    I am now officially 22.5 days cigarette smoke free! Ya never do it until your ready, and finally it hit me.

    Ill make this short as possible..... I started smoking in early to mid 88' to about mid 89' maybe like a couple smokes a day at most. I quite in 89' a few days before school started, cause I was joining the track team (I was very athletic all my life). Then one fateful day in 92' , about 2 months after grad, I started cause I was stressed and a bit of peer pressure ( not much though), cause of a guy really....pretty stupid!

    That was a few packs a week, then over the next 8 years I worked my way up to a pack a day, even though I was still in training to a Arobics Instructor (luckly for me no one could even tell I smoked). Anywho, it's been like 12 years now, I am 30 yrs old (almost 31) and I am sick of it. I started on the patch, and only did it for 2 weeks, cause I realized the patch is only a cruch, it's all in your head that you need it.

    Still every day I want one, a christmas party is coming up in 2 weeks, thats my test!

    Yee hah, Im still goin, and to all of you who are thinking, or trying to do it..... I will not wish you luck, cause that has nothing to do with it, I send you good thoughts and vibes :x: :) :wiggle: :rofl: :x:

    Nice. I had the hardest time quiting. Then my wife told me she was pregnant.. That was a new motivating factor for me. Smoke free for 5 years now. The first 3 weeks was the worst. I had to quit drinking for a year too. Every time I had a beer I would want to smoke. Now I can drink, or go to the local bar and have a drink with some friends and be fine, not even crave. GL to both of you. :)

    I stopped Oct. 26, 2004. I feel soooooooo much better physically.
    I am still a little withdrawn, kinda in my own little world most of the time,
    but I am coping fairly well emotionally. I've passed the casino (plenty of smokers
    there) and bar test. I still want one every now and then, but I tell myself that
    its poison!

    Good Luck

    my dad has been smoking for like 40 years and he was able to quit. I read tht after 10 years virtually all negative health effects of smoking are gone.!
