Congratulations and stick with it!  I can't begin to tell you what it's like to run out of breath just walking from the house to the garage.  I quit cold turkey about a year and a half ago, but it was too late.  COPD big time.  If you need more help or encouragement, feel free to PM me.

Congrats to all for quitting i can't remember exactly when I quit cigs-maybe 10 years? I was on the smokeless for a while which was twice as hard to quit IMO. Smoked a pipe too got rid of all them.

I quit 25 years ago after smoking for over 25 years and I have never looked back. I still smell a cigarette and it smells good but am not tempted to go back

Congrats man -

Wish I could say that!

It's been 2 1/2 years for me, and I still love the smell of a cigarette.

Smoked for 46 years----averaged 2 packs per day.

Went to Vietnam smoking 1/2 pack per day. Came back smoking 3 packs.

Free in C-rations----$1.50 per carton at PX.

I was one of those that quit smoking when I moved out of my parents house.  My father still smokes like a chimney.  I ask him to quit and he replies 'anyone can quit smoking it takes a real man to face death'. I remind him his granddaughter would like him to be around to see her get married.  Sad really.

Very hard for all those involved.
