In 3 months Dec 12 my Wife and I will be celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary.

That is easier than, as of today Sept 4, 1am I will be Smoke Free 1 year. I sure hope it gets easier because the cravings come and go as if I was still smoking, I guess a 55 year habit is hard to brake, sometimes I pretend to take a puff, it seems to trick the brain for a while.

Thanks for your help a year ago.

rayinmo, A few years ago I stopped using the shirt pocket because when I tried to quit before the hand went to it way too often. but I lost that battle, and all the ones before that.
Thanks.

Congratulations Tom. I'm ecstatically happy for you.

I quit several years ago after smoking for about as long as you without any cravings afterward. The only problem I had to overcome was the involuntary muscular motion of my right hand reaching for my left shirt pocket. It probably took about 6 months for that action to subside.

In time, your cravings will end. So, don't ever cave in to taking a real puff.

Congratulations! I quit in 1997 and the cravings seem like they stuck around for several years. Eventually you begin to notice that nicotine on others actually starts to stink instead of smell good. That's when you know you really have it made!

TnT - "Eventually you begin to notice that nicotine on others" Second hand smoke still smells good but stale smoke on other people, their house, car or entrance to stores STINKS. Never ever thought I would say that.
Thanks.

Congrats.....besides being great for your health and longevity...just think of all those BIG $$$$$$ that will be staying in your pocket or spent on something worthwhile ,instead of going to some big tabacky company.

Graybeard - When I started smoking a pack of 25 was 41 cents a pack of tobacco was 25 and 35 cents.
Now a pack of 25 cigarettes is $9.50. when I was working I went through 2 to 21/2 cartons a week, that would be big bucks now. I ended up smoking 1 bag @$15.00 (200) of native cigs a week.
Thanks.
