I'm back

Hi guys...it's been a long hard slog but I stopped on the 1st of June after some serious soul searching....I watched the boxing with a friend on the Saturday night & he mentioned that he used to smoke 24/7 and had packed up after a night of smoking & drinking...I asked him how.....?

He replied " it done nothing for me" that was 8 years ago....

I woke up on Sunday & looked at the 8 cigarettes in the pack & said &&&&& Crushed the box & made sure that they could not be smoked.

I must admit that after 2 days I purchased a USB e-cig and used it for 3 days..... It made my heart beat faster so I chucked them and decided to go smoke free with no aids....I must admit that I found it very difficult returning to this site after my last post....( over a year ago ) but after reading the various stories and tips I have returned stronger and wiser ( I hope !!! ) .

  • Hi Adidas,

    It takes some serious cojones to admit that you tried before and you are trying again - I tip my hat to you.

    "Stronger and wiser" sounds great but I'm sure there'll be times when you wonder why you are struggling with this torture. Don't think of it as giving something up - think of it as freeing yourself from that nasty little nicotine monster - that works for me - I hope it works for you!


  • Hi Adidas1961

    Great to hear you are having another bash! Any lifestyle change requires determination, willpower, support, motivation and self awareness and it sounds like you have got all this in spades! So well done and keep going. Remember, willpower is like a muscle, it needs exercising!
