    So this thread encouraged me to give it another shot at quitting. Wednesday I was down to one cigarette. Decided not to buy another pack. I lit that cigarette twice on Wednesday and finished it Thursday morning. Have not gone and bought another pack. And have not had another cigarette. I’m feeling pretty good man. I can’t say I won’t smoke another if one is around me and I have a beer in my hand. But I’m definitely not going back to being a regular smoker! This is the first time I’ve actually enjoyed not smoking and looking forward to being healthier. Plus it is going to save me 30 to 40 bucks a week. I am supplementing my nicotine habit with ZYN nicotine pouches. No tobacco.

    I’m actually excited about not being a smoker. Since I’m out on Workmen’s Comp. it was a good time to quit. I used to quit over a weekend and then be back at it Monday morning because of work. It’s good to get this out of my system before going back to work, hopefully my habit is diminished and I will have less of that strong desire to put a cigarette in my mouth. The key for me has been staying busy with something. Whether I’m in the garage tinkering with my truck or even just surfing Tundras.Com.

    You motivated me Travis! Thanks bro

    This is the conclusion I came to. Even my father-in-law told my wife that, he will quit when he’s ready. He’s a smart man. Finally I think I just had enough. It was getting hard to breathe, I was having shortness of breath fairly easily. Now I just gotta watch my weight.

    Yeah, I think I just got disgusted with myself that something could have that big of a hold on me. I definitely pride myself on being my own person and having common sense with most aspects in my life. (Other than being addicted to mods) Every time I would light up a cigarette lately it just didn’t feel right anymore. And very recently the shortness of breath. Fuck that! I’d like to be around a while.

    There is always the Graveyarder BS thread -> https://www.tundras.com/threads/graveyarders-bs-thread.12312/unread It has helped me on long slow nights. Makes the time go by.

    The big thing to remember is that all it takes to quit is the desire to quit. If you want to, you will. You might slip up, you might have a bad day, but if the desire is there you will get it done. Don't view those days as setbacks. They are PROGRESS. You are moving in the right direction, and as long as you are making progress you will win this fight!

    Good luck Sean. I wish you the best.

    I could never quit smoking when I was a drinker. It was just too much of a trigger. I’ve been sober for 450 days now and I rarely ever crave a cigarette. Yes, I vape. But I’d rather be a vapor than a smoker.

    Maybe one of the coolest threads on the forum. People making big positive changes in their own lives and inspiring others to do the same.

    When I was training for college football during the off-season, it always helped to train with someone to help hold myself accountable. Not only should I follow through for myself, but others were counting on me as well.

    I think when I noticed how bad my clothes smelled is when I was over the hump.
