Bow Season doesn't open uuntil Saturday, the 26th. You should still quit on Friday - the sooner the better.

DRINK LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER when you do quit. Also it helps to start excersising and helps with the cravings. Drinking lots of water will help you detox off the nicotine quicker. I would try no nicotine replacment just go cold turkey, it takes about 3-4 days for the nicotine to get out of your system. The first 3 days are the hardest and after that its bjust breaking the habbit. Typically the cravings last less than a minute so do some air squats or push ups till it passes. Good Luck and you will feel a million times better once you have stopped.

It takes 21 days for something to become a habit. I am smoke free for about 7 years now and my goal was to make it 21 days without one...then it became a habit to not smoke...set your goal for 21 days and best of luck to you. I will also tell you i took the chantix program and it worked for me but i really wanted to quit.

If you are having trouble try an electronic cigarette!

Thanks for all the words. My wife had me one I those blu cig things Friday. It does ok. I've noticed a few guys on my job site that have those you wear around your neck. Kinda funny. I'll go cold turkey and keep the one Val got me and let it ride. And, yes bow season opens Friday here in Baldwin county. Thanks again guys. I'll probably stop drinking as well to let the nic out of my system. I bet that's tough having a beer and not a smoke.

My daughter was 5, my son was 3 and cigs were $3.50 a carton. Cold turkey like Orion. I didn't do it for me, I done it for my kids and wife. The best part was, I got most of the benifits. Hardest part was when me and the boys played poker and were having a few beers, but nobody smoked! Been there--done that, and YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

JMHO, but...nicotine is not harmful, it's the tar and all of that. So, a nicotine inhaler won't hurt you, BUT you are still keeping the addiction. Next time you are out with pals or want a dip or something like that you will do it.
