Not going to read all six pages to see what people have said. 

I quit in 2001 cold turkey as a retirement gift to my self. I kept craving for many years. What helped me was to get my mind on some thing else, a problem to solve or a project I would like to start and do. Planning that would get my mind off wanting a smoke. The cravings finally ended in 2006 has been pleasant since then


Just never quit quiting.

All best wishes for you Jesse, I've been off here for Saturnalia and am just catching up. Just being able to taste and smell the good things at Christmas will be a reward for you.

The anxiety and just in your head if you are meaning it's coming from quitting. You are over it now just keep going and before you know it you won't even miss them and think they stink.

It takes a while to break a habit, even though the chemical dependance may be over your body still is used to holding the cigarette and dealing with stress through those actions and that is still a habit but given time even those will diminish.


After my divorce I was in Fla visiting my cousin.  We went to a really nice restaurant in Miami on the water front.  This really really good looking lady came in and both of us were eyeing her.  Then she pulled out a cigarette and lite it.  The two of turned to each other and in perfect timing we said "Naaahhh!" and didn't pay a bit of attention to her after that.  Before you know it you will be there.  Just stay strong! :thumbs:
