TOPIC: Quitting Cloves!
#513
Quitting Cloves! 4 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 10  
So my girlfriend and I decided to quit smoking after Dinah Shore Weekend. Why, you ask?
Well for me, I really have no other option as Obama has decided to ban the sell of clove cigarettes in the U.S.
I mostly agree with his politics but must say, am not a fan of this policy. However, it has given me a reason to quit. So, last year before the ban went into effect, I bought enough cloves to last through March of this year (almost $500 worth!)
The first day of QUIT has been agonizing! I practically tore a hole in my lip from chewing it and my tongue is awfully sore!
I am a crabby, cranky bitch and I am going out of my skull. My girl keeps telling me it's gonna get better! Well, it better!
Til tomorrow.....wish me luck ladies.

GOOD LUCK ANNA!!!!
You can DO IT! I believe in you!

Now why is that so easy for me to say to her when I'm about ready to snap over the same thing!?!? lol

It has now been just about 47 hours since I have smoked a cigarette. Yes Anna and I are officially quitters. Congrat-u-fucking-lations to us! lmfao I'm trying to be supportive and positive but I honestly want to break something! I'm irritated, grouchy, fidgety, anxious, can't stop shoving food in my mouth, and why does everything anyone has to say sound like the whatever the fuck the parents said on Charlie Brown? You know that sound...."whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa"??? I'm so over this and I'm not even at day 2. Eck! I want to smoke an entire cig right now, at my desk. lol

Well wish us luck as Anna and I approach our 47th hour as non-smokers. We're gonna need it!

*sigh*

You can do it girls! Have faith!

I smoked for over 23 years and quit a little over 4 years ago.....Just remember, you will always want to smoke, so U have to remind yourself WHY you quit.....I mean it comes in stages, usually U will want to smoke when your stressed, or if you are drinking, or if you go to Vegas.....but it definitely gets easier over time.....

I went to Freedom Laser Therapy....it helped immensely.....but if you are approaching the 2 day mark, you are already on your way! Keep it going!

Try taking lots of Vitamin C and some kind of antioxidants it will help you feel better while U are detoxing from the nicotine!

Good Luck!

Girls you were very well behaved this evening!!!
You never looked like you were gonna fall off your chairs in withdrawals, even though u prob felt like it, and the ritual smoke after dinner was no more!

So remember...
Smoking is a DISCUSTING FILTHY HABIT!!!!

Soon u will be non-smokers!
And your clothes will not smell smokey, nor will your breath, or your cars!
And you will be able to walk uphill without getting a side-stitch in your lung!
And your teeth will be pearly white!

One day you will look back & think "I can not believe I was EVER a smoker!!!"

LOVE u both & keep up the good work!

Quitting Cloves- Tuesday DAY 2 4 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 10  
Thank you all so much for the words of encouragement:)
I am so impressed by Quinshiba, a smoker for 23+ years and quit now for 4+ years! Good for you girl!

I do want to smoke almost every single minute since I quit & we ARE going to Vegas next month! LMFAO
I quit because my girl and I are trying to get healthy & perhaps one of us will get AI.... we wanted a cig so badly
Tuesday night that she said, "Maybe we can just adopt." And I actually considered doing it for a second to justify going back to smoking! OMG, is that insane or what?! That's how fucking addicted I am!

I have also begun eating everything in sight. I am wondering what's worse: smoking or being fat????


to be continued......

I used to suck/chew on those cigarette filters that you can buy that supposedly filter out the tar from cigarettes....but only the new ones, don't torment yourself on a dirty one...lol.....helped with the oral fixation part a little bit....

Its been incredibly hard for me, since my wife still smokes like a chimney.....I still encourage her (and nag) but I know she has to make up her mind to quit, I can't MAKE her quit, just like no one could make me quit, I had to do it for myself.

If its really something you want to do, you have to be stubborn about it.....and remember that if you have EVEN ONE, you WILL go back to smoking, thats how addictive those nasty little things are....

