Time to Quit!

Well, after nearly 13 years, I finally decided to quit smoking! I had the last one at about 10PM last night, and so far things have gone pretty well. I have been chewing a lot of gum while on break, and while driving around during work. I'm sure there are a number of you that have successfully quit. Any pointers that you can give me on how to stay quit, and make it through the next couple of days?

It's a tough battle, but it's mind over matter.  I quit in August and it's the best thing I could have done for myself.  First week is the toughest,  I would eat sunflower seeds until my mouth was numb.  Good luck and congrats for giving it up.

I watched the commercial of the lady who had a stroke before she quit and had to have her teenage son bath her , change her clothes, take her to the bathroom etc , etc and that was enough . Keep at it and good luck !

I have been seeing those commercials with the former smokers that have the tracheostomy (hole in the neck) and have to talk through that because of the obstructed airway.

I'm nervous to even go fishing because I always liked having a cigarette out on the boat/shore!

Been bustin my uncles and my brother. They cannot go anywhere unless they have ample cigs. Bar, resturaunt, etc.

Then get pissed when cold in pickup be side they have windows down to smoke. A hindrance in life.

Point is, once you put mind over matter you will realize how hindering cigs are and were.

You will then realize how miserable smoking bars and chocking off your breaths are when you are around smokers.

So keep at it. Don't go to smoking bars in the next month. And you won't be tempted to have a hit.

Don't wanna say good luck. Just do it.

my wife does home health.  she is constantly talking about the ills associated w/ smoking and alcohol.  if they are caring for someone who is sick before their time... 40-60 years old..., 99% of the time it is smoking or alcohol related.  even 3/4 of the illnesses afflicting people past the age of 65 are smoking related.  she says its a shame and gets really worried bout the relatives that are closing in on 40 and have been smoking since they were teenagers.  odds are that they will meet their maker way before their time on earth is/was supposed to be up.  if you don't quit for yourself, quit for those you will leave behind!

Plenty of friends and family that smoke. Personal choice and most times they are courteous. But still, I think there are better choices.

And I have no idea but when around smokers the smoke ALWAYS seems to come to me!

ain't that the truth... sitting at a table w/ 3 smokers... it is an absolute certainty that the smoke from all 3 will cut a channel right towards the non smoker and do a hula dance around his/her head before slowly making its way towards the exhaust fan!

ndbwhunter,

Good for you. 

I know too many people that faced huge medical bills because of smoking and died poor in a hospital bed.

My grandma and aunt died of lung cancer and uncle died of a heart attack, they were all heavy smokers and paid the ultimate price for it.

None of them will ever meet my children.

I am glad these commercials are working.

You are making a good decision! I grew up with two parents and two sisters that smoked.  Luckily from them I learned how nasty, disgusting, and expensive cigarettes are, so I never did start! Our house always reaked of smoke, I could not stand it!

We estimated how much my parents spent on cigarettes over a 30-40 year span. I think we came up with over 30,000 dollars......YIKES

My mom ended up quiting about 5 years ago, my sisters smoke occasionally, and my dad...well he is too damn stubborn to quit. I really hope he hangs it up soon.

I quit cold turkey about a year and a half ago.  what helped me was asking myself why I was sucking on that dirty cig butt every time I lit up, and with every drag consiously asking myself if it felt or tasted good.  eventually I thought they were gross & just quit.

It comes to you because you are the only one in the bunch with healthy lungs that gets the air moving.

My mom smoked when i was growing up and we(sister & I) always harped on her to quit. She finally did after her second grandchild was born and thankfully she has been smoke free now for 14 years.

I am sure if you really want to quit you will be able to stay off of them ndbwhunter.

That's about how everything played out last night. I just got sick of it, and while smoking throughout the day yesterday, the taste began to bother me. Did you do anything to overcome the cravings? I've caught myself reaching for the "nonexistent pack" a few times today. I'm to the point now where I'm just sick of it and want to forget I ever even started.

Espringers - my wife works home care/hospice, too, and says the same thing.    ITs estimated that 60 - 70% of cancers and a lot of heart disease and strokes are a result of smoking, though knowing this doesn't affect some people.  
ndbowhunter - you'll never regret quitting.    Healthwise you are way ahead, and money wise, you save enought to do a lot of fun things or buy a lot of fun gadgets.

Then again, I never was quite the pack a day habitual smoker.  More like 2-3 packs a week.  the hardest part was the first few times trolling cranks out on sakakawea with 2 other smokers.

Glad I never started, I have some friends who are 'recovering alcoholics' and its funny cuz when you go to AA meetings, 99% of the recovered drunks are heavy smokers. Makes you wonder if some people can ever really quit drugs, or if they just bounce around between them, but never really fix anything.

I'll fall on that grenade. How much do you pay an hour?

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

From one Bowhunter to another.....

I stopped a pack a day habit on March 7th of this year. Finally said enough I guess. I did use a little help tho. I used Wellbutrin. I took one tablet a day for a week and then 2 a day . All the while cutting back on smokes. Then on the 8th day, decided I didn't really need to have that smoke and gave not smoking a try.

