Congrats on your great decision to quit. It is totally do able - that's why so many of us are here on this board. Either going through the process at the same time as you, or trying to help others who follow.
QSMB - the people, the support and crucially the education about this addiction and what happens when we quit - all made the difference to me and so many others.
So I'd say cling to this board like the lifeline that it is and read as many articles and threads as you can to really understand what you are going through and how best to get through it. The main thing is not to smoke and then things will get better - we promise you that. You just have to dig deep to get through this early stage, but you can do it and everyone will be here to support you. Keep us posted.
Smokers don't 'get' to smoke, they 'have' to smoke - that's when the penny dropped for me..

Good job, welcome to the non smokers life.
In couple months you could run more, smell better and breathe better as long as you remain clean.
Hit us up as you through your quit.

Have micromete patches and an inhibitor, which is, figuratively speaking, glued to my hand.
When you say inhibitor, are you talking about vaping or an electronic way of inhaling nicotine?

Bloody predictive text, I meant an inhilator, have just edited the original post to correct that. No I want to and am, nicotine free, vaping would be silly. It's the nicorette one, the wee white plastic thingy with the cartridge inside.
Oh! I'm with you now! I was worried for a minute.

Good for you. Learn as much as you can about this addiction, it really helps. Know your enemy! Try and keep busy for the first week or so. Tidy, walk, organise, learn to juggle etc etc. All the best to you and your quit.

Hi Follow...... Welcome to QSMB and congratulations for making the best decision for the rest of your life.
Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "
I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!
Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman
Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think
Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!
Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.
If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!
" I am a puff away form a pack a day"
Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.
I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit, I ate it.
Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.
