Good luck to everyone trying!
Luckily, I have a good motivator not to begin in the first place: My stepdads cough, who has been smoking since he was 14 (he's 53).

I hope you can pull it off, smoking is one of the worser habits a man can have.

Good luck !
I'm on the same situation. Smoked for 20 years I quit smoking July 23rd no patches no nothing. Now that I feel much better my mind plays me tricks like I could smoke again because of the way I feel.
Money is not an issue when you are a smoker the real problem is how to wash 20 years of habit out of your brain.
It looks like I gave up smoking yesterday I guess our bodies will remember the feeling forever.
Be strong !

Im a smoker myself. Would love to quit, but very difficult...

You got my full support man!!

Gum helps somewhat, and I noticed if I stuff myself to full with food I don't want a cigarette. Maybe you can try that...

Congrats Kapto, stay the course man, 2 months in is great! smile.gif I agree that 20 years of a bad habit is going to be hell to break but the way I see it, 21 years will be even worse. The time for me is now! cool.gif

I wish you the best of luck. i am 34 and i have been smoking since i was twelve and ever since my son was born six years ago i have tried to give up every year but in the end just started smoking more. now i really am statring to get guilt trips from the kids and smoking in the UK costs a fortune (about £6 for 20).

add to this the fact that my mother died back in may at the age of 59 of a massive heart attack that was directly related to her being a heavy smoker. ironically she gave up the year before.

so i will be posting my own giving up thread, but as always i keep finding some excuse to put off giving up.

stay strong, and let me know how those seeds work.

Thanks Dusty, your story is very similar to mine. I started when I was 16 (now 36) and have kids as well. Your time will come man and when you want to quit bad enough, you will. That's where I'm at now. It took me really, really wanting to quit to take the leap. smile.gif

On the wagon as of yesterday, around noon. Patches & chewing gum at the ready, awaiting psychotic episodes.

Well, it's been a month already and I'm still smoke free. smile.gif Can't say that I have been the most pleasurable person to be around but hey, still smoke free! laugh.gif

Cravings have pretty much gone but there's still that urge every now and again, guess that will pass with time too. I encourage any of you who wants to quit to just go for it, you only have the rest of your life to consider. wink.gif
