My hubby tried evrything except chantix. He was thinking about it then quit cold turkey again
Was smooke free for a couple of months but everytime we go out and someone is smoking he lights a cigarette just for that night.
Recently he started smoking again,reason:stressful remodel
Doubt that He said he will quit after remodel is done.I guess there are always excuses
He used to smoke 1-2 packs a day
Now maybe 3-5 a day
i did it 17 years a go cold turkey and have not had one to this day
if you need a reason to quit or have an excuse to keep smoking you do not or want to quit .
just do it

it has been one year and 21 days and no i do not miss it
9/11/01, never forget.
Hmmmmm, that was pretty nasty stuff, the guy is right, only 1 hit, and that much brown, scary to think 1-2 packs a day, for oh, 18 years
Chantix, heard about that.....I gotta quit again for the last time!
I use to joke "quitting was easy as I do it all of the time". I once quit for 14-months than had one cigarette during a stressful day at Joni Mitchell's Bel Aire home and bought a pack of my own on the way home.
I can tell you I quit cold turkey on 9/1/87 and it took many years after the physical part was over to be done with the mental part. However, the fact that I can remember the date tells me it was an important day in my life.
I hope you can find an easy way to quit smoking. However, I can tell you you cannot quit for anyone else it has to be for yourself.

Yep, that's where the brown goes... it just stays there, building up in your lungs.
Then when you get older, you just start to cough, as your body tries to get rid of it. But it can't!
Then you begin to loose your breath. The coughing gets a bit worse and you tire a lot.
Eventually you find that all that brown has turned to black. You find that out, because you start spitting up this black crud.
The coughing doesn't stop, and now it brings up the black.
Breathing is really hard and you wish you could just stay on that oxygen bottle that goes everywhere with you... but you can't. All too often you have to take the mask away to wipe the black stuff out of your mouth when you cough! Each time you do, it's like painfully holding your breath, you can't wait for the oxygen so you can breath again.
The medicine helps with the pain in your chest and your back, but the breathing becomes a major effort, even with the oxygen. Sometimes the pain comes in such a rush that it takes your breath... well, what little you have.
Eventually, you just suffocate, gasping and choking on the black stuff, that used to be brown stuff, that used to be your cigarette habit, that used to be just a part of living.
I watched my Dad go through this. A lot of smokers get cancer and suffer through whatever form of pain that brings. Others, like my Dad just slowly suffocate!
When I was kid, smoking was considered "cool". My Dad always told me that when I became man enough to buy my own, well then I could smoke. I've always had a wierd sense of vision. To my younger mind, smoking was a lot like burning the weekly trash and standing downwind and sucking the smoke into your body. Didn't seem to be too smart!
Sure wish that I could have convinced my Dad to give it up!
