.....Just like my reasons for quitting and the reasons I come up with that trigger me to want to smoke again are very diff from yours. I understand if some people read my posts and roll their eyes. That's on you .
The truth is I quit for reasons that are most likely less important than yours. I do not suffer from any underlying health probs. I have never had a smokers cough in my life and didnt have one even after I quit. I quit for vanitys sake and I know that pisses off the best of them. MY reason for joining this forum was not to make friends, hold hands, and rub your back ...it is because I had joined previous forums which is frequented by mostly americans and they all say the same thing .. " don't watch your weight , just quit first and battle the weight later." Then I realized that later to them meant never.. they all suffer from 50 lb weight gain and have this forum that is strictly for weight loss after quitting. Thing is , alot of them have been there 2 years and havent lost a lb! The claim things like " my metabolism is broken" .. " i exercise every day and eat 1200 cals and i havent lost anything!" ... This makes me run straight to the store to get my skinny fix. i don't need a bunch of fatties telling me to just ignore it because I dont have a choice, because that will never ever happen. So yes , I joined this forum in hopes of finding a diff take on smoking and I was right ..this forum is very diff. less obesity .. more whinging ahaha
anyway .. I'm Elisa .. I'm 33 y/o from Canada and VERY sarcastic .. I'm an addict and an ex-ani ... I suffer from body dismorphia and that is my smoking trigger. quitting smoking for me is fairly easy and if I can battle the fat gut syndrom that comes with this gift of fresh air ,i'll be forever quit. *curtsies*
