So this will be my third and final attempt at quitting smoking. And i know this one will last because i'm just at my wits end. I can't stand myself every time I light up.
My father smoked 2 packs a day for 5 years, my mother smoked 1 pack a day for 10, and my grandmother a pack a day for 30 years. They all quit cold turkey, and i will be doing the same. The last time i quit it lasted 4 months, and i honestly don't know why i started up again. I didn't even feel the need to, I just did it.
But I'm gonna be 26 in September and it's just time for me to not be "that guy" anymore. None of my friends smoke, and I constantly get shitted on for doing so. So that should help. I'm gonna be quitting alcohol completely for a couple of weeks, going to exercise more regularly and continue my weight training program. Today I have rationed myself off. I've only smoked one cigarette, since i've been up at 6 am, and i feel pretty good. Just doing increments that get longer and longer till i finish this pack today. What helped me last time was everytime i felt the urge to smoke or felt like poo, I kept reminding myself that cigarettes were the cause of this.
Does anybody else have anymore tips?
