and I can stay in my snug, warm little house and don't have to go out there to smoke.

ANOTHER  reason to be happy I am a non-smoker!

I just checked my count-up clock and it says 200 days.  What a nice round number!

Trust me, all you newly arrived quitters, if I can do this, EVERYONE can.  It's not easy, but I am proof it IS doable Do your preparation work, commit to the effort 100% and you will be successful - I promise.

than throw a piece of gum in your mouth, or put on a patch!  If you want to be successful in quitting smoking, you need to do the preparation.  Educating yourself on nicotine withdrawal and the effect of smoking on your body and brain is absolutely necessary to a successful quit.  Once you have done the reading, you need to prepare a plan that will work for YOU, and choose a product that you think is the best for you.  if any.   Once you have done the reading, made your plan, and gathered your crave busters, it is time to set your quit date.  You must then make your commitment that smoking is not something you are going to do anymore.  Commitment is THE key ingredient to success.

Joining a community like EX is also important, I think, to a successful quit.  Ask for advice and support as you need it.  We all here are behind you - but you must also do YOUR part. Together, we CAN do this!

Quit 7/4/12

I smoked for 40+ years, and never tried to quit before last July 4.  I listened to my addicted mind and the brainwashing that said I was not strong enough.  With the help of Chantix, Allen Carr's book and the folks on this site, I have not smoked a cigarette or inhaled one puff from one in SIX MONTHS!

You all should understand that it is not easy, but it IS doable.  You need to do your reading and preparation work, and commit to the effort 100%.  If you do, though, I promise you will be successful.  If I can do this, EVERYONE can!

Just DO it!
