    Congrats Rollo, keep on going my friend. I quit Feb 27, 2009 cold turkey, just put them down. I was tired of every winter coming down with Brochitus? and then Brochial? Pneumonia (to tired to look up the spelling, my apologies). My first free year of them, I feel dang good about that.

    As you said also, I've been able to buy a lot more ammo this year. Whenever the wife decides to stop (her choice), I'll be sitting good.

    I tried and tried again to quit during my academy but was unsucessful. Then one day about a year ago I smoked the last Marlboro in the pack and spent a couple days on vacation with my family, who I did not smoke around nor were they aware that I had ever smoked. After those couple days of no smoking I never had an urge or craving again and still haven't had one to this day.

    I just started working on my savings account. I will say that chantix has helped alot, I am down from 1 to 1 1/2 packs a day to 3-6 cig a day and 0 snuff. Now to beat those last few cigs in the dirt. If you have almost 0 will power as I do then chantix is the way to go

    Chantix made quitting easier for me as well. I do have to say coming off the Chantix was harder than the cigs mentally and physically. I do encourage you to ween yourself as directed. If you have any questions about the side effect I had coming off feel free to pm.

    Congrats! I never smoked, but my wife has quit numerous times and has always gone back. What I cannot comprehend is how she could have quit through TWO pregnancies and still ended up going back.

    Glad to hear that you're going to live longer and are saving some cash too! Congratulations again on a HUGE accomlishment!!

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    Every time I try, some rocket scientist manager makes some colossal policy change or worse yet, "I have an idea...."

    I was down to 5 cigs a day from 17 fall of last year (going good for 3 months), then the collective "Red Hats" came up with a plan to work in another project on weekends. Whammo, back to 17 & up.

    I have 2 vices, Cigs & Coffee. Take away either, somebody is gonna get hurt. In my career, I am gonna die of black lung if I smoke or not. $120 a month for me. I'm OK with that.

    Good luck!

    After I quit smoking, I used a sure-fire method (for me) of fighting the craving for a cigarette:

    I'd take a nice, deep, full lungful of air. Reminded myself of how satisfying it was to feel that I really got enough oxygen.

    That stopped the interest in a cigarette every time. That's what had prompted me to quit - the feeling that no matter how big a breath I took, I still didn't feel like I was getting the oxygen my body was asking for.

    I used nictoene gum. I decided to quit when I had about 5 smokes left in a pack. I walked into walkgreens, bought a months supply of the gum, smoked the last of the 5 before I went to bed and then in the morning started on the gum. I used the gum for about a month and then switched to regular sugar free gum. It has worked well so far.
