on Friday and I'm going nuts today at work! Anyone have any tips to get through this? I'm on the patch, chewing Nicorette gum and chewing on licorice sticks but I'm really "jittery". The only thing that is keeping me going right now is that I don't want to have suffered the last few days for nothing.

Somebody remind me why I'm doing this! Actually, I know why I'm doing this but still...

I'd say a longer life, better sense of taste and smell, healthy cardio system and low health insurance (oh, your socialized, scratch that)...seems pretty evident...

if that doesn't work, how about this before and after of smoking

Keep it up man, be the bigger man, stick around for the good of your kids, your friends and the good of music in general...you've got some great vision to share.

BH, man, you got this! The jittery sensation is coming from your brain. You control your brain. Tell your brain to stop with the nonsense!

Seriously though, just remind yourself that this difficult part is just temporary. Think of your kids, don't let 'em down. You got this!!!

It IS time for me. I know that and I'm not turning back now. It has been many years since I have tried. (BTW dB, those pictures are plastered all over our cigarette packs so I'm rather numb to them now. EVERYONE knows that smoking is bad for you).

The last time I quit, I quit for around 4 months. I started back up again shortly before my wife died of cancer. Thing is, her cancer wasn't from smoking so I had this "well if someone can get cancer without smoking then I might as well smoke" attitude.

I have the detirmination, it is just really difficult. I feel like I'm incomplete right now though.

Oh well, it has made me practice guitar a lot more. Even wrote a new song yesterday. Food already tastes better and I think I can even smell better.... no, I don't mean I don't "stink" (well there is that too) - lol, I mean I think my nose is working better - haha

Cheers for the support!

Congrats, BH.

Well done indeed.

I'm edging close to the "I gotta stop" thing. As Coolo mentioned, it's all in the mind.

Problem is, I lost my mind years ago.

This pictures are a little old. Now these images must occupy at least 1/2 of a pack. Up from 1/3 as shown.

Yes, I have a family that I love very much. 2008 is going to be a good year. I can feel it in my bones. Quitting this bad habit will only make it an even better year. I still have some other bad habits but I am going to have to deal with those later. For now, I'm just focusing on smoking.

Because it does nothing for you! Some say it calms them. That's only because of the last nicotine dosage causing the brain to go nuts for more! Some say it helps them think. BS! It limits oxygen to the brain. Even with all the 'live longer' stuff aside. You can live better without them. More energy, more available funds for gear! Greater stamina. Clearer mind. Whiter teath. Better sense of taste. No burn marks on fingers. No burn markes on everything else you come across. And of course you don't smell like an ash tray.

i definitely think better without smokes. when i smoke, i seem to lose the ability to get into a 'daydreaming' state. my thoughts don't get all 'slow wave' on me anymore, because i'm constantly tweaking myself every 15 minutes with this drug.

whenever i stop smoking, this is the first thing i notice. i find myself phasing out and just thinking about stuff again, but not in a 'hotwired' way like i do when i smoke.

BH, sunflower seeds. That is my one savior in cutting way back. I was a 2-1/2 to 3 pack a day smoker. I now can make a pack last 3 to 4 days. I'm on the last few packs in the house and then I'm done as well. And I already have my spitune for the studio. The one thing that will be good is not getting up every so often to go hack one in the garage. That breaks my concentration big time in the studio. I end up back tracking and going over things that I just spent an hour doing, and wasting another half an hour doing it.

You'll make it, I don't doubt it.

This was one of the reasons I quit. The rest of the band was suffering because of this exact reason. A tolerant bunch they are but I'm tired of putting them out because of a crappy habit.

Kudos on trying to drop a nasty habit :)

Here's another one for ya:

I actually didn't know about this little bit until recently, but apparently cigarette smoke contains HCN, which is hydrogen cyanide, or cyanide gas. Nasty nasty nasty stuff. And my sister wonders why I get so peeved when she smokes next to the front door. :/

I wrote this tonight as my inspiration.

You Ain’t My Friend

They roam together in a pack,
Pure evil in a white jacket,
Lined up row by row,
Sucking you in real slow,

Pictures on the front and back,
Always by my side,
Wakes me up each morning,
Tucks me in at night,

Not no more man,
You ain’t my friend,
Now that I can finally see,
You ain’t getting part of me,

Others come in different sizes,
600 chemicals in disguises,
Stronger than cousin willpower,
but not stronger than me!

