41 days smoke and nicotine free...at midnight NY time, which from right now is roughly 2 hours away. I honestly don't miss smoking anymore.

Smoking is really a house of cards, the reasons people smoke are really an illusion. I have realized that I was ALWAYS in withdrawal as a smoker, everytime i put out a cigarette, i started another withdrawal phase until i got the crave or opportunity to smoke again. I just went for a walk today with a friend who smokes, it smells like ass to me now, and I didnt feel envious of him, which i had in the past, we stopped someplace to get a burger, in the half hour we were there, he went outside 3 times to have a cigarette, and i remember doing that myself, I could see the fidgety-ness in him as time passed and he was inside, restricted from smoking,a s he was withdrawing, i am past that and glad that i don't fear that i dont have my smokes with me, or worry how long a movie is or need to size up everything for next available time to smoke, it was a constant track of thinking in my mind that is no longer there and brings serenity knowing i dont need or want it. I'm 41 days in tonight 17 years smoking, 2 packs a day. The addiction is a mind game, and knowing why you smoke helps tackle it, I think. Everyone knows why they shouldn't smoke(health,money, socially ostracized, etc), but people dont seem to assess why they DO smoke as much, and the reasons are illusions. Freedom!

EDIT: btw I use to post one of these every single day, I haven't been cause if a day passes where I LITERALLY have NOT EVEN ONE thought of a cigarette or quitting smoking at all, I embrace that, because I feel that is like attaining non smoker status for real, I fully intend to stay fully active and near this board for at least a year, but I am glad days pass where "I forgot that I was even going through some alleged ordeal in quitting smoking" and feel Im starting to gain normalcy again, which is AWESOME!

Congrats.

Its nice to be an ex-smoker where days pass, without the thought even crossing your mind of a cig at all, or where you look at someone smoking, and not envy them, eh?

QuitDate: 02/16/13 02:30 AM EST
Smoked 2 packs a day. Quit cold turkey. Had cigs in the house until day 5 for self-test.
Is my counter accurate? yes it is, read here to find out why
