     It is now 11:45 PM, Saturday, 31 January.  That marks five days - 120
hours - without a smoke.  I want one so bad, I can taste it, but if I can make
it this far, I can make it for the next hour or so, until I go to bed.
     Then, I'll just have to worry about the craving in the morning.
Fortunately, there are no cigarettes in the house.  If there were, i would have
fallen off the wagon four days ago.

Supposedly this is the hardest part.  We're all pulling for you.  Just think of
all the good things that are going to come out of it.  You'll not have to go
outside for a smoke, you'll be able to save a lot of money, and think of how it
will improve you'r game.  Better lung capacity, better heart, and you'll be
able to spend more money on paint!

Take care,
Maverick

Keep up with it man. Those shaky hands get old yet? Don't worry man, in theory,
it only gets better. You have my support and I was a smoker too. You will beat
this and you will feel like a paintball god once you do. Keep it up!

Good luck Hollywood....... I wish I could quit!!!!!!! If you make it let me know
and I'll quit also. "Hopefully" Now, think of it as if you make it you get to see
me freak out for 3 weeks after you do.

I offered a guy a case of any brand of paintballs he wanted if he
would not smoke for a  month.  He never even tried.

Man, I hear that.  I used to have a strong caffiene ***ion a couple
years back.  The headaches I used to get felt like a scene from
Hellraiser.

Keep it up.

     Make me the same offer.  It's been six days.  I'm already 20% of the way
there.

Rick:

     Why would I go to the store any buy the patches, when I can go out the the
VA hospital, and they'll give them to me for free.

     However, the patches give me a hell of a headache.  Screw it.  I'm doing
it cold turkey, and I don't need any goddam crutches like the patch or the gum.

     Today was difficult.  I was out covering a tournament down at Hi-Tec
Paintball in Bradenton, and there were a lot of smokers there.  But I did not
weaken.  It's now been six days, and tomorrow night, it will be one full week!

I can't wait to read that review.  "Hard-hitting" probably won't come
close to describing it!  Keep up the good work, Ken!

Hollywood,

One good thing about kicking the habit cold turkey is that because you
went through so much agony to quit, you won't be tempted to start
again.  When I get the urge to smoke (even after 11 years) I just
remember how tough it was to stop.

I tried to quit 4 times but didn't REALLY want to ....
When I finally REALLY decided to quit , that was it !
I still had cravings for 2 years afterwards... not continuous ... They get
less frequent over time.

You just have to know for yourself if your really serious about quitting
or not.
The one thing that helped me finally decide was the cravings themselves...
I thought, man look what this damn habit is doing to me ... these cravings
are controlling me... That was it for me.  I was so disgusted with myself
for being controlled by the  nicotine drug that I made up my mind that
there was no going back, I havn't smoked in 13 yrs.
