I have to share a good news with you great folks, I have stop smoking...


Recommended Posts

Benny, I wish you well. I quit cold turkey back in 1977 and haven't had one since. It probably took seven years before I really could say that the urge to smoke ceased to be a constant threat. Take it one day at a time, and overcome each desire to smoke one at a time. As a heavy smoker it takes a complete new mindset to win. You have to set in your mind that your really want to stop.

Good luck, you can do it. You have already seen a benefit worth achieving, more disposable income!

Way to go Benny, and I like others have said, you have come up with a great plan! And yes, all that money saved is a very nice benefit, as well as your improved health.

Congratulations Benny!  It can't be easy giving up on 2 packs a day.  I quit for good a few years ago.  I smoked up to the age of about 30, and am now 42.  It was a long process for me.  I kind of slowed down, and limited when and where I smoked, then eventually stopped completely.  With the price of tobacco in Australia, I could not imagine still spending all that money.

 

Your lungs, heart, brain etc.... and your pocket will be all the better for it.

Congratulations Bennie!

 

I quit in 1995. Took six weeks to break the physical addiction. Two years to fully conquer the urge and now I can not stand to be around it. I smoked for 30 years. Do not give up!

Here is to a better health and wealth Benny.

Good luck to you and enjoy your new start in life.

Don't be like Mark Twain who said, "giving up smoking is easy, I've done it hundreds of times !"

Congrats Benny and excellent news.  Your heart and lungs thank you as well.  Great idea concerning the money. A FS rig can always be improved. The new MSFS 2020 is another item you can spend money on. So many simulators and all looking to pull money their way.    I have never smoked but I hear from people who have found they have more time on there hands.

Well done Benny, but do not become complacent. Like all drugs, it's never 100% out of your system. Even after 20 years off smokes sometimes after a nice meal or after having a couple of drinks I'll think to myself, just one......Just keep the money being saved to the forefront of your mind.  Also imagine if you had Australian prices which I think are up to around AUD$35 - $40 (CAD$31) for a pack of 30's...and I have a married couple who both smoke at least one pack per day each and more on weekends!!!!

Congratulations Benny!! 

 

It has been 10+yrs for me since I quit. After trying all the prescription drug programs and everything else, I came to realize I wasn't able to do it alone, so I turned to my higher power and prayed and prayed and before long I was finding it hard to even put a cigarette in my mouth without feeling sick. I did also use a herbal nerve relaxing product (Valerian root, hops, passion flower) to help through the first few weeks of withdrawals. I can report that for me it is 100% removed out of my system, no cravings ever, even the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach now. I have no issues sitting in a room of smokers other than to look forward to eventually getting to some fresh air lol....so don't believe those that tell you different. It does not need to be a forever fight. :) :)

I certainly hope you will succeed Benny - I am sure you will. For me, however, I would not have made it to 86 without a good cigar and a stiff drink every day!     :lol:
