Smoking Marlboros 45 years and 22 hours ago!
I was 18 smoking 2+ packs a day since i was 17.
My lungs hurt to smoke in the morning, so i decided cigarettes did nothing for me and threw my half pack out of the tractor window

Congrats on making that long!
Quit about 6 years ago myself after 10 years of smoking, hardest thing I've ever done.

They just went to 50 cents, you could still find places that still sold for 45Ę, i think a carton was 4.00$

I never needed a note. Started smoking and chewing when I was 12. Quit in m y 30 's. Have mild COPD now. Use an inhaler every morning. That lung damage never completely heals.

Do yourself a favor and put $14 (or whatever 2 packs cost) a day in an envelope. You didnít miss it when you were smoking it you arenít going to miss it in the envelope.

Congratulations! Hope you stay off of them. Threw them out the window 15 years ago myself. Now you got to try to keep away from the extra food. Try chewing sugar free gum. Seems to help lots of people. Take care and good health

I quit the day my first born grandson was born. 18 years ago, he and I spent Sunday building a new deer blind in his hunting spot. I was 40 when he was born. I smoked weed and Marlboro's since I was 16. Best advice I could give, and how I did it cold turkey, is I told not 1 person I quit. I did not even tell my wife. I stayed at my hunting property in a truck camper for a week in May, fished trout cut and split wood, walked and thought about life. I came home and within 1 day my wife called me out. She cooked my favorite supper and desert, afterwards I did not go outside for a few minutes. It was one of the most memorable hugs I ever got. I have not touched anything since. Only have a drink or several at the camp around the fire.


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

My body told me I HAD to quit over 40 yrs ago. I'd light one up, throw it and the pack out the window, stop at the next town and buy another pack. It was a long haul but finally did it. Then had to give up Pepsi many years later. The only bad habit I have now is coffee. Well........that and lying.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

I tried to take up smoking most of my life. 68 now. Mostly when drinking or when hunting with buddies but could never get hooked. Finally had to admit I was never going to be a smoker no matter how hard I tried. Have not bothered to even try anymore in 5 or 6 years. I don't know what was wrong with me lol. My father had the same problem just threw away a pack of smokes when he was 34 in 1952 and never went back. He died 3 months short of 99. I think they used to get them off the Americans servicemen real cheap. There were American bases and stations all over the coastal and northern areas of Canada one time in WWII and the Cold War.

Seriously it is a curse and we were lucky. Know many people with a problem that have paid dearly for it.

Good job! I quit about 14 years ago and best thing I ever did. I was a pack a day guy in college and working construction. Then when my youngest was born decided that was it. Hardest thing i did to quit those things.. but time and staying busy helped, chewed a (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) of a lot of gum too..
That was 24 marathons ago since I quit, wanted to heal my body up and started running. Can do a lot of neat things when you don't smoke. grin

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I quit smoking when I was 26. Just walked away from it, but picked up the chew habbit that lasted till I was almost fifty. That was much harder to quit for me than smoking. My worst habbit now is working.....but I'm tryiing to quit! Headed to 74 here in a few months!

I would never have a cigarette again, just to smell it makes me sick, 2-3 day headaches
