    Congrats to anyone that quits

    On the first day, I cut out smoking.

    On the next day, I cut out drinking.

    On the next day, I cut out loose women.

    On the next day, I cut out paper dolls.

    Seriously folks, congratulations to anyone that gives up smoking. The fact that you will be around longer to enjoy family and friends is your reward.

    (quit smoking, cold turkey, 15 years ago after 37 years).

    Its never to late, just do it.

                    I've been inspired. Just got the gum. Now I need to make the plan and get set. This is try #3 for me. First try was on the patch...then I managed to be at a bar during a presidential election. BAAAAAAAAAD combo. Second time I quit...I was federal sector security specialist. The date was 9/11/01. The whole group of us quitters met at the smoking area at the same time. It was a bad bad day.

                    Let's hope third time's a charm. Any NSA guys around here...keep an ear to the ground and smush 'em before they can do anything. That'd make it much easier to stay quit this time!!!
                    I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                      I always tell myself I need to quit, mainly for the money reasons. Ive even gotten myself to cut down to 3-4 smokes a day, but I couldnt get myself to really quit. I tried Zyban years ago, and (long story short) with Zyban you smoke and take the anti depressant for 2 weeks while the drug builds up in your system. That part worked great for me, I was nice to everyone. Then the morning of my quit day I woke up with a HORRIBLE rash all over, and as I itched it got worse, then I read the side effects, and I was having them. Over the next month I could barely work an 8 hour day without feeling like I had arthritis in EVERY joint in my body. I made several more trips to the Drs office, but being frustrated and not being able to keep up the Zyban I went back to smoking.

                      I tried again with the patch, and that was awesome. It gave me some crazy weird dreams at night, but I didnt keep up with it. I only bought a few from a friend who had good luck with it.

                      I find that if I dont let my mind think Im quitting I can cut back. When I try I just put off the next one a little longer. Once the tax refund kicks in I will probably give the patch a more serious effort, that and I will keep one smoke and a lighter around, so my mind doesnt make me crazy about quitting

                        It's good to see so many quitters amongst us. To me quitting was easy. I had lots of experience. Tried it 7 times before it finally stuck. I think what finally convinced me it might be a good idea was watching my father die of lung cancer. I can tell you that the urge will finally go away, but it took years in my case.

                        Hang in there all you quitters.

                          As of last week I quit chain-buying tools and took up smoking - think of the money I'll be saving!!!


                          But seriously, I quit cold turkey in '92...

                            Smoked for 12 yrs. Quit 5 November 1999. Woke up one morning with 2 left in my pack and said I'm done. That pack stayed on my coffee table for a month before I gutted up enough courage to toss it out. Thinking about that night I finally got the courage to throw it out still brings tears-of-fear to my eyes. But, never looked back and don't crave the stinky things at all. Is it me or is it just irritating to have someone smoking next to you after being a reformed smoker? Best thing I ever did.
                            No, the half of the missing finger was not power tool related.

                              On July 10th, 2003 I was on my back patio having a cigarette before watching one of my favorite TV shows. Went into the house sat down turned the TV on and had a heart attack. Three stents later I came home. I am lucky to be here. Haven't had a smoke since that night.

                              To all of you that have quit.........congratulations
                              To the ones that are trying to................ hang in there, each day will be a little easier.
