I am currently on my third day without smoking any cigaretts. Suprised that I have not wigged out yet. That is all...

For a lot of people, The first 3-4 days are the worst. For others, quitting isn't so bad. For some, every day is a nightmare...missing it constantly.

For me, I don't think about it most days at ALL, except when something really bad happens at work, pretty rare occasion... When that happens, I MIGHT partake of 1 smoke.

Glad it hasn't been so bad for you. Hope you never smoke again.

You seem to me to be the kind of person to make it.

Whenever you feel like you want a cigarette, just tell yourself, "I can't. I don't smoke."
It works every hour of every day for me......

Good going, your doing great. Light one up you lose, that's been my method for the last 4 years. Smoked for almost 40 years and still have cravings. I'm still winning.

Yes, winning is so much better. I am currently using the e-cig that I bought a year ago. I need my crutch.

I too feel that having one is like blowing it all to hell. So, cold turkey on the flame sticks.

The reason for me telling the forum, is for moral support. If I smoke, I will let you know, and expect to be ridiculed for it.

I have smoked consistantly since about 21. The past 17 years. There have been some breaks, but nothing to write home about. I feel that this one will stick. Just so many reasons to quit.

After a few hours I am ready to tear someone’s head off. Good luck to you. The longest I have ever gone without a cigarette was 3 months after my bypass surgery. Then I had one while I was changing the trany on the caravan at a friends who smoked.

I missed smoking the most when I am welding and waiting for things to cool down. It was kind of my timing tool. Or when I was on a long road trip, I would almost chain smoke.

As I sit here smoking another cigarette.

Again good luck, and don’t kill anyone.

Good luck, Tony.
What I found was that the urge to smoke comes at intervals, like waves. Whether you smoke, or whether you don't, the urge will go away.
The longer you go without smoking, the fewer and less intense the urges become. (I've been quit since November of '88 and I still feel the urge, sometimes.)

Be careful. It's easy to substitute one bad habit for another, just looking for "something to do". I found that I drank way too much for a while, until I recognized what was going on.

I had a G/F that said that I just needed something else to do with my hands and something else to stick in my mouth. She was a great help in that regard.

Edit - I did tell my Rice Krispies to STFU a few times.

You guys kill me. Today has been tough, but I am steadfast. I spent the day out in my garage working on Fiero projects, and more than once reached for a cigarette. I actually reached, but there were none there. Just weird.

Thanks for the support also. It will be needed.

Good for you, Tony.

I quit smoking over 6 years ago, and never looked back. Nowadays, people look at me and say "I can't picture you as a smoker". Neither can I.

Anyway, best of luck. Lots of people have freed themselves from that nasty habit. You can, too.
