1 Bump

Has anyone quit smoking?

I quit smoking almost a week ago. And so far its been easy my question is does it keep getting easier or does it get harder? I just want to know what to expect. I am seriously suprised it has been going so well.

  • I quit six years ago, and I remember it being really hard for the first 4 or 5 weeks. Did you quit cold turkey or use patches or gum? I have known a few people that quit and said it was pretty easy for them....it was hard for me, but soooooooo worth it. Congratulations for quitting! You will feel a lot better--not to mention save a lot of money! :)

  • I quite cold turkey on the 15th, I am so proud of myself maybe its because i really want to do it for myself this time. Thank you everyone for the words of encouragement.

    thats probably why :) quitting is really only possible if you want to. sometimes people quit because they think they should, or various other reasons. but quitting is more will power than anything else, so as long as you want to & keep wanting to, you have all the tools you need to stop. i wish i were as strong as you, i keep telling myself to quit and i havent been able to yet. great job!

  • I quit abou 2 years ago and I can't believe I have made it this long. It gets way easier! I liked quitnet.com its free and it tracks your progress..I checked mine because I actually forgot when I quit. It says I have not smoked 12,224 cigs..how disgusting is that. My friends who didnt quit have smoked that many in only 2 years!!! It also tells you how much money you have saved. Way to go by the way, you will be sooooo much healthier!
