Nonsmoking



Fell at home and completely severed my pelvis bone from the nest it usually cradles in,
and I threw my cigarettes out with all the bathwater and decided to go Cold Turkey.

I have quit and stopped alot of bad habits over my lifetime, but this non smoking life
is really of test of all time to get through.  

I have ranged in emotions from blathering idiot to mumbling crying and to all points in between.

Dalubaba has and continues to be my biggest and best supporter in this life of nonsmoking freedom.

I seriously do not think I could have done even one day without his help and he continues working
in the background even after these 115 days.  And that has made all the difference.

Thank you

Hi there...congrats on 115days.  It is Very difficult to quit smoking, I agree.  It takes a lot of willpower...which you obviously have, otherwise you wouldn't be at 115 days. The emotional aspect certainly takes a toll, but you are almost at 4mos...which for me, was a major turning point.  I hope for you too.  Just remember the way you feel will not be forever, I promise.  I quit cold turkey also.  That was almost 2½ yrs ago.  Just take it one day at a time.  It works.  And the key is to not take even ONE puff.  Check out this site...whyquit (*******).  Stay strong, honey.  Proud of you.  Big Hug!

Thank you so much for your caring wishes.  I never even wanted to quit smoking, but then I got so mad when I found out that my use of tobacco probably led to lower bone health all along.  I said " Never Again", and even in the worst part of the night I still am tobacco and nicotine free.  I used to think I knew everything about a little of everything, but I found out with stopping smoking, that in a lot of cases I can't tell you how to quit smoking, but I can give you all the support I have now inside me.

MYAH

Professor Lin Yutang, writes in his book, that If could quit smoking means you never knew how to smoke. I used to use this sentence for 50 years till I could say good bye to Lady Nicotine.This Chinese philosopher has used it for humor. It is a great achievement of MYAH. There may be many hidden benefits of non smoking.
