I could really use your support

Hi all, this is my first post on this forum... actually this is my first post on any forum. I'm a second year university student and hopefully a future ex-smoker. I know I am young, but the addiction has a strong grasp on me. I fear if I don't quit now, I wont ever. This is day two. It has been incredibly hard to resist the urge to join the other boys for a smoke. We party hard, we study hard, we drink hard and we smoke hard. Yesterday I had a hockey game, and I played horrible. I had zero wind and I couldn't keep up with the pace of the game. It was a real eye-opener. I need to quit and get back into a healthy life-style. I am surrounded by smokers, and I host parties at my residence on a weekly basis. Smokers are always around. Since I cant find refuge in my real life company, I have turned to the virtual world for support. I don't know if I cant do this. There is no way I will give up the parting and drinking at this point in my life, but the smoking has to go. I think about going to the store and buying a pack every second...

I can ace any university test you could throw at me... but quitting smoking is one test I dont think I can prepaire for on my own...

  • Wecome Cale~

    The fact that you made this decision at your age is wonderful:D I partied hard back in the day & I have to say the thought never crossed my mind. You have your whole life ahead of you and it will be so much more comforting knowing you won't be gasping for air every day from doing simple things! My hat is off to you for realizing how stupid smoking really is! You can do this & we will be here for u when u need us! Hang in there!:cool:
