My New Years Resolution - I'm going to quit smoking

A little background information;

I've been smoking for about a year. I smoke about a pack a day, maybe a little less. I've noticed that since I've started smoking, I get sick easier, I have a hell of a lot less cash laying around, not to mention I hate smelling like smoke, (all my shit smelling like smoke, etc).

I don't want to do the e-vape thing. But quitting cold turkey scares me a little.

Any advice for me? Words of encouragment? I'm all ears, and would appreciate some postive support.

Thanks,
Big Smoke

On a side note.....

In 94 days I have saved almost $700 (if not more) from not buying 2 cans of chew a day.

Good for you! I quit several years ago, and I don't miss it (or the smell and expense) one bit.

You'll just have to change you name to Big Quitter instead!

I smoked a pack and a half a day for 17 years and Iv'e made it 23 days now with out one. Question for anyone who has quit in the past: did you get aweful gas a few weeks after? I could clear an indoor stadium with these farts. They are terrible.

It's how the rest of the world knows you're staying sober. If you rip one and it doesn't kill at least one person in the room they know you've fallen off the wagon.

I won't deny that I chewed a lot - but it was only 7-8 dips a can for me (Skoal Longcut Wintergreen). But yes, most of the day was spent with a dip in my mouth.

But, now I'm standing at 114 days with no chew & saving over $900.

Ahh, you took big dips.

Even at my heaviest dipping, a can would last me almost a week, but I take small dips.

It's crazy to look back and think how much you used to do something. I never thought that I used to smoke that much. But thinking back...from the period of 18-20...I was smoking almost 2 packs of Marlboro Reds a day. That's ****ing nuts. There would literally be times where I would finish one cigarette and use it to light another one.

I used to always get the "Holy shit you take big dips" comment.

So what you're saying is that you can fit a lot in your mouth.

I quit.

Been a little over a week since my last cig. I feel better physically and mentally. No real cravings, but it's hard to say no if a friend offers me one.

I stuck with it. Yesterday was 100 days cigarette free. I still get cravings from time to time but I'm doing pretty good with it.
