23 Days :)

hi everyone .. i just wanted to post and say that i am still not smoking and its been 23 days ... its such a relief for the physical withdrawl to be gone. there are still times when i want to smoke but this is all habitual... and usually forget about it in a few seconds with less and less occcurances.

Besides that the only other problem i have noticed since i quit is that im very constipated hehe its actually not very funny to go over two weeks with little to no production in the bathroom. luckly the other day i took something for it .. and it worked . but i hope eventually this is something that will happen on its own ..

Besides i would just like to say to people thinking about quitting smoking or tobacco in general ... it is hard at first but you need to stick with it and really take a good look at what your doing to yourself... you actually paying a company about $2000.00/ Year to Kill yourself! such a horrible drug and the most addictive substance on this planet!

Well i just wanted to say that i am still smoke free and to encourage people to quit cold turkey method .. its the hardest way to quit but produces the highest success rate...

talk to everyone later!

Re: 23 Days :)

Congratulations Jim!!

You are doing great.

Don't worry about the problem with the constipation, it will get better, and you'll eventually go back to normal. Try to up your fiber intake in the meantime...oatmeal is good, whole grain breads, fruits, juices [prune j. is really good])

Thanks for letting us all know how you're doing and keep in touch.

Re: 23 Days :)

Congrats Jim and you're right on my tail. I'm 26 days smoke free cold turkey. Yes either cold turkey or the NRT has had huge success rates. Either way - as long as theirs a prayer there's a way LOL

Keep us posted and continue to cheer others on as well
