Still not smoking!

Quit December 25, 2011. Have some cravings after dinner but have been able to resist. How are all the ex smokers doing?

hi; and congrats, and keep up the good job.
I quit Sept. 28 so i'm 3 months ahead of you. And it does eventually get easier.
But i still have urges every once in a while. Just have never given in to them.

So i think this puts me at day 138.

Hopefully no one is going out for sneaks.(sheryl). lol.

I smoked for like 38 years, then took chantix for 5 days. Then put the chantix away and finished quitting cold turkey.

So it can be done, and i hope the best for you and everyone else who is quitting or those who are thinking about quitting.

Smoking most affects the entire human body and when it is put under stress and in this case with a toxic concoction such as carbon monoxide, cyanide, tar, formaldehyde and other chemicals and the brain diverts vitamins away from human skin to be most used elsewhere.

e-cigs

Had 3 cigs or less everyday for 3 weeks after sept surgery. Switched over to the e-cig. Snuck my last drag at a halloween party. Since then moved from high, to medium, and now on lowest nicotine level. In a month or 2 hopefully switch to zero nicotine.

Its not cold turkey but it works for me!

I quit on 24th of January

I quit on 24th of January 2011 so it's been quite a while now. I haven't smoked since then although I still get some random urges for nicotine after dinner or when staying with friends who smoke. Apart from that, it's all okay for me. I have noticed significant increase in my breathing capability when swimming and I can definitely resist longer underwater now. Hoping everyone gets to be like this, if not better!

That's great. I am happy for

That's great. I am happy for you. Quitting smoking does have side effects but these effects are not long lasting. Smoking has very malefic effect on body, it leads to various types of cancer. So, one should quit this habit.

i am so jealous of you guys.

i am so jealous of you guys. Been smoking for 6 years now, I want to stop it, but don’t know where to start.
