    I quit Christmas day, as did my wife. We spent the first week or so avoiding eachother (If you even look at me I'll rip your head off.)

    It's amazing how quickly stamina comes back... I could tell after only one week while pushing it in the woods and not anywhere close to being as winded.

    I'm good at quiting, but better at starting-up again... but this time is different, I'm sick and tired of such a filthy habit owning me.

    and that number is at 4 dollars a pack. They are up around 8 or 10 per pack now and heading up again.

    Congrats! Nicotene is one of the only drugs that pleases all the senses, and it's legal. Hugely tough.

    Thanks.

    You must have posted while I was editing... said almost the same thing before, so I removed the repeat.

    Good stuff to all who are making quitting their b----. :)

    Over 7 years and now I've been battling the weight that I put on after quitting smoking. Been dieting and exercising for the past few mos. Down to around 215 from my heaviest ever of 273. I'm 6' 2" so I'll take 215. Now the tricky part is making this healthy change a lifelong commitment just like being a non-smoker.

    Over 8 months now for me. Still think about them after meals, with coffee, when sitting down to "take a break."

    I think I've decided the hardest part is the habit of "the break"... then the following brief disapointment of realizing I can't have one. I've heard the "behavior habits" can last for years. Grrr.

    I'm 15 years quit and there are still moments where I'd like nothing more than to have a cigarette or cigar. But, the moment quickly passes.

    Congrats to both of you on 8 months! :cool:
