Hi to all.
I have decided to join this forum in the hopeful event that it aids me to give up smoking. Again. I had quit for a whole year before and it was the most refreshing but yet awful year. I constantly thought about cigarettes and it felt as if i was in a state of deprivation. It was as if I lost my personality as I did not feel like my smokey old self. Even though my body felt great, my mind was out of tune. Life was so much harder without cigarettes. I eventually gave up quitting and fell in the trap all once again. Now I sit here wanting to quit so badly, the same as each day before this but yet I end up puffing away anway. Oh the fatigue, the unnecessary worry it brings into your life and the cost of life and money it brings along but yet I smoke any way. I am 25 and have been smoking since the age of 12, more than half my life have I spent smoking and that is horrifying. I would hate to carry this addiction with me throughout the rest of it. I have to beat this in order to move ahead and pursue my goals. As smoking is a distraction, its like a parasite sucking the life out of you, well to me that is. I have read tons of articles on quitting and the common factor in them all is support, therefore I have joined this forum. Tomorrow will be my day one, i am going to have my final smoke now then will be making a vow to never take another puff. All the best to everyone who has quit, who is quitting and who will quit. Being smoke free is a gift of life lol savour it and never take another puff.
