Stoped Smoking But !

Recommended Posts

I defiantly feel a little healthier, Coughing a lot less in the morning,

You should also find that your sense of taste and smell is becoming more acute.

Don't worry about the cravings, who is in charge of your body, you or the tobacco leaf? It's a battle of good and evil, good will always win.

The worst is almost over, keep going.

I hope you succeed, Pop!

Cheeky Whippersnapper

(Next time I smoke will be at the crematorium I hope)

Great to hear that you have taken up swimming

Just make sure that you go through a check up with a good doctor

before considering serious cycling.

that's how you do it...

One day at a time.

You'll get over the habbit in no time...

To Continue with the Saga

Nicotine dependency decreasing slowly but

still a problem after meals, when relaxing etc

I have found that changing routine helps i.e.:

Take away or alter the situation + chew pens lots of pens

Starting to enjoy regular swimming, walking until Thursday when I awoke with a Stinking cold,

Alternating streaming nose then blocked, sweating etc etc :D

A real bummer but at least it has taken my thoughts away from smoking.

Amazing how bad smokers smell now !! :o

My thanks to all for encouragement and good wishes. :D

Now back to bed

Cough cough sniff sniff Sympathy please :D

Think on the bright side, at least your cough is not caused by smoking.

Be careful, chewing pens and digesting ink could be just as bad for your health as inhaling cigarette chemicals. :o

I smoke because it's cool :D

Cool to be an addict?

Judging from the wording I presume the poster (MBB) is American

Just thinking how high his hospital bills will be !!!

Smoking Withdrawal Symptoms

Advised to day that the first 25 years are the worst

Thought this was bad news but

That equates to me living to at least 81,

Another good reason not to smoke

you mean in another 5 years it gets even better for me??? :o

The first 3 days are the worst. After that smokes are irrelevant...

I've promised my dad I'd quit as well this week, he's waiting for heart surgery next winter and was told to quit smoking now, he's done after what little is left of his stash is all gone.

I do have vivid memories of those first three days, torture every time I did it cold turkey. The patches helped, I remember the physical need to light up wasn't there, only amental thing in situations where I usually light up.

I've been looking for patches or nicotine gum around here for a few days, nothing, so I still enjoy my smoke knowing it's a matter of days before quitting, today may very well be the last, going to BKK and will look for the patches or gum. My mind is made up on quitting but won't do it without the help of any of those two products. Has worked before with patches. I started smoking again after getting drunk at a party, I hardly ever drink anymore. I'll also quit coffee in the morning as that instantly triggers the urge for a smoke.

Keep it up Ivan!

I found this on Quoes4all.net

I know this won't help but here it goes...

Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world.

I know because I've done it thousands of times.

When I gave up age 40 -50 cigs a day I put the money

I saved on the breakfast table every day,

After a few weeks as the pile grew I felt better and better

and after 6 months I went to my local travel agent and

got a ticket to Thailand.

i stopped smoking december 22nd last year

woke up sunday morning after a heavy night out with friends - only to find a half empty pack of smokes in my pocket and a tight chest - i immediately binned the fags and am quite amazed at how a few beers can turn my (up till now) perfectly strong resolve on its head.. <deleted> is the matter with me? :o

Lots of people swear by Allen Carr:

""The object of this book is to get you into the frame of mind in which, instead of the normal method of stopping whereby you start off with the feeling that you are climbing Mount Everest and spend the next few weeks craving a cigarette and envying other smokers, you start right away with a feeling of elation, as if you had been cured of a terrible disease.""

Brief Up Date :D

Now over two months as a “Non-smoker”, Still miss the nicotine but withdrawal symptoms are gradually decreasing. :o

Still miss first smoke of the day and under stress still go to smoke automatically but just walk instead to clear head and relax. :D

Talking to two Doctors from local Hospital and they told me that withdrawal symptoms can vary enormously and that my problems are by no means unique but maybe rare, Including the cough I have developed since quitting!! (Trust me to be Bl**dy different when not wanted) :D

Not a lot of help but I WILL PERSEVERE

Good luck to all who are trying, please remember:

MENTALLY IT WILL GET BETTER

& Generally Health will improve almost immediately

Regards

:D

I believe the poster who said he smokes because "it is cool" was being sarcastic. That said, Are there any smokers out there who started smoking for a different reason? I have little sympathy for smokers but I do understand or at least have first hand knowledge of addiction, myself being addicted to morning coffee. However I find smokers as a group to be very selfish and inconsiderate. No other group of people seem to think it is fine to throw your garbage anywhere on the street, on the beach, or wherever. In restaurants where smoking is permitted, they will always light up after they eat, all the while knowing the smoke would have diminished their own enjoyment of the meal (but it's ok now once they have finished). Do you know any coffee drinkers who throw their old coffee on the floor? Throw the cups in the street?

In restaurants where smoking is permitted, try eating where smoking is NOT PERMITED they will always light up after they eat, all the while knowing the smoke would have diminished their own enjoyment of the meal (but it's ok now once they have finished). Do you know any coffee drinkers who throw their old coffee on the floor? Throw the cups in the street? NO BUT I HAVE BEEN TO A GREEK WEDDING!!!

O Dear Chin Chin,

I think maybe you have posted on the wrong forum?, :D

This is a forum to help people trying to STOP SMOKING & Not the I want to whinge against smoker’s forum

Maybe you could start a new forum of your own :D

Possibly the No Caffeine or /nicotine for me forum

Or I was a Caffeine Addict forum?

PS You think “It’s cool to smoke post” was being sarcastic!!!!

I can not beleave that a poster hear would stoop so low but thank you for sharing your beliefs;

Please re-read my reply, maybe a little to subtle ? :o

Please also be aware it is a public web site and everyone is entitled to air their views/opinions. No matter how stupid mine may appear to be to you.:D

Good luck with your problems/addictions and keep updating with your program of decaffeinating,

which I find most enthralling. :D

Regards

:bah:
