    im trying to quit to. After 9 years. im on day number 4, its such a short amount of time but that fact that i even lasted a day made me so proud of myself. - by TIKJAT12
  • I too am working on quiting. I can comfortably only have 5 ciggs a day...but when i used to do dishes, laundry and feel it was time for a smoke break..i would tell myself "well ill vacum and do this other task before" then i find myself stretching it till a few more things are done, or another hr has passed. Its helping my being more mentally aware of when i want to smoke! - by PIXIEMOM44
  • Awesome! I was a chain smoker up until 5 years ago. You can do it! Just remember, the first three weeks are the hardest. Persevere and you'll make it! - by GIRANIMAL
  • First of all, congrats on taking the steps to quitting smoking. You've got to do it for you so you can be around for your loved ones to love longer.

    I had smoked for almost 40 years, tried everything to quit and finally the only thing that helped me was Chantix.

    It's been controversial but I decided that smoking had more side effects than the "potential" side effects that were rumored about Chantix.

    I asked my doctor for a prescription and decided that if I got the first sign of being uncomfortable on this drug that I would quit it immediately.

    I'm coming up on my 3 year anniversary of not smoking. And it wasn't that hard to do. You're actually allowed to still smoke until the medicine has time to adjust to your system.

    Good Luck - by SUDEAUX
