2 1/2 years without a cigarette, today

I can’t say I miss them. I’ve substituted other activities to break up the monotony of life.

Way to go, chordy. I’m proud of you. It’s been fourteen months since I drank. That’s an accomplishment, for me.

I have been putting a lot of thought into quitting. I don’t want to die from smoking. I watched my dad die from lung cancer. Very scary

Well done both of you.

Switch to vaping e-cigarettes. That’s what I did.

Congratulations @crimby !

I did it gradually. I cut it down to 5 a day, then 3, then 2, 1, 1/2, and finally a couple of puffs a day. I did this over a period of more than a year. It worked well because by the time I was down to a couple of puffs a day, it was no big deal to quit. I made no deadlines, just narrowed it down when I felt like it. No pressure, no drama.

I was a 2 pack a day chain smoker years ago.
I quit cold turkey and never went back!
It’s possible to successfully quit cigarettes and vaping.
Don’t give up people!

Maybe you could give that knowledge to some of the other people on this site who are trying to quit smoking. I know Jukebox is.

That’s a great achievement Chordy, quitting isn’t easy to do. I’ve tried to quit a few times in the past but only managed about a month, and it was sheer purgatory, I couldn’t stop thinking about smoking.
