    so... necropost. but i started this thread so it's kind of ok.

    here's an update: it only took another four years but i have finally quit smoking about three months ago. a friend of mine turned me on to vaping (not the just little e-cigs), and i was able to get off cigarettes. i'm currently one of those vaping dbags, it's pretty much the gluten-free of smoking (by the way, i discovered i am also celiac, so my life is gluten-free too). but i have much greater lung capacity now, i don't get tired as easily, and my sense of smell is back. the vape liquid i use is the lowest concentration of nicotine, 1.5mg, and i hope to be down to 0mg by the end of summer.

    so yeah, progress!

    Mike you can do it brother. I quit tobacco all together Dec 26, 2011. Stopped cold turkey. You've got to train your brain to link more positive feelings to quitting and WAY more negative stuff to not. Research what cancerous lungs look like, think about setting a good example for kids (yours or nephews/nieces), reward yourself with a new toy/project/whatever with the money you save from buying smokes. I chewed gum not nicotine kind, but big red. Exercise when you have the urge. I got faith in you. Now just do it!

    I think I had my screen name swited 2-3 years ago. And I miss The Sniffer too, but he's been banned for many years. How have you been doing?

    I am doing good in Atlanta. Re married with a step son. Took a huge break from costuming. Almost 4 years! And that includes the 501st. Yet recently I gathered the armor and did a birthday party event for a kid with a terminal illness with the 501st. 1st time suiting up in almost 4 years! I just like to say that there are lots of new faces here that I don't recognize (and I am glad they are here)

    It's good to see familiar folks like you from back in the day! Also . . .had you not placed the caption "Formerly St. Nasty" I would not have known that was you! Heck! Our history goes back over 10 years on this board and that is a long time for online forum standards! LOL! Do you still DJ at that establishment? (Trying to be PG rated here)

    How the heck are you ? ? ?

    Oh yes . . . saw some familiar faces still posting . . . aka . . . Superjedi.

    Good to hear you getting back into the costume game! You're right, it will be 10 years for me on TDH in November. I've been here a looooong time, lol. The "formerly" line on my screen name was Art's idea when I asked him to change the name. I don't work at the club any more, but I'm still a DJ. I do bars, nightclubs, and weddings now and that's finally really taking off. Overall I'm doing pretty well, I think.

    Good for you, dude! You can do it. I quit cold turkey in 2008. It was tough. I had tried several times before. Had all the normal triggers: before/after meals, getting in a car, etc. I often just went and sat outside for 5 minutes at random.

    One thing that helped me a lot was to print a list of the reasons I wanted to quit. Some were serious, but most were practical or even funny. Anyway, I put those things everywhere. Fridge, counters, mirrors, walls, etc. Even when I knew the list by memory, it was helpful to see that over and over again.

    Come to terms with the fact that you will never totally be over it. At least I'm not. I still crave one every now and then, but after those first couple weeks, it only gets easier. You got this.

    That's awesome to hear! I have just started my journey into the nonsmoking world. I'm giving this vape thing a try, so far so good. On the plus side, the money I save not smoking can go right back into my Fett lol.

    Well done buddy. Have you tried hypnotherapy to address the triggers? I am a hypnotherapist and assure you it works. As you have already done the most important part (ie to stop) then you are already very motivated. I believe you would respond really well to hypno

    once again though, well done
