    congratulations! that is awesome. I quit 7 years ago. it was one of the hardest things i ever did. i found that citrus and citrus candy helped. i also bought a variety of different nuts in shells to keep my hands busy when i was watchiung tv at night. Also, discovered the "dessert steak" at this time. LOL

    Yeah I've been hungry all the time but I have to just ignor it. I can't afford to gain weight as Aug is just around the corner and going to WOCS. Wife been real understanding about me being kinda distant too.. I swear the other day the pug was eating to loud and it made me so mad.. Really had to think abut that and tell myself how stupid I was acting.

    I've tried every kind of gun.. Liking new 5 the best lolI could not quit cold turkey. Had to see a doctor and get some help. I got on Chantix . Anyone interested don't get scared off by side affects. smoking side afects are worse and it helped me take edge off.. I only took it 3 weeks then got off as I didn't notice it doning anything anymore. first week while still smoking.. Noticed cig tasting like crap and smoked less and less and set my date to not buy more. Was still hard but it gave me a edge for sure.

    I quit cold turkey in 1981. Was up to two packs of Marlboro Reds a day.

    Stay with it!

    My strategy was to make myself feel nauseated EVERYTIME I felt like smoking.

    Quit a 3 pack/day Marlboro addiction in 1975 when I became a civilian and smokes went from $.26 to $.52 per pack. I went cold turkey and I hated everything for a while - even got mad at the SOB looking back at me in the mirror as I tried to shave each morning. Gained a lot of weight but all else is positive.
    same basic experience with alcohol in 1985 but lost a little weight then. Now all I got is guns for a bad habit.
    Keep up the good work, Amigo.
