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

I chewed since 1977 but haven't had a dip since October 11. The gum kept me reasonably safe to be around and I stopped the gum after a week or so(less than one box). I've ate enough Tic-Tacs and Icebreakers to choke a medium sized horse so far and haven't stopped either of those.

Thanks for the good advice. I even appreciate the "quit or you're a pussy" posts. I'm not 100% certain that I want to quit, and I think that's what is the most concerning. I've got about a pack and a half left, and think I might just smoke these and then just not buy anymore. We'll see how it goes.

Eight years ago I made a resolution to loose 40 pounds and keep it off. I have done that and then some. I weigh less than I did in high school and basic training. Good luck.

20 year 1/2 pack a day quit cold turkey. Had heart burn for two weeks and smoking dreams. 5 + years later best thing I ever did for myself.

if you're not sure you want to quit you won't. it took me almost 17 year to really quit. first tried when i was 21 then finally completely laid them down when i was 38. been just about 12 yr now. funny thing is though after this long there are times when it feels like i could pick one up and light up like i never quit, but that passes now pretty quick.

if you decide you really want to quit remember you'll never make it a week if you don't make it a day. then weeks turn into months, and you know the rest.

You started smoking when you were 18? You do know that isn't cool anymore, right? Hell, it wasn't cool when I was in high school 10 years ago.

you will not be successful. It's too damn hard. You can't quit because you want/need to quit.

Yeah. I hate to be the judgmental prick because I'm usually not that at all; but smoking cigarettes is one of the dumbest ****ing things you can do. Like, why? Why even take that first hit? There is nothing good about, whatsoever.

I guess you could argue that the nicotine buzz is considered a high, but really you're just scratching an itch.

You should try heroin. Shit's way more intense and last quite a bit longer...

That's why my dad won't quit. He says he likes his morning cig, his after meal cig, his before bed cig. I just don't see it.

You know, you likely find it relaxing because you're getting that nicotine fix that you were craving. That's why people that try to quit often feel anxious or whatever; they're going through the withdrawals.

I could see how the time itself could be relaxing, but why not just spend it without smoking? I like my time on the shitter. Sometimes I'll go sit on the toilet for 15 minutes even though I know I don't have to shit. I'll have a seat, think about the day, think about tomorrow, check CP...

You should pick up meditation or reading or something. That's just as relaxing and actually healthy as well.
