Quit smoking after 17 years!

by sonja

I was able to quit smoking after 17 years.


How did I do it? I Hang around an addict for about a year, and sure enough you will see how ugly addiction is. It easy to not see how bad smoking and addiction is when you are in the middle of it. When you do though hopefully you will decide you no longer want to allow something to have that much power of you! I have not smoked a cigarette since then, that was 3 years ago.

Everybody says the same and it's true, you have to really want it. It's not about trying either. People don't say, I'm going to try and go clean the kitchhen, they say I'm going to clean the kitchen and do it. By saying your going to try to quit, you somewhere have doubt in your mind, and are already setting yourself up for failure. Just QUIT, don't try to!

It's not easy but if you make up your mind that's what you really want to do and commit to doing it you will quit smoking.

Another quitter after 17 years! NEW

On My first day of quitting cigarette after 17 years- Found this web-site where you said 17 years and just felt like writing down some of the feelings.

I was about to go by a cigarette and just to distract myself I took a deep 3 long breaths and open up my laptop and end up on this web-site "Coincidence" or "destination".

I tried quitting before and hold it up until day 5 and due to sever constipation and or for some other excuses that I could make - I started again and that was a year ago and also was a hard time for me due to job layoff. But things haven't changed - If I wait for a favorable time- I might end up waiting until actually I loose my life. So I decided to quit this time not try!

Any Suggestion would be greatly appreciated! Long live my lung :)
