I have smoked for 12 years (I am 28 now). In the last couple of years I have smoked 20+.
I have wanted to quit for a long time, but I had many excuses for why not. My "best" and longest one has been that I am already overweight and I had to fix that first. I have tried to control my weight for long and the smoking never had its turn.
Than I started exerciseing. I have done it regularly for 6 months now. I am in a much better shape than before, but I got sick of exerciseing for 1 1/2 hours and than going outside and smoking. I want to be able to jog by this summer and that is one of my biggest motivations!
I quit on January 2nd, and this is my third day... It has been easier than I thought it would be. I am using Zyban.
Than, a question for the moderators: I would like to use this as a journal, but I get lost around the forum.Is it ok that I use the tread here in "your reasons"?
