Corey, good for you, you CAN do it! I smoked a pack and a half a day, that was over ten years ago. I just kept postponing that smoke, and found that my head did not, in fact, explode. Was it easy? No. Was it worth it? You bet! Just like Billybonfire, the cravings came and went for a couple of years, but didn't last very long. The important thing is to NOT TAKE THAT FIRST PUFF! Or you will be hooked again. If you have to, avoid your smoking friends for a while, if they are friends, they will understand and won't smoke around you.
I started at 15. Smoked for 15 yrs and then quit for 7 months. After 7 months, I hit a cigg 1 time Thats all it took.
I have been tobacco free now since Jan 25th 2012. Almost 1 yr..... All on my own.
Just gotta refrain from that "One time".... I would be at almost 2 yrs, if not for that one time
It gets easier. But the cravings are still there.
My Wife and I have both quit now. It helps to have support and thats something you can definitely find here
Good luck..... You wont regret it.
Congratulations for everyone who has quit, and encouraging the rest of you smokers to quit NOW!
My parents finally both quit after pretty much life long use. Chantix was the magic bullet for each of them.
They both smoked since before I was born. I was two weeks premature and weighed 4lbs 2 oz at birth. I now have adult onset asthma, and I'm guessing a good portion of it is from 2nd hand smoke growing up.
Cheers and good luck to you!

sounds good doesn't it ?
Went to the doctor and he put me on chantix we shall see how it helps.
I quit on my wedding day May 17, 2003. I was just under 33 and cigarettes had been part of my life for 22 years. I just decided to quit and stayed with it. I did sneak about a dozen smokes in the first few years, but they always tasted and smelled so bad that I could only take a drag or two. I suppose I could have "worked" at it and started again, but I decided that I was done with them. I found that it was very hard to stop until was ready. When I was ready, I set a date and stayed with it. I still crave them from time to time, but that gets easier over the years. I will admit that I do enjoy a cigar every once in a while though.
I'll post again..
I used the book to finally quit. I had stopped and relapsed a few times, sometimes for as long as 6 months.
In My Opinion-
You have to figure out why you do any behavior, decide to change that behavior, deal with the consequences of that behavior.
And it does not hurt to ask for support.
I struggled with alcohol for years. Finally had enough, and decided to stop. Stopped on my own,
July 26, 2009. Not a drop since. But just stopping wasn't working. Needed to learn how to live again. So 6 months almost to the day, went to AA.
Changed my life..
Same with quitting tobacco. You can get support (here) or elsewhere, use every resource available, and figure out what works for YOU. This is an individual decision.
Just my thoughts..
My doctor put me on chantix took my first one today.
Best of luck. Glad you are taking the steps to quit.
You are now one step closer. A step in the right direction. Closer now to success. Be a winner!
That's enough coin to cover the stove, splitter, and a new saw. Oh think of the saws you could buy....
Seems as if kicking one addiction could lead to another, perhaps healthier one.
Still smoking, but up a chimney! I like it.
I do want a cat stove maybe it can be my reward.
