Freedom dictates you can interpret any feeling/emotion anyway you choose. I suggest you enjoy your new withdrawal buzz while you have it! ;)

My best tip is to stay far far far away from the patch ...
I was on the patch for 3 months ... then one day I had a smoke and after that I was smoking twice as much as I used to
I went cold turkey on Monday and I haven't had one since
For cravings I use candy and sex ... yes they both work good!

I just meant that I wouldn't be a big help...
What with me smoking all the time and all. ;)

Are you coming to System tomorrow night?
Please say yes!

Disco - thanks sweetie! 3 days & i'm still cold turkey ... although I do feel like eating any food in sight! :)

Know what you mean about candy & sex .. i've been on a mad hunt for some sugar free candy so that I don't loose my teeth as opposed to my lungs! :)

YAY for you!! Congrats:)!!

It helped me not going out for a couple of weeks - b/c drinks and smoking went hand in hand for me!
(I lasted two years - not one drag! but I broke one stupid night and now I'm smoking again - so I don't recommend testing yourself once you've quit either!!)

it was nice meeting you on Friday with JEMZ btw Linzee :)!!
hope you had a fun bday!!

quitting smoking is sucking for me too. Try to forget how shitty it feels, take yourself out of 'smoking' situations (bars, etc.), and chew lots of gum. Good luck.:)

I quit new years...the first couple of days will be hell while you are going through withdrawal. you'll get the shakes, probably get an upset stomach and your hands and feet will be cold all the time......but it will get better. :) It's been almost 5 months for me...I have been tempted to smoke especially when clubbing or drinking but I remember that it's not worth it in the long run and when worse comes to worse I'll just smoke a joint and the cravings go away....I feel much better now that I don't smoke. I have so much more energy, my skin is clear and healthy and my car doesn't stink.....that's the stuff that really keeps me motivated.

Some Tips....

- Drink LOTS of water
- When you are hungry snack on fruits/veggies but keep in mind that you will probably gain a few pounds regardless. A heavy smoker burns an extra 200 calories a day + smoking increases the metabolism.

-When you quit smoking your metabolism slows down. To compensate start working out. You'll feel a lot better.

Discovery Health has an amazing info section on quitting smoking.
Check it out when you have a chance (http://health.discovery.com/centers/quit_smoking/quit_smoking.html)

Here's something from their site. The top 10 reasons NOT to quit smoking <---- kind of puts things into perspective! #8 is my favorite!

10. That lighter comes in handy for birthday candles.

9. Your ex-spouse wanted you to quit and you won't give him/her the satisfaction.

8. The occasional holes in your clothes give you a needed excuse to shop

7. Philip Morris needs that money more than you do.

6. Those extra wrinkles give you that "mature" look.

5. The smell on your coat makes it easy to pick it out of a pile at a party.

4. If not for the smoking you'd be perfect, and nobody likes a perfect person.

3. If your sense of smell came back you'd have to do something about that litter box.

2. You wouldn't get any exercise at all if you didn't run outside the building every hour for a cigarette.

1. That rattle when you breathe reassures you that you're still alive.

Good Luck!!

I also recently quit smoking about a week ago. The last cigarette I had was a Marlboro Ultra Light. I had been battling with quitting for 3 years. I think this time it's going to work.
Try to not frequent bars and clubs, chew gum, and whenever you get a craving think about horrible, disgusting images of cancerous lungs.

That or try the elastic around the wrist thing. a friend of mine used that when she wanted to get over a guy, it worked but her wrist was red all the time..haha.

Candy and sex are also a must!

All that you or any other smoker needs to know about is this....



ALLEN CARR'S EASY WAY TO STOP SMOKING




Myself and ,well, probably 10-15 people I know have quit using this $10 book. YOu can find it Chapters again(it was out of print for a while).

Allen Carr created a method that leaves you with virtually no cravings, withdrawl or disire to smoke ever again.
To good to be true? Consider this;

The day that I quit (3 years ago) I went to Industry and partied HARD not craving at all! No lies.

The book is only 130 pages long and kicks ass. Trust me. It IS the miracle cure.

I've had a couple friends who went on it and they all had serious problems with it
Personally I would never touch it if my life depended on it
As for the weight gain ... last time I quit smoking I gained a good 20 - 30 lbs
Thats why this time I'm working out ... and trying to eat a bit more healthy
