Neeranam

Just Stubbed My Last Ever Cigarette

Recommended Posts

Well, I gave up the snus 3 days ago so this is my 3rd day nicotine free and it feels good. Glad I tapered with the snus. My opinion is that there is less likelihood of relapse if there is a slow taper.

Actually, my taper was quite fast really.

I am waking up earlier than normal but feel more aware and free from the bondage of addiction.

Great news. Remember that there will.be tough times ahead. Try and predict so you can plan. Keep busy and keep us up to date. We're all with you.

Thanks Bill.

Actually last night and today I have pretty bad cravings. Today is day 5 totally nicotine free. Today is children's day so driving all over the place dropping kids off here and there. Sitting in the car waiting is when I'd normally enjoy a smoke. Kinda feel that I'm missing something. But I am not giving in, thanks for the support guys.

Identify that as a potential situation that could see you back on the weed and think about something else to do instead. I always used to smoke on my way home from work so I started to take carrot sticks with me. Not that I am a big fan of carrot sticks but it cured the oral fixation issue for me. If you are stationary then maybe get out and go for a walk?

I'm at 48 hours now. Read Allen Carrs book, watching the 5 hour 6 part web cast, that is helping with the boredom (or what in my mind is boredom). Food is tasting amazingly better, gotta watch that one. Been out on my bike a lot, like every 2 hours i grab one of my kids and go around the moo ban for an hour or so..

To be honest its the easiest thing I've ever done, and on the other hand the hardest. Been a smoker nearly 30 years now and as a diver for work it is high time i quit.

Neeranam, you are not alone mate. I'm in the same boat, same battle, war, etc....Hang in there and beat this demon..Smash its head in.

Cheers,

Ad.

The downside of giving up the Weed is that some become paranoid about any comment that doesn't suit them. If the Cap Fits..............cheesy.gif .

As long as you find it funny thats the main thing.

The cap seems to fit you quite well though..

I have now been off cigarettes for 25 days after smoking for 42 years.

Really easy using the drug Champix. I recommend it.

Been off the cigarettes for a long time now...

I had a bet with a guy in the office that if any of us get caught smoking, then we have to dress up as a woman for the week!

Enough said...

I think it helps to have some sort of forfeit!

I am now about 4 weeks totally nicotine free. I am feeling great - was well worth going through the withdrawals for. I had some real cravings a few days ago but one day at a time, I am not going to have another cigarette. The big test was when I was out at my poker game. 7 people around the table were smoking and surprisingly, I never got any cravings.

My father told me that he quit at my age, after 35 years of heavy smoking and is now pretty healthy(for his age).

Cogrtaulations.

I am so glad to hear you say that.

The hard part is over now but it does get easier with time.

I finally quit over 40 years ago for the 5th and final time and I was clear for a couple of years before that.

I was working in an electronics bay in Singapore where the temperature was set to 20C +/- 0.5C and the humidity to 70% +/- 2%. We used to go outside to get warm and I was

sitting with a mug of tea and asked my mate for a cigarette as I was bored stiff and that started me off again for about a year until I wondered one day why I was smoking and

that was the day I quit for the last time.

You CAN do it but be a little more careful than I was and tell all your friends NEVER to offer you cigarettes. Your real friends will listen and understand.

I think I'd rather it was hard so that I'll remember not to start again!

If it wasn't hard then you haven't finished yet. Check out the information on how long it takes for your lungs to clean up after smoking!
