Smoking...

50 posts in this topic

Quit being a puss and just quit already. I quit cold turkey 7 years ago. Every time I wanted a cigarette, I tried to rage in a positive way, not always successful I might add. It was mostly through exercise, I really didn't want a cigarette after barreling down the street as fast as I could, or doing sit-ups until I couldn't muster another one. I looked at diseased lungs online and people who had holes in their throats. I imagined what life would be like if i were in that position.

This is my opinion and I'm sure others will disagree and that's fine.. I think giving yourself nicotine while you're trying to quit smoking is comparable to giving a heroin addict prescribed doses of heroin and expecting him to quit heroin. Its possible that he might quit that way, but I highly doubt it. People say they cant quit without some kind of help, its not true, don't sell yourself short, don't give in to it, you are more powerful than some stupid, pathetic cigarette.   

you should work the suicide hotline...caller " I want to die",   LIG " QUIT being a PUSSY and and do it!!"

lol

 

People are given a drug to quit heroin that is much safer then heroin btw

 

 

but seriously not  everyone is built the same and addiction is not a one size fits all deal.

 

 

cold turkey has the largest fail rate but congratz to you that you could do it.

Cold turkey works fantastic.

It's truly mind over matter.

If you truly want to quit, then quit. Yes it's hard. If it was easy, nobody would smoke.

The first two weeks is the hardest.

If ya truly don't want to quit, then it won't work.

I didn't say i didn't fail, I tried quitting for 3 years prior. I even stayed quit for an entire year once and then one day bought a pack and smoked it all that same day. I can tell you, once you have made up your mind that you are going to smoke, you will smoke. I've been there, I know what it's like, I know how you feel.  I got to the point when the worry over trying to quit smoking was killing me, I really wanted to stop. I wanted to not smoke more than I wanted to smoke and my 5 year old at the time begging me to not smoke was killing me.  That was my turning point.

A friend of mine at work is doing very well quitting with one of those. No matter what anyone says it can not be as bad as smoking. I had to use the gum when i quit. I chewed the gum for about a month than i had no more desire for it.

I need to jump on this bandwagon again.. Unfortunately I have been drinking heavier than normal, which means Im smoking more too. I see the red flags that Im putting up for myself, sometimes it doesnt matter. Last night was the 1st night in the last 3+months that I didnt consume a 12pack, didnt smoke nearly as much either... 

 

LiaG's advice is solid, regardless....

My Mom smoked for 50 years.

In the space of 2 weeks she was totally on Ecigs.

Getting her to start using the less Nicotine filled refills now and she actually believes there is a light at the end of the tunnel and can put this addiction behind her.

 

*fingers crossed*

If you have had 12 or more beers everyday for three plus months you should really talk to someone about that. You have a problem my friend.

I accept that... We are talkin a 6hr+ period with dinner. I'm not drinking to get drunk, when my bottle's empty I grab another, then repeat. But this is 2 nights without & tomorrow's poker, I play better sober... I do have a problem but at this point my alcohol consumption is not it. Continue like this & it probably will be, but I got this...
