I only lurk here but I'm out of the woodwork for this one. You can do it!! I joined a site called quitnet.com, some suggestions on there but mostly used it to keep track of how long I've gone. And here it is:

My Stats:
Your Quit Date is: 4/24/2004 12:00:00 PM
Time Smoke-Free: 355 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes and 44 seconds

Cigarettes NOT smoked: 5326
Lifetime Saved: 1 month, 10 days, 16 hours
Money Saved: $931.87

Yes indeedy, I'm 10 days shy of a year. And I will tell you, it gets easier and easier as time goes on. I also went cold turkey, and you will be amazed at the positive changes that will occur.

Good luck to ya!!

Yessssss!!

I think 8 or 10 times a day should be sufficient to ward off the withdrawal symptoms.

Good luck. I have a friend who just gave up smoking for his 28th birthday. He is doing good so far.

Perhaps we should institute some sort of reward system?

Surprisingly, I've cut down over the past few days. ABOY, perhaps?

Surprising, because I've been chained to my computer working 24 hours a day. That's generally prime smoking time. But I see a light at the end of the tunnel. Almost done.

i've already decided that i'm going to do a reward system.

i normally spend about $30 a week on cigs, which equals about $120 a month, so after 3 months i'm going to by a Fender Strat.
do yourself a favor and wait 6 months and buy a nice M.I.A. tele or strat. that mexican stuff is for the birds.

Dunno if you're jokin. If not, (s)he means 'Made In America'....an American Strat as opposed to a Mexican one.

So from a former smoker (over two months quit but still craving) to another, how's it going?
