OK, it's been just over four months since my last cigarette. My cravings are virtually non-existant even when I'm at a bar with my chimneyesque friends. I've had a few cigars along the way, but no desire for a cigarette even after a stogie.

I think I'm cured!

SWEET! Must be nice to actually take a full breath now. Hopefully I will be able to say the same thing soon.

Hopefully he'll never know that we were smokers.

By yourself? My wife leaves Sunday morning for six weeks...my homebrew stock will actually get replenished during this time, plenty of brewing planned!

Congrats! I quit smoking over 16 years ago on my first try.

I've read that you are physically addicted to nicotine for 5-7 days and psychologically addicted for 6 months to a year.

You've made it this far...keep going!

Congrats! I seem to be just opposite of most people. I can make it a couple weeks no sweat, then the misery begins. Seems like every day after that, I want one worse and worse.

Ahh well, I'll either break the code, or it'll kill me.

Congrats once again!
