I quit almost 2 years ago. 21 year smoker 4 packs per day. I quit cold turkey and haven’t looked back.

Im cold turkey as well. The saving grace is that after I eat triggers my cigarette cravings. Not eating (PreOp diet) is making it easier. [emoji4]

I got the gum and it did help a lot but I went back for a little bit. My surgery is next week. Now that I have a date I refuse to smoke another. My trigger is coffee SO I will not be having coffee in the morning again.
This is way harder than I thought (quitting) good luck!


Surgery Date 10/28/2017
So I woke up in the middle of the night and had a massive craving for a cigarette. I didn't smoke though. Thankfully, I had thrown them all away!
Yesterday (Day 1 PreOp Diet AND Day 1 quit smoking) was ROUGH! The hunger pains were the worst! So bad that I hardly noticed how much I wanted to smoke. I think this liquid diet is going to be super helpful to quit smoking. I drank more Fluid every time the hunger pains were bad.
I do think it's weird that I haven't gone into ketosis yet. I have the Keytone Test Strips and it was negative as of a few minutes ago. I had 2 Premiere Protein Shakes, At least 90 oz. of sugar free drinks, 8 oz. beef broth, 1 sugar free Jello, 1 Oikos Triple Zero vanilla yogurt, 2 Sugar Free Chocolate puddings.
At around 8:00pm I was so hungry and I was shaking like a leaf! I ate one bite of shredded chicken breast (1-2 tsp?). That took away the shakes after about 20 minutes and I was able to fall asleep around 10:00pm.
I woke up this morning and did my Tespo Vitamin shot and drank a Premiere Protein Shake. Here's hoping today is easier than yesterday!!!! Im about 1/4 way through a 32 oz. Powerade Zero.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
