Greetings DanJF3 - and welcome to the forum. Thanks for mentioning how the taste starts to get disagreeable - you should write that in your quit journal! Wish there was a way to box up the nasty aftertaste to remind us of the bad when cravings kick in.  Also, morning mouth is much better once you get off the smokes.

Get your quitin' tool box stocked up and ready for your forever quit

Juliann,
I haven’t back for a bit. Today was 1 week for me. Yes, I am going cold turkey. I cut back and used lozenges for a bit but I did not count my quit officially started untili stopped all nicotine. How are you doing? I hope you are winning the battle. The only way to stop smoking is to never take another puff. Have you been doing your daily pledge?

On my 3rd day. Just pulled into hotel after 14 hour drive. Was a bit concerned about gas stops (3), but I was actually back on the road before I realised getting a pack didn't even cross my mind. Surprised me. 

Did have a few loud, not for church goer ummm...  conversations with my addiction. Of course it had nothing to say for itself, because it knows I'm right. ;)

Now a 2 hour trek in tug o the mountains for 11 days.... no choice, but not to smoke. Pitty any bear I run across lol.

Congrats Jupiter

I just passed my one year anniversary. Last year at this time I couldn’t even think in terms of weeks or months and definitely not a year!  But the days went by and turned to weeks, then months and finally I have reached a year smoke free. Smoking is just a passing thought now. When I see other people smoking now I feel sorry for them. Smoking truly is a circle of addiction that is only broken when we stop feeding the nicotine monster his “fix”. 

This journey may not be the easiest one you take but it will be the most important one towards a better life. 

I came across this poster online and it really helped me a lot to keep this in mind....,

Welcome Dan and congrats on your decision to get rid of this addiction.  Settle in and read everything you can about this addiction, it will help you tremendously. Post often, stay in touch with all your quit buddies, it keeps you in the right frame of mind. Don't let yourself miss something that will destroy you, rejoice that you are getting free.  Wishing you all the best.
