    I QUIT SMOKING!!

    Hey guys. i started a thread over a year ago or whatever, didnt feel like searching it.

    I tried quitting with willpower several times, i read the book "the easy way to stop smoking", tried patches and gum etc. Nothing worked.

    Recently i just got fed up with it, and i have this nasty scar on my face from a street fight i got into in september. The scar wasnt healing well, so i bought mederna, vitamin e oil etc. Wasnt working well. Then i read that scars heal a lot better if you dont smoke.

    So thats all it took. fucking amazing. i just stopped for 2 weeks. then made it to my third. now im over a month deep.

    Thank god!! I dont think ill ever smoke again

    Just felt like venting and letting everyone know its possible! You really just need a reason! :hs:

    UPDATE: 1-31-08 still not 1 cig. YEEEEEE!

    I still haven't made it longer than a week at a time without lighting up, myself, but that's mostly because there's at least one hour a week in which I could really use some instant sanity. I guess for me it's always been a form of medication, what with the family history of depression on one side and neurosis on the other side. (Yay!) I don't stomp around outside wishing I could have a smoke anymore, though.

    Yeah, my ranting aside, congrats on quitting. Did you have any chest pain, out of curiosity?

    I fucking hate stoges man, so seeing people actually commit to bettering themselves is always a plus in my book :thumbup:

    Congrats.

    I'm on day 4 with the gum. Doing fine. Having some cravings, but the gum takes care of that. The hardest part is I was smoking doing everything.. so out of habit when ever I do anything I reach for a cig and there's nothing in my pocket. Kind of makes me sad, but happier for the long run.

    The hardest part is the bar/club/partys

    Once you can beat that, your set.

    awesome job man. I quit a month ago also and I feel better than ever. Since then, I've started to workout and clean up my diet. Now I know what it means when non smokers say "I can taste my food"
