    Angry Quitting Smoking Sucks

    Any tips from succesful no-longer-smokers?

    And er, I may be a bit more than normal for a while...

    Be willing to endure the discomfort, it will get easier and easier. Don't have "just one". Sucking candies (or sunflower seeds) definitely help in the beginning. Avoid drinking until you really have the habit kicked.

    Don't bum em from friends, when I do I start chain smoking again!

    Stay away from them, they will kill you for sure!

    Your lungs and heart are worth more to you than a smoke anyday!

    I've been smoking over 15 years now (which is slightly more than half my life). TG or would get me back up to a pack an evening real quick if old habbits still apply!

    The part that's tough for me right now is the blinding headache and urge to kill anyone that even talks to me.

    I think I will get some seeds soon.

    I've quit twice before. Once when I got strep throat which you just can't smoke through anyway. And another time where I did well for a couple weeks then got sick and decided to be only one kind of miserable instead of two.

    This time I have something else on the line.

    Damn Dumb Stupid Habbit!

    Oh, you've got a much better chance at quitting than you think if something a small as strep stopped you.

    Question

    It is a substance abuse problem, a sickness that will make you sick......

    A drug problem, they have so many substances in them that are addictive, so strong that you will want another one on your death bed, so it is mind over matter, you decide if you want to destroy yourself

    See, I have this fixation with having things in my mouth like a pen, toothpick or whatever, I smoked cloves for a while and when I decided that needed to stop I found toothpicks or anyhting else I could hold in my hand helpful.

    Spend the next two weeks walking around, sitting, and always always always keep both hands on your n*ts. Don't remove them.

    When the urge is strong...squeeze.

    (may make you less disagreeable. may make you more disagreeable.)

    Keep a live video of yourself over the two week period. Send it to the refugee.

    In all seriousness....good luck

    I was doing real well trying to quit myself, and then my wife's hot friend from Italy moved in, and she smokes, so call me a sucker but quiting didn't work out so well this time for me. Moral - stay away from hot women who smoke.
