72 HOURS...that's all you need my friend.
72 Hours and the nicotine drug is gone from your system. Over the first three days this is when you will experience the harsh cravings and the mood
swings as your body rejects the absence of the nicotine.
After 72 hours it is no longer a physical addiction as the body is cleansed of the narcotic. From there it becomes a mental addiction only, and mental
addictions are nothing to kick, just a matter of change in routine.
I smoked for 16 years, a pack and a half daily at my worst. I quit Nov 3rd 2008 and I have not smoked once since.
After the first week I felt good, my sense of smell returned, my taste buds worked again, my breathing became a little easier. After a month I felt
like a whole new person. It was like I had been walking around with the Asiatic flu for 15 years.
For me, I had to get to the point to where I hated being a smoker. I began hating the rancid chemical taste and I began to hate the fact that my
clothes and my nice new car smelled like an ashe tray. I started to think deeply about the fact that I was paying $5 per pack to poison myself and in
reality KILL myself, so that I can put some fat cat at Phillip Morris into a new Mercedes.
I quit cold ass turkey, no aides, no tricks, just me versus the damned cigarette, and I am proud to say that I have won. I now realize how all of the
non smokers in my life used to feel because now the smell of cigarette smoke makes me gag.
You can do it
It is all in your head. Make it through the first 3 days alive and your odds of quitting for good increase 100 fold.
Just remember one thing and that is this - YOU are in control of your decisions.
You do not need or have to smoke.....to quit is nowhere NEAR as difficult as everyone had built it up to be. You just have to be ready and done with
it. You never have to smoke another disgusting cigarette again as long as you live
Just $0.02 from a reformed butt head who has been where you are
