    Hell yea good luck to you. I made the transformation almost 2 months ago (way to expensive even the dollar packs are a bundle) and hey non smoking is good for your heath right? I wouldnt have quit if it wasnt expensive but you know how it is.

    I know how it is. I still get the urge, and probably will never get over those. But I just cant find it in my wallet to EDC smokes anymore! :broke:

    It stops getting hard after the first week-week and a half, but the urge from the pure pleasure it causes doesnt go away. I smoked menthols so really harsh peppermint like altoids have helped me

    For anyone lese trying to quit my friend just quit using CHANTIX. He loved to smoke and tried everything to quit from gum to patches to hypnosis. Nothing worked. He started on the medication, picked up a smoke, and had absolutely no desire to light it. I think it's amazing because he was a hard core smoker and loved it. He only wanted to quit for his kids. I know it is not for everyone, but worth a look if you are having trouble.

    :iagree: I've recommended Chantix to a number of friends. It doesn't work for everyone, some people get nauseous quite badly. But it can really help.

    I tried Fishermans friends. Now I can eat them anymore, but I quit smoking now 16 years.

    And you can do it!
