Cold turkey after I watched a guy die of lung cancer from the day he was diagnosed until he died right in front of me. Horrible death. That was April, 1982.That's awesome!!! Question for all that have quit.......besides will power and the desire to quit, what were some of the most effective things you guys used to help kick the habit?
Oh I hear ya there amigo - I quit (6) years ago and smoked a pack a day for almost (13) years - Most of the guys I ride with still smoke and whenever we break, they light up - Every now and then, I catch that smell and miss it but have not even hit one in actually almost (7) yearsYes I still miss my smokes and my Cigars on occasion.
try quitting after almost 44 years it was a bitch.Oh I hear ya there amigo - I quit (6) years ago and smoked a pack a day for almost (13) years - Most of the guys I ride with still smoke and whenever we break, they light up - Every now and then, I catch that smell and miss it but have not even hit one in actually almost (7) years
Now Chewing Tobacco.....that was a whole other nightmare and was almost harder for me to quit then smoking - God I have issues.....
CONGRATS!!!!!!!!! Will be 31 years in June & I have never missed them. As someone else said; Don't look back & most importantly, don't ever try "just one" Congrats again.Well, I've been threatening for years, but I'm finally done. It's been seven weeks since I've had a cigarette and I feel like a totally new person. Lungs clear, sinuses clear, taste buds... tasting more, sense of smell becoming sharper every day. I actually can't even stand the smell of a cigarette now. 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
