    As of today I have been quit smoking for 9 days, Terra has been quit for a week.

    Yeah for me [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've been at least a two pack a day smoker for around 32 years, so I think it's a major milestone in my life.

    So now I gotta problem. I need a new vice.... I think I'll take up.. ummm.. eattin' lots of sweets?

    Congratulations! I was a pack-a-day smoker for about 20-ish years and had my last cigarette on March 3, 1998. Within a month, I noticed everything tasted better.

    I think that is why people gain weight after they quit smoking. I know that in the first 2 years after I quit, I gained about 40 pounds. Food just tasted SO much better!

    MFB, it's not an easy thing to do, and I commend you and your wife on your nonsmokingness!

    Wait until you hit that one-year-without-a-cigarette milestone. You will really feel accomplished & I know that when I got to that point, I remember thinking to myself, "I never thought I'd be a year without cigarettes!" Now here we are 13 years and 6 months later, and the only time I REALLY craved a cigarette was when my mother died in 2005. However, I smelled someone else's cigarette & it made me gag so I did not give in.

    To this day, the smell of other people's cigarettes and the smell on their clothes makes me gag. It floors me that I used to smell like that.

    My dad quit smoking a couple years ago and it made my life.... Of course, then he switched to chewing tobacco. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Keep it up! [​IMG] I'm with Kristy: More chickens!
