It has now been 6 weeks and smoke free! Today will be my third consecutive day without dipping. Hopefully I am on the path of good health.

Major congrats! Pat yourself on the back because that's no small accomplishment.

Now, are you putting all that extra $$$ to good use buying ammo and other gun related accessories? Hehe.

Way to go!!

I quit once for 7 mths.. one of my more sane times in life..

Congradulations! Keep it up.

One thing that will help, and helped with me quitting dipping is to put the money you'd spend on addiction into a jar. Seeing what $3/day adds up to right in front of your eyes will really work as a good incentive.

I quit smoking 16 years ago, best health decision I've ever made ...

Congrats...I quit many times in the past but it has been 4 years now. There are days when I still want one but I have resisted. That is a slippery slope I will have to live with for my whole life. The key is to quit for yourself. Not for someone else.

I don't have any, but I have never understood how someone couldn't quit for their kids. Why on earth anyone would want to subject their children to a parent that stinks to high heaven and could wind up getting sick all for something that only derives pleasure from weakness is beyond me.

I disagree. I mark 6 months smoke free yesterday. I do it because I have a baby girl and I wouldnt want her to see me someday, in a hospital bed with an O2 tank coming out of my nostrils. If it were just me, I'd be smoking still.

Good for you!

May I ask you how you did it? My dad is a long-time smoker and I would be much appreciated if you could give me some hints how to help him quit it.

Cold turkey and lots of Red Man.

Now I am quitting Red Man so I don't look like this --------->

Bubble gum, blow pops, sun flower seeds and lots of coffee are helping ease the cravings. Quitting is something that you have got to WANT to do.

The patch can work (it did for me, recently))

Zyban can work (it did for me....several years ago, but I started back)

But like anything else in life, you have to WANT to do it. Simple as that.

You make my point. YOU do not want here to see you that way. My wife did not want me to smoke but I did. The doctor told me to stop but I didn't. When my mother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer I decided I wanted to quit. I stopped cold turkey the next day. After the physical addiction is over, which is the easy part, the mental part starts. That is where YOU have to want to quit to not start back
