4 months and 23 days!

I am feeling fan-****ingtastic!!!! I only OCCASIONALLY get an urge. Its one of those "ah I Remember when it was like to smoke one" and then I continue to think about what it would be like to smoke one--- thankfully I haven't yet!!--NOR DO I PLAN TO!!!

I can say this, I never used to drink alcohol and since I've quit smoking I've developed a taste for it. I'm not an alchy but I do enjoy getting a little buzz in order to help take the edge off of life.

I never thought I'd make it through those horrible urges, the physical urge to smoke.

All I can say to new comers is just don't give up, ever. Keep pushing yourself, when you get to 2 days say to yourself "I've already done 48 hours, no sense in pissing away that time in agony, might as well push it further". Keep pushing it till the urge is gone, it does go away I promise!

Though the urges go away you will always have a warm place in your heart for cigarettes--- that is--- only when you're not around them.

When I smell cigarettes--- UGGGGHHH NASTY I hate the smell of cigarettes, cigars and all that crap. When a truck drives by with the smog I choke and cough. All smoke smells so shitty to me now. Although I still breathe lots of marijuana smoke.

I quit cold turkey from 20+ cigarettes a day. I used to smoke at my computer, after every meal, while smoking weed, drinking, driving, sitting around, I smoked with everything-- and it was a pivitol part of everything I did.-- beleive it or not I practically had to re-learn how to do everything.

Sometimes when I See people dodging out of work for a cigarette I get a bit jealous and think 'ow maybe i should run out and smoke one with them just for the F of it'-- then I remember what its like to feel crap in my lungs working its way up or cough up a nasty black ball of shlt.

All I can stress is that if you smoke, you quit---asap. No sense in pissing away awesome years of life to breathe smoke!!!

Good for you Steve, keep strong on the quit man. I'm in the same time area as you( 4 months and 19 days ) and things are going well for me as well. Smokers dont really bother me though and I do enjoy the smell of smoke, I dont pine away at the smell I just like it. Its been very cold and and seeing people at work runnin out for a smoke in 20 degree weather baffles me LOL. Even when I smoked I'd wait till I got home hehehe.:p


Well done.

Its funny you mention the alcohol. For me nothing has changed taste wise except lager. Its really 'beery' and I am finding it hard to drink - bummer its the only thing I like.

you are month a head of me in your quit so maybe I will persevere and hope my liking will return lol
