Oh Yeah

I just quit dipping on Monday. I am chewing the gum though. I smoked for 6 years and IMO quitting smoking is way harder than quiting dipping.

Thanks, I was looking for that.

BTW, I read Allen Carr's(RIP) book. I think it contains some sort of subliminal hypnosis, because it's only been 4 or 5 days and I don't even want a cigarette and I haven't been going over his book in my head or anything.

I quit once back in college, for about 3 months, and return to the call of nicotine.

After that, I've tried at least 4 times, cold turkey, and found that my system doesn't cope well without nicotine. I had to consult my family MD, and he had a prescription for me. I have a very good feeling this time. I've learned that the first 5 days are the most challenging time when I have to cope with withdrawal. It would be just ignoring the habit from now on....

Talk to your doctor if you have hard time quitting....

Good to see people kicking the habit. =) Smoking is definitely an expensive habit. Now you can use the money for headphones!

The money and smell would never be enough to stop me. It's the health risk that keeps me away.

Good for you! hope it gest easier and you can kick the habit completely. It has been 24 years, 10 months, and 17 days since I quit!

All these quitting threads have really turned me away from smoking. I came close to starting so many times already that I lost count. Still, I always somehow escape just in time before getting addicted. Guess I got lucky

Good luck to all of you. Smoking may be satisfying but it's in no way worth it

It's been 2+ months for me...although I am smoking cigars. I smoke around 3 cigars a week, it actually is something to look forward to and since I am not inhailing my lungs are coming along quite well (I can take a deep breath now without coughing). I remember a quote from a Tetley teabag (remember those?) that said "the definition of willpower is to not tell anyone you quite smoking". That is quite profound I will say. To all keep up the good work, you really have to want it to make it work.
