My Reasons

Ok well I brought my last packet about a hour and a half ago (10 Lambert and Butler). There are so many reasons why I want to quit. I hate the fact that I can't just stop, It's taken over my life. The price of cigarettes now have gone up so much... my usual brand lamber and buter is now in most shops around £7.20 for a 20 pack. It always depresses me when I hand over £10 and I only get back £1 something as I usually buy a drink with it.

I find work unbearable some days. I'm always sneaking of for a sneaky few drags... I usually only inhale about 3 deep breathes because I'm worried Ill get caught. Then when it gets to break time I chain smoke because I know I can't have 1 for another couple of hours and in that time all I can think about is the next light up.

The money is depressing for me as I spend so much onit but its not the main reason, It's just the whole lifestyle of being a smoker which depresses me just not being able to concentrate ever or be relaxed. Watching films is always a nightmare for me because I have to pause them and go outside for a cigarette. I know I'm such a junkie which is horrible to admit.

I'm so young aswell to be like this, I know that If I carried on smoking I would become a chain smoker for sure.

My main hate is that I cannot stand the smell on my clothes or on my fingers. Most of all I want my mind back 100% and be able to function again.

    Thank you soosan! How long did it take u to feel free from it. I have done that exact same thing of throwing them away and then going through the bin lol it's disgusting what this drug can make u do.

  • Hi warrior, great name by the way!

    I think everyone on this forum has, at one time or another, been so desperate for a fix that they have resorted to all manner of nonsense to get it. I once visited my in-laws who live in the middle of no-where and who also detested smoking. We were staying for 3 nights and on night 2 i was so desperate that i walked 6 miles there and back to a shop to get a pack.... it was 1am and cold and miserable.. What the chuff is that about!??

    Good on ya for deciding to quit. it can be done as many on here will testify. Do it your own way but dont put too much pressure on yourself. A day (or hour) at a time.

    good luck
