Got me there T.

I quit about 20 years ago. Was doing 1.5 - 2 packs a day. All my friends smoked and two still do. I have to say, that stuff sure ages your looks too. Both of them look like they could be my parents. Steve, you should make a pact with Dust too.

Pistachios worked for me. Kept them in my pocket, my car. Kept my hands busy. Shells beats cigarette butts any day.

Steve, if I were you, I'd get a set of worry beads, Greek "komboloi", something to occupy your hands with instead of shelling pistachio nuts all the time. Just as stress relieving, while definitely less fattening :-)

Goodonya .... keep it up! My experience was that once over hump (sounds like you are!) there would still be triggers that would cause a particularly intense craving. You've done the hard part, be aware and stay strong!

then i tryed walking, and then i tryed breathing, all things good and bad need a cig to work right.
So now i need to rethink the way i do life...did you know that life has a smell to it ?
