Hello. My name is Brian and I am new to the forums. I quit smoking yesterday. This is the note I wrote my cigarettes:
I thought for quite a while that you were helping me deal with things. You were only helping me satisfy nicotine addiction hour-to-hour, day-to-day. You have cost me my father, my health, my appearance, my money, my smell, my taste, my energy, and probably posture. You have made me a supporter of a company I do not believe in and so have made me a hypocrite. You are the worst thing in my life and we are breaking up. I donâ€™t want to see you anymore. I hate you.
My new life is clean, athletic, adventurous, and pure, and you have no part in it. I will rid you from my life completely and tell others about you. I have nothing to do with you anymore. Thanks for being a unnecessary crutch, thank you for nothing. I will heal and remove you from my future.
I am twenty-four and have been smoking since I was thirteen in a big way. Both my parents were smokers, and I watched my father die in front of me last year from a sudden heart attack. I promised myself to quit. My mom has cut down, my brother is in trouble.
I wish they would stop selling cigarettes, seriously, is there any other consumer product this poisonious that sits on the shelves?
I have had it, but day two is tough. I can't believe I am sweating because of nicotine withdraw. Is this normal. My head feels like a balloon. If I am going to feel this way everyday, I think I would rather die of lung cancer in twenty-years. Does this feeling get significantly better after say, a week, a month?
I am on mint nicotine gum, and it seems to A.) help B.) taste like crap.
Good luck to everyone trying to quit. I am there with you.
