The first two weeks were the hardest. I started smoking when I was 14 and just quite one day cold turkey when i 37 and haven't smoked since. I was a two pack a day smoker. You have to want to quite. that has been five years ago and it feels awesome.

Good Luck!
It took a pulmonary embolism and a week in the hospital for me to quit permanently, but I did quit once before that for two years. My best advice is to figure out a new way to deal with stress and break all your old habits like smoking after a meal, smoke breaks with friends, etc.
Think about all the money you will save and no more stinky clothes! Oh and also no longer feeling like a heroin addict and worrying if you have enough cigs with you.

Congrats Jay, I tried Chantix a few years ago and it worked for me. Unfortunately I started again about a year later, I just quit again and went cold this time. Been holding strong for 3 weeks now hopefully I can keep it up.

I read on the internet that a nicotine craving only truly lasts 3 minutes at a time, so everytime I have one I try to focus on somethign else for the 3 minutes, suprisingly it has worked everytime. It has been getting easier everyday...Good luck you can do it.

Hang in there dude. I used Chantix one time to quit dipping. That lasted a few years with success until I was making a big hunting trip with a bunch of friends who all dipped....I decided I would get some for our big weekend of hunting......wrong!!

A few years after that I just decided that I wasn't going to let a little can of tobacco run my life. Threw it out the window driving down the road (yes, I'm guilty of littering), and have never looked back. That's been 8 years or so.....

You can do it dude.

Hey guys, I'm on the wagon Tryin to knock the can.. I haven't had a dip since dec 21 so I'm at a month and a few days. I see a lot of y'all have quit dippin so I was thinking y'all might have experienced this, but I have been sick pretty much since I have quit, coughing, sinus infection and stuff. Wondering if its flu season junk or if anyone else had this kind of stuff. I'm usually a pretty healthy guy might get a cold or sinus infection once a year, but never like this.

I'm going to try and give them up for Lent. If I don't have a reason to, I'm not gonna quit. Good luck.

I'm no MD but I think you just caught a cold/crud/flu.

I never had any symptoms like this when I quit.

Awesome, don't tell anyone but I started not eating And drinking ANYThING that came from animals on a daily basis, saving it for the weekends and running and dropped 28 lbs like a bad habit in about 6 weeks... And feel frickin awesome. The comfort and confidence are awesome.

Call me a wuss for not eating steak and stuff all day every day, but in telling you the salt reduction alone will make you feel great, much less the amount of calories you save...

The protein hype is Bs, no deficiency at all. Protein is everywhere, just gotta fid it.

Now I just gotta kick the smokes!

Oh, and don't forget for every 20-30lbs you lose, you gain an inch back somewhere else!

Never tried to quit cold turkey and this was really my first time trying. Something told me I needed to stop, so i went to the doc, got Chantix, and one month later, smoke free. Not sure I can do that diet that Gooh is talkin about though.

Lol, diets are temporary. It's gotta be an eating change and the way you look at food. What I'm doin is a little extreme, but it works for me.

Calories in and calories out, that's all there is to it. 3,500 calories are in 1 lb of fat, so you gotta create a deficit every week - either by cutting calories, or burning calories, or both..

I started counting my calories three weeks ago and was amazed how many calories I was consuming in a day. I lost 10 lbs and have a long way to go but I'm sticking to it.

It's unreal, especially when you count on a day when you are putting down beers and eating all the fried stuff. No reason to be putting away the same amount of calories as a SEAL in training!! Not sure how I wasn't weighing 500 lbs.

Thank God I don't drink. I am fat enough just from eating. Lol
