Quitting Smoking

So I decided to stop smoking yesterday. Ive been smoking since I was 16 (22 now) and have worked up to two packs a day(full flavor Marlboros) Ive known for a while how badly I need to stop, but never could even really consider it. Now im seeing a girl that i actually like and dont want to push away lol, shes very asthmatic, so i figured it would be a good reason. I also know that im guarenteed to have heart problems eventually (im 6'6, 290lbs). Stopped yesterday and now im going bat **** crazy. I have been chewing a can of skoal a day since and still want more (i know, not much better). I still want to smoke, even with a chew in! I'm trying to stay away from things that would normally led me to smoking, but thats not helping much. For those of you who have been in my situation, how did you deal with it? I need all the advice I can get, i need to see this through. Thanks.

Good luck man! Really! I quit about 1 year ago after smoking for 10 years. My best advice is to try and replace the smoking with something good for you, (working out, running, walking, maybe doin' stuff w/ your PSD ) I quit smoking and made a commitment to go to the gym and get my a$$ back in shape, now i'm almost obssesed with working out, not a bad habit plus i've got some good results to show for it! Anyway, I wish you the best of luck, oh and once you quit never, never, NEVER start again.

I agree with outlaw. You have to replace it something healthy such as working out. Whenever you feel the need to smoke drop down and do twenty push ups or however many that will make you breathing hard. Also, carry around little healthy snacks because you'll want to fill that craving (apples, oranges, seeds, or gum). You may even want to have toothpicks on hand. Good luck man.

My dad was going to quit smoking a few years back but could never get past the first few weeks. Like the other guys say, the first few weeks are the hardest! My Dad's been smoking since 16 and now he's 42!! The thing that drove him back to smoking though was not keeping himself busy and being to stressed by running the restaurant. He would also hang out in bars alot with his friends, which was probably the worse thing anyone trying to quit could do lol. Like Outlaw said, working out is a good habit to pick up in place of smoking. Good luck and hang in there bud, it's defintely a fight worth winning.

Its mind over matter.
Everytime you get a craving, think of several reasons you want to quit and say them outload, by the time you list off 5-10 reasons, the crtaving is gone and you don't want one. After a week or so of this, you will start to think smoking is disgusting and you will be turning your nose up when you see someone doing it. Its mind power.
I did this and i actually wrote out a list on a 3x5 card and carried that in my pocket and each reason started out with "I want to quit smokeing because" and then i had about 10 reasons so i would get that out first thing in the morning and read it outload. Anytime durring the day that the monkey jumped on my back, i grabbed that card and read it.
It worked great!

I quit in March! Started again in August!

I chewed lots and lots of gum and get different flavors since you really shouldn't chew either, because you're not actually letting the nicotine work it's way out of your system.

You can do this!!!!!!!! I know I will again soon, jeeez especially after the lecture I got this last weekend from Larry @ DPP!
