LOL Down to only one a day which was better then before when I was going through atleast a tin a day. I just finished my last tin today and I am not going to buy another one. I am going to do this.

You can do this. I went "cold turkey" in November and only had two relapses before the New Year. Haven't had any since, and just thinking about having chew or smoking makes me actually gag a little bit. I still have a dream once or twice a month where I am chewing or smoking again, but waking up with guilt is keeping me on track.

Honestly, when things were hard and I was "fiendin'" for SOMETHING I would pray and ride it out. I want to believe that my love for self and family is stronger than a nicotine addiction. I am now addicted to Trident. Quitting tobacco gave me the confidence to quit meat and auto-eroticism.

Keep going strong.

On the Island or Victoria, depending on the date
I was talking to the old man today, he sounded very positive about quitting, which is not something I recall from previous attempts, he reckons it feels right this time. I don't know if his brain has picked up on the emphysema on a subconscious level or what, but he's not fighting it this time.

I'm going to record the noise my room mate makes when he's "snoring". At first I thought it was because he was sick, then I remembered he smokes, drinks, plays video games all day and is generally unhealthy. His exhalation sounds labored almost to the point of being forced out. Quite appalling.

I cleaned the messages out of our answering machine this past weekend, except for the one that "Thomas" left for me when he was in the hospital. In the message, he assured me he was fine, that everything was OK, etc. In a week, he was dead.

All my other friends his age (he's significantly older than me) are still alive. His wife is still alive. All of his friends are still alive. The difference between all of them and him? He was addicted to cigarettes.

Stop using tobacco; live longer, live better.

Finished the pack this morning and felt like a real piece of shit.

I think quitting is a great idea especially after reading some of this thread.

Day 1 starts now @ 0939
I know the feeling man. The end of this month will mark two months of no tobacco for me, and I have to say that its the greatest feeling. Not waking up feeling like death, being able to run for more than 10 minutes without wheezing, and not having that foul smell that turns people off from you is just awesome. Its hard, but the military taught you to be made of harder stuff than that. Kick the pack and feel good knowing that you'll have that much more room in your pockets for useful stuff!
