    When we married 25 years ago, both my husband and myself smoked. Every year or two we'd be "This time we quit for real". He would always be the first to cave. He was also always the first to angrily state that we must quit no matter what!. We tried everything from patches to hypnosis. After 18 years of this, one day I found myself crammed in a small space for 11 hours with a heavy smoker and man oh man did he ever reek to high heaven. I was so grossed out by the retched stench I quit there and then. After 22 years and numerous tries I finally did it. Cold turkey. My husband? Nope, here we are 8 years later and he still smokes a pack a day insisting he'll quit tomorrow. Now he's saying he'll quit by the time he's 50 (next year) so his body can 'regenerate'. I don't have high hopes. We discuss it pretty much every day and he always says "I know I have to quit, it's too expensive and it's killing me. Soon."

      Congratulations on your success, I know a ton of people that have the hardest time quitting and I always cheer on those who quit and stay strong. Good for you :)

        Thank you /u/drunkenninja. It's funny to me that after trying so many times and having such difficulty with quitting, that final time was so easy. Even with my husband still smoking I was never tempted, and I never even think about smoking, don't miss it in the least. I too applaud those that are trying to stop and have already quit. It's quite the task to give up such an integral part of ones life. So to all you wanna-be-ex-smokers....you got this! When the time is right you will be able to just walk away. One thing I did different that final time was buy a pack of cigarettes and stash it in the freezer. Every other time I would frantically smoke down to the last one then spend all my time thinking about how desperately I craved a cigarette. But with the pack stashed away just sitting there waiting for me if I needed it, it wasn't about never having one again, it became about simply not opening the pack. That comforting knowledge took the pressure off and was the just the trick I needed to finally quit smoking for good.
