Day 20... go Boston Steve!

Day 20 for this American in the UK forum and I'm feeling good. I am still having urges but they come and go... they're nothing like Day 16... Day 16 SUCKED ASS.

I'm still coughing up black and brown shit... I wonder how long that will go on for? Considering I smoked cigarettes for 8 years I'm assuming I'll be coughing shit up for quite some time.

For now thats it.... I guess I'm just checking in to let you know that I'm still with it and will be moving on to another section because week 3 is going to be over in a 1.5 days.

Good luck to everyone and stay strong.

  • well here I am a few hours later and I just had a terrible craving. Of course I've been smoking marijuana and just had a glass of red wine... maybe that had something to do with it.

    Ya know... its funny. I logged into the site because I was having a really really bad urge to smoke. All I could think about for a minute or two was how much I missed the relaxing feeling of a cigarette. The urge was so strong I thought I might take a walk to the store so I decided to come to the forum and find something that would stop me and as soon as I logged in and my mind was set on writing something the urge completely disappeared.

    Already the thought of a cigarette is disgusting and I don't even know what I was thinking a few minutes ago.

    I feel like that Ghetto Boys Song, "My minds playing tricks on me". It really is... one second I miss the taste and feeling of a cigarette and the next the thought is disgusting and repulsive. WTF, being an addict sucks.

    If I wasn't lazy I would track down executives from tobacco companies and beat the shit out of them for what they did to me. I take some responsibility for getting addicted because no one put the cigarette to my mouth and made me smoke but the fact is you have to be 18 to smoke legally and the people i got my first cigarettes from were 15 and 16 years old, and they bought them from the store down the street that doesnt give a **** about age. Its really some bullshit. In this forum I often say "my government" and people agree with exactly what I say not realizing I'm American and they're English... its funny how similar our governments are considering the fact that my country fought yours for freedom and yet neither of us are really free.... just pawns in a game and made to think we're free.

    LOL I think I've officially gone off on a high/drunk tangent and I don't even know what I'm saying anymore.

    In any event this forum has again served its purpose and saved me from lighting one up.

    I'll drink another glass to that!

  • You sure that smoking dope is the way to go?

    Thats what got me smoking ciggies in the first place, I smoked dope from aged 15-17, then started the ciggies.
