Yep Steve, that's the usual scenario....  I quit CT in '80.... what kept me from lighting up was when I wanted a ciggy, I put my running shoes on and did a few miles....  worked ! !

Go Up « previous next » Go Down

Well I fell off the wagon and back on again a number of times but I'm still trying! I keep telling myself the money I'm spending on this nasty habit is a shiny new bike Wheels
In some cases like mine it just means I'm able to put gas in my truck to get to work to keep things going. And helps to have gas for the bike too!  Wheels

I have known people that just decided to quit and never smoked again, but most people take several tries...I have know a few that took 9 or 10 tries.  Just keep trying!!!
I don't even really like the smell of them anymore...I quit cold turkey but I know everyone is different. My wife is doing very very well for someone who smoked years and years more than I did. She still has one every now and then. I can tell b/c I smell it but I thinks she thinks she is sneaky.  are you real

Anyways, just keep on thinking bout that new bike you could be buying or anything else you want/need.

I for one am not gonna preach about cancer and what not b/c I believe if you're gonna get it you're gonna get it just may make it come faster.

I have 3 main reasons for quitting.
1. Myself-Just didn't like it anymore and what it was doing to me physically/mentally.

2. Money-Those things are getting really expensive!

3. My Family-I know I could die of natural causes or an accident but it's just one less thing.

I still have not quit. I cut back, but then pick it up again like crazy till I fuss at myself to cut back again. I really want to quit, but it's more out of boredom and habit.  BangHead

So out of all the attempts at quitting posted, only one survived and lived to tell about it ?  (oooops, sorry!  Poor choice of words there)

So for those of you who tried and didn't get past boot camp, are you still thinking about returning to the front lines and giving it another shot ?    icon_thumright
