Update On Quitting Smoking

Recommended Posts

He everyone last Friday (September 1) made two years since I quit cigarettes :thumbsup:

Feel so much better even though at first I gained 10#, losing it slowly. More energy, so it was worth the effort

:thumbsup: It can be done :thumbsup:

Congratulations Robroy! :thumbsup:

Yes it can be done, if you really want to bad enough.

It is not easy, but can be done, Stay with it.

I also did it 8 yrs ago, and feel better. Gained weight like you

said, still trying to get all of it off. It is a little harder when you are

older. Maintaining right now.

Isn't it nice now not to have to grap your cigs before you do

the car keys, :lol:

Congratulations, my friend!! :thumbsup:

Stick with it, robroy:-) I also was a smoker as a kid in my teens and early twenties. I quit 24 years ago. I still like the smell of people smoking though, I guess you never get rid of the craving.

that's great man, your lungs should be close to healed and working at full capacity soon. My manager at work dropeed both smoking and drinking in within 6 months. He spearheaded smoking. First he dropped it all together but was dipping to get the nicotine then dropped it a week later. He was sick for a few days so we were kinda flyin' by ourselves there for a few days.

Keep it up and don't start again. rock on pal. :thumbsup:

thanks everyone

It must have been time to quit because although I did it cold turkey after the first week I really didn't have bad cravings. The worst time was driving, yep Barb grabbing the cigs before the car keys, so I did absolute minimal driving for the first two weeks. 40 years worth of smoking is gonna take a while toget it allout of the system. I have started doing forms again after 25 years. Still remember the moves. and surprised a friend when I showed him the sole of my shoe 6" in font of his face. He had bet that I couldn't still do that. Nice steak dinner coming up for that one hehe. Well time for some more workout before sleepy time

Workout? Quit smoking? HUH?

I'm gonna inhale here and exhale in heaven.

Exercize? Naww... Whenever I feel like that I lay down until the feeling goes away.

Good job roboy! It takes a hell of a lot to quit a best friend like cigs.

Vaping causes more damage than smoking & it will be banned soon !

Well done! You did such a great job, so I can't help asking how did you manage to do it?  Personally, I tried vaping and I bought a really good liquid from mtbakervapor.com but it didn't help me to stop smoking and I want to ask if I did something wrong because I am sick and tired of this union with cigarets.
