    Best of luck and continued success. I haven't smoked in 10 years, but I still want one all the time.

    Keep it up. I wished I never would have smoked. I quit over 10 years ago cold turkey and never looked back.

    Keep up the good work! I quit 9 years ago and it was the best thing I've done for myself.

    Good job! I quit 2 years ago, cold turkey. Chewing regular gum right after eating helped me a lot.

    Giving up cigs is HARD! Congrats on your streak! I had to give up beer for a while for me to finally quit for good. Those two went hand in hand for me. But, after many, many attempts at quitting, I'm now smoke free for over 10 years.

    Awesome!! I broke free from nicotine this past January. I consider it a big huge win. :) It's like a gift that keeps on giving. And running has been the BEST help--feeling my lungs take in oxygen and real honest-to-goodness deep breaths while I run is the ultimate motivator and it satisfies part of the physical urge as well. Instead of thinking of life without smoking as a loss or deprivation, it has helped me to think if it as something I am giving myself.

    I found it very discouraging when people said things like "20 years in and I STILL want a smoke all the time". It is not the same ever as when you first stop. The urges lessen consistently over time and although it might be a thought, it is never ever as bad as it is at the beginning.

    I found this site helpful as well. They are pretty hardcore about the cold turkey thing but it sure was helpful nonetheless.
