Yes, I the one who has always said "I'll quit when I'm dead" am on my last 2 cigarettes (hopefully) of my 11 year smoking career which up until now has consisted of roughly... 80,300 cigarettes or 4,015 pack or 401.5 cartons, and has cost me roughly $15,000.
I figured while I'm between jobs and planning on moving by July (Sorry guys I'm not moving to canada yet, I've got a job offer in michigan that I'm taking working for my friend bruce's friend rattan's construction company or working with Bruce in his wood shop making desks, chairs, and all kinds of crazy stuff) I'll take the time to save some money and quit smoking.
My last attempt resulted in 3 days in my bed sleeping after which I woke up, rolled out of bed went to the store and bought a pack of smokes and I had purchased and installed 128 megs of ram on my computer without remembering it.
The time before that, I spent almost 7 days in a quasi-coma in which I was still alive without mechanical aid and I would slip in and out of consciousness every 12 hours or so.
The time before that resulted in me beating the hell out of a friend of mine for taunting me with a cigarette.
Hopefully this time will end up better.
I'll have to post updates on the things I'm experiencing since I seem to hallucinate badly when I quit smoking.
My current plan is to stay awake as long as humanly possible so I go down an out for most of the nicotine detox time which is roughly 72 hours.

I quit smoking about 3 years ago. I had always assumed it would be a difficult thing to do, but when it came right down to it wasn't really all that difficult.
The hardest part about quitting was making the decision to do it.
Once I finished what was to be my last pack, I simply stopped buying and bumming smokes and before too long I was an ex-smoker.
I never experienced any of the withdrawal symptoms you describe Nostrafus, which leads me to believe they are all in your head (or just a way to fluff up your post). You have to beat the cravings; both real and imagined; that make you think you need a cigarette 'before' you choose to quit or else you will just succumb to them.
Before I was successful I had maybe four failed attempts which all failed because I wasn't mentally prepared to just walk away from them. When I was mentally prepared, the physical part never really manifested itself strongly enough to make a difference.
Once I realized that all smoking really is, is a repulsively smelly way to kill yourself and deprive your family of precious time to spend with them while burdening others and dying slowly of any number of horrible possible diseases related to the habit, it became pretty easy to make up my mind to quit. (Gosh those things really freaking stink!
Far from me tooting my own horn, I responded to this in the hope that you can also break away from this killer weed. I hope that maybe hearing from someone who did it can help you do it too!
Edit> Sorry, I forgot to say congratulations on making the decision to quit! Congrats!
Satying awake for 72 hours?????damn good luck with that.

hmm i also taught of quiting smoking but its rather hard. its something you can do when you dont have anything to do. a time spoiler.
but i think i will quit and put money in a jar (4â‚¬ every 48h) and after 2 months you can buy alot of things. and looking at the jar will keep me motivated.
Good luck, you will need every ounce of it. I have been smoking for about 5 years now and don't think I could handle it. Then again I like the act of smoking slightly more than actually smoking.

Nostrafus... I smoked cigarrettes two years. Dunno how many I
smoked, but it started to seem like i was smoking like 5 a day.
I got started at parties, you know, grab a cig after you've had
your beer or vodka, gin, or rum. But sooner or later cigarettes
started winding into my social life. Wound up in the drug world
Thank god I had friends who cared enough. Everytime I lit one
up I got about a fifteen minute lecture while i was puffing away.
I've spent over several k on cheif, and cigarettes combined. One
night I found myself in jail for posession. It was the worst experience
in my life, and I decided that night I was going to walk away from it.
Also I've had other incentives to quit. I've had girlfriends in the past
and they wont wanna be around you or anywhere nere you while
you've got a square in your hand.
Dude I know how hard it is to quit and I still screw up sometimes.
If you want to chat drop a PM maybe we can help each other out.
PEACE OUT BRO.

Good luck, your gonna need it.
Just don't give up. Its a pain to deal with somebody trying to quit, get 95% of the way there, deal with their withdrawl, then have them get back in it. If your going to quit, do it!
