Congratulations sir and good luck! Smoking is simply one of those things where the risks far outweigh the benefits. Just remember you are doing this for yourself and nobody else. I did not realize my mother had quit cigarettes until somebody told me six weeks after the fact. This is about you and your health, nothing else : )

Congrats, bro!

I haven't been able to do that yet, and I've tried repeatedly. It's hard!

Good luck with it!

Great Job...!!!

I think a lot of us that "have issues" have used this substance over the years as an avenue to stuff our emotions...

My habit of smoking lasted over 25+ years...(kinda stopped counting after that).

I kinda figured out along the way, that as long as my desire to quit outweighs the lies that my mind is telling me...(I can accept having really means nothing).

Milkshakes initially worked great...and helped me to ward off initial craves...(perhaps it could help you too).

Staying hydrated also helps...

Anything is possible...

Rise above.