Not no more man,
You ain’t my friend,
Now that I can finally see,
You ain’t getting part of me,

Solo
Bridge

Now that I can finally see,
You ain’t getting part of me,

All great stuff folks! I was off the stuff for two months and went back for a bit as the constant urge just got to me. I'll be back off again in a bit. I'll get it down.

Db, The only thing shaking is coming down off the Holidays. Sandy and I went out to Missouri to visit the children and grand-children. All are well. The theme throught the family this year is home. Both girls are on their second home. One built the other picked up a huge old Vicorian. Our place was a granite counter top, sink, and tile. Sandy got all excited and bought new faucets for all of the bathrooms too. Yikes! I hates plummin! Their in; I'm alive; the cabinates are still standing..nuff said. The studio was virtualy shut down for the holidays. Everybody doing holiday stuff (blinding glimps of the blatently obvious). Did one jingle for Frito-Lay, nuttin serious. Everybody is hot to get going again. Construction ended officially here yesterday. By the weekend I sould be able to bring in people again. What's going on in your world?

I love the patches -since I gave up smoking I've used one a day for about a couple of years now I guess.

Wonder if I oughta get off them yet?

One other thing I did was put all my money that I woulda spent on smokes in a jar. That jar gets real full real quick, and its awesome to buy something that you maybe thought you couldnt afford before

Great to hear it BH.

Last year I watched a local guy fall to the sickness (not literally), had part of his throat removed, and died in his 50s, due to smoking.

He told my missus, don't cut short your life, and time with your kids/grandkids.

She's got over 2 years off them now, and I have around 6 smoke free.

I feel your pain BeerHunter. I quit for a year and like an idiot took it up again. I am now a little over a year smoke free again though. I didn't do the patch or gum but after the first week or so it wasn't so bad. The addiction was not nearly as difficult as breaking the habit.
The second hardest time was the first time I had a beer without smokes. That was almost as tough as the first week.
The good news is that it does get better. I'm in better shape, I can fall asleep without the half an hour cough fest, and I'm not banished to the outdoors every 20 minutes or so. Oh yeah, I have more money now too!
I understand that you know all of this but I'm with you! Keep playing the guitar, thats the healthy outlet.

I quit using an amazing and very simple method. I suffered no nicotine withdrawals, in fact no bother at all! I just didn't feel like smoking from one moment to the next! The method is called EFT and there's someone out there who offers free (donate if you want) email consultations. Here is the website: www.info-santanyi.com/eftservice/eftforall.html

I hope it works for you as good as it did for me, best of luck!

The two year anniversary of the day I beat the Marlboro Man just passed recently. It does get better, but the cravings never completely go away. They just aren't the overpowering monster they once were.

IMHO, the gums and patches are more of a hindrance than a help. "Cold turkey" is the only way I've ever seen anyone, myself included, successfully quit altogether.

On the upside, after your senses of taste and smell get back to their old selves, you'll find that other peoples' smoke both smells and tastes like crap, lessening the desire to light up one of your own.

Best of luck.

So I quit smoking 8 days ago, and I gotta say it still sucks, lol. But I agree, breaking the habit is far worse than breaking the addiction. Drinking beer feels awkward, and going to sleep is really hard to do- did anyone else have that problem quitting?? Can't sleep at all really.

It is saving me money, time, and lung power though. I ain't lookin back.

Smoking is certainly a very killing habit. If you are a smoker you would realize the worth of my words. There are many options available in the market to quit smoking such as nicotine gums, inhalers and medicines like chantix, champix and zyban. Apart from these support measures what really is needed is the will power and self control. You more information about chantix at www.chantixhome.com

Hi frankmartin,
There are many health benefits acquired when one stops smoking. If people stop smoking, the toxic gases in the blood will drop to normal, within two or three weeks, lung function increases and in a few months coughing and shortness of breathe decrease. In a year’s time major diseases can be avoided. Log on to: smokingharms.com/ to get lots of information.

Support is the answer. Being with people who smoke around you all day (at work?), will most certainly hinder your efforts. Unfortunately, telling someone at work to stop smoking around you may be more hazardous to your health than smoking itself. While you are at home, hopefully your family and friends have the courtesy to curtail their habit till they're not around you. It's the smell man. (Take it from me.. I'm a habitual quitter)You may do well all day but then cousin Gomer comes over, lights up and all of a sudden the smell sends you off the edge and back to the pack.
Some support and at least a little cooperation from friends and family goes a long way.

There are a lot of problems associated with smoking which people face like problem with respiratory system, heart and many more. Chantix helps you to get over this smoking habit and before you can make up your mind about using it, you can check the information related on www.chantixhome.com/ It works on the body by giving you the same feel good effect and hence reduces the craving for nicotine. Best luck to all those who want to give up smoking.

