Stop Smoking, Helping Each Other to Quit

Recommended Posts

"Stop Smoking Project" - Thaivisa.com online self assist programme

JOIN UP NOW - just reply to this topic and stop smoke!

This thread has been established to run a step by step programme over the next few weeks with the objective of trying to help as many smokers as possible become non smokers.

I am not a doctor or hypnotist and do not guarantee success, however I am a reformed smoker who hopes that his experiences will help some one else quit the smoking habit.

The first step is registration; if you would like to join this online programme please submit a post giving your age, sex and brief details of your smoking habit.

Registration will be open only for a limited time, once registration is closed, only registered members will be allowed to make posts within the thread. This is necessary to maintain the continuity of the programme which will follow a pre-determined step by step process and thread rules which the registered members will be asked to follow.

Hi there Malcolm

Please sign me up. I am currently in outback Australia, heading back to LOS in August. I'm 51, smoke 20 a day of 12mg cigarettes, have been smoking since I was 18. Tried without success a few times, using gum (upset my stomach), patches and Zyban.

I lack will-power, that's the honest truth. Instead of paying 25 baht for a packet of L & Ms in Thailand, I am paying $AU12.60 (378 baht) for a packet of 30s.

Any help offered gratefully received.

Peter

Hi Peter,

Welcome to the group, I'm hoping to get at least 6 people to sign up before closing registration and moving on to step 2. Meanwhile please relax, continue your normal daily routine and feel free to make a post any time.

I've been smoking over 30 years and want,need have to quit because they are really getting to me. Smoke a pack a day here In Thailand and smoke even more when out shooting pool and drinking beer. I'm in to give it an honest effort as I've tried everything except hipno and Zyban but would try that also. Got a 16 month old little girl that I want to be around to see grow up and not have her cpy my coughing. Let me know and I'll watch this thread.

Thanks,

Kringle

Hi i'm 31 years old and have been smoking since i was 16. I have given up in the past using patches. But i'm finding it difficult to give up in LOS. So cheap. Sign me up. I have cut down from 20 a day to about 7 a day.

I gotta tell you guys, my closest friend stopped smoking 12 years ago after nearly 50 years of smoming, but now, he's looking at a death sentence. He's been diagonsed with lung cancer. He's well educated (had a Phd) and well respected in his field and loved by his wife, children, and grandchildren, yet he's certainly met his match. I give him 18 months at the most. Most likely he will be in poor shape from the surgery when I return to the U.S. in July, and may not be around when I return again in November. IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN, PLEAS STOP SMOKING. It will me a lot more to your family and friends than it will to you. PLEASE.

No kidding. Andt those guys who promote the tobacco products should burn in ######.

the smoking or the Thai pollution

I can stop smoking and get clean lungs so i can breath in and really appreciate the Thai Bangkok pollution

or

ideally i should move to the beachside and get lots of fresh air, stop smoking and live a full life

or stop everything and die of stress and boredom

gimme a break

I only smoke 3 sticks a day

do i need to give up?

3 a day = 21 a week and 1092 a year x 10 yrs = bad health - think about it !!!

Just for those of you who think its impossible. I smoked for 22 yrs, and next week I'll be a full year without so much as a single puff. :o

Two weeks of patches, and about 20km a day on the bike (not the motorised one).
