Over New Years run I realized I hardly missed smoking anymore.  I had my very brief moments of panic and desire but for the most part I hardly even thought about it.  :jamguy:  Also all my searches seemed to go much quicker now that I am a non smoker.  Partly because they didn't have to look through my smokes, but I think they def search smokers harder in general.  This is at least what I observed at Best Buy for Biscuits.

It gets easier everyday. I had a few at nikki n capts a coupla weeks ago and before that not one since NYE.

 

I dont even crave them anymore. It gets easier. The second quit was even easier than the first. I playes a counting game. Whenever I craved. 

 

2 shots of jager

4 b#$% pulls, man.

6 beers, man.

Mkay?

 

Somehow repeating this, as annoying as it could be, was crucial in my ability this time. Glad to be free again.

 

How you holding up, Greg?

Still have not smoked since City Bisco in October.  And I have partied a lot.  I tried to cheat two weeks ago in Maine when I was up all night and everyone had gone to bed.  But luckily my friends are smart and put them away.  Overall it's quite easy now.  It's more reminding myself I don't need to do it but overall I am good.

It's actually pretty fun when I see people I have not seen in a long time and they find out I no longer smoke.  The looks of shock are usually pretty awesome.

I'm on board here. Stopped on Jan 9, mostly because medical professionals were unanimous that my healing from a wound would go much quicker minus the smokes.  It was amazingly easy at first, then harder, then I started the Zyban thing on Jan 17 and that made it WAY easier and I go through till mid feb before my first cheat, but it was a small cheat when out drinking and I didn't even smoke a whole one.

 

The last few days have been tougher. I bought a pack, smoked 3 of them, got disgusted by it and threw the pack away. Then a big steak and red wine meal made me buy another pack that is still in my possession but only two are missing. 

 

Fahk dude, it's a process alright.

Yes, now imagine five months in and wandering into the "dark tent".  Condor's Marlboros didn't stand a chance.  :lol:

i'll just stay here and be supportive of gregoir. you can doooo it buddy.

 

i'm on day 3 of only ecigs.  verdict isn't in yet.... def feel better in the morning without all that smoke. it's hard to take a hit though... without the ember it's hard to tell when to stop pulling and i end up coughing.

 

I suppose it's the same as the patch though... just delivering your nicotine in a healthier way.  anyone else e-smoking their shit?

I tried the ecig for a bit but had the same complaints as you or the battery was always dead when I needed it so then I just went to cold Turkey land.

we've been using ecigs occasionally for a little while, mainly for venues where you aren't allowed to go outside to smoke. it's ok, just not quite the same.

day 7 only ecgis... can't believe i didn't try these before now. haven't had a single craving. one cartridge has lasted all week.

 

never a very heavy smoker... around 5-6 a day... but pretty much daily for 15 years.

 

def recommend for anyone trying to quit. you're still putting nicotine in your system but no tar, smoke, chemical accelerants  etc.

Still not smoking though it seems to have become harder again lately.  With the nice weather, my desire to smoke has come back a bit.  Have been having them randomly when out on the weekends and stuff, mostly when hard partying is involved.  Realize it is a slippery slope.  Still doing well overall though.

the one here and there thing means the door is still open...you are going to need to say no forever or its only a matter of time (says the gal who quit for a decade and then started up again within a week of "one here and there" :plain: )

I'm good.  I just seem to suck at festivals still as I smoked quite a bit at Strange Creek.  besides that still no smoking.   I may bring a pack to vibes and Camp as I was the bum monster at Strange Creek.  we shall see.

well festivals are like la la fairytale land where normal rules don't apply.... but I'll say it again...

 

get a logic e-cig with platinum filters. you're getting the same nicotin and there's some umph behind the hit you take. if properly inebriated you won't know the difference.

 

added bonus is when you're in grindy mode, you can bite down on the metal filter without sloppin it up like a real cig.

for me the heat combined with a cheat smoke was really really awful.. I liked the cold air smoke better, and that helped, cause who wants to go outside when it's 4 degrees out?

 

and..... keep it up phanner(s)!!
