    The best thing about quitting smoking

    Is the extra 150.00 a month I have to put in my gun account!! Don't get me wrong, the whole not slowly killing myself thing is great as well but not much motivates me as well as the thought of new firepower. Now I have to decide what I want. Been kind of eyeing a new home defense pistol. Maybe a FNP9. Or perhaps a new 1911 with a accessory rail. Also need a shotgun...

    The money is nice. Health benefits are nice too. But the best thing about quitting smoking is not smelling like an ashtray anymore!

    That sounds like a great way to add to the gun fund. Have you already quit, or are you still working on it?

    Congrats and/or good luck

    Very few people ever truly "quit", but you try your best to go as long as you can not to smoke (which is hopefully for the rest of your life).

    Haven't smoked in 2 months but still get cravings so i guess I'm kind of still working on it.

    Two months is great! Keep up the good work, your life will be better(and longer) for it. Plus you'll have the extra money in your gun fund as well.

    34 years of not smoking. I still get the craving now and then. If you have gone 2 monthes then you have the willpower to resist the craving for the rest of your life. It gets to be a habit of saying no to yourself. The money saved is nice, the not smelling like an ashtrey is nice as well. For me the best thing was getting my sence of smell and taste back. I know that they arn't going to ever return in full, but it is sure nice to be able to smell flowers and taste what a meal really tastes like.

    Congratulations Rollo. I hope you stick with it. I quot a year and a half ago for health reasons. The hardest part for me was when I was around others who were smoking. Being alone wasn't so bad. If I knew then what I know now, I would have never done it cold turkey. That sucked and apparently it is unhealthy too.

    I have almost 36 years of not smoking and also get the craving every so often. Especially when finishing up a meal with a tall cold beer. They sort of go together. I often wonder how much I have saved in cigarettes alone, not counting the health benefits and no longer burning holes in my wife's clothes.

    10 years quit and counting. One of the best (not to mention hardest) things I ever did. I'll still treat myself to a brief second hand smoke though, occasionally, if I can get downwind of some smokers.

    You've probably all ready noticed how money stays in your wallet a LOT longer now.

    2 months is great, you're WAY over the hump....keep up the good fight!
