    Loops:
    Congratulations! When I quit I was told that in five days your body is completely free of nicotine. Yes, that is good, but the cravings might come back: so just be aware of that.

    I really do mean this sincerely: a warm congratualtions and if I can be of any help (moral support) you can count on me.

    I quit for the last time on Feb. 03, 1992. That's 14 years and three months ago. I had the worst time quitting. My fnal straw was when I went for a chest X-ray for an upcoming surgery and they saw a shhadow on my X-ray. I had to wait for the actual results until over the weekend. It turned out to be a nipple shadow but it scared me enough that I have never had a cigarette since.

    I felt so stupid that I had put myself in a position of getting cancer. It's one thing if something out of your control happens to you but when you do it to yourself then you have to take responsibility!

    Don't give up, the craving only last 15 seconds, although there may be two seconds in between a craving they do get further and further apart and you will succeed!!
    Great work!!

    I have been smoke free for about mmmm 5 weeks or so, I can't remember. I tried quitting on Christmas...started cheating...even on the patch...got really bad...then had to go to the hospital. The ambulance driver wouldn't let me have a cig before I left or before I got into the hosp. and the hospital would not take me outside to have one, so I went cold turkey! I'll show them! Joke was on me....I ended up quitting....so far....and don't want one. I found it easier than with the patch or the gum.
    Keep up the good work! You can do it!

    I don't remember the date, but I think it was in June. It was the hardest thing I've ever done, but well worth it in the end.

    I think it was a year before I stopped wanting a cigarette, and to this day I tell folks that if I live to be 90 years old, I will smoke again.

    I've missed it terribly, but have not regretted quitting at all.

    The hardest part for me was that a cigarette was my reward for doing anything. Once I quit smoking, I couldn't have a cigarette for a reward and there was a great empty feeling in my stomach that finally went away.
