Just make it through the first 3 days. That's all you have to do! It won't be horrible forever. The first month will still be hard at times... when things happen that trigger your desire for a cig. But soon enough, you will be glad you stopped. You will feel much better and wonder why you ever did it in the first place. My advice is to just stick with it! Good luck! Don't feel bad if you don't make it on the first time though, it took me a few times to quit.

Excellent Blue. Don't forget to check in if you need a poke in the eye when you reach for a weed. I promise to tell really bad jokes designed to make you too nauseous to smoke.

Blue..........I wish you the best of luck during this process. I totally understand first hand (my mom) how difficult it is!!!!!! I commend you for wanting to give it up...that's a critical piece to the puzzle.

My mom started smoking when she was 13 years old. She quit when she was 75. Four years later she was diagnosed with lung cancer and died a year later. Her quitting smoking when she did really helped her during the last year of her life. Her quality of life was better.

She really felt that quitting cold turkey was the best way, and that's what she did. It was really tough at first, but she just bit the bullet. It got easier each week after that.

Just don't give up...if you have a set back, just try again. Don't beat yourself up about it!!!

I'll be sending positive vibes your way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe rent "Trainspotting"? Take a few days off from work and just really do the whole withdrawal thing? It will suck, but it will be over.

Ah it takes longer then 3 days... I found the first two weeks to be the hard part... with the occasional cravings now only when I'm drinking.

I decided I wanted to be a better skijorer so I quit cold turkey, started roller blading and making sure I got my vitamins to clean the crap out of my system.

Try and find yourself a woman who will leave you or lock down the fun house if you smoke again... that is real incentive to quit there. Because as good as that cigarette feels there are some things that are just better

Today went pretty well. I did have some random puff that might add up to 1.5 cigs. 1st one at 10:27am, Im happy I made it that long.
