    Off topic: one more milestone: 30 days smoke free!

    How many of you smoke or have quit recently?

    To me after 17 years of bad habit this is a MAJOR milestone.

    I've just decided that if I make it for another 30 days I'll treat myself with FROG.

    Who else has quit recently?

    Come on folks, I can't be the only one who has left the bad habit...

    I quit just over 3 months ago. Smoked for 15yrs. Got myself Guitar Hero 3 for the Wii as a gift. I wonder how long I can keep milking the quitting for presents to myself before the wife catches on... haha.

    What did you do to quit? I used Chantix, but didn't actually go the full 12 weeks with it. I was really sick a while back and didn't take the meds. Just quit taking them after I felt better. Amazingly I've been really stressed lately and still haven't smoked. Think about it every day, though.

    Cool Re: Off topic: one more milestone: 30 days smoke free!

    I can tell you that it only gets easier as each day goes by. I quit cold turkey on St Patrick's Day, 22 years ago (1 month before the birth of my first child). I believe it was the motivation that gave me the will to quit and never looked back.

    I stopped for a bit, but my wife didn't. Made it bloody hard when hers were lying about, just asking to be smoked.

    Will I try again? I hope so, but I don't feel particularly motivated at the moment. I do smoke far fewer than I used to, though.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I thought there were no smokers here?!?!?

    Kidding aside, smoking IS one of my daily struggles...

    Been trying to ditch the habit for probably a year or so...

    Been with it more or less for the past 14-15 yrs and from close to 2 packs a day, it's now down to an average of 10 sticks.

    Getting there though.


    regards,

    I went cold turkey and let me tell you it was ANYTHING but easy for me...

    Not sure why I quit to be honest... I just figured I'm 35 and well... time to call it quits...

    MAN I HAD A HARD TIME... I still think about it... sometimes I go out but I have to hold myself not to ask for a smoke off anyone. (Here in Canada you can't smoke in any building... we have to go out...)

    The worst is when the break and lunch comes at work even today my hands are looking for a smoke...

    Not easy... hanging in there...

    But yea, I said it! if I make it for 30 more days I'm ordering a frog for 300 as a reward from casio sales and service.

    Will report back how it goes...

    I had a weird love/hate relationship with the cigs......
    I was heavily in sports and DID NOT smoke. I meet my girlfriend (now my fiancee) and she smoked. I made her quit. Then I go in the army and start smoking Long story short, smoked for about 9 years,not a heavy smoker though. Quit cold turkey, almost as a joke, about 2 1/2 years ago, never looked back. My running times are back where they were in my teen years. This fact alone is enough to keep me off from the damn things.
    Great job on quitting, hang in there

    When I was 12 to 18 I used to load my sisters smokes and any other smokes I could find. I got so good at it I would open a brand new pack from the bottom and load every one in the pack. Then carfuly glue it back togther and put it back where I found it. You know the rest.

    The best was when she had a hangover or she lit up where she was not supposed and it went off.

    When I ordered then the catolg said 12 for $X. Well I wanted more than 12 loads so I ordered the next one that said 12 of 12 for $XX. I figared 144 load that is what I wated. What I got was box of 12 sheets that 12 cans on each sheet and 12 loads in each can for a total of 1728.

    Anyway great job quiting and keep it up.

    Congrats to you, Duke, and those who have managed to stop smoking.

    I'm still a smoker, been one since 1987, wish I could stop, although less now at around 10 sticks a day.

    I've told myself that if I stop completely, it would be best for health reasons, most importantly. The money I saved could be put to better use.

    A bloody pack of smokes here in Singapore cost USD$7.73 approx.

    10 packs equal one nice G-Shock, or a nice meal at a restaurant etc.

    And no, the ciggie smokes do not go anywhere near the watch I'm wearing!!
