Stop Smoking, Helping Each Other to Quit


Recommended Posts

Been smoking tooooo... long, 15 to 20 a day since I was 16 and now I'm 44.Gave up for 1 year before coming to Thailand. Cheap smokes, going to pool bars and drinking more than normal didn't help increase consumption of the dreaded cancer sticks. Not looking for excuses for my weakness.

It's time to give up.

'Sign me up, Scotty.'

Hi! Add me please. I'm 34 yo male, smoke 17 years, now at about 30 cigs a day. Tried to quit 3 times - tried gum :o , patches, and most recent tme - Zyban :D - it worked!!!....for 3 months, and now I'm back. It's a love-hate relationship I have wth cigs - regretfully it seem to last a looooong time.

32 here, about 10 cigs a day. On and off for the last 10 years.

Can control myself during the day, but as soon as there is a beer around...have to run for a packet.

I played decent level sport all my younger days, I smoked and was always breathless and gasping after a workout. At 42yo after seeing my best friend have open heart surgery, I stopped smoking and took up jogging to avoid an increase in weight, 12 months later I ran a 3hr 10 min marathon, I can only say one thing about smoking " DONT".

I am 58, from 1-2 packs per day for about 8-years, a few years after I moved to Thailand. Stopped once after a doctor prescribed some pills (found out later they were anti-depressants with significant side effects even though the doc said there were none).

The curious thing is after starting the regime for three months I had absolutely no interest or missed smoking, never figured out why I started again.

This is very simple actually.

Just send the whole group to a poor run down hospital room full of old men dieing of emphysema.

That will drive the point home.

I was trapped in a room all night with 11 other old men in that condition and believe me it was no party.

Watching the doctors cut open the throat of one old man and insert a tube while his whole family was surrounding him only for the man to die shortly after words was quite an experience.

If you still want to smoke after you see this then you are just suicidal and the group should offer a loaded gun to get thing moving a little faster!

I support all people to either stop smoking or at least only do it inside their own homes only!

And only if no children are living in the house only too!

Other wise you are just a selfish suicidal ass hole and should be taken out in the back forty and shot fair and square!
