I quit smoking 3 months ago tomorrow - with the exception of a few alcohol induced slips ups that didn't carry on to morning. Good luck!

quitting smoking is a great thing to do for yourself! I spent the money I saved on an exercise bike and cable tv so I could have a new life where I never left home and was never tempted to smoke cigarettes. It's been 7 years now.

my vanity is pretty much the only thing that finally forced me to quit smoking. i started noticing little lines i didn't have before. yeah i'm getting older, but i know cigarettes don't help. that went on for a coupe years but my urge to smoke always won.

so i started buying more expensive face wash and lotions and creams to counter the smoking. so there i am wasting even more money. i dunno. i just felt like quitting and i hope it sticks.

Mooney 02-15-2012 08:04 PM

good. so the one i borrowed and smoked on the 11th doesn't count.

Travis Meeks 02-15-2012 08:18 PM

Nope

And I think I smoked it after the game to reward myself for not smoking during the super bowl. Stupid alcohol.

Travis Meeks 02-15-2012 08:22 PM

2 months! who's still on the no smoking train?

MusicMan4 03-01-2012 05:44 PM

i've been smoking regularly for three weeks

i had quit for five years. i've mentioned a lot that after i quit cold turkey i had no problem going out drinking 1-3 times a year and smoking a pack and dropping it again just like that

for some reason my ADD meds make me crave them intensely. I'm hoping that eventually goes away, because I really don't want to be a regular smoker. I loved being able to pick it up for a weekend and stop. It's frustrating because it was so easy. I never had cravings after I stopped. None at all.

oh well.
I can either keep smoking or go off the one daily medication I finally found that keeps me from staring at my shoes all day and not talking to anyone at work. I'm gonna stick with the Vyvanse and hope I can get back to my old occasional habit.

SuckSuckStyle 03-01-2012 06:09 PM

4 weeks :cool:

yeah, stimulants do that. you are getting a bigger release of dopamine when you smoke than usual because of the vyvanse (this isnt exactly correct but in basic terms this is what is happening). same idea as tweakers who beat off for hours on meth

i agree keep smoking for now. that is definitely a lesser concern

Travis Meeks 03-01-2012 08:27 PM

31 days clean here. Way to go fellas

good job everyone

Mooney 03-01-2012 08:48 PM

way to go, team!

two months and not even a drunken cigarette. mind you i've been still pumping an ungodly amount of nicotine into my system with my fake cigarette. not too concerned about that, though.

Duke1497 03-01-2012 09:44 PM

Great job to everyone so far!!!

Good luck on your journeys ahead

Also excited to announce that my brother has started to quit smoking :D

Shallowed 03-02-2012 02:45 AM

So what have you guys noticed that is different, aside from money saved?
Do you feel like you've quit long enough that you don't even think about smoking?
