Ive decided to stop smoking as of immediate effect, and decided the best thing I can do as I decided was to post on Goodlookingloser Forum to keep me accountable for this devious act!!
To me it feels like death!! I need all the support I can get!!! Just to give you a idea, I stopped for about a year and I met this girl who convinced me to smoke you know..... which caused me and my 7 year relationship to end (Im greatfull for this as I would have never found GLL, and now that we split I see what an ugly person she actually is) Love is blind when p*s is kind
Soooooo... The doctor where I work, told me 20 minutes ago that I stink of smoke... Shocking.. Shes a woman so I take it all woman who don't smoke think alike... Gotta stop guys.. Need support
Problem is im in Mozambique.. Working in the middle of nowhere at this stage.. best place I think I can stop.. work load is getting less and so is the stress.. If I really cant stop, I will go for the Chantix once im back in SA for my little holiday.
I will keep you guys posted on how it goes though.
If Chantix is not an option and you can't quit, transition to something less harmful, like American Spirit cigs or cigars (no inhaling). These will help you wean off the other chemicals in cigarettes while maintaining the manual-oral habit and some of the nicotine.
I do have a box of cigars on standby!! I haven't smoked yet - im being held accountable.. I nearly succumbed to the craving earlier.. First thing that went through my mind was the embarrassment of telling the world I had failed... I posted it on this forum and on BB.com so I truly am being held up for this..
So I finally quit smoking after several attempts. Chantix works excellent, however, I started up a year or so after that attempt and my biggest success was due to those electronic vapor machines. Buy a good one that you add oil to. The real feature of these is when you do fail you don't smoke a whole cigarette. You just take a puff puff. That's what you need when you're having a nic fit. Not a whole smoke that bumps your nicotine level way up and activates your reward center, you just want to continually kill cravings until you don't have them anymore. Stay strong.
So today is day 3 - Everything seems to be going well - I haven't had a severe crash nor have I ripped anyones head off.. I have increased my gym time though and ive added a little extra cardio.. Doing fine
I know it's cliche to say this but quitting smoking was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. But after several attempts, I finally asked my doctor who prescribed Chantix. As the others have confirmed, this is by far the best option. I had smoked for more than 30 years so it was a part of me and to quit was a huge hill to climb. I found that after 3 days of taking it that I didn't have the physical need as the Chantix builds up in your system. The most difficult part was the mental aspect of it. I like to have a few beers on a Friday/Saturday to relax and enjoy myself but smoking was always going hand and hand. I used anything that I could get my hands on to eat like gummy bears, almonds, celery/carrots. It's a trade off but eventually you'll get past the point of not lighting up. THAT is how you will beat it.
Keep us posted on your progress.

Not smoking day number 5 now.. Not using any tablets for this except for a vitamin B replacement - the lack of energy is driving me nuts!!!! Might be because of the waking up earlier to pushups thing but all in all this is working just fine for me

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
