Michael J Beverage, I've got a bone to pick with you.

How are you all doing with this? I've smoked for around 8 years now, and I know that I have to quit. I smell like poo poo today from smoking at the bar last night. Michigan is passing legislature to ban smoking from bars and restaurants.

Right about now is when I would be stepping outside for a smoke break here at work. I'm out of cigarettes from last night. I'm in.

5 weeks and 4 days smoke free for me, with no desire to go back. The first 4 days were very loving hard, but it was mostly a matter of not driving to the gas station to get a pack. I don't have any cravings while driving or being at the bar anymore. Now I just wish those pesky smokers would go away! Real talk though cigarettes smell like poo poo, I can't believe I smelled like that for 8 years of my life and didn't notice. I'm actually pretty excited about Michigan's smoking ban coming into effect in a few months, because I can't stand the smell anymore.

I've been smoking a pack to a pack and a half a day for about 15 years. Today's my first day without a cigarette. gently caress. At the moment it's just a matter of crazy will power and distracting myself with mindless entertainment, even though my entire body is tense and I can't walk anywhere without pacing around.


Stick it out. The next few days aren't going to be any easier. It's so worth it though.

Checking in to say that I am 8 months smoke-free via cold turkey as of August 12th. I've gained a bit of weight since then, but I honestly have no desire to smoke cigarettes at all anymore, and quite frankly feel like I never smoked in the first place. Hang in there guys, you can do it.

I missed it by a few days, but I am proud to say that I haven't touched a cigarette in 1 year and 3 days now. I hope that you all can find the resolve to stay quit
