Go Up « previous next » Go Down

I just put my 14 year old dog down today because he had heart problems and was barely breathing for about 20 hours. It was horrible to watch him labor with every breath and he probably felt like he was suffocating. I have heard that's what emphysema is like, so in that regard, I would not wish that fate on anyone or myself.

I smoked regularly for 10 years and quit soon after my daughter was born. Working out, sunflower seeds, and nico gum were how I did it. I still crave cigs and have them every now and then especially when I have a beer.

I still haven't had a whole cigarette since June 21st. I think I previously said June 19th but that was an error. It was Father's Day which was June 21st. I did have a couple drags off one a few days after but haven't even done that since the beginning of July. Only bad thing is I have gained a little weight but I think that is better than smoking.

UPDATE: Had one cigarette about 4 weeks ago and it almost made me puke...didn't even finish it! Would have prolly  never even smoked it if I weren't drinking at the time. So almost 7 months non-smoking for me! Post up with your progress folks.

Well I fell off the wagon and back on again a number of times but I'm still trying! I keep telling myself the money I'm spending on this nasty habit is a shiny new bike Wheels

If you continue to try, that means you really want out of it !   Stick with it  -- it'll happen.   So will the shiny new bike ! !

I have known people that just decided to quit and never smoked again, but most people take several tries...I have know a few that took 9 or 10 tries.  Just keep trying!!!
