Wouldn't have ever believed it, but...


Recommended Posts

I have now been tobacco-free for 1 year. I had used tobacco products for the last 25 years, and I went cold turkey March 1, 2014. I think I have the addiction beat now. :-)

Glad to hear it. I smoked a Camel when I was 8 years old and got sick as a dog. Haven't had one since. Cigarettes killed my mom when she was 39 and my dad got lung cancer at a later age but it was caught in time to fix it. I hate cigarettes with a passion and will always applaud when some quits. Hang in there.

Good on you, mav, and all the rest of you guys who quit.


Wish I could get my father and stepmother to give up smoking.  The last time I visited them, their place smelled like smoke, and I could hear them coughing at random times throughout the day.

As a health professional, I tell my patients that about the best thing they can do for their health is to stop smoking.  Congratulations to all you folks who have quit.  I know it is not easy to quit; in fact, it's possibly the hardest thing some of you all have ever done.  My father smoked for forty some odd years, and he is certainly paying the price now.  I know he would have stopped long before he had to if were something that is easily done. 


I used smokeless tobacco for the better part of the past 12 years, but I laid it down on January 1 of this year.  There are some days that I just avoid going to the store, because if I did, I would probably not have the willpower to keep from buying a pouch. The physiologic addiction is long gone by now, but I'm not sure the psychological addiction will ever stop.    


Again, congratulations to you all.

Thanks. I quit smoking 12 years ago, but it was replaced with smokeless tobacco, which is what I gave up in March last year.

With the price of tobacco products these days, not only have you improved your health, you've saved a ton of money too. Congratulations!

Yea, I figured at a pack and a half a day I've saved 42,000 since 92.
