  • Maybe hypnosis would work for a motivated quitter?

  • Ellis2,

    Thanks for the tip, that worked for my sister for about two months, then she started again. Frankly, I don't think she was all that motivated to stay quit.

    I've never tried it but I'm very happy to report that I am on Day 5 without a cigarette and doing well!

  • Good luck. I quit 20 years ago after smoking 30 years and many quitting failures. After I went a full day without a cigarette I told myself I had no excuse. If I could do it yesterday I could do it today. You will make it also.

    Thank you! Knowing that there is so much support out there really helps :-)
  • Wild cherry life savers and Big Red chewing gum. 28 years later still quit. Still use the life savers regularly, gum every now and then!

  • Thanks, baseballman! When I came into work on my quit day, Rachael McKee surprised me with a giant bag of Life Savers, Dum Dums, Pez (with refills!) and Jolly Ranchers :-) It's been a week and I still have some! 28 years, congrats! :-)
