    It's been over three days since I've had a cigarette and I'm one fiending son of a bitch! Actually the first night was the worst, the craving's seem to be lightening up a little now. I quit several times before in the past but have never made it past the one week mark. The weekend's always seem to be the hardest part since I like to drink the brewskies. All I can do is try I guess. Has anyone else successfully quit? Or is currently trying to quit?

    Good luck. It's not easy. BTW, I'm a Respiratory Therapist and have my own oxygen company. If you get Emphysema, I'll give you a deal on some oxygen at a reduced rate since you are a fellow Linker [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    guys, you'll feel so much better after quitting. it's worth it. think of all the money you'll save because those little fuckers get expensive. besides, i don't want any of you ending up like a certain guitar player i idolize. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] you can do it jason, don't give in, and it'll make all the difference in the world. you'll feel kind of shitty for about a week or so i think, because your body won't be used to the lack of nicotine, but after that down period, it's smooth sailing, bro. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    i don't smoke and i never have, so my info isn't from experience, but it's what i've heard. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    How about this.

    Don't drink any water or juice, for about two days. On that second day, if you drink, get yourself a bottle of Uncle Jim, or Drink beer till you puke.

    If the first thing you wanna do in the morning is smoke, fuck it it's over...lol

    If that don't work, tattoo yourself with nicotine patches.
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!

    Dear Jason,

    It's now been 9 days since I had a cigarette. I've been following both the American Cancer Society and Am Lung Assn guidelines but they're not worth shit. The first three days are the hardest because that's how long it takes for the nicotine to quit the system. After that it's the addiction that's keeping you from your goal. I've been surviving by keeping crunchy fruits and vegetables (nuts, carrots, celery, apples, etc, gum and Twizzlers at hand. I'm drinking LOTS of liquid (I'm never without a water bottle and always near a bathroom.) I'm esp careful when doing things that used to require smoking (ie sitting at a computer, talking on the phone, and the worst -- the after dinner cigarette) I've tried to substitute new habits for the old (for example, craving chocolate mint ice cream after dinner) The craving and the moodiness have not stopped, but I'm able to go for a longer period of time not thinking about it. The Assns have some interesting ideas on how to curb the cravings, they include: doing deep knee bends or some sort of physical exercise when the craving hits; breathing as if you are smoking; making declarative statements, outloud, such as, "Goddamit, I will stop smoking"; even writing down a personal statement of why you want to quit and reading it back when you feel weak. They also say chew on cloves or cinnamon sticks (bec you don't associate the flavor with smoking).

    In my own experience, some of these things work better than others. I have cheated -- I have taken two puffs and put the cig out but I've not gone beyond that -- yet.

    I think I just might make it and I'm proud for getting this far. Be proud of yourself, too, Jason. Stick to you guns. See how much better your house, your clothes, your hair smells. This is the hardest thing I've ever done but I'm doing it. And so will you. You'll see. Good luck. Keep in touch with your progress.
