Well the worst of it should be over for most you guys. Hang in there.

I am still trucking along.

Urges will probably always remain, but have become controllable now. Cut my dipping back to a couple a day now.

Wind is better.

BUT

I gained like 20 plus pounds.

Need to get on the treadmill more, and stop the bullshit.

(sigh....)

You are an idiot if you quit smoking. I was born with my right foot facing east. Extra ribs...extra vertebrae...

Pops was 3rd Marines in Vietnam and sprayed in the jungle by the US Air Force with Agent Orange. Lost his hair in his 20’s.

Both kids born mutants. They had to break my leg when I was 4 and turn it straight so I look normal. One leg longer than the other. Supposed to wear shoe inserts.

I never did...made it quite a ways in DoD before the spine gave out.

Sister was born with heart murmer and crooked spine.

Both faakd...Still kickin.

Those cigarettes are much safer than your India component mixed meds...currently VA and DoD getting drugs from China.


At this point...chewing on your dogs turds is probably the safest habit.

PLEASE dont wait a year. If it was your primary dr who said to wait ;get a copy of the disc and see a pulmonologist. You are young so its less likely to be anything serious. It is a common finding and could have been overread. But, be on the safe side and get 2nd opinion. I quit cold turkey. It is easier than you think. I just kept imagining my kids by my bedside crying and angry that i smoked. If u have any ? pm me

All I know is I am still going strong.

Only an occasional desire for a smoke, but wow......smokers stink. Everyone I know, that still smokes, smells rough with stale smoke.

Never thought I would say that, but yeah....smoking stinks.

Meanwhile still using "dip", can about every three days - and honestly I dont even feel like I need it now.

Never thought I could reach this point.

Looks good. Any falling down is your own fault now. Should be able to beat it from here on out.

I quit "cold Turkey" a two packs a day ( Marlboro ) habit back on September, 1995.

Haven't picked up a cigarette since.


I hated having that vice, that "pang" telling me what to do: " Light up, light up.. you know you want to"

Fuck that shit.

I got mad at the habit, mad at myself for giving in to the weakness; and decided to fight it.

And that was it. 24 years ago.


Never Give Up, Never Surrender.

YOU are Stronger than the drug.

Still NOT smoking....

The urges have really subsided now, been near 6 months. I have come too far to turn back.

I dropped alcohol, caffeine and nicotine cold turkey all at once when I got my DD214. Just do it. Rip the band aid off and be done with it. It has been almost 4 years now.

Good for you.

Be aware that it's going to get tough in the next day or three, as your body runs low on the nicotine stored in your tissues and your brain screams for the "fix"...

DO NOT GIVE IN.

YOU GOT THIS.

Oh, this ain't my first rodeo. My real struggle starts 1-3 months in when I find myself thinking "I can have ONE in this social situation." A lot of friends smoke and I work part time at a night club, so it's ALWAYS around.

Yep, don't miss the cigs anymore (former 3 pack a day Kool's). Can't even imagine the damage I done to my lungs. Stopped alcohol maybe 6 years ago. Wife put her foot down after I downed a fifth of Old Viejo Tequila and then tried to drive off in my neighbors truck thinking it was mine - wondered why the key wouldn't work for over half an hour. Still, the only thing I miss is maybe once or twice a month a nice ice cold mug of amber on a hot summer afternoon. But it too passes.

"Should" is the operative word. Haven't had any crisis moments as of yet.

Just pluggin' along, doing my best.

Yall are stronger than me. Smoking 2 packs a day and at the bar every weekend.

Addiction runs in the family and I guess it didnt skip my generation. My grandpa quit when my mom was born; maybe I need something like that to get me to quit.

Oh well. Congrats to those who have quit.

It is not easy but very rewarding to quit.
I still remember it started January 1, 1985.
I recall looking around for old butts or in the car ash tray.
Once in a while when I had a beer with a old friend I would bum one from him.
Eventually I stopped all together.

That every 20 minute nicotine urge takes time to subside.

I changed my eating and exercise habits too.

Working out , running etc
, helped a lot for me..

I've been going back and forth. I'll go about a week just vaping, then something will piss me off and I'll buy a pack. It takes about 3 days to finish a pack and I'll be disgusted with myself and go another week or so without any.

It's been like this for the last couple months. On the bright side I used to smoke at least a pack a day of the strongest cigarettes available. I'd say overall my tobacco use is about 5% of what it used to be.... I know that's not quitting, but I've been able to cut way WAY back.

I only have the urge to smoke them when I get pissed off and into "fuck you" mode. Any other time, I do ok.
