Default Re: Stop It !

I have quit many times. Quit again last Monday. 5th day off today.

Was off it for 3 1/2 years while I lived in Seattle. As soon as I got home to Oz, the beer flowed, and the smokes were lit.

I'm told it's tougher to give up than heroin. I don't doubt it.

I get massive side affects. With the increased oxygen, and lack of nicotine I shouldn't drive (or fly) for the first 2 days. I spend my day floating around. I don't sleep at all the fist night. Then I get sick. According to my doctor I had all kinds of symptoms for 5-6 months all related to quitting. Small negatives for a MAJOR positive.

Dad died from smoking at 59.

Smokes are chemically engineered VERY well !

I'd love one. I'd hate one.

Well done. That is a hard thing to do.. I gave up 3 years ago ish, and very very occasionally the pull is still ever-so-slightly there. It's like being an alchoholic perhaps - it will always be there, but continues to dilute. I would never DARE have a cigarette now though - there is no way in hell I will EVER go through through that again. shudder.

Isn't it a great feeling being free of the damn things !!

Doesn't a glass of ice-cold water on a hot day taste so good !

Rock on!

From time to time I will be in an elevator or some other situation and it's just about all I can to to keep from gaging.

The thought that I used to smell like that is almost motive enough.

Still occasionally they are soooo tempting.

Well Stevie boy, I just couldn't let you get away with this alone.

I've waited to be sure, but I'm happy to report that I also quit just over 2 months ago.

I cheated a little and got a prescription for CHANTIX.

After trying everything else this one did the trick. 2.5 packs a day gone and
save a couple hundred dollars each month. At this rate I will order some wheel pants real soon.

Two years ago I justified flight training $$$, with quitting. A very good motivation with our not cheap hobby.

How do you keep your cig lit with all that water out there anyway?

Keep it up bud.
