So far so good. Still dealing with the urges but OK. I can do cocktails no problem but I think I better stay away from other smokers and drinks at the same time for now.

The biggest change for me was my eating habits. When I smoked, I never ate breakfast and only had a cup or two of coffee. I would eat a humongous lunch and a normal dinner.

Now, I cannot go without some sort of food in the morning.

DON"T WORRY ABOUT GAINING WEIGHT!

It's easier to lose weight than it is to quit smoking. So do what you need to do to quit, then deal with the weight later. I found spicy snacks helped curve any urges because it gave me the same burning sensation as the smoke did. There's like zero calories in hot sauce, just find something good to snack on. My "go-to" snack was orange slices with hot sauce. Tasted like BBQ, but was actually good for me. I made them alot after dinner.

Like I've said before, you first must really want to quit or you never will.

I have been quit for 1 Week, 6 Days, 9 hours, 19 minutes and 8 seconds (13 days). I have saved $66.93 by not smoking 267 cigarettes. I have saved 22 hours and 15 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 1/1/2009 6:08 PM

It says hit ctrl + F12 to put stats into a message, but I can't get that to work. Instead I have to go to edit, then copy stats, then paste stats in here. Ah well, at least I can get it in here LOL.

Doing good I was really irritable Monday and Tuesday I'm guessing it was because of the chemicals from the cigs I think they take the longest to get out of the body. I'm at over two weeks now not smoking.
Honestly I don't how I did it as I thought I would never be able to quit as I loved to smoke. The money I will save is a big bonus as well.
