  • Patience
    You give us hope. Thank you. I am determined never to take another puff for as long as I live. But, I have also resigned to the fact that perhaps I will struggle my addiction to nicotine for the rest of my life. At least this is how i feel . I must confess that I do miss having a cigarette with a gl...

  • I actually lost weight!
    This is an excellent thread because many people are reluctant to quit in fear of weight gain. As for me, I really just ate a lot of carrots the first week. Literally three or four bags full of carrots. Then I switched to grapes, then watermelon, etc. Without exageration, I ate one half water melon f...

  • Because Now it Really Hurts!
    Don't forget to mention the excruciating toothaches and the painfull treatment of bad teeth steming from and directly linked to smoking. Far better to undergo the pain of withdrawal than to lie down on the dentist chair, with your mouth wide open and a drill pushing its way down your tooth to clean ...

  • I Want "Something"
    Dave I couldn't say it any better. This is it. There is something that is not there. What is it for heaven's sake? Have not our bodies already adjusted to nicotine deprivation? I even feel that "void" when I am visiting people. I just get bored during the gap that was filled by going out and having ...
