I buy pre-mixed with 9mg of nicotine and I keep mine stored safely as I would with alcohol or any other chemical in the house that I don't want my kids getting into.
Thanks for the correction. Apparently I misunderstood.

I ate a ton of licorice chunks. It was a strong flavor that helped to divert my attention from the nicotine craving.

Now, I don't know about the rest of the ex-smokers out there, but I really do miss smoking. I miss the dry, hacking cough in the morning. I miss the holes burned in my favorite shirts. I especially miss the taste of an old dirty ashtray in my mouth when I wake up in the morning.

Dang! Wasn't smoking great?

Smoked for 13 years, quit with the patch.
Did the patch for 4 weeks, then done with it.
You have to want to quit, period.
For me it has been 7 years 5 months 7 days.
You will gain weight, but the truth is the healthiest thing you can do in your life if you smoke is to quit smoking, the weight gain pales in comparison to the consequences of continuing smoking.

I can pick up a cig and smoke it, then never think about it again for MONTHS. Well, I COULD. I don't any more as they taste nasty to me now.

My mother started smoking at age 14. She is now 83. Her lung function is 28% of normal for someone her age, she has compression fractures of the spine due in no small part to smoking, as well as advanced macular degeneration, same reason. She can't be upright more than an hour at a time without a lot of pain. She exhales with a strong "ssssssss" noise which the doctor told me was because she needs that back pressure to expel the air from her lungs. And yes she STILL smokes. Her doctor says basically at this point, stopping is probably worse than smoking - the nicotine withdrawals would likely do her in.

One of these days she is gonna get exposed to a cold and that will do it.

Definitely makes ya stop and think about it!

Fellow quitter here... started somewhere are 16-17, and quit July last year (35 in a couple weeks). Quit cold turkey, and haven't looked back. I figured that once it became a "social only" or work only thing, why waste the money on it...

Are there other ex-smokers like me who don't care if others smoke in their presence? When commuting I don't even care if co-workers smoke in my car.

I suppose that'd depend on how long ago you quit. I could tolerate it now but wouldn't like it. Right after I quit, that would have been downright torture.

My wife still smokes in the car with me, I spend my lunch breaks out with the smokers.. so I guess that would mean it doesn't bother me...

In the car would probably get to me, but there's something so great about smelling cigarette smoke outside on the first couple warm days of spring. Right?

This. The traces of smoke are really is nice. I do not feel the urge to smoke when i smell it, I just do not want my house/car smelling of stale smoke. I was against indoor smoking in my house/car when I did smoke.
