Default Quit cigarettes two weeks ago

Still going strong. Man that shit has a stronghold on my mind. Kudos to anyone who has quit before. It's not easy

some people smoke their cigarette so close to the filter that the plastic actually starts to melt. tobacco isnt the worst, but inhaling plastic is awful for you.

i switched to smoking tobacco out of a pipe and i think i actually smoke more tobacco now. dont try it as an alternative, cold-turkey is the only option. my e-cig makes me feel like i have pneunomia after a few hours of use.

Keep at it. The physical addiction will go away but the mental one will stay forever. For me it was about keeping the streak going. It's been over a year and I'd be furious with myself if I gave in, even though I still think about it every day.

I tried supplementing before too. Doesn't work.

Been maybe a year for me. I never think about it any more. I rolled my own for the last fifteen years I smoked, so at least I wasn't constantly ingesting the chemical cocktail that goes into manufactured cigarettes. I think that probably made it easier.

Honestly, quitting drinking was harder -- largely because I was so physically addicted that the act of detoxifying nearly killed me. Going vegan was more difficult, too, because our culture celebrates the consumption of animals to an obsessive extent. Cigarettes? Really just a simple matter of self control.

But yeah, when quitting anything, cold turkey is the only way. Except if you're going vegan, I guess. Turkey is meat.

Best of luck.

I stopped drinking caffeine for about a year now, and it was rough. Headaches, irritability, lethargy. It only lasted a few weeks though, it will get better.

Ride on my rescue for a few shifts and you'll never want to smoke another cig again. COPD is terrifying.

I quit almost 8 months ago and it was tough (I was either yelling or crying or BOTH for the first 3 weeks or so), but it's been fanfuckingtastic since then.

I really like not having to worry about things like "Do I have enough cigarettes for today/tonight/this weekend?", "When can I get my next smoke break in?", and "How far is the closest discount tobacco store?" I had no idea how much time I spent worrying about cigarettes.

Keep it up. You'll be so glad to be free!

TOTALLY been thinking about not drinking coffee anymore. I've been doing it for years now and in the last year it's definitely got worse. 2 toddlers + wife + work = MORE COFFEE!

I really should just stop, but I just ordered another box of San Fransico Bay Rainforest Blend from Amazon......so, maybe after this batch. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

I feel you, I aso have 2 small kids, and my wife still drinks coffee.

Hardest part is in the morning at the station, everyone sitting around bullshitting and drinking coffee. That's where decaff K cups come in handy [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

So....I don't mind decaff. But I've noticed the 'stains' on my teeth just starting to appear. Ahhhh vanity.

Anyway, if I am going to stop, I'll just stop. I love fruit, maybe I can just munch on some apples or whatever.

But ya....at work EVERYONE drinks coffee around me and my wife does drink as well, but not even close to what I consume. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

And, I am a +1 dad because I let my kids sip my coffee. My daughter loves it and would drink my whole cup, my son not so much.
