Been smoking a pack a day for a little over ten years now (started really young) and I haven't had one in 24 hours . I'm not feeling too bad, just sweating a bit and been hacking but besides that not too bad. I hope I can stay strong!

    Congrats. I smoked for years, quit for a few months and started back. Hardest thing I have ever tried to do.

    Good luck! Just happened to see this video yesterday, so here's an inspiration:

    Congratulations! Stick to it! If you can go 24 hours then you can go 24 more and so on and so on!

    I have been trying to quit over and over and the best I can do is cut down which I have recently - but I just can't make it to cold turkey even with an eCig (nicotine crutch).

    I keep saying if I could go 24 hours that is all I need - hahahah - but I mean it and I swear if I ever beat this I will never smoke again...

    Keep up the good work!

      Never quit quitting. I smoked for decades and tried every method known. I don't think there is one method that fits everyone. I used the buddy method. I quit with a friend in my chat room. There was some sort of behavioral decision making in play I can only liken to self induced NLP. Within a day I knew for sure I was never going to smoke again. It was amazing. No withdrawals, no cravings, no bad feelings. I just no longer smoked after all those years. I wish I could just transfer that process to everyone who has tried to quit and failed. I very rarely give smoking a thought anymore but I'm also wary enough to know that with one cigarette I'd be back to a pack and a half a day again instantly.

      When you hear someone telling you what YOU can't do, they are usually talking about what THEY can't do.

      Congrats Jivens,
      Being consistent is necessary. If you will remain away from smoking for at least 2 months then it will be great.
      Best of Luck for the future.
