i started smoking at about age 13. I have tried everything, from gum, to patches, to inhalers, etc... and NOTHING WORKED! I smoked about a pack and a half (30 cigs) a day, for about 8 years.
The first time i had my chest xrayed about 3-4 years ago, they found a lump :shock: It ended up being just some extra fatty tissue buildup. Got my chest xrayed about 4-5 months ago and came back clean. What prompted me was horrible chest pains, to the point of passing/blacking out. they would last for about a week, then disappear for a year or two, then come back.
anywayz... the longest i ever stopped before this final time was 4 days on a bet about 4 years ago. to say the least, it didn't last.
I quit at 2:00pm last Wednesday 9/12/07. The first few days were torture, and i still find myself getting up every couple hours longing for that smoke. HOWEVER, with the support of my lovely fiance and friends, i think i can make it this time !!!!!
So, i would love to support and get support from fellow mz3 members that have kicked the habit or are currently in the midst (like myself) of kicking the habit!!!!
Cash, A couple words for you bro. I am going to try and stop this weekend again. I hate smoking with a passion. I get sick to my stomach everytime my son sees me light up.
I stopped smoking the herbals I know I can do this. The longest time without a cig was my week in jail (street racing). Lighted up right when I got out.
The chest pain could be anxiety or panic attacks if you feel like you are going to pass out and have chest pain those are 2 symptoms of anxiety. Trust me I know. If the doc says you are ok then trust him and roll with that. I am here for support bro, I could use it as well. All this money we spend on cigs can go on our cars.
I would hate to have to tally up how much I have spent on smoking in my life time. Enough to buy a car, maybe 2?
