"I Don't Want to Die"

I used Wellbutrin for 1 week and then quit. After day 4, I went off the pills cold turkey. I had to come up with a plan. When you quit, there is more going on than stopping the act of picking up the cigarette. You are fighting an addiction in your brain asking for nicotine, you are trying to break the habbit of picking up the cigarette in order to feel better, and you are changing your behavior completely until you feel like you can disassociate things you used to do while smoking. ( drinking coffee, driving, etc.)

After the first 4 days, I felt the tension release in my brain. It was much easier after that point. I no longer felt that I had a chemical craving after that point, and was able to just address the habbit of picking up the cigarette. At this point I also felt safe enough to leave the house for the first time. I had been afraid to go anywhere for fear of driving by a convenience store and having a weak moment.

It has been a little over 3 months now, and I know that I will not go back to them. I do not want to be a smoker. I still get the urge to have one now and then, but I understand that my urge is really for the stress release, or relaxation rather than the cigarette, and I find another way to release the stress.
I really hope that someone can benefit from my experience. I smoked for 15 years, and hopefully quit in time. I don't want to leave my children. I don't want to be a slave to something so evil, and I needed to take responsibility for it. No one is going to stop you, you have to stop yourself. Good Luck!

Cold Turkey and Statistics

I had been wanting and trying to quit for over a year. My first try was the nicotine patch and I even tried a herbal patch neither did a thing. Well I came across a website that stated "Ciggerettes kill 400,000 americans each year more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, murderers, suicides, illegal drugs, and fires combined." That was an eye opener. Two jumbo jets crash everyday and not a single person walks away alive. That is the number of people who die each day from smoking. Did I want to be a statistic? Or did I want to be among one of the people who quit smoking every year? So I had 12 ciggerettes left in a pack and I flushed them all down the toliet. I went cold turkey, drinking cold bottled water helped a lot. And also so did menthol cough drops. That was the first day, after that my craving for a ciggerette was gone. I understand that everyone is different but this is how things went for me. I haven't smoked a ciggerette in 4 months.

Im currently stationed in Okinawa Japan, USMC...lately ive been under a lot of stress which doesnt help with quitting..for the longest time I thought that if I quit smoking I would have to quit all the things that I associated with smoking, I.E. Coffee, food, sex, etc. Just recently I said to myself this really isnt worth it any more, my job is highly stressful, strenous and I notice while smoking that although I THINK it may help with the stress part it doesnt in any other way, so i kicked em, cold turkey, or rather am in the process of. My wife is there to support me 150%!

Tired of all the pain

I decided to quit cold turkey because I was so scared of the effects smoking was having on me. It was causing chest pains and I couldn't breath. So one morning I just woke up and said I'm not doing this anymore. I had smoked for about 7 years off and on. But now I think my little boy might be suffering from it. He has all kinds of upper respitory infections. So I am also doing it for my kids.
