    Good Luck. Be sure to replace it with something else. When I quit dipping I went thru 2 bags of sunflower seeds a day for about 6 months.

    Good luck Fishwolf!

    You can do it if you really want to....I quit almost 7 years ago when my wife and I decided to have a family.....never wanted my kids to see me smoke.
    Hang in there, once you get past the first few months it gets easy sailing, until you just forget all about that bad habbit.

    On another note, smokes up here in Canada are $9-$10 a pack (so I've heard) so think of all the cool goodies you can reward yourself with by not spending the money on cigs.....

    You can do it!

    I probably quit a hundred times, but that last time I must have been really ready because I just stopped cold turkey and it was the easiest thing I ever did. Took the family almost a week to realize that I'd quit.

    Been over 10 years now.

    :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck:

    Just think of all the EDC stuff you can buy with the money you save, that should help!

    I quit cold turkey for 7 years with the idea in my head to never smoke the first one. It was tough. It took me about a month to break through the withdrawal. In my failed attempts peviously, I would fool myself that I could smoke just one and it would be ok. But I had always started back up, so I vowed to never smoke THAT FIRST ONE and I was off for 7 years.

    But then I figured I could smoke a cigar once a week with the guys and that would be ok. But I started back up again and I smoked for another 10 years.

    Then a bit over 2 years ago, I quit again cold turkey and it was surprisingly easy. No interest in it at all anymore.

    Hang in there Fishwolf.

    I quit about 6-7yrs ago. I used chewing tobacco for 3mos in order to quit. One of the most disgusting 3mos ever, I don't recommend it.
    Good luck! Even after just a few weeks I felt so much better and had more energy and stamina for workouts.

    I smoked for a while when I got out of the military. I quit one night after a gas station clerk tried to charge almost $7 for a pack of smokes. I was surprised that I didnt relapse seeing as how I was averaging a pack a day.

    When I did quit I first cut my smoking down, finally when a pack lastet about 5 days I decided enough was enough and just stopped...

    13 Years ago... relapses? No but once per year I smoke a cigarr and thats it.
