Started Commit lozenges

I am going to quit this time!! I want to so bad! I have no willpower at all. I always try and start telling myself that I enjoy and that I don't need to quit. DH has been smokeless for over a year now. He quit cold turkey, but, he was also sick at the time too. Wish me luck and pray for me!!

I have to check my counter to be exact, but I quit about 4 months ago. I used the patch. Look for a download called Quit Counter. It calculates how many cigarettes you haven't smoked, how much money you saved and how many days you have added to your life. I'm so glad it's over with.

Spicy food helped the urge, i'm over that now too. I had one on New Years and it hurt my throat so bad I tossed it.

Good Luck to you! I know it's difficult but you can always look to your DH as proof that it can be done! I still smoke but have cut down somewhat. It really is a nasty habit. Good Luck!!!!!!

I didn't even want to quit and I did..... It's been almost 9 years now.
The knitting really helps with the urge to do something with your hands. Not to say you'll never want to again, I almost bought a pack last week. That woulda been dumb.

Committ lozenges!
They did the trick for me! I had to have something oral to replace
the cigarette.
I lozenged for a year after I quit, and still carry mints today.
A mint addiction is much better than a 3 pack a day ciggie
addiction!

Thank you all for the encouragement.
I am really stoked this time to do this. I had 2 this morning to finish a pack, last drag at 8:30am. Took the lozenge at 10, so far so good as to the withdrawals that normally hit by now. Wow, I just realized that it's been 4 1/2 hours. LOL
I downloaded the quit counter and will at home too. I think talking about it and putting it out there how I'm doing will help.

DH has been addicted to Ice Breakers Wintergreen since quitting.
I've been chewing on gum today.
