I quit way back in '96. I smoked maybe a pack and a half a day. I chewed Nicorette forever, but eventually kicked it. I still have dreams every now and then that I'm smoking and I get so mad at myself haha. For some reason I never had heartburn until after I quit. I think that was coincidence though, or from whatever weight I gained as a result of quitting.
Although your health should be the number one motivation for quitting, I don't see how people can afford to do it anymore. When I think of how much I smoked, and what it would cost me today I'm .

Today is my 4 month anniversary of when i quit smoking cigarettes. Dont ask me why I know the day haha. Since i quit i have been able to walk and even run and do cardio without running out of breathe within the first 10 seconds. I can also breathe better in general. I get heartburn less and my breathe doesnt smell like cigarettes anymore :)
Anybody else quit smoking? How long has it been? Quitting is a great thing and I congradulate others who have done the same, its hard but sooo worth it.
Also is there anyone who currently smokes cigarettes? How does it effect your workout? How do you feel overall?
