Default Re: Stop It !



I quit about 8 years ago, then started up again in 2003. Finally quit again about 2 years ago. All I can say is it just gets easier after the first couple days.

Every now and then the craving still comes back for me, but it only lasts a moment.

Keep it up, its harder than passing a check ride, but worth it.

thanks, I'll do that as well. the DAY 2 is gone and I'm in day 3 now
update......waves are 30 min apart but still have a bit of a bite to them.
there are about 6 people in the house that I'm staying in and all are very supportive.
my nose is going crazy with all the smells.
i think I'll have the boat done soon so Catalina isl will be fun and I'll save 15 buck's on smokes wile I'm there
i think i didn't smoke over 80 cigs now (lungs are getting lots more air)
i hope Sunday is as good as today !

Good for you, Steve. I know what you're going through (having done it a number of times ).

How about this for a suggestion...

Post here each day telling us something (airplane related ) that you did rather than smoke a cigarette.

Turn the energy into building rather than eating.

i was hopping on a ride in a long today but i think the RG may be going though withdraws or somthing
the "MOM" here is a RN and she tells me things about the people she works on that are sick from smoking . it helps
i like to think about all the good im doing for my body and i dont need ash-trys for the plane. 10 hours into day 4 and all is good
its morning and i've been up for 30 min and not a wave in site
today should be a pice of cake

Steve, although I don't smoke anything anymore, I do miss miss a good Fuente or Macanudo. I believe it was Mark Twain who said it best..."Quitting smoking is the easiest thing in the world to do. I ought to know...I've done it 135 times!

Steve-now THAT is a MOTIVATION.
Get your mind wrapped around THAT visualization, and that could help power you up.
Dancing bannnnana worthy for sure.

My wife quit smoking shortly before we got married. She asked why I rarely kissed her on the lips. My reply was kind of rude but truthful. I told her 'Honey, I love you but it's like kissing an ashtray'. She's been smoke free for over two years.

Fight the good fight man. I smoked Djarums for a while...it was the money that was my first motivation. The second was when my girlfriend said she didn't like kissing an ashtray. I quit cold. It's hell, but it's worth it.
