Hello everyone,this is my first attempt at quitting smoking in 37 years.I actually quit on June 26th 2018.7 days ago. I am so tired of smelling like an ashtray.Such a stink,dirty habit.Now I can smell better then ever,tastebuds came back stronger too.Looking forward to seeing how much money I save to not smoking close to 2 packs a day.Only had one craving 2nd day of quitting but distracted myself and the craving went away.I started out with the Nicorette gum but no longer feel the need to chew one.Good luck to all of those that are this path of cleaner living and healthier lungs....We got this.1 day at a time,stay strong. :)
