Great Decision - and definitely one that I need to do too!!! I just got some samples of the Nicorette Gum - but have to say that I don't like the feeling they give me in my mouth so I need to find another way to quit since the gum is not for me. How are the patches working for you & your wifey?? Let me know how it's going as I need to stop too!!!

Well guess I feel like your wife right now - things are so stressful that it's really hard to stop right now. I will probably wait til the holidays are over and then give those patches a try!!! Sounds like you have already slowed down so that's a Great Thing to hear!!!! The docs always told me that if u can't completely quit at least cut it way down!!! Hope you have a Fantastic Friday!!!

Good for you two. I quit several years ago..but I did it cold turkey. I found the first week the worst..and my boyfriend smokes and still does, so that made it worse. However...chewing gum and keeping your mouth working is good. Lots of water...and just don't think about smoking. Get out and exercise...that helps too...after a while it will get better. I used to have cravings ...for a long time..but I never started smoking again....

Great! I wish you luck, I hope, I'll manage it myself also one day. Until now I couldn't. Perhaps the patches will help you. It's good you can support each other. My friend doesn't smoke and if I'm with him it's easy not to smoke. It also helps me when I'm occupied with pleasant things... or just so busy I haven't time to think on it...

really this is a good decision.. but what you are going to start instead of that i mean any mouth freshner as chewing gum or else.. or else try to quit is slowly othere wise again after few days you will start to smoke.... i am having experience of this... that's why i am saying..

Hi camo. Good for you in deciding to stop smoking. I quit about 2 1/2 months ago. I used to do 1 1/2 pak per day . cut down to a pak a week I live with my son and he got married anf his new wife got really nasty about my smoking. I was smoking out side all the time. She claimed it came in the windows where ever I smoked. so I stared walking when I smoke. I had been trying to quite for some time any way. One day I just decided enough was enough and quit. so when ever I felt the urge for one I would go for a walk. My suggestion for you is to get really invovled with some project to take your mind off it. I would suggest going for a walk but since you have 3 youngin and it is rainy there that might be impossiable. Good luck and let me know how you are doing.

Well done i am proud it is not easy well i havent compleatly stopped i have one now and then :) but its a good step as i used to smoke 30 a day down to 1-2 every 2 days or so :). I did find keeping myself active but using the kids for that was my way of doing it when i really got the urge i would just pull out all their toys and play with them for ages that usually took my mind off of it :). I dont know if anyone has noticed but i havent really been on here much either as i found that sitting on my PC all day was the hardest thing to stop as i would just puff away like crazy while i sat on it so therfore i just stay off it as much as poss untill i get used to not smoking at it again.. Thanks very much for the encouragement it is very appreciated hope you have a great day and well donr once again on you stopping the nasty habbit :)

Hi camo I just came across this discussion of yours from way back when. How are you doing with the smoking. I have pretty much stoped. I do get a pack now and then but it last for about 2 weeks. I bought a pack yesterday smoked a part of one then threw the pak in the garbage at the store.
