    Re: The GREAT TREASURE NET "SMOKE-OUT"

    Good luck to all who try. I quit 10 months, 5 days and 6 hours ago. I smoked for over 40 years and was smoking over 2 packs a day for as long as I can remember. I thought I'd never be able to quit. I used Chantix. I continued smoking and using the Chantix for a little over 2 months. I never got sick to my stomach.I didn't even finish the whole Chantix prescription, I gave them away. Then I just quit and I don't miss it at all. I figure I've saved about $2,400+ so far!! How much is that Minelab??

    I wish I could join you guys too, but I quit one year ago in November.
    In some ways I still miss it, but then I think about all the reasons that I did quit. I don't miss it so much then.
    Our community recently (as of October 1st.) went totally smoke free in all public places including the bars.
    I wish all of you the best of luck. It can be done.

    Too late for me too - quit on July 10th. Third time: quit in '69 after 14 years, was off for 18 years; started again when the ex walked out, quit again 4 years later, off for 12; started again after prostate surgery 4-1/2 years ago.

    You can do it. I went cold turkey after 34 years of smoking the last few were 3 pack days. Sure is nice to be smoke free.

    Tried the patch once and found that they were too hard to keep lit

    All kidding aside, I stopped cold-turkey about 9 months ago and have had absolutely no physical urge to pick up another cig.

    Threw away all matchs, lighters, ash trays and other crutches (I limp a lot now though).

    No weight gain either...

    I'm in with ya- been planning on it since our new insurance kicks in on the first. They'll cover Chantix, so I'm gonna do it again. Second time I quit, I used Zyban and it worked pretty good, lasted 6 months. Had a family problem and went right back under the stress.

    Re: The GREAT TREASURE NET "SMOKE-OUT"

    the zyban made me not want to smoke so it works however the side effects for me was that I was dizzy and out of it off and on during the day..no thank you...I can just imagine if I was depressed and went on the stuff for depression, I would of really been in laaa laaa land.

    Add me to the list too, I will try to stop cold turkey this time around.

    My mom died in June from it and 2 wks later found out my dad had it and he is going through treatment now. After 60yrs smoking he gave it up..Yep I am mighty proud of him and the least I can do is give it up too. God help my poor kids though when I quit!

    Re: The GREAT TREASURE NET "SMOKE-OUT"

    Hello Jim. I'm Jeff and I'm a compulsive smoker. It's been 35 years since my last breath of fresh air.
    Dad quit after 35 years--cold turkey. He asked mom what she wanted for Christmas--she said to quit smoking. He threw away the Winston's and hadn't lit up since. He just got out of the hospital not too long ago with a quadruple bypass and an aneurysm stint. My wife quit after 35 years as well last year.
    I'll be 51 in a couple of weeks. Guess it's time to give myself an early birthday present. Hopefully I'll make it another 49 years. So put me down for a good college try.

    good luck to you guys! i can tell you from my own experience, quitting smoking is every bit as hard as quitting narcotics and drinking. anyone who says nicotine isn't an addictive drug is out of their mind! smoking is sooo bad for your health though, its worth the effort.
