    It's not that easy... part

    of my mind is saying "a few ciggarettes a day won't hurt" and the other's saying "this stuff is really bad for

    you... ect.." The reason it's so hard to quit is because I just started (2 weeks ago?). Is smoking really

    that bad???

    It's how I quit after 15

    years. Rather than saying I'm quiting, say, I don't smoke! It's hard as hell at first but gets easier. Your

    addiction shouldn't be that bad to break now because it's so new, a long term user is supposed to have a much

    harder time.

    Whoa thats a long time... and i'm here worrying about smoking 2-3 "N3wport

    Mediums" a day. And it's only been 3 weeks? Well I guess what everyone is wondering.. how many

    cigarettes/cigars whatever... did you smoke a day, how did it affect your health when you were smoking and how are

    you doing now?

    About a pack a day and it really

    screwed with my wind. I am basically a healthy person and had no health related issues. I quit almost 12 years ago

    now and the lingering effects are long gone.

    I have little sympathy for you, you haven't smoked for long. Just

    quit. Hard candies help a lot.

    Being serious ... it's only as hard as YOUR brain thinks it is, and I

    understand people are different, which means everyone of us has our strengths in different areas in the way we

    handle certain situations. I smoked for 25 years. Stopped for 3 months about the 15 year time frame. On March the

    4th, 2002, I got home from school with six cigarettes left and no funds. I smoked my 6th cig, and started on the

    butts. On 4 March 2002 at 6:30 p.m. I smoked my sixth butt and quit! In August of 2002, that sexy red

    pack of Marlboro's seduced me. I smoked that hot, sexy, beautiful pack, and haven't touched a cigarette

    since!

    Tis hard, but tis do-able. Lace up your shoes tightly, pull your pants

    up high, tighten up your belt, ball up a powerful fist on your strong hand, and give it your BEST shot. Could

    ... it's only as hard as YOU THINK, Sess.

    A good buddy of mine

    tried hypnosis....and it worked. Everytime someone would smoke around him afterward it was almost comical. The

    smell was absolutely revolting to him at first, but after a bit it was like it didn't phase him. He hasn't smoked

    since. I'm really having some personal battles going on in my head (YES, I KNOW, IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD).

    I see every positive behind quitting, but I honestly still enjoy smoking. I know the sheer amount/type/etc of

    women that one could choose from would also go up 10 fold if I was a non-smoker, but then my "demon" side (you know,

    that little devil on your shoulder?) starts saying, "yah, but there's lots of women who smoke too!" Some of the

    hottest 8's, 9's, and 10's that I know are smokers...but there's a lot more who aren't.

    I absolutely

    admire people who quit smoking. My dad smoked for over 30 years (I'm coming on 10 years myself) and he quit. He

    was kinda forced to though. He was bit by a dog and the doctor didn't get the wound cleaned out properly. It got

    infected and he was laid up in the hospital for a month. (It was really a bad situation). They had to remove most

    of the muscle from his forearm only to find out they still didn't kill the infection. Anyways, he was laid up in

    the hospital and couldn't smoke...I sometimes think that bite was a blessing in disguise.

    If you've never

    smoked, never tried to quit, or are one of those narrow minded individuals who get a kick out of harrassing smokers,

    you have no idea of the iron fist that smoking holds you under. I know that quitting smoking most

    likely be the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life, but I also think it will feel the most rewarding of

    anything I've ever done too. I will quit...sometime.

    P.S. - Studies have now shown, harrassing a

    smoker about their smoking now poses a great risk to their health!

    I quit smoking a long

    time ago, back when you didn't have all the support, aids and knowledge about how to make it easier. It was hard to

    do! It was also well worth it. My reasons were my own and until I had those reasons I couldn't quit either. When

    you can find something strong enough to motivate you you'll quit. These anti-smoking nazis aren't going to help

    you. They think they are helping by being a pain in the backside but all they really do is make offensive asses of

    themselves and encourage the smokers to fight them harder, ignore them.

    Good luck to you. It isn't easy but

    you'll be happy that you did.

    Bel', how did you quit? Plain

    old cold turkey? That's gotta be tough, but its probably the way I'll try to go when I finally find my personal

    motivation to quit.

    I took a six day backpacking

    trip with a group of non-smoking friends through the high sierras and didn't take cigarettes with me. They told me

    that they never worried about bears on that trip because I would have chased it down and torn it apart with my

    teeth. I was just a little short tempered but it worked. By time I got back most of the craving was gone.

    That's a hell of an idea. I don't know if I have many non-smoking friends who would be free or

    willing to take such an adventure. I kinda feel limited by my resources in terms of what methods I could try to

    quit.

    In my case, it was an

    opportunity at the right time. I've made a lot of those excursions but used this one to my advantage. The point is

    to get completely away from cigarettes for about a week. If they aren't available you can't cheat, right? Look for

    a way to avoid the chance to smoke for a week. By then the worst of it should be over.

    Why the hell did you

    start?

    I'm always curious why people make such dumb choices. It's not meant as an insult, I'm just curious

    about the thought process.

    How old are you? Statistics show that if a person doesn't start smoking by the

    age of 19, i's almost 100% that they'll never start.

    It may be only 3 a day now, but several years from now

    it will be a pack. Do you think that smokers start right off smoking a pack a day? I've seen it happen many times.

    I had a friend that only smoked when he drank, that lasted for about a year. Then he was up to 1/2 a pack a day

    before he came to the conclusion that he was being a nucklehead.

    My almost 21 yr old little brother

    picked up smoking. He figures as long as he's smoking only what others give him, he's not addicted. As in if he's

    not buying packs of cigs for himself.

    I don't know about that statistic.

    But who knows, maybe that doesn't

    factor in stoners. My little brother is a big stoner, and started smoking dank before 19. Maybe it's alittle bit of

    a gateway thing into cigarettes too.

    Sometimes over analysing can be

    your worst enemy when it comes to motivation. Do the courageous thing and just do it.

    I have respect for anyone

    that quits, I wish more of my friends were the same.

    You need to quit and have to be strong enough to take this decision because your will power counts a lot on this decision and do take because it is bad for health.

    Default Hi

    Smoking is a deadly addiction. It is not so difficult to get rid of this but some people just don't have the stamina to fight back. I would like sharing a quote here which I found at quoteocean.com:
    "The best way to stop smoking is to just stop – no ifs, ands or butts".

    You are absolutely right. Hey, listen carefully. Smoking never helps. Understand it carefully. Only a better understanding of how harmful it is for your life can save your life.

    smoking cigarette contain nicotine,nicotine is very toxic and vasco constrictor substance which tightens the blood vessels and block the blood flow which may causes damage in arteries,since man erection will not be possible due to lack of blood flow,which is called as sexual dysfunction.

    Smoking does not have good benefits at our health.
    The worst thing that could happen to a person is when he could not escape the addiction in smoking because
    I personally knew some people who could not make it through a day without smoked a 3 packs of cigarette.

    Smoking is a very fatal vice, as much as possible, please avoid it, if you cannot, just lessen the usage then eventually stop it.

    Hi Sesshoumaru,
    Some effective tips for you to kick smoking.
    Set a quit day and make it special for you. Ask your friends and family to support you and avoid going to places where you might found smokers. Do not buy cigarettes, keep money you would spend on cigarettes in a saving jar and plan for a treat tomorrow. Do start some sport, exercise or any physical activity.

    Very good advice.

    Thanks for all the thoughtful posts,

    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
