I also don't smoke. Its not type of fashion. It is injurious to health.
I started smoking at 11 years old and quit cold turkey at 34 , it was hard but I kept getting sick and was in the hospital a couple of times and they brought in a priest once ! I ate a lot of lemon drops and other hard candy , as the years went by food tasted better I could walk faster. I did a lot of hiking and enjoyed life more ! vaping is smoking in a different way its still addictive and with all the additives in it you could in the long run do more damage then a cigarette when I see what's being exhaled from your lungs I wonder how much of what remains in them well I guess in 10 or 20 years I guess we will find out . I had a neighbor who was driving his car with an oxygen tank hooked to his nose smoking a cigarette drinking a beer having a moment of pleasure he died at 49 im 76 and having more moments of pleasure , your choice more or less
Well....almost 8 years now! the money that I saved, are right down there on the table - ~$18k. I smoked ~1½ pack a day. Just think about it
You only really need to want to stop. Other than that nothing will help if in your mind you're quiting only because someone said it's bad for you. You have to believe it and want to quit.
Start your week by consuming 10 cigarettes a day for 1 week, and next week 9 cigarettes, and then 8 and so on and so forth, until your body will reject the nicotine itself. I have been a smoke-free for 5yrs now. That's my trick.
Nice typewriters man
My friend is a web developer
Back when we programmed just for fun and not for business, he was also trying to stop smoking and he had this crazy idea.
He created a facebook app where he uploaded this really awkward and shaming photo of himself and established a goal for something you were trying to achieve (in his case, 60 days to quit smoking).
By the end of the 60 days, the app would create a poll among your friends asking something as "Has this person stopped smoking in the last 60 days?".
If "Yes" won, then the app would NOT automatically post his picture for everyone to see, otherwise... the app basically blackmailed him hahaha
He succeeded, by the way. I thought it was brilliant. A little bit weird and dangerous, I must admit, but nonetheless brilliant.
I don't know the name of the app, but I think it's still online
That's not easy... I was a hard core smoker for what, about 15 years? But sometimes even when you try to quit it's too hard, the only thing that actually helped me was a life changing event - the birth of my daughter. When my wife was pregnant I knew I couldn't go around smoking so I HAD to stop. And that's it, with the right motivation everything is possible
after a smoke,eat a chilli!!!! chilli!!! chilli!!!
yep I agreed
