So as I have mentioned in the Cassady thread and on FB I am working on quitting smoking. Today I hit 9 days. Creating this thread to keep me on track. Fuck you smokes, you won't get me again. :pimp:

just do the math
how much money have you saved already?!?!?! :wink:
never mind your lungs clearing out and you not having stinky hair/clothes and being more kissable
just sayin...its important to be kissable! :devil:

keep it up, man...you are over the hump and although i cant promise that your craving will abate completely, would you ever want to have to go through the initial quitting part again? no, right? you got this! :clapping:

Make it 3 months, and it becomes easier to NOT smoke than to puff one.

In the mean time, masturbate furiously

I am going out for the first time, this weekend, since I quit. I canceled going to the post show party at my friends' Shannon and Kurt's as they smoke in their place. Not ready to be around that. Kia is in charge of helping to keep me in line at the biodiesel show. :pimp:

my advice, for what's it's worth - wait a little while before trying to drink/party and not smoke. lowered inhibitions and all that.

i'm really proud of you and glad you're doing this, Greg. congrats! :)

Yeah I realize I have to be very conscious of my actions on Saturday. Since I am skipping the pre/post party I have to drive an hour home anyway so that will keep me mellow.

Good job dude :beer: and Jennie is right. it will take a while to be OK with being out and saucing, and not grabbing a smoke.

it only gets easier. pretty soon you are going to want to puke even just walking past a group of lolButtsSmokers.

Congrats :) Its not easy, but it really does get easi-er as time goes on. I can no longer stand the smell of them...literally makes me queasy
Best advise I recieved, is that its like a wave...can't fight it, gotta just breathe while you ride it out

very proud. want to quit and procrastinating it.

My hospital shifts I don't smoke for ten hours straight and I rarely even think about having one during my shift. That first butt when my shift is over is pretty epic though. :lol:

We all need to quit. I have visions of camp hidey at Wormtown and literally 9 out of 10 of us is sitting around laughing and smoking cigs until 5 in the morning. pretty gross on all of us and considering we're all getting lolfuckingold and losing the odds with our health as the days go on, time for all of us to stop.

glad you're taking charge brother.

yeah I decided to stop because I always said I would quit by 30. I'm 34. Better late then never. I think it's also built a bit of self confidence that I have lost since moving home. hopefully will help to propel other things in the right direction.

I always said I'd quit by 30 too. I'm 37 now. I quit for 3 months at 34, but have been a heavy smoker outside of that all of my thirties. So clearly an epic fail on my part. I'm going to feel like a real asshole if I wake up at 40 and I'm still a smoker. So fucking stupid. It's like I'm playing Russian Roulette with getting lung cancer. It's pretty rare, but I've x-ray'd patients at the hospital as young as 44 who have lung cancer from smoking. Time for me and everyone I love to stop. Glad you're taking the lead greg. :heart: I need to follow you right soon

One trick I used when going out or driving was to keep something (like a lighter) in my hand, sometimes holding it like a butt.
also replaced cigg smoke with alternative smokables when cravings got bad

Nicotine is a bitch :angry:

Yeah I think I will arrive at the show later then usual. It's the standing around time, considering almost everyone I know smokes that will suck.
