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.
