Re: Quitting smoking... day one

I used to smoke. I still do but, I used to too.....

I have quit a few times for years at a time. After that first week or so you forget about them.

Ive quit a few times, for various amounts of times. I seemed to have an easier time of it then, but I wasn't as serious as I am this time. SO many people die from cancer, and I don't want to do that to my kids....

thats good motivation, my dad died of COPD, a kind of lung failure becuase of smoking, the hell my brother and i went through 2 weeks before he died, cant be described. wishing that he will somehow pull through, then, 2 days before christmas he was gone.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Quitting wasn't the hard part for me, it was doing all the stuff I used to do while smoking that drove me nuts. I always had to have a smoke on the way to work and the way home. When I quit, it always seemed like I was forgetting something. Taking break at work really sucked, it bored the hell out of me for the first couple of days and for about the next month I just worked through break so I didn't want to have one.

Good luck Trev, it's a b**ch in the beginning but you will soon get over it.


Gotta love the 80's and 90's, when a simple smile could get you laid. That same smile now gets me pepper sprayed and a karate chop to the throat.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Good luck ive done it in the past , but its my only addiction besidea this . The wife is after me to quite but its very hard .  Dont mean to preach but you really have to turn it over to a force greater then yourself and ask for strenght when needed . Also dont babysit the desire IT WILL PASS  . It was easier for me to give up the drugs after 20+yrs of abuse - asked for help and 1 day the desire was gone.  But i still cant seem to leave the smoking  good luck to you remember just dont smoke TODAY dont worry about tomorrow  and the days will turn to weeks and the weeks to  months and so on .

I believe there is no force greater than a persons own mind. I am doing it for myself, by myself. As soon as you try and convince yourself it is out of your hands, and in the hands of a greater force, you have lost, as you have deferred responsibility. The only people that can change anything, and do it successfully, are ourselves. I appreciate the words of encouragement tho, every comment here has helped me so far.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Wise words from a 13 year old. smile

You can do it Owl, you totally have the right mindset already.

As for quiting smoking by smoking a bowl.....stupidest thing I've ever heard on the subject, like I dont drink beer anymore I just do a shot of whiskey when I feel the urge. hmm

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Best of luck to you Trevor. I quit smoking cold turkey about 6 years ago and I am very happy now that I did and so is my wife and daughter. The first few days and maybe weeks are tough but it gets easier everyday after. You seem like a guy who is head strong and can get it done. Keep yourself busy and remeber you can do anything you set your mind to. smile

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

good luck...I have quit "things" in life, crutches are hard to walk without...but you will be stronger without them.

Metallica, believe me when I tell you, I have only been disappointed in my 22 year old son once, it was when he started smoking...don't put the people you love through that.


If something I say offends you I would like to sincerely appologize, but please realize I am a complete stranger to 99.9% of you and as such should hold no real power over your emotions. Have a great day ladies and gents and try not to forget to keep life in perspective  :^P

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

It's easy, you just have to really want it.  If you're not dead set on quitting don't BS yourself.  I stopped cold turkey 2.5 years ago and haven't looked back.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Well I made a promise to myself to get in better shape this year. I now have a good bike, and quitting smoking is step one of the plan. Once that is done (and the rest of my parts show up) I will be riding my bike daily. Whenever I feel like I could smoke, I will go ride. I want to drop 15- 20 lbs, to basically my ideal weight, and I think i'll be able to do it without too much hassle. I don't eat that bad really, but i've become pretty lethargic, and I know smoking has a hand in that as well.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

you have the right attitude. if you truly want to quit you will. there is always an excuse to light up again, just stay strong. 15 years smoke free and up until a couple of years still had the cravings. it is long battle but you can do it.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Grandfather started smoking Lucky Strikes in WW2, and continued up until the late 70's when he threw his new pack onto the coffee table and never touched another again. My Grandmother however continued and died from the results in the early 90's. Everyone is wired differently from one another so it's hard to give advice. I guess just look at the situations where you are prone to light up and and try to do something else instead. My wife always lit up after sex, and has now been smoke free for years. I'm pissed.

Good luck man, best thing you can do for yourself.   And think of all the bike stuff you can buy with that smoke money.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

good luck to you.

im myself have been beating the idea into my head lately on quiting. the truth is i really dont like the new FSC (fire safe cigs)
when im riding i can get winded pretty easily and i dont like that. plus i think of all the money i can save that could go to other things. i cant really afford them now as is.
all the bike parts i could buy if i quit............i smoke about a pack a day so thats almost 40 bucks every week......
maybe ill start chewing on straws or something.

Re: Quitting smoking... day one

Guys, im on day four, and I have to tell ya, I already feel WAY better, less congested, etc. I feel like im sweating crap out, but I am feeling more energetic already. Im super optimistic now, and am getting excited. This is the first step of my physical makeover, and im feeling pretty good about my chances of succeeding. The key is, if you are going to try and quit, just quit.... dont drag it out.... the sooner you try, the better. Im here for whatever help you need!
