how is everyone doing so far?

I hope everyone hasn't given up on stopping smoking? Kelly did you set a stop date to just say I have had enough of this being a slave to cigarettes and be strong and over come the urge to light up? I guess it is somewhat harder to stop when someone you live with still smokes, you might feel like you are being deprived of something you enjoy doing, I really did enjoy smoking and for the longest time I really didn't want to stop in fact I told people that when they asked me why I didn't stop. I always wondered what people did with their hands all the time since they didn't smoke. Well now that I don't smoke I don't miss not holding a cigarette all the time, in fact it is actually more handy not to have to find somewhere to lay a cigarette while I am trying to do something.

I think today is the last day this month to follow the almanac but there are 3 days next month I think and I believe that the 3rd is one of them I could be wrong on that, and I know some folks think that is a lot of witch craft or star gazing but there are gazillions of old timers and some not so old timers that swear by it, and I will admit, I think there is something to it too and not only the smoking thing.

Gigi50 I guess you are still not smoking? I also noticed some withdrawals or what ever they are called but everyone I talk to in the medical field tells me that will all get better in a while. I hope so because some of it is annoying, do you notice getting up in the middle of the night almost every night, I do, from 12:00 to 2:00 every night and it is hard to get enough sleep like that and I even get night sweats some times, I guess it could be menopause..lol but really I am not sure what causes it.

Anyway, I wanted to check in with the folks on here and see how you all are doing. Good luck. Be safe.

When two people live in the same house sometimes you can help your partner stop smoking at the same time as you quit - of course a household of two people going through withdrawal symptoms can be pretty bad, but if you can cope with the strain it seems easier than trying to quit when you can still smell cigarettes in the house, and just raid your partners packets when the cravings get too bad.

One week quit and yeah.... my sleeps sooo messed up...i'm reframing it tho....loving the transition....like..."oooh i'm shaking", or "yey it's 4 a.m. and i'm wide awake"....anything just to keep me from putting a butt to my lips. It helps that my partner smokes....like when you started smoking behind your folks back/ bike sheds/ rebel...except the other way round

I myself never smoke, but one of my friend is trying to stop smoking. He did a good job for the first week but then start to smoke again. I would recommend your website to him.

Stop smoking is a hard wort to do, having in mind that is really bad habit and giving it up is not just to say it.

Hi everyone,

I find that reading blogs like this one, watching anit-smoking videoes on youtube and reading books like The Easy Way to Stop smoking, very helpful.

It has been a month for me already and I'm loving it. Last time managed 3 months and started again, this time I'm going all the way

Its always hard to quit when someone you love or lives with still smokes but it has to be so important you can influence them also. You have to quit for your health so help your loved ones do the same.

It's hard quitting something that you love to do unless you put your heart and devotion to it. I used to have a perfect smile, but smoking ruined it. I wanted to have that smile back, so I paid a visit to one of the many dentists Knoxville has. He said that after my teeth whitening treatment, I should quit smoking, or at least try to. I'm working my way to completely stopping. I haven't given up. That same Knoxville dentist was also a smoker, but he quit just so that he can inspire his patients. I hope I can do the same.

I encourage all to go out and try this app for your android phone. I love it.

I have not had a tobacco cigarette in over 2 years, and am loving it. I use an electronic cigarette that I bought from 4everecig.com and it is working great for me. I don't have to clear my throat every 10 seconds anymore, and I do not have the heavy chest. I actually run 3 miles per day now. I have not experienced the weight gain because I am still getting the nicotine. All in all I could not be happier, healthier, cheaper, and greener than real cigs.

I lost my father to cigarettes and i recommend to smoke e-cigs instead of tobacco quit smoking tobacco!

Living without smoking is a very painful factor for a chain smoker. It is really very tough to abstain from smoking. I noticed it from my friend Adam L. He was a chain smoker and tried to left smoking but he couldn't. Thanks.
