shonie777 I'm glad you are back on your feet and your surgery went well. Congrats on stopping the cigarettes. I've been smoking 32 years, started smoking a full pack at 13. I enjoy smoking, but I also hate it too. It's the whole love/hate thing. Some days you love it and some days you friggin hate it and wish you never started.

I used to be able to smoke at work when I was a mechanic years ago, but ever since I got into the whole IT (technology) stuff, I've been stuck in schools and government buildings most of the day where smoking is not allowed.

So to get my nico-fix, I picked up Copenhagen snuff years ago and been chewing at work (at work only) for the past 14 years. And to top it all off, I'm an casual cigar smoker too. I love the dayum things. I usually have 1-2 cigars a week and even more (2-4) when I'm out on the lake in my boat.

I'm also Native American and tobacco plays a huge role in our ceremonies. So me giving up tobacco completely is something I seriously doubt that I could do. I gave up drinking and doing drugs 7 1/2 years ago and it has completely changed my life for the better. I'm sure if I gave up tobacco it would be another wise choice to make for the better wellbeing of myself and body.

When I think about it, quitting tobacco all together would be a helluv-a-lot harder than quitting drugs and alcohol. Well for me it is. I've tried a couple of times.

My first attempt at stopping cigarettes I lasted a little over a year. It was the toughest thing I had ever done in my life. All I thought about was cigarettes 24-7 and I was a major a-hole the entire time. After drinking a case of beer with my wifeís cousin one summer night, that's where I cracked and started smoking again. I felt horrible, but also felt relief and sane again.

My second attempt was New Yearís Eve about 5 years ago. I didn't even last 24 hours. I remember sitting in the truck and popping another piece of that disgusting nico-gum in my mouth and chewing it. It burned my mouth and throat and made my stomach churn. I pulled into a Walgreens spit out that rancid gum and bought a pack of cigarettes.

I had a heart attack a few years ago and was flown out to Flagstaff medical center where they doped me up with morphine and did all kinds of tests on me. In the end they simply told me to quit smoking. The first thing I did when I was released from the hospital was to have a cigarette.

After the heart attack, I stopped smoking corporate cigarettes (Marlboros) and went to All Natural cigarettes (American Spirit). Corporate cigarettes have all the added crap in them that really jack you up. The all natural ones donít. It took me a while to get used to these all natural smokes, but they were different and actually believe it or not, I did feel physically better. Iím not saying that these are any safer, but for me, in my own pathetic excuse, made me feel better about justifying my habit.

The way I look at it for myself, I'll prolly be a tobacco user til the day I die (most prolly tobacco related too). I just simply don't have the will power or discipline to quit. I do however commend you for your will power and determination to kick the habit. I envy you.

skier207 Nikki,
No such thing as just one more smoke. I smoked for almost 20 years, quit now for 20, I started at 12. Quitting was the hardest thing I ever did, smartest thing I ever did. Hang tough don't give in to the urge(smoking). Eventually the urge to smoke will go away, it took years in my case. Sounds like the knee recovery is on track!

dagirl71 well when I was young I did most of what the boys that I hung out with...I was a serious tomboy and I am sure called some names behind my back by other kids...but I liked who I was enjoyed doing boy things then around 13 my mom said enough time to be a girl and it all started to changed.... but at 38 I am back!!! lol missed the tomboy and honsetly life was sad and harder when I wasn't (atleast through school)... so daddys let you girls be tomboys until they grow out of it...don't worry the right time will come

I have quit twice before once for 3 years and the last time for 6 and both times picked it right back up like I never quit. This time I think might be different. I had surgery and stopped smoking the night before so I didn't quit my best friend, I choose to stop hanging around him...lol (I totally get the best friend dying)

I have 1 more week home then we will see how hard it is but I will have 3 weeks smoke free by then

trx700 You must be one tough woman to chew. LOL I use to chew and smoke at the same time.

Good luck on the hardest accomplishment in the world...not smoking. I took me 5 years to quit and I fell off the wagon every 3-6 months but I would not stop quiting. I would try not smoking at work and then come home and still put down a pack before I went to bed. I was hooked bad.

I would get so depressed when I quit. I walked around like someone died in my family. It was my best friend Marlboro Red. I missed him so much. Me friends would just laugh. Each time I quit I went longer in time. The last time I quit hanging around people that smoke, chewed nicotine gum, ziban pills and that helped alot. Its been 6 years now.

The key factor is don't be to hard on your self if you go back and don't stop trying to quit.

Its like AA...one day at a time.

ok so they drilled two holes in my bones and the one you can see is a teflon coated nylon screw that has my new acl attached to it. The one you can't see on the lower bone is a screw that will dissolve in time. Dr said about six months and my new acl should be attached itself. Pretty cool huh! I am also at 100% flat or straight leg and at 96* in bending!!! I also now have a new brace that I need to use to walk for the next couple of months...and after that he said if I am doing any there extreme and wish to protect my knee
