hey a hot tip for you that I'm gonna try. saw my doctor today(who just quit smoking too BTW) anyway an oncologist he knows gave him a tip. said to drink decaffeinated green tea for help with the cravings, he said it does help his...so I got some and gonna give it a try too......oh and a bonus, it helps with flatter abs too(so I've heard). :-)
I quit a little over a year ago. I was a little snappy for a day or so but it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
You are stronger than a cigarette....you can do this...its not that bad!
Keep your hands and your mind busy.
@opus88............Well that is twice I've been told about green tea, and yes I have some. Also there are teas that help with the nerve endings........I'll have to get my book out and do some reading.I have a shelf of herbal teas.
@addict3........I am also a recovering addict... 26 years clean. Getting clean was easier because of all the support I had, and the drugs were seeking to kill and destroy my life..............Now ,if I could wrap my brain around the fact that cigaretts are doing the same............Today is better.......I didn't wake up fighting that morning cigarette....................Yea
Looking forward to all the day has to offer...........I don't smoke in the house but next week I am haveing the house Spring Cleaned................
Very simply................I smoked again. I smoked for 2 days and threw the rest away. They tasted ashy and burned the inside of my mouth. Now it will be interesting to see how I rebound from all this..............I was fine on the day I smoked, it was the couple of days leading up to it..............No excuses. I can't make the world stop in order for me to get clean.
I'm not feeling any major side effects from what I smoked...........only freedom. I don't have to pick up today and that feels good.
This is my pattern I talked about....10 days smoke.....15days smoke......8 days smoke......11 days smoke..... I have been doing this since January....................Merry-go-round!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing MERRY about it.
So I am on day 1 again....................
dont give up trying, no matter how many times, there will be a time you do make it!! its nearly 3 months for me, very hard ! but getting easier all the time! have you tried the "WHY QUIT" site, its what got me through , just google it, good luck!
It sounds like you just enjoy smoking? So do I. But they will kill me so I went cold. New Years Eve. I have had my temptations of course, and at this point it is simply not taking that first puff. If I go ahead and do that, Im back full time. You can do this, just dont give up. You just dont have that mindset yet. I think I quit 20 times before this one and I am only 6 months out, but the more time under the belt the more the mind over matter thing works. I dont want to go thru withdrawl ever again.
