    I smoked off and on for 23 years until I had a bad chest xray two years ago. When I was shown a 13 mm spot on my right lung, I quit that moment. The following week, after having a CT scan, there was nothing.

    Congrats A.D., Broken Record, and welcome to the exclusive second chance club :)

    Nicotine addiction is 99% psycholgical. It's one of the easiest habits to quit if you put yourself in the right mind frame.

    I smoked a pack a day for 15 years. I was a confirmed smoker. All my friends said, "he's one guy who will never quit".

    I tried Zyban, the poatch, cold turkey...I failed miserably. Then I read a book , The "easy way to quit smoking" by Allen Carr. It attacks the psychology of your addiction.

    I have been smoke free for one year. I have no cravings. I have no desire. It's been easy.

    The physical addiction of nicotine is a joke. The physical withdsrawal is a mild empty feeling in the pit of your stomach which lasts for 2-3 days. It's so light you're barely cognisant of it. After that there is no physical withdrawal. It's all in your head.

    Youn need to do 2 things:

    1. Resolve to your self that you will NEVER use nicotine again. Do not leave your mind open even a crack.

    2. CELEBRATE. Do not think of it as hard or difficult and do not be intimidated by it.

    It's ALL IN YOUR HEAD. Read that book.

    Thanks to everyone for the support and congratulations. I'm on day 10 now and I'm already noticing more energy, + I'm able to taste and smell things better. Craves are getting less. Everything is lookin' good. I always thought quitting would be impossible, but with a little resolve (not to mention having the sh*t scrared out of me with the cancer thing) it hasn't been too bad.
