am convinced that if i had continued smoking, i would be dead today. Hope thats some motiviation.

I quit drinking and smoking last year...worst ten minutes of my life.I think that was the late great George Burns.Seriously though...I smoked for 16 years before I quit. Took me two tries the final one was using the patch and smoking occassionally...lasted about two days and then it was just like "Ok I'm done" and that was it. I still smoke today about 2-4 days in the year only when I get together with a group of childhood friends for a guys weekend in Atlantic City and thats it. That weekend is the only time and I really don't have a problem not smoking the rest of the year...in fact I don't really enjoy it that much during that weekend either.

I remmebered when Mmy dad stopped, it took him a lot of chocolates and candies before he can say that he was clean... slowly but surely you'll get there... he never once looked back or was tempted to do it again... pretty cool, if I may say so myself...
