Hey Dagger, chewed copenhagen for 22 years. Quit 7 years ago, and except for a few short relapses, finally quit for good 4 years ago. Still wouldnt mind a chew. Its a bit tough when your doing something you associate with it but it can be done. Ya just grit yur teeth and do it. I also learned not to bash myself if I relapsed, it happens. I would just quit again, which of course meant going thru withdrawals again. It was that realization that helped me to finally put a kibosh to the chewin.

I also started chewing non tabbacco mint chew which helped some as a placebo. You might check out this webpage...http://www.quittobacco.com/. They sell the mint chew and have some quit smoking programs.

And whatever you do, DONT replace smoking with eating! Exercise instead. One last thing...asking the Good Lord for a little help never hurt either, I KNOW he walked with me thru all the ups and downs...

 

I hope I helped. I am real glad I quit. I still find myself grinning from time to time. Feels good not to be a slave to no one or nothing.

Dagger, I have been a smoker since the Navy in 92 and I think about quitting everyday, but to this point I just haven't wanted to. My Dad quit smoking 20 years ago and he said he just woke up one morning and looked in the mirror and said "I'm gonna quit" He hasn't smoked since. He is now almost 54 and probably in better shape than i am at 32. My mom quit 6 months ago after being a smoker for almost 30 years and she is going strong. You give me hope brother! I know that one day I will wake up and decide that I have had enough and just quit. They may have to lock me up in a padded room for a few days, but from hearing your updates I know it can be done.

Keep up the updates and I'm right behind ya.

 

Bravo