After a few days, not smoking got to be a lot easier. And now several weeks later, the urge to smoke shows comes and goes so fast you hardly notice it.

It's not the first time for me. I once quit for 8 years. Swore I would never have that filthy habit again. Then after softball one night, somebody had a cigar, then the next week another cigar, and then bum a smoke, and then, and then. Moral of the story, get used to not smoking and never ever try it again. It will get you whether you want it or not.

Oh, I took the 2 tablets of Wellbutrin for about 10 days and then went back to 1. Now 2 months later, I quit them also. I'm happy, wife is happy, kids are happy, and maybe I'll be a luckier hunter because I don't smell like an ash tray anymore...

Good luck to you...

I puffed away for about 30 years.  Went thru 20 cigars a day.  Inhaled all the time.  As a former cigarette smoker that come naturaly.  Was never able to kick the habit until I got thoughly pissed at the wife for questioning my ability to quit.  What I'm saying is you will not quit until you want too with every fiber of your body. Until then you will find a way to lie to yourself that just one won't hurt.  Believe me it will.  After a period of time maybe a week or a month it will be pure stink and you will shy from people that stink up your area.  They don't realize it but they and their cloths, vehicles ect. do reek.  Have a smoker stand behind or next too you in church.  One sniff is all you will need.  One thing I did find was that I gained  about 10 minutes per hour of working ability.

Yes! I do have heart problems.  From the smoking or genetics I don't know.  Who knows, but its there.  Good luck and a strong will.  Your going to need it. I have been clean for 25 plus years.  You can if you WANT too.  Don't need the stink i've made enough for several lifetimes.

Hate the adds on T. V. Tired of listening too them and figure they are a waste of taxpayer dollars.  They are good for the add companies.  Enough soapbox.

i quit about 10 months or so ago, i cheated tho, i got a chantix RX from the doc,  everyone always said there are a buncha side affects from it such as wild and vivid dreams and i was actually lookin forward to those dreams,  i was disappointed tho as i never did have any of them.  most people need the chantix for 8-10 weeks, i was good after about 3 weeks.  best decision i ever made,  saving lotsa money and not shortening my life by 7 minutes for every time i lit up.  the hardest part for me was when i would go to the bar wether it be for drinking or bartending,  so i quit goin all together.... i've been to the bar 3 times since i quit smoking and that has made it waaaay easier. and my habit was about a pack a day on a 10 hour work day.  the 16 -18 hour days was 2 packs a day.

Women---they absolutely love it.  Ever notice in the winter, how cool the people look that are huddled outside of buildings?   Flame on!

A buddy of mine decided he had to be motivated to quit so he figured how many days of smoking would equal the cost of a Benelli SBE II and after that many months had passed, bought a shiny new boomstick.

 I am on two weeks since my last cig today.  Smoked two packs a day for about 15 years.  I too am taking chantix.  Working great. After 10 days i was down to about 4 smokes a day and just said the hell with it and threw them out.  The dreams for me are pretty crazy and I can't sleep hardly at all.  I am going to start not taking them at night hoping that helps.  I have been chewing tons of gum but the last couple days really slowed down on that too.  Cravings are still there but getting better. My wife smokes and after about two three days of me not smoking it really stinks when she comes in the house after smoking.

Good luck!!!

As did mine. My girlfriend works as an RN at Medcenter in Bismarck, and she smokes as well. I told her that I was quitting last night, and basically made her quit with me.

Do you have a family? Do you care about them? If you give two cents you will not be selfish with your disgusting habit. Don't purposely cut your life short and deny kids or spouse that time!

Smoking is like a game of Russian roulette. Would you play that? put bullets in 5 of six chambers. Those are the odds smoking won't end up sending you to a premature dirt nap!

Drink Lots of Water! Carry around a big jug if you need to, but always have water with you. My Wife quit 11 days ago and she is still at the hospital. Wouldn't reccomend crushing L-1 vertabae and going through emergecy surgery 6 days later to anyone, but so far it is working for her. Thank-you for making this post. It made me realize that if she can kick cigs, I can quit chewing. But I'm not giving up beer! ; )

I tried the Chantix once and I was either going to kill myself or someone close to me, I am not joking so I stoped taking that.  This time its all cold turkey been a week and I feel I am doing really well.  The bars in Minot sucked bad this weekend, cant smoke any where inside in Minnesota so that was a sucker.  I too think my wife stinks bad when she comes in from a smoke

everyday you don't smoke put 5 bucks in a jar or whatever a pack costs  it does add up to be a lot of money  I lost mom and dad and brother and grandfather all from smoking.  I have never smoked  but know it is going to be hard without some kind of help weather seeds or friends  Do not hang around with anyone who smokes for a while and tell them why.  If they are your friend they will help you if not you don't need them as friends

Do a lot of running.  Run until you can't feel your legs anymore and your lungs hurt like hell.  Then you won't want a cigarette.

If you have kids just look them in the eye and think how they would fell if you werent around anymore cause you smoked, thats what i did and thats all it took.YOU HAVE TO WANT TO QUIT, and if you think about smoking you just tell yourself, cigs arent apart of my life any more so quit thinkin about them.
