    Awesome achievement, Spock. I quit years ago and I STILL have cravings. "Mad Men" is a huge trigger, so I have to imagine the rest of the stuff that goes with it. That room stinks like hell. Don Draper's suit pocket is full of lint and loose tobacco shavings. He has a slight headache and his lungs burn. His fingers and breath stink. But yeah, I'd still do him.

    Re: Quitting Smoking

    Update: 5 months tomorrow. I'm so happy to be here.
    I took up biking, (who knew exercising was way easier when you can breathe? ), and just last week took a 50 km ride in the country. I took my time and a lunch and enjoyed the countryside. I'm so glad to be a quitter.
    Thanks to everyone for their words of support during the early days when it was incredibly difficult, you are a lovely group of people!

    Re: Quitting Smoking

    Big congratulations! So happy that you took control of your life. I am formally quitting on Sunday. I've been using e-cigarettes, but still fall off the wagon and have a 'disposable' cigarette.

    Congrats to spockwhat and best of luck to you beerbelly. My husband will be 1 year smoke free on October 31! I'm very proud of him. I really didn't think he could do it, but he proved me wrong. As an added benefit, he now gets much cheaper health insurance through his employer.

    Now if I can just get my youngest son to quit, there would be no smokers in my immediate family.

    Re: Quitting Smoking

    ONE YEAR today!

    Just popped in to say... THANK YOU to Lil Bit, captain, famita, Cootie, Miss Scarlet, Punkin, candor and beerbelly. I wanted to say thanks because when I look back to a year ago, I remember just how HARD it was... and every bit of support and a positive word was so helpful... When you are on the edge of addiction your mind is telling you one thing only, to get that nicotine, so every outside word of support can be just what you need to not fall of that wagon and remain a non-smoker.

    Which I really feel like I am now.
    In fact, as a matter of celebration, I put in a 100 km cycling week (2, 25 km rides and 1, 50 kim ride) and I did it with no chest pain or being short of breath or excessive tiredness. I feel FANTASTIC, I'm a 40-something year old kid again!

    So, thanks again!
