10 years 3 months here. It's a dirty habit. Keep at it. It takes work but everything that's worthwhile does.

I remember the day and the time within about an hour.

September 9 2003 at approximately 7 am was the last cigarette I smoked. Good for you. It isn't an easy thing to do but you'll be glad you did it.

i've quit for at least a month no less than two dozen times. i think what is working for me this time more than anything is just coming to terms with the fact that never ever smoking a cigarette ever again means that i will have occasional cravings for one for the rest of my entire life and it will suck and i'll have to fight and win that battle every time until the day i die. welcome to addiction, GDMK. it never goes away. it gets easier and the cravings get more mild and less frequent but they never ever completely go away. sucks, but it's reality.

just kind of accepting that aspect of the addiction has helped me. not sure why that has made such a difference but it has.

for anyone else that has quit, congratulations on every victory you've had over your cravings. for those that are trying to stop but struggling, congratulations on every victory you've had over your cravings.

Yeah, even a year later at least once a week I just randomly stop and go "GODDAMN IT I WANT A CIGARETTE!"

I'm usually fine, I can hang out with my dad while he smokes without a problem. Just sometimes randomly my chest tightens, my gums tingle, and my teeth hurt and for about 3 minutes I REALLY want a smoke.

Chantix got me to quit. You are supposed to take it for a couple of months, but I only took it for two week. Those two weeks were so bad though that I didn't go back to smoking because I didn't want want to go through that for nothing.
