    Re: I quit smoking after 22 years

    4 months now! I had a really strong urge to smoke last night, but it went away within a minute. It was, however, followed by me smoking in a dream, that's the sixth or seventh dream I've had about smoking ever since I quit, and the good thing was that I knew it was all a dream immediately after waking up (instead of being angry and disappointed with myself for a minute or two until I realize).

    Keep going buddy. At 4 months, your lungs would be so much healthier. Also, your dopamine receptors would regenerate so much.

    Smokers tend to overload on dopamine, diminishing the number of dopamine receptors and end up needing more and more smokes to get the same dopamine high.

    They lose the ability to get dopamine/satisfaction from routine daily tasks.

    Being a smoker, i'm envious of your achievement. I've tried to quit many times, and the most i managed was to go 1 month before relapsing. But i will get there for sure.

    Today is the first day of this attempt to kick it. *homicidal maniac look in my eyes.* Kidding! I must say: I've mentally prepped for far worse craving than I experienced thus far.

    Re: I quit smoking after 22 years

    Nearly 4 weeks in now. After my post on dec 28th the craving hit me like a truck. Fuck! I didn't see that one coming. I nearly caved. Thought I'd give it till Jan 25th. If it'd still be that bad I'd restart. FFS: kicking the alcohol felt like a walk in the park in retrospect.
    Thank God the craving subdued significantly 5 days ago. So I'll hang on. Prepping mentally for the six week mark. The "see if I still like smoking?" demon...

    Will do, I just don't know where this is coming from. I had three smoke dreams last week, all in one night, and then another one a few days later, and I've been craving a ciggy ever since. Not all the time, obviously, but I'm just sitting here at my computer and it hits. Or I'm getting groceries and I see someone smoking (which is pretty rare nowadays) and I want one too. I know it won't help me and I'll just become addicted again, but damn if this isn't harsher than the first day of quitting! Third day was the absolute worst, I'm glad it doesn't feel like that, though!

    Youíre in the danger zone of knowing that you can quit. The initial motivation has subsided a little and the little devil on your shoulder is whispering in your ear that you can take or leave it at will.

    You canít. You know you canít but that wee bastard is a persistent fucker and this is why it seems more difficult at the moment than the initial break from smoking.

    As tower says this too will pass, and youíll be back stronger and with greater conviction than ever.

    Re: I quit smoking after 22 years

    As little TV and advertisments that pass through my 5 adblockers which is none, even I've seen those nicotine patches, that or a vape pen since the killer from smoking the is the burning of everything and little to do with the actual nicotine.
    Not that I know but would assume that waning off and dwindling the dosage that way down to 0 would probably have been a less bumpier road.

    Depends if the craving is for the nicotine or the actual action of holding literally anything in a bundle of paper that resembles a cig and inhaling the smoke would do the trick? Some random musings lol.

    Re: I quit smoking after 22 years

    Smoking isn't good for anything health wise and it's expensive as well. I've never been a smoker but in Australia a pack of cigs is $40-50! Talk about burning money.

    Good on you for quitting and in a few months you will start noticing that you will feel and look better for it as well as the increased savings.

    EDIT: Just noticed this was posted July last year. I am sure you have already noticed the benefits.

    Yessir! Even after four days I breathed easier, I woke up after one night without my lungs hurting, I could smell and taste better, everything!