I used to love to smoke a nice cigar every now and then, but I won't even let myself smoke a cigar for fear that I might smoke again.....but, every now and then I will buy one in Vegas and just suck on it a little when I get the urge to smoke....and honestly after a few trips out there in the smoky casinos you will start to actually be disgusted by it......

Stay strong ladies....it will be worth it when you can breathe deeply and don't cough every morning....or gasp every time you walk too far....

You want to be very careful about eating too much, when you quit smoking it totally screws up your metabolism, because nicotine is like an upper, so once your body doesn't have it, your metabolism may slow down a bit, and its easy to pack on the pounds, trust me.....been there, done that......

You can DO IT....be vigilant.....

Day Two and a Half Blues:
Just ate dinner so now wondering what the hell to do with myself. I used to get such enjoyment from my after dinner smoke with my beautiful girlfriend. The lack of our normal after dinner toke is driving me absolutely insane. I just went through ten minutes of pacing just about every inch of the 1st floor of our townhouse and now I am wondering if maybe I should go do the same upstairs now. I cant focus on tv, on the article i was writing, on my cat that is next to me wanting pets, on this forum post....I have already had to re-read this three times to remember where I was. OMG this sucks!

Okay Okay, Remember this is a GOOD thing! Find your happy place Mel! Wait for it...wait for it......I got nothing. ECK!

Okay maybe Anna has one she can share. *leans over to Anna and asks what her happy place is*
Her reply..."Indonesia!"
LMFAO - Of course it is, it's the only place you can get the Cloves she loves so much since the ban.

Well, wish me luck as I go try to find something in the kitchen to shove in my mouth instead of a cig. UGH!

Oh my! I feel your pain! I have been going through the whirlwind rollarcoaster myself. Every moment once you've quit seems like years since ya had that last "I'm about to quit cig."
So far, I have gone a couple of months....trying not to count the days or hours!! But, believe everyone when they tell you that it does get easier!
My challenge right now it seems is socializtion. I get the urge to smoke when I'm among friends who smoke. Grrr!
Everyone is different and I'd hate to sound like a commercial but the patch has been my best friend while trying to quit! And I have been pretty darn successful.
Whatever it takes to at least HELP you quit TAKE IT! Cold turkey is hard even for the most determined!
Lots & LOTS of luck! You can do this!

Quitting Cloves: DAY 4 4 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 10  
So, I'm still not smoking, but I am still suffering!
Thank you Nicolle, Quinshiba, Sarah M. and of course my girl, Mel:)

After reading your posts, I decided to give in and NOT do this quit thing cold turkey....
I broke down and am chewing a piece of that nasty nicotine gum as we speak (or as I write.)

The weird thing is, although it is getting all frothy and smells like cigarette smoke, I am actually finding it comforting!
I am (was) one of those smokers who really enjoyed the smell and taste of my cloves. Hell, I really liked to smoke period.

Ok, enough of that...it just makes me miss it even more. I'm trying the "out of sight out of mind" trick. Every time it pops into my head; I quickly disregard the thoughts.

Hopefully, with my new strategies of nico gum and deflective thinking I will get through this quit thing and not gain 100 lbs.
Keep the advice coming girls!

btw: I've saved almost $7 and not smoked about a pack of cloves since this thing started. I' should live 2 hours longer now too! WHoPPee....LOL

Okay Anna and I have made it 4 days, and are officially working on day 5. YAY! Go Anna! Go Mel! lol

I wish I could really say that with conviction but I cannot. The truth is I'm eating too much so am gaining weight, having digestive issues, can't sleep through the night, and have turned into a moody, grumpy, grouchy bitch. Yes very bad news. I don't feel any better at all....*sigh*

I tried the nicotine gum. EEEEK! Okay so instant burping and bloating followed by violent nausea is NOT for me. I will just keep being grumpy while eating everything in sight. lol

Well enough about me, I want to be sure to say that I am truly thankful for all of the support I have received through this thread as well as from all my friends and family. I appreciate it all. And thank you Anna for putting up with my funk and still cuddling and loving me every night no matter what a grouch I have been all day. You're the best. *kiss*
