    The mornings are the toughest. It seems when I wake up I feel empty and hopeless.
    After I have two huge cups of strong coffee and come here, I feel better.
    I'm still shocked that the coffee doesn't increase my desire to smoke like the old days.
    I guess it's all about feeling that I still have something. An hour after coffee, I'll probably be chewing gum.
    No weight gain yet. In fact, I'm not really indulging that much on anything more than usual.
    Lots of stressful things have come up making we wonder why I ever chose this time to quit.
    I do know that these circumstances are tests that will end up making me stronger in the long run.
    Thanks for the support! I will come here each day and update until everyone gets sick of me!
    Have a great day!
    Good for you guy... Let's see ya go 90 DAYS!!!! If your still being a "good boy" your on your own then! Maybe you'll get some others to join you on this thread.... Maybe you'll be an inspiration to a few others.

    I have finally worked down to maybe 10 pieces of gum a day. Find one you like, that fits a craving.

    But I found out that some of my favorite gums decided not to like me.

    My doc said to lay off the Sorbitol. It really has helped, ( by the way, alot of sugarless gum has Sorbitol, and some people don't play well with it).

    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    Yeah, sometimes the options one gets really suck and I had to grit my teeth when buying gum. Not one brand at Shopper's was without aspartame, sorbitol, and all that other crap!
    I suppose I could go to the Hippie store and buy a $10 pack (LOL) but I'm not really that upset.
    I've really not chewed gum at all most of my life and I have stayed away from diet products too.
    So in comparison to the vile tobacco and all its extra chemicals, I'll use the lesser of two evils in order to help break the habit for good.
    It's tough for people like me and it took a few years to find a deodorant that did not contain aluminum, parabens, phthalates or propylene glycol and ACTUALLY WORKED!
    I pay more than double of most brands but it lasts a long time and is worth it to me. Try finding a toothpaste without fluoride at most stores!
    Anyway, DAY 6 and I'm still smoke free! All the cravings I experience are now mental, as the bulk of the crap is out of the bloodstream.
    Thoughts enter my mind (about smoking) and a stronger voice counters with a firm NO!
    So far I'm winning the battle but I will not lay back feeling victorious quite yet. The enemy will attack again and again. I must fortify my defenses daily!
    Thanks my friends for your help!

    Yay, you, you're doing great!

    I was an enthusiastic smoker for maybe twenty years; you know how some smokers say they hate smoking and wish they could quit because, well, they really hate it? That wasn't me. I loved smoking. One morning I got up, it was winter, windows closed, house stunk, and I realized I actually was as stupid as people had been telling me I was. After I'd gone about three hours I knew I was going to make it and decided that even if I was facing a firing squad I wouldn't ask for a cigarette. I did get patches, and I always had a drinking straw or something similar to fidget with since I am a nervous fidgeter. I gathered up all the packs around the house (I had lots because I had one in every room, at every table and desk) and put them out of sight but I didn't get rid of them, and I always carried a pack with me when I went out. I know that sounds counter-intuitive, especially since I just finished saying I wouldn't smoke if I was going to be shot, but I didn't want to get into some panicked state and start obsessing about a smoke. I heard about some guy who carried cigarettes for decades after he'd quit, I know for some people that would be a bad idea, but it's a comfort thing, I guess. I did gain weight, which didn't seem fair because, weirdly, I lost my taste for sweets and didn't think I was eating more than I had been. I did develop a real fondness for Vegemite and very flavorful things for a while though so either it's the Vegemite or a trick of metabolism that got me.

    Anyway, that was me. The main thing I wanted to say was that YOU - your being, personality, soul, spirit, whatever you want to call it - are bigger and stronger than the pesky individual habits and desires. It sounds like you're figuring that out for yourself so you're on your way. You do have to keep your guard up but I found that the times between urges for a smoke would get longer and longer and each time you resist it gets easier. Again - yay you!

    smoked cigarettes for 42 years, have been smoke free and tobacco free for the past 10 years. quit at midnight on New Years 2005 and never looked back. I was a two to three pack a day guy.

    I treated the world as a no smoking zone when I decided to quit, beginning with my truck, my home (go figure I'd smoke outside to keep it from stinking) and everywhere else. It was easy during the day because I never smoked in customers homes, the hard part was the lighting up the minute I got in the truck to go somewhere. I set myself up 6 months prior to going cold turkey and it worked.

    sheesh, I'd need three jobs to keep up with my habits if I smoked again.

    good luck Muddy, and just think of the strides you've already made.

    Come on guy... See all the folks who are behind you...? "So far" sounds weak and / or "I'm going to give in". No negative phases... Hang tough. You may have stresses going on in your life right now (we all do) but battling THIS BATTLE is all mental now.... Hang tough. PLEASE!!!!!!!! Don't you fail NOW.... Use this thread and the accountability that comes with it buddy. Best wishes and encouragement guy.... later, Brad
