I Quit Cold Turkey Five Years AgoI smoked for 20 years, and my husband and I quit together and i think that was key. I absolutely could not have done it, if he had continued. We quit because we were teaching childrens church at the time, and one of our church kids saw me smoking at a ballgame one night, and it made me feel bad. I had wanted to quit for a long time, as I had started having heart problems for a couple of years before quitting. So there was a lot of prayer, and a lot of people praying for us. And then there was a nice girl at Nature's Source that gave helpful advice. Most of which was to eat lots of pepper products, because it detoxify's your system, its good for cravings. So we ate lots of Louisiana hot sauce on everything. For about a year after we quit. Then didn't need it anymore. Also- if you can make it through the first 72 hours, you have a great shot. Thats how long it takes for the nicotine to detox out of your system. Feel free to message me if I can answer anything, i would love to help someone else quit smoking.
