the wife and I have completed our year without a cigarette. She was smoking a pack a day, and I was smoking 2 plus. she has smoked for some 30 years and myself 37 years. We now save 450.00 a month which in turn is paying for my truck, it's like getting my ride free.
first you have to really want to quit, then go cold turkey, I used life savers(pep o mint).
went through 30 40 a day to start. after about a month the hard cravings went away. then it was a breeze. I still want a smoke , but it goes away as fast as it came.
Kevin, the $450 will be nothing compared to the changes you will see in your life. You will be able to smell and taste things again. Good for you. Be proud of yourself and your wife that you have been able to conquer something that millions can't. I'm sure all of the fellow posters on here share the same feelings! Best wishes for continued success!!!
