Title pretty much says it for itself, I've been a smoker for about 12 years. I would smoke about 12-15 cigarettes a day. Never knew why I smoked in
the first place
I guess I was just being rebellious and just didn't care at the time I started (around highschool).
So I have been smoke free for 7 days. I know alot of people would be like that's not that long but I no longer have the cravings and I'm not going
back. I've been trying to quit for a long time but never had any success. I would try by cutting down on my smoking, which never helped at all really
I would just start right back up after a while. The electronic cigarette is a really good way to stop smoking for all you smokers but it still puts
nicotine into your body, which can lead to heart problems.
My friends ask me how I quit cold turkey and I didn't really have an answer. I just told them that it's just a choice. When it comes down to it,
it's all in your head (the addiction). So I told myself I was going to stop smoking right now, got the ash trays out of sight and threw everything
away. Stay away from other smokers too by the way. Smoking is if you actually think about it....suicide...because you are actually killing yourself
willingly. So if you are a christian (I am not) and you smoke, just think what God will do to you when you die from smoking which would be suicide in
So to conclusion, yup I quit
and I urge everyone else to quit also. You only live once, why would you want to shorten your life? Ever since I
quit my sense of smell has increased dramatically. You smokers just don't realize how bad you smell
The secret to quitting is you just have to
choose not to smoke and alot of people will say well I get the cravings...yes they will be there but you just have to choose not to smoke and go out
and do something keep your mind off it. Keep trying and you can crack the hold it has on you, you just have to want it bad enough.
