    King of the Ring March 14th

    I am going to make attempt number 4 at quitting cigarettes.

    Been smoking like a champ for almost 20 years now and its really really taking its toll on me lately.

    I have also been watching someone very close to me battle cancer and its reminds me more and more that I ain't that far away if I keep it up.

    Shit, I may even take some time away from here when I quit because honestly..........I am going to be a royal asshole for some time. I have a serious love/hate relationship with smokes. I have some deep issues like you all do and cigarettes have always been one of the things that I could always count on being there when I needed it. I know the feeling of quitting and I know how uncomfortable it is. But honestly I don't want to die in 20 years because I wasn't tough enough to stand up to this ridiculous habit.

    I may suceed, I may fail. I am just kinda pumped that I am giving it a shot again. My plan is to try the Chantix. I have tried cold turkey as well and another time the patch. Neither one worked. I did go 40 days cold turkey once, but that was 2.5 years ago.

    Also, for anyone that says "Just quit" or "All you have to do is just not smoke ever again", then fuck you. haha. Clearly you have no idea what the word addiction means. Look it up. It can really fuck with some people. I know first hand. (also, bear in mind I don't use it as an excuse. In fact I am ashamed at times my dna is faulty like that) There is alot of addiction in one side of my family tree and I have lost some family members to drugs and alchohol. I don't tell alot of people shit like this so this is like my one thread a year where I open up.

    The bad part is that I really love smoking. I am fucked.

    My Dad smoked for over 50 years and quit cold turkey. His motivation was that he had to have a surgical procedure and during it his lungs almost shut down. After he recovered he never smoked again.

    It's tough, but keep in mind all of the positives of quitting.

    Good luck DD.

    I think we should make March 14th the day we ALL quit smoking. I swear to you, on March 14th I am going to try and quit with you. Good luck to the both of us.

    Thanks and for the record I have never smoked a cigarette in front of either of my children. I think my 8 year old is picking up on the smell though.

    My mom got emphazeema (awful spelling I know) and after she was hospitalized she quit cold turkey, 4 months strong.

    She was smoking for over 30 years.

    I solemnly swear I am up to no good

    I think, as long as you're giving smoking up, kill two birds with one stone and quit lost.

    Cudoezz to you guys though. Good luck and stay strong. Smoking is so bad for you. You will thank yourselves later.

    Now let's not get ridiculous SS.

    Seriously though, good luck with it man (and indeed, anyone that decides to join in with it). I've never taken up smoking, but have smoked. I am very lucky that I don't have an addictive personality when it comes to that kind of thing, my biggest addiction is entertainment (TV, film, internet, music, etc...) and tea.

    I'll admit to not looking overly forward to it though, as I can imagine this place may become a little tense for a while. Haha!!

    Re: March 14th

    Best of luck to you Dan. It's funny I read this thread today. My mom sent me an e-mail this morning telling me she's on day 3 of trying to quit smoking. Bars and restaurants here in Michigan will begin the no-smoking ban on May 1st, so she isn't too happy about that. She's smoked for over 30 years now....I understand from watching her try to quit how difficult it can be.

    Maybe if you feel the urge to smoke, just chew gum instead? I dunno, it worked for a buddy of mine.

    Re: March 14th

    I'll think about giving it a shot. Thing is, I'm not addicted, I don't crave or need one. I can go with out. I just choose not too. It keeps my hands busy and it's just something to do to pass time. If you're going to go the gum root, try twizzlers, that way it's a little more like smoking. Some what similar motions.

    Re: March 14th

    ^Thats how I am. I smoke mainly out of boredom. I actually quit six years ago but, this past Summer I started smoking again. I did quit again at the beginning of the year but two weeks ago I started again.

    Good luck to everyone trying to quit it is hell!

    I actually thought this thread was to promote steak and blowjob day.

    Steak and BJ Day

    Good luck with it Dan, it looks like you are going for it with the best intentions.

    I'm just a social smoker really. Will smoke a few when I'm out, and that's about it so it ain't too bad.

    Can't be good for you smoking all the time though. Hope it goes well Dan.

    And he scores goals...!
