No pictures of lungs please. I get it.
But they look SO GOOD:
It really depends. How are you quitting, and how bad is your desire to actually quit?
The patch was a miracle for me. I'd put it on and I wouldn't get physical cravings. That left the triggers (coffee, driving, break times, etc.) to overcome and the only thing you can do is willpower. If you used to go outside and smoke during a break, do something else.
Biggest thing is stick with it. Don't lapse and smoke, and then use that as an excuse to start again.
Don't buy cigarettes and realize that every time you bum a cigarette from someone, they hate you a little on the inside.
David Bowie never quit and he is doing great
Dropped my oldest kid off at college 3 years ago. Damn near had a panic attack, quit that day! Haven't had one! never will!
And this is really something I want to ditch.
I'll call it my #patchingpurpose.
Maybe I can make some marboes.
You're in for a better life where you're not tethered to a gross nicotine delivery device. Keep thinking about that as you crave those smokes. Every time you get the urge to buy smokes, pull that money out of your wallet and keep it in a jar. You'll be amazed by how much you're saving.
Just quit cold turkey.
If you really want to quit, you'll never have another smoke again.
I quit 10 years ago. Few days of discomfort.
Imagine what I could do with my smoke money? It could be fun.
I craved cigarettes for another 9 months. Now after 9 years if I smell a cigarette and coffee it brings back good memories. I know better then to ever pick one up. I'm sure I'd buy a carton that day. Best of luck to you.
P.S. This was 4th attempt at quitting.
3 days of shit, 1 week of irritation, then 3 weeks of being annoyed every now and then. after that month, it's not that tough.
wiggy related cause he sucks fags too
only the other kind and he don't wanna stop
Reality is always a good dose of reality.
Buy this book:
It basically tells you to keep smoking. Tells you, basically - fuck you, this book is going to make you quit, keep smoking the whole time you read it, because, fuck you, you will quit.
Oddly enough. I quit. It has been YEARS. Killed a pack a day habit - I don't even recall what the book was about - just that it told you to keep smoking all you wanted - and BOOM. It was over.
Worked for me.
Try it. Couldn't hurt.
First week is rough, more just getting beyond all the habits and rituals around smoking than the nicotine withdrawal. It'll be a challenge, but don't buy into the "toughest thing you'll ever have to do" nonsense.
All this talk about quitting will psych you out. You don't need to over analyze it. Only you can physically take a cigarette, light it and put it in your mouth. Don't do that.
The people around you will hate life for two weeks.
I can deal with the first th
that, I can do.
Ok, but you're not going to be cool anymore.
