ive been smoking for about 10 years (well, 9, i quit while i was pregnant, and lil longer) i smoke about a pack a day..i reallllllly want to quit. but it is soo hard! a couple months ago i decided that "today was the day"...that lasted a whole 8 hrs!! it was the longest 8 hrs of my life!! its ALLLLL i would think about..and then i picked up my moms dog, it screeched, my mom yelled at me for "hurting" him..i got mad, (i was already stressed enuff) so i went out and a bought another pack..but im ready to quit again, im just scared..how long does it take to not crave them, or think about it anymore? i know im gonna have coughing attacks..how long do those last? what can i do to take my mind off it? (now im sitting here crying, cuz im scared, cuz i know its gonna be hard) i just have so much stress in my life, that smoking is what calms me..i joined a gym, so i think that will help..im already like 100+ overweight..so smoking, on top of my fatness, its like im trying to kill myself..and then i think of my daughter..shes my life, she already has no dad in her life..if i go to, that would suck!! i really just wish i could wake up in the morning, and not crave them at all!!

I quit when I moved in with my SO ... smoke gave him asthma attacks. I quit cold turkey. It was tough and SO was very very supportive. There should be no nicotine in the blood after 100 hours from the last smoke. It can then take another 2-3 weeks for the brain chemistry to be undone. The mental cravings are another story.I had times when I could just grab a packet of cigs and eat them. But here I am just over 7 years after and not had a craving like that for about 6.5 years. LOL thats about the time my daughter arrived.
