OK, so here is the O-FISH-AL quitters thread for those of us who are giving up the smokes.

I know there's been quite a few to say they were going to quit in my other thread, but lets list them here. Simply copy the list from the last post and add your name to it. If you remember the last time you had a smoke, list it as well.

For those that has successfully quit in the past and are still quit, please add your name as well (we can use the encouragement).

I'm in, but I have to wait until after the week end. Jen's little sister is visiting this week end, and it's bad enough that Jen is going to have to deal with me. It wouldn't be fair to put her sis through that as well. I can be quite the AZZ HOLE those first couple of days.

I quit some time ago. Every now and then I'll have one but the urge to smoke is gone. Getting back into a fitness routine really helped me.

I had my last one on Oct. 15th 2002.

I quit because I was ready to. If you are ready to quit (really ready) then quitting is not hard. Once you get the addictive chemical traces out of your body, then it's easy. The first couple days are the hardest. Then you will notice your senses of smell and taste come back. I noticed I also slept better and had less fatigue.

Things that helped me- and I know this sounds lame- but oddly enough. . .water. I drank at least 2 quarts a day, and still do to this day. I would carry a bottle of water around with me to fidget with in an attempt to replace the fidgeting of the cirgarettes. It also helped to flush the toxins from the smoking out of my system. I did not do the patch or the gum or anything like that- I simply quit cold turkey. I believe that is the only way to truly beat smoking. Think to yourself- is that cigarette you're smoking right now the one that is gonna give you lung cancer? What about your kids/family? AND THINK OF THE MONEY YOU WILL SAVE!!! Who can't use more money?

If anyone is serious about quitting (and everyone should be) and needs a little support. . .from someone who's been there. . .feel free to PM me. I take this subject very serious and will help in any way I can.

You can count me in too. Sometime in 1984. Hypnosis worked for me.
Now, can anybody help me find all that money I saved when I quit???:confused:

I smoked for close to ten years. Decided one day that enough was enough. I used the patch for 2 weeks then went alone. That was 1/9/09. Have had one yet. Stay strong no matter what you think or feel the worst will pass.

I've never been a smoker, but I quit Diet Mt. Dew in May of this year.. :wink:

All joking aside, quitting that stuff was just about as bad.. I never realized how intense my caffiene addiction really was.. :embara: I still have my last few bottles in the pantry as a trophy. :becky:

I think nicotine, and caffeine are easily the 2 hardest drugs to kick simply because most see no immediate consequences for their addiction. I walked away from all my other demons, and never looked back, but smokes have whooped me time, and time again. I quit one time for 5 months, and I have been kicking myself in the azz for the past 9 years for lighting up that first one.
Just like any other addiction 1 is too many, and 1,000,000 is never enough.

But I do think if we all stick together we can do it. There is strength in numbers, and just like any other recovery program a solid support system is a must.
