smoking

Why did I ever start smoking. Haven't had one for 36 hours now and I'm still dying to buy a pack. Wish I didn't leave my nicotine gum at the office.

It's damn tough to quit... Stay strong.

I've quit chewing a few times, make it a few months and then start up again...

I'll let you in on my secret to getting off of it, as corny as it may sound. When I'm jonesing real bad for a chew, I start praying for the power to overcome it. Asking God for the help gets me through it. Problem is I keep finding another reason in my life to buy a can a few months down the road. To be honest I'm getting ready to go through it again in a few weeks. I'm going to finish out the roll I just bought a week ago and then I'm going to go cold turkey again. My wife hasn't had a cigarette in a week and I'm going to kick it myself too. Last 2 times I quit she kept smoking and I'd break and have a cigarette with her once in a while to "get me by". I think this is a lot of the reason I wasn't strong enough to stay away, and I don't want her using me as an excuse to start smoking again. It's going to suck, I know... But when I think about all the money we spend on tobacco in our house it sickens me too.

Good on ya's for kickin it. I work with guy who quit on day cold turkey after 40 years of heavy smoking. He was on the porch in the winter and realized what an idiot he was. Tossed the smoke on the ground "Fk you! I own you! You don't own me! Makin me sit out here freezin my a$$ off! Waste all my money on nothing...." never smoked again.

Soo, Man up Princess. Your strong aren't ya? 30 years old and a slave to little white sticks? Cummon, don't you have more important things to worry about than a stupid death stick? Go put a diy intake on your truck, do the icp mod, how about a TW or DP with the money you'll save?

I just quit smoking on the 1st, after 12 years it rough. The main reason i quit is because a pack of smokes just went up another dollar ($6.85 now) at a 1-1/2 packs a day that gets expensive. decided that the money i save will go into mods for the trucks... so far its been pretty good, just havent gone out to have a beer yet...

Went out to a bar last night and the only open table was right next to the door so I could see all the smokers outside. That was rough.
