    hi to everyone that remembers me from a while ago, just a quick note to say that I am still not smoking even after coming up against most of the excuses available to us. ie. pub,holidays,birthdays,funerals,stressed,peer pressure etc.Been through all of them and not smoked, so for anyone just starting out, its hard, but don't think it cant be done. Smoking ruled my life for over 30 years and now I am coming up to 2years not smoking. There is no tip I can give anyone other than what some of the wiser people here have said to me and many others, and that is to not light a cigarette and take a puff of it.Do whatever you need to get through the initial cravings, just don t smoke.My younger sister is trying to give up now,and names me as an inspiration. She s called me many things over the years, but never that, so I am taking that one, and feel quite proud. Good luck anyone starting out, and well done those still going. Pedro

    Congratulations @ChRiSpY for being smoke free for 6 years! Well done, six years is such a wonderful quit. The lido deck has been super busy this year but we made sure to save some tossed salad for you . It would be great if you could pop in and give us an update on your wonderful smoke free life and lets us know how you intend to celebrate.

    3 runs completed this last week. A 2 and a half miler on Tuesday and Wednesday and a 6 miler last night (Saturday). The key for me is to keep exercising. I feel the benefits and it helps with my quit. Entering runs in the local area with the money being saved from not smoking.

    Here is a vid from our friend, Joel, about 'how to do nothing w/out a smoke. This part of quitting was hard for me. In-between tasks or taking breaks I would usually sit on my back stoop and think about what to do next or just look at my garden...that light on that leaf. I thought I needed a smoke to do this but, I didn't need a smoke. I needed the break, I needed some nice deep breaths of oxygen, I needed a moment to collect my thoughts. Smoking was non essential and facilitated nothing but bondage.

    No smoking here in New Jersey. Smokers here are exiled to the curb. (I'm at the airport.) So happy to be able to hug my tiny new granddaughter and know she isn't being tainted by smoke.

    Congratulations @Jayhawk for being 6 months smoke free. Well done Jay on being a 50%er... you are half way through the toughest year of your quit. You are doing so well and it would be fantastic to hear how you intend to celebrate this milestone. So I asked around to see if anyone had any advice for you.... and I'm pretty sure Bill's message was to "Keep Going"

    Oh yes my best friend was my JAC (jillars air cigarette) except I didn't use a straw or pen like many others had. Mine was invisible and I never had to worry about forgetting it anywhere lol.

    Glad you are fine, Jack. Busy is the best, distractions keep you away from nicotine. You have 10 fine days. Congratulations. This is a really big deal and we are all really glad you are building a successful quit.

    yep, mrsguest it is hard. I felt like jumping out of my skin but, taking breaths (oxygen became my new drug of choice) peeling a satsuma and enjoying that delicious-ness helped me a lot. Also WATER. Water water water ! And throwing any kind of distraction my way, jumping jacks, screaming showers etc. I would sit and sketch or write just to give my fingers something to do. @jillar made a fake smoke with just a straw and sucked on that. Believe us, mrsguest, it gets better. You won't feel terrible forever, I promise. Each crave you beat reclaims a receptor in your brain.

    Great to hear from you @pedro68! Of course I remember you. You quit just a couple weeks before I did. That's another great point you make about your sister and how she's looked to you for her own inspiration to quit. The pride of accomplishing this goes on and on Congrats on 2 Years Pedro. On to 3 years now

    You guys are all awesome. I wanna thank you all so much for your patience, tolerance, enthusiasm and kind support. Well, I did it. I checked my ‘app’ quite a bit over the holidays as my quitversary was approaching. I had a great Christmas holiday, surrounded by family and friends. I did it all without a single puff. I am really quite proud of myself, and really thankful for the help along the way. I wish you all great success in your quits, and peace in your lives. Rory

    Oh my go to candy was soft peppermint puffs. I bought by the bucket that first six months or so lol. So my fellow Jill, I occupied my mind by staying glued to the board. I found that reading posts, supporting others, celebrating milestones, socializing and playing games really helped keep my mind off my misery

    Superman would win in a fight against Batman. However, Batman is cooler than Superman. Batman also had a cool car and banged more chicks than Superman. Thus, the Dark Knight gets my vote. (Shakes head in disgust)...I think we're forgetting someone aren't we? Young Boo's favorite superhero...
