Giving up smoking again!

Starting today, I'm going to try and give up.

I gave up for a year until a couple of months ago when I started again.
I'm treating it as a blip and am determined to stop again!
I haven't had one today so far. I'm going to be irritable as hell though!

So please, spur me on, and if I have a cigarette, someone please come and hit me with a wet fish.
:D



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

I need to give up too!




There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

It's actually easier than you think, believe me. The key thing is absolute mental determination - without that nothing. If you really want to do it you can. There are millions of reformed smokers out there, all of whom gritted their teeth and went for it; they were not some sort of super human creatures, just ordinary people like you and I.

Smoking is highly dangerous - I lost three friends to lung cancer (13 times as many smokers die of it as do non-smokers and it's a highly unpleasant way to die). It's also ridiculously expensive. But it's obviously highly addictive.

Final word of advice: once you've started to stop (Irish!) don't be tempted to allow yourself "just one more". Stop cold turkey - either you're a smoker or you're not. There are no half measures.

Guess how I know so much about it? But it really is possible. Good luck!

Tony.




Never surrender.

2 weeks ago today after 10 years of smoking I decided I had had enough and put my cigarettes where they would be hard to get to. I haven't gone back to them except to throw them out. I don't miss it at all and won't be going back.

You need to quit because you really want to not because you think you "should"

Good luck Beckie if I can do it anyone can!

Thanks for the encouragement everyone ^.^

Lana, you are only allowed to hit me with a wet fish if I have a ciggie, not before

Well done to all the people who have given up and trying to give up! :D

Mike. That is a rather appropriate meme!

Thank you :)

Yeah, I wasn't too worried about Lana and her lighter. I've had rather a lot of experience with fires and I seem to have become desensitised ;p
She wouldn't have done it anyway *pokes*

Nah, I'm way too scared of you to even try to. :P

Well, I managed ok last time. Although I wasn't allowed outside for months so that probably helped! XD

Maybe chuck out everything that reminds you of smoking? That helped one of my friends.

Thank you! Those are good suggestions. I'll get rid of my lighters :)

Its a bit of a routine. Get up, have a cigarette, get to train station, get off train, get off bus etc.
I know that medically, smoking doesn't help stress, it actually raises your blood pressure. So the logical thinking might help. Also, after 3 days, the physical addiction is gone and its purely psychological, so that thought could help too!

Good luck Beckie! I quit smoking a couple months ago and although I have had the occasional slip-up since then, for the most part I've managed to stay away from them. As you know already it's tough, but you can do it!
