I was just wondering who on here has quit using tobacco before, and how long you have went without it. I am quitting as we speak. Im on my sixth day, cold turkey. I used to smoke a pack a day. So far it hasnt been that hard, but I have been avoiding everyone I know that smokes. What is your experience?

I was a relatively heavy smoker for about 10 years. I started when I was about 14 and began quitting when I was about 24.

Nicoteine withdrawal is agonizing. It feels like a cross between starving and having a searing toothache. I used to drink beer to calm my nic-fits.

I haven't smoked at all in several years. I really do miss it, though.

One of the things I miss most is the little "smoking clubs" that form where ever I work where the people who smoke would meet up outside at the same time and have a smoke together.

My only consolation is that these days, far fewer people smoke and there are relatively few young people in any corporation's "smoking club".

Mark Twain said, "Quitting smoking is easy. I've done it a thousand times." Except I did quit smoking but I dip like its my job now. It seems I tell myself every night before I go to bed that im quitting the next day, then no longer than 5 min past the alarm going off im in the shower dippin away.

ive been smoking since i was 12 and quit once when i was 19 for almost a year. because of stress, depression, insomnia, and being around smokers i started back up. i'm smoking on average 1 pack every 2-3 days.

i'll be quitting in may as part of an agreement with my gf.

I quit smoking cold turkey a year ago, after having smoked tobacco (not cigs) for about 10 years - went well until late summer, when I started smoking socially again - I'm still in that stage, but it feels like I'm slowly going downhill again...

I found that quitting cold turkey was terrible the first days, but after a week, the yearning slowly started to diminish. I did the same things as I did when still smoking - there's no point in running away for situations or people you'll encounter later anyways. In fact, it's a good self test, and besides that, if you have been a smoker, those situations will almost always be challenging (there's an increased risk of starting to smoke again for the rest of your life).
So I just confronted what I'd have to confront sooner or later, and found it was was horrible in the beginning (especially during the weekends), but I think it helped me a lot quitting cold turkey back then...

I've quit a few times now, my longest stretch has been 6 months, might not sound long to you non smokers but trust me its an eternity!!! I was planning on quitting for my new years resolution but then i thought who am i kidding it's 11:59 and im enjoying this freshly lit ciggarette. They say you quit only if YOU! really want too i personally think it would be alot easier for some people if while they were quitting they weren't surrounded by 5 -10 good friends who still smoke...
