Shuke, are you working while trying to quit? If it helps, I took off Friday (my quit day) so I didn't annoy too many people. By Monday I was still a little edgy, but not bad.

At work, but completely unproductive. Can't concetrate.
give me a call if you need anything. :confused:
:hophead:

just an FYI:

"Urea is used as a flavorant In the manufacture of cigarettes."

I am at the 2 hour mark. I quit for 2 1/2 years. Then I went to VietNam and China back in Jan. and THEY hooked me again. I smoked everyday for 3 weeks while I was there.I hope I can kick it again.....but just as I type this all a can think about is having a smoke. I am just going to eat a candy bar every time I want to smoke. I should hit 300 pounds in about a week!

do 25 pushups instead of the candy bar. the endorphins will help.

I think most smokers know exactly how bad smoking is and have heard all the crap that's in them.

You could have told me that cigarettes also contain chopped up puppies, sludge from the Hudson river and Rosie O'donnell's toe nails and it would still be hard to quit.

I hope cold turkey works for Shuke and anyone else that tries. It didn't for me, so I use Chantix. I hate sounding like a Chantix spammer :) , but I needed extra help and that worked so far.

It's been 4 weeks and 5 days.

The best way to make sure you don't feel like this again is to quit for good this time. It's worth the effort. :(

I don't know if I can do this. I have some Nicorette with me but I'm afraid to use it.

Seriously, take a walk. Do something to take your mind off smoking. You've made it to this point, so if you chew the nicorette, you'll be back here in another day. The physical withdrawal should be over in another day.

Shuke, you need to get out and do something. May I suggest finding Furley and beating the crap out of him and his alleged iron will? You'll feel much better and get in some exercise!

It was my 4th serious attempt where I actually succeeded. I'm still mad at myself for putting myself through the hell of withdrawal the first 3 times and not quitting. Again, it's not easy but it's worth it.

43rd hour mark. I am very much on edge. I am doing this cold turkey(which is how I quit last time for 2-1/2 years) but it seems more difficult this time! I need a :pokey: but all it will do is make me want to smoke even more!

Thinking of starting up again so I can take Chantix.

That first week of Chantix, when you can smoke as much as you want, I think I smoked more than I ever smoked before.Because, as Chantix builds up in your system, smoking has less and less of an effect.By day 6, smoking a cigarette was basically a useless exercise. Which made it easy to just lay it down on day 7.

:popcorn:
Would Chantix have as good of an effect if I started it today? What if I started chewing Nicorette and taking chantix, then stopped the nicorette in a week?I was just at the store, and I almost punched a 70 year old woman in the face, because I thought she was taking up too much of the aisle.

Well, without getting too deep (which I can't, it's not my field). The Chantix will fill some of the need and you are not going to be that irritable. You'll still be edgy as I was with the Chantix. During first few days of my quit week, I managed to piss of the secretary, my SO avoided me and I managed to get a time out from FBG.

I thought about smoking every minute that wasn't occupied by something that needed my immediate attention. Don't think Chantix is the cure all; it'll just make it a little easier.

Like I said before, I couldn't quit cold turkey. I guess I wasn't has manly as Furley :goodposting:, so I needed help.

4 Weeks 7 Days

I just popped some Nicorette. I'm weak. I was hyperventilating, couldn't see straight, have not gotten anything done at work the past two days because I have the attention span of Furley, and ate so much for lunch I felt sick.

I got a script for Chantix from my doctor this morning.

I quit about 15 months ago, and I still have the urge to do this from time to time.GL with the Chantix. Though you are a good part of the way through the physical withdrawal period already, so consider that before lighting up.

Serious question about the Chantix.

I've been reading up on it, and in all the studies the users smoked for the first week while on Chantix. Does this play a part in the drug's success? Does it help with the psychological addiction by making smoking less pleasurable?

Just curious if I start Chantix today do I have a better chance of being a permanent non-smoker by smoking for just one more week?

Or is that the addiction talking, trying to justify further use?

So far:

Tues: no nicotine

Wed: no nicotine

Thur: 3 pieces of 2mg Nicorette

Fri: 1 piece of 2mg Nicorette

I think it does help to smoke that first week. Because, after a few days, there really is no longer an "enjoyment" angle on smoking, your only really doing it out of habit. And then its like, well, thats dumb, and then you stop.FYI, my withdrawl was basically nonexistant with Chantix. Must not be the same for everyone.Day 21 for me.
