    I have never smoked a cigarette but I think by this time the chemical addiction is gone and now it's just the mental aspect of going through the motions.Stick with it,your body will thank you.

    It takes a while before you forget. Keep going and don't smoke.
    Eat some celery, or bark, or kiss your girlfriend.
    Don't smoke!

    Explain this to me, maybe in PM for language. I doubt I'm getting it right... I'd like to.

    My wife stopped smoking 9 years ago and she STILL craves one if she's around someone who's smoking the brand she used to smoke. The biggest downfall of her quitting is that she put on weight FAST...but she hasn't ever given into the cravings. She just has to work hard with her elliptical and treadmill or walk around the neighborhood when the weather is decent.

    Another great thing you could do is look at your checking account often to notice all the money you're saving.

    Sorry, just keep on not smoking. The more you do that, the better things will be.

    It's what happens when you don't give a f**k so much that they implode into a black hole of f**ks not given that actually sucks in the f**ks that others are trying to give. . .

    Nah, seriously its just my obscure twisted way of saying don't let stuff get to you.

    I'm right with you - 1 month now.
    I use those e-cig things still, so I have no desire to smoke. I still catch myself THINKING I need to light up, but I grab my ecig thing and that urge is gone. This is the longest I've quit in 30 years. 1 day at a time. There's other psycological tricks you can play with your mind to stay on track as well.
