That's fantastic! It's so hard to let go of our vices. 2 years is a huge accomplishment...not to mention, think of the money you've saved in the last 2 years.

Congrats on staying strong! Not like smoking is even an option with NY prices. When I was home in July cigarettes were almost $10 a pack for Camels.

I've been a couple months smoke free and I don't think I'm going to go back. It's too hard to run with the added pressure in your chest, and I don't miss the phlegmy cough after every meal.

Questions for quitters - do you find that you're extra sensitive to/repulsed by cigarette smoke now? I can't stand being around it because it's so offensively toxic.

Mine's next month! It will be two years for me, too, though I didn't smoke for as long (I'm only 31, so it would have taken a lot for me to be at that point ). Congratulations!

Congratulations!! That is amazing!

I wish I would quit! I got pregnant July of 2009 and I stopped smoking immediately, rarely even had a craving. Even after I had the baby in April I didn't want a cig. Then in June my Dad died. On the way home from his funeral I was going crazy with grief and wanted a smoke more than anything, needless to say the pack I bought just to have one or two has turned into a full-fledged smoking addiction again! My Dad would be so disappointed too, he hated that I smoked and was so glad I quit when I got pregnant.

Arghh, I am just telling myself that life is a process, Rome wasn't built in a day, yadda yadda yadda... Right now I am losing all the baby weight and then I'll tackle the cigs. At least that is the plan.

I am so glad for your success!
