    A little late but great news E.
    Another quitter here 25+ years. I relied on Cherry flavored mentholyptus cough drops I went through a bag a day. I needed something strong and they are.

    Tips

    Of course suck on a lozenger when you get a crave.
    Don't sit around at the table after eating, get up and do something. Like the dishes.
    Don't talk about it. If you do it makes you think about smoking.
    Cut down on Coffee (it goes hand in hand with smoking)
    Same with alcohol (ugh)
    We we're a lot younger. So we quit going out to bars/night clibs for a while. Too much smoke around at the time. I guess it's not an issue anymore.
    Do something with your hands keep busy. I actually built the USS Constitution.

    Good Luck

    Reggae.. that is quite a story!

    So far Einstein has been lucky to go through this with no really bad withdraw symptoms.
    But it is NOT the case with everyone. For a lot of people it is a very hard battle each and every moment I have know people who suffered memory loss.. just enough to make them feel they were losing it. Sleep deprivation, or too sleepy, temper outbursts, unable to concentrate.. etc.
    Fortunately this is not long term.
    So this is not easy to beat.. and everyone who even attempts this has my admiration and respect.

    E, This is fantastic news! Congratulations. I threw 'em out back in '95 (pack a day x 37 years!). It's going to take a little while, but you'll be amazed at how good fod will start to taste ....

    Seriously, this is really fantastic. If you feel an urge to chat for support, you have my e-mail ....

    So Proud of you E!! :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb
