I have tried many, many times to quit. I just love it too damn much. I recently started again after having quit for 11 mths. I was just looking for an excuse I think. Congrats on quitting though.

It is actually a myth that it takes nicotine only 3 days to not be in your system anymore, I have talk to my doctor about this because I was curious about it, it actually takes almost 6 months for it to be out of your blood, but the withdrawl I think calms down after about a week.
Geez for those who are trying to quit think about it... if not for the health, for the money.... ok avarage what is it $9.00 a pack, the avarage smoker smokes 1 pack a day, so thats $63.00 a week $252.00 a month so aprox $3024.00 a year all to give your self cancer or enphzima <--spelling (which my mother passed away from 2 years ago) she smoked 2 packs a day died at 50 yrs old could you imagine leaving your children or loved one at 50 because you wanted a smoke?? Anyways back to the money think of what you could buy for 3 grand ....a pair of albino boa's .... an albino ball python.... a bunch of het pretty much anything.... think of the possibilities a very cool room or enclosure for them all a big screen tv, a home theater system ... sheesh the list is endless. Point is dont pay the Tobbaco companies to KILL you.

Oh boy did you hit it on the head, I have the same problem. I recently quit, and I'm hoping this is the last time because I'm so prone to relapsing. Good luck with it Sunrunner and stay strong!

Congratulations all!

Congratulations to all who have quit!

My last smoke was July 3/03 (day of my kidney transplant), and I haven't touched one since. I smoked since I was 14. I managed to quit cold turkey after more than 10 years.

I was actually speaking of your bodies addiction for nicotine. Your body rids the many toxins at different levels as well, depending on your metobolism, diet, etc etc.

I dont spend very much on tobacco. I buy 'rollies', at about $2.50 for a pouch, and lasts me about 4-7 days. Average pack of 'top shelf' smokes here are from $3.40-5.00. But, for what some folks pay I would rather spend a few bucks more on other smokables...heh. Like my dad always told me, smoke em' if ya got em'... Still, in the end, it is a bit of money that goes into smokes and would not be bad to see some bigger, nicer cages holding bigger and nicer herps!

Congratulations
I've smoked on and off for about 7 years(mostly on). I've quit a few times for a couple months but thats as close as I've got. A few things I've learned through experience are physical activity helped relieve my urges(a boxing bag was most helpful). Another was to avoid drinking which is hard when you live in Thunder Bay and have all alcoholic friends. This thread has motivated me to attempt to quit for the 617th time.
I think it would be great if everyone shared the method(s) they used to quit.

1 day, 1 week, 1 month,1 year were all difficult for me, still are, I still crave cigs so badly. It's just somthing you do. There are so many "stop smoking" things out on the market you can try them all if you need to.
