My surgeon said he wouldnt replace my hip if I was smoking, so that was my biggest motivation.Only been a little over 3 mos. for me but I have not had a want to have one and I quit cold turkey like many others here.

Just truly got tired of being a slave to it and put it down. I'm vaping as a crutch, but I've weaned the nicotine level down to zero already so that part is at least out of the way. Just wanted to share my triumph real quick. It needed to be done, I'm just glad that certain things led to it happening and I found the strength to stand behind my decision like I did. Thanks for listening to the rant.
Carry on, and see y'all in Kerville


Blessings, Zinc -

congrats on your accomplishment. I stopped smoking after an accident I had decades ago. I wish everyone follow your footsteps.
