Tips, tricks, mindset, pointers?
Honestly you just have to do it and want to do it. I didn't want to spend money anymore and I had a couple of scares with strange things that turned out to not be cancer over the last two years. Figured I had gotten lucky enough times.

and for me, i coughed up gross shit for a good 6 months before i felt like i had my lungs "back"
and ditto on the 'get a beverage while the line is short' vote to do at shows at cig break time
have you computed how much money you have saved yet? lets see, 2 months at, say, what - 3 packs a week? i just googled how much cigs are in ny
times that by $12 a pack...you have saved just under 400 bux...holy crap! your budget should be loosening up some already, no? thats quite a few nights out at good music
keep it up!

2 months. I am still waiting for the I feel healthier part http://www.gathering...ilies/dunno.gif
Month 3 you'll be home free.
When i quit and everyone would go out to smoke cigs, i would take a "second-hand smoke break" and just hang but not smoke...in my mind i would say "look at all these people sucking down nasty toxic tarry disgusting cig smoke" in my head...always helps you to remind yourself of just how mornidly disgusting cigarette and tobacco smoke truly is, and how awesome you are for not doing it, while your friends still are.

Why didn't anyone tell me how bad I smelled when I was smoking? People come back inside now and absolutely wreck.(sp?) Wreak like freak? reak? It's been a year and a half now and I totally don't notice the money saved.
that is one of my biggest pet peeves
when you try to enter or exit a venue or restaurant, you must dive through the smokers gauntlet cloud of billowing malodorous smoke
i quit so i didnt have to smell like that anymore!
all i ask is that they step to a side and keep the door smoke-free...seems common courtesy to me...i mentioned it to the owner of my favorite bar in cambridge since on a summer night, the smoke would just waft into the bar and it was unpleasant enough that i considered not going there anymore...he made a rule that folks couldnt smoke within a few feet of the door and i really appreciated it!
