My bad fellows, I need to work on that temper. All I can say in my defense is that being nicotine free isn't the utopia I imagined when I quit three weeks ago. And that's not much of a defense. My apologies to all.

If everything was perfect it might well argue against living.

I quit in October. It's not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. As a matter of fact, I am in a better mood. I was up to nearly 3 packs/day. I used the patch(BIG help) for two weeks and then it also became a bother so I got off that as well. Everyone at work smokes and it doesn't bother me.

I really didn't want to quit as it went with everything I like to do and I really enjoyed the damn things. But damn the money saved!

It's actually going pretty well for me, looking at my calender it's more like six weeks. Started with Chanitx but had to give that up quickly and go cold turkey. Most days I have no problems, but notice that my temper seems to flare badly sometimes. It's like I get aggravated and want to light up, then when I don't it's straight to stupid city.

And the wife wonders why I don't like to drive much these days......

Congrats to all of you who are succeeding. I marvel at your power over such a problematic habit, especially in the face of social acceptance.

I was lucky years ago to discover one day that I'd forgotten to get out the next pack a couple weeks before and not noticed.

Rare is the person so fortunate.

If only it were so easy with sugar!

I'm guessing that this thread did not originally have anything to do with quitting smoking. I was eating dinner and there's no room for the computer and my tray in the cart so ... What did I MISS?!

Was it the "So'n'so threatened me" thread? I saw the title but dinner came and I didn't have a chance to open it before one of my darlin's switched out the computer for the tray.

Let's just say that while I thought I was safely past middle age there are apparently still some adolescent tendencies I need to work on.

I quit 3 years ago cold turkey. It was very hard to be around me at the time I'm sure.

Keep it up, it'll be worth it in the end!

Fortunately in my day they did not have DNA testing to determine who on that wee bus was licking the windows either.

Between my wife and I we were smoking 4 packs a day. Today that would have equated to $30/day, $900/month, and $11,000/year!!!!!!!! For us it was a pleasure to smoke but it was for our health that we quite.

Good luck to you as well.

I remember in the early fifties........and my dad was an oil field truck driver with a third grade education...so he literally learned to read and write etc on his own......was smoking 3+ packs a day....he would light one cigarette with the stubb of the last one....Camels......
He always had a 4-8 year old car....and he made the remark one day when I was riding in his truck with him, how just once in his life he would like to drive a fairly new car..and not an old rattletrap...
I asked him how much a new car would cost, and he told me about $100 a month but he only made at that time, about $80 a week and a little more because he saved his expense money......I asked him how many packs of cigs that he smoke...and it was 3-4 a day. I knew that they were about 35-40 cents a pack at the time.....so I said that if he quite smoking that was about a $1.50 a day or $45 a month so he was half way there.
Later in the evening he was talking with mom in the dining room...and I saw him pull the cigarettes out of his pocket and crush the pack......he quite cold turkey. Six months later he and mom bought the new car.....the brand new, just advertised 1956 Chevy Bel Air V8.

I will be happy with a home built camp cruiser/ slow moving raid boat next spring from my savings, which at 150+ per month should happen.

We always had a guy around who was always talking about their willingness to scrap. They usually ended up with a nickname like "Lumpy".
