I quit July 4, 2006 after 20 years plus of smoking and many attempts at quitting. You can do it! PM me if you want to know more about how I did it.

Thanks, Chantix has been working great for me. My sister-in-law and her drama has been my only real source of stress. I think it was easier to get over the first 3 days because I made my quit date the day we left the lake, the change of routine and scenery really helped. Day 12 and going good. Thanks for your support

Congrats and Keep up the good work!!!

I quit April 29th, 2007, after 25 years of the habit and numerous attempts to quit! This time God and I did it! Cold turkey!! It also helped to have the support of a loving, non-smoking, new husband! lol

awesome! as i say with a ciggarette in my mouth........
ive read that the average person trys quiting at least 5 times before they are actually sucessful, and that once ya get past the first 48 hours, its MUCH easier

Awesome!! WTG! I quit cold turkey on November 22, 1997! The first few days are the hardest. After the first month it was smooth sailing for me. I was in college at the time and the hardest times were when I went out with friends.

Feb 18th 2007 was my quit date, I cheated with anything & everything I could, chantix got me off...I'm still cheating & suck on nicotrol inhalers...at least those won't hurt me & Dr. says I can have those the rest of my life...still miss those smokes though. I promised myself I could smoke again when I turned 70, LOL!

My motivators were when Ohio went smoke free...and knowing my DH is going to want to do a lot of traveling once we retire & it wouldn't be fair of him to have to push me & my oxygen tank, ya know? Plus the stink of smokers...

I was amazed, 30 yrs of smoking & within 2 weeks my cough was GONE!
