Smoking...

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...

there have been a ton of guys on here talking about trying to quit..

my thought is - Can we get a sticky thread where we can check in daily and just say:

 

"bP day 1"

 

"bP day 2"

 

"bp day 3" and so on..

 

encouragement can be given, but more for keeping each other honest and commited to each other?

 

byt the way- today would be my "day 1, again"

If you cant quit cold turkey then I urge you to go vapor its so much better then smoking and none of the consequences that cancer sticks have
