Okay okay, I'm probably the umpteenth smoker who has started a thread on thumped about giving them up (which I have).

From 20 a day, to zero.

Anyone else give them up for New Year's?

wanna form a support group?

I find I have an unbelievable urge to gnaw at my bedposts like a hamster. Anyone other quitters experience this?

I will report back honestly if/when I fail. Until then, this is my last word on it, because it seems that coming on to this thread only serves to remind me of the blimming things!!!!!!!

Wouldn't say going from 20 a day to none is really that good on your system. Holistically, like.
Arra, it's not so bad...I'm gonna spout some Allan Carr stuff here*, but you sleep through the withdrawal pangs every night of your life, they're not so bad, really.




*Allan Carr stuff is very cheesey, but it can work, SRSLY.

Not there. There.
Look,

I'm all for an individual doing whats best for them. I am. I commend your decision to attempt to quit smoking. And i'm not setting out to deliberately ruin your thread; but the fact remains:

Smoking is cool; and cigarettes are the best friend you'll ever have.


I'm sorry.

i'm the best at giving up the smokes. i do it every week
I think I could rival you for that title.

I haven't wanted a cigarette for a week now. I go through phases. This could last another few days, or up to 2 years.

quit on the 1st of January took them back up on the 3rd when I realized how many exams I was fucked for. I said I'd quit after the exams so we'll see. I've cut down from about 15 a day to 6 or 7 in the mean time.

I had my first in six or seven years over the christmas, I'm very tempted by more. Is it true that one spliff is as bad as twenty smokes if so I reckon I can't safely have a few hundred smokes a week and not do any more damage than I'm already doing.

every drag of a cigarette is 5 minutes off your life.

Flow gently, sweet Afton! amang thy green braes,
Flow gently, I'll sing thee a song in thy praise;
My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream,
Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her dream.
