Finally quit smoking after 1 pack/day for 10 years. It will be 3 weeks tomorrow since I quit cold turkey. Really stoked to be saying this, and wasn't sure I would ever be able to.
It feels really good. I can already breathe better, and my taste buds are starting to get their senses back.
I did get some nicorrete gum just in case I needed it, but so far have not touched it.
For anybody who is considering quitting smoking, it really is true that once you are ready and willing to quit, it isn't really that bad. Sure, I get urges all the time, and probably will till the day I take my dirt nap. The urges have become less frequent and less gnarly.
I've come this far, no way in hell am I picking up another cig. Will be tough though next time I'm in Vegas.
Thanks for reading.
