Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Hay there quit buddy,

We have made it 75 days, what a mile stone! How are things going with your quit? I am feeling really good and strong. I can honestly say I am a non-smoker.

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Thank you Jean,

Your right,this is the best thing I have done for myself,it has its moments but they pass.

The chantix has helped,but I only take half a pill in the morning and the other half at night.GP won't increase dose ,I quess the chantix can mess with insulin level and sinse I'v been on steroids my levels are high.So during parts of the day I feel I'm doing it Cold Turkey.

But the strong survive.It has been very well worth stopping!!!

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Hi Nuff, Just to let you know, I am trying to take a half a blue a day now, so far so good. Don't worry I know people who only took it a week for the nicotine and they are doing fine. It is definitely mind of matter and you sound upbeat to me that is half the battle.

Keep me updated and I will do the same.

Jean

Nuffs,

Thank you and congratulations on your quit. You are doing great. I did quit cold turkey, so I feel for you when your Chantix is wearing "thin". Keep up the good work, you are a non-smoker now!

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Jean,

Thanks to you too. I rarely have cravings anymore, at most once per day. I didn't think it would be going this good this soon. Of course, having the Dr. put me on antidepressants due to post-op depression helps greatly.

Tonight to get out of the house for a little while, my DH and I went to the local bar/casino. It was quite smoky in there and only once did I think I would like to have one. Then the thought passed and the longer I sat there the more I was irritated by the smell. The second good thing, went in with $20 and went home with $60. I only gamble 2 or 3 times per year, only play the nickle machines and never spend more than $20, so it was fun to do so well (on both).

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

BWITHT (what does that stand for??)

I love casinos, only slots, just love the excitment there. Sixty bucks... good for you I told myself I would never become on of those reformed smokers but I am with you on the smell, but for some reason I still like it when someone first lights up then after that forget it.

Hope you have a wonderful non smoking day.

Jean

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Congratulations to both of you!! That's a wonderful accomplishment!

I can't wait until I can say the same or better yet, not know how many days it's been because I don't even think about smoking anymore!

Congrats on your casino winnings, too! Looks like you are on a winning streak all around!

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Judy,

Hi and Thank you. I have had a bit of a struggle to get here. I had to quit cold turkey due to back surgery. I got much needed support and encouragement from the wonderful members here.

Congratulations on your quit. You are well on your way. This is me cheering you on. And remember, if you need support, answers or a vent, this is the greatest place to turn!

Re: Jeanusa, Yeah, 75 days

Jean,

Sorry for the delay, I have been really busy with my grandson. He just had his 2nd birthday and he and his mom have stayed over the last couple days due to 100 degree weather and only a small window ac in their apt. We have central air. I don't know how I could make it without ac, since I am cooped up in the house most of the time. With all the hustle and bustle I haven't even thought about lighting up!

Tonight my DH came and laid on the bed for a short time while I was watching TV (I don't have to wear the brace if I am laying in bed). I had to cover my nose because he had just smoked and I couldn't stand the smell of his breath. I think he got the hint because he didn't stay long. He is sleeping in the guest room while I am recovering so I don't have to smell smoke breath often.

I work in a branch of law enforcement and one of my co-supervisors gave me the nickname b_tch with t_ts. It is pretty fitting for me! Inmates find me very firm, fair and consistant. Staff (especially male) do not care that I am that way with them also.

Have a good week and I look forward to our next milestone.

PS: I had my last smoke almost exactly the same time as you (about 1 1/2 hour later taking time zones into consideration). We really are quit buddies!