I only smoked for 2 years. The last year I was smoking a pack a day but still a relatively small amount of time compared to most I know that have smoked. I still enjoy smoking, but I don't regret quitting because I control when I have a cigarette. I have one once a month or less...but I love that one cigarette. I hated having an addiction bossing me around...

I did it cold turkey and was working 65 hours in 7 day weeks as remote desktop support for h&r block during tax season at the time...I was a cranky butthole. But I built a nice studio with the spoils. Staying busy was the key for me.

this was the worst experience of my entire life - to stop smoking.

the only reason i dont start again is because i never want to go through that again.

still after 6 years there is the feeling for it left, sometimes in summer holidays i smoke the tobacco from our own farmland which is not treated with chemicals and all the other stuff they put into cigarettes.

it can take a while until you feel successful, take it day by day. and slowly time goes by and you suddenly notice you managed the craving!

good luck!

Quiet a few...for the winter I brewed up a couple cases of a good Stout and some Brown Ale, but typically it's lighter stuff, pale ales, pilsners and such...

Right now I have 6 cases of brown, stout, pils and am bottling some cream ale on Saturday...Winter is here, it's harder to clean out equipment without the use of garden hoses and such, so I try to brew a ton in the fall to tide me over for the winter...so the cream will be my last batch of beer until spring...nothing but a couple batches of wine until then.

The Pilsner I brewed tastes a lot like Grolsch, it's pretty darn good...and at about $12 a case, it's about half the price of buying it from the liquor store.

New labeling laws are coming in Canada

www.theprovince.com/healt...in?size=620x400

[quote]OTTAWA — New anti-smoking warnings on cigarette packs, to be announced by the federal government Thursday, will feature images of an iconic Canadian cancer victim and cover a full three-quarters of the packages’ surface, Postmedia News has learned.

The significant increase in the size of the often-stark ads comes after opposition MPs on the House of Commons health committee recently threw their weight behind a long-standing movement to bump up the mandatory ads from the current level of half the packs’ surface panel.

Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq was to unveil the new ads, some of which will feature pictures of Barb Tarbox, who died in 2003 of cancer but who became famous before her death for her high-profile crusade to persuade young people to not smoke.

Aglukkaq’s announcement is timed to encourage smokers to make a new year’s resolution to kick the habit, an official said.

The new ads also will feature a toll-free number for a national helpline for smokers and a website for more information.

Images of Tarbox at a palliative care facility have already been shortlisted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use on its new cigarette-package warnings. A final decision on using her image in the United States will be made in 2011.

Changes to the Canadian warnings on cigarette packs have long been advocated by anti-smoking activists. “Size is extremely important to the effectiveness” of the ads, Rob Cunningham of the Canadian Cancer Society warned recently. “The larger the size, the greater the impact.”

Health Canada’s own extensive surveys, on which it has spent about $3.6 million so far, concluded the old graphic warnings were becoming less effective and larger images were needed. The research also concluded that using images of Tarbox would be effective.

Mandatory warnings that cover 50 per cent of the surface of cigarette packs have been law in Canada since 2001.

For years, the government has planned to increase the size of warnings and was expected to unveil its plans in early 2010. When it delayed, opposition critics and others accused Ottawa of caving in to the tobacco industry, which has argued the government’s efforts would be better spent on fighting contraband tobacco than on retooling package warnings.

The tobacco industry’s “tactics are delay, distract and distort,” Dr. Robert Strang, chief public health officer for Nova Scotia, told the health committee earlier this month.

In August, Health Canada told provincial health officials there wouldn’t be immediate action on new ads.

The following month, Aglukkaq repeated that message to provincial health ministers and added it was important to have a social media strategy to reach young people.

I thought size didn't matter? haha.

That is crazy, you mean your cig packs up there are half filled with reason to not use the product? That's just weird...

Also, the size of ads doesn't matter half as much as the location of it...

Just did some quick math...

When I quit, smokes were about $8/pack * 365 days in a year is $2,920. So in 3 years I have saved $8,760!!! Now then the question is, where did the money go?

Well I am not sure where the money went for you, but it was probably one of the best things you have done is my guess. I used to smoke 20 cigarettes a day and at the time I enjoyed it greatly (14 years ago now).

But being on the wrong side of my 30's now I am so glad I did it as I think it would be less pleasant as time goes on in terms of energy levels.

Good on you, though I will add I still occasionally dream I have started again, lol.

cheers
