I've been smoking for almost a year now. I'm 20 years old and I'm studying abroad in Amsterdam from my home school in Lincoln, Nebraska. My twin brother is with me as well, my roommate in a nice flat. This is the third time I've tired to quit, but the first that I'm really taking quite seriously. My reason's for quitting are many, but it really boils down to this: I am not invincible. I'm only 20 years old, I still have time to quite smoking and gain much of my health back. I'm not going to die young or let smoking impact my life any more.
So, I'm away from everyone in my family, removed from my friends back home, I'm ready to leave this part of my life behind me. I've been able to quit for 24 hours before, but after the 24 hour mark I haven't had much success. Tonight at about 9pm will be 24 hours for me without smoking. I feel like hell, but at least weed is legal here! If you're quitting today as well, join me, send me a message or whatever, we'll try and help each other get through it.
Wish me luck!
