My official quit of nicotine.

Discussion in 'Real Life Stories' started by SuperCalum, Nov 23, 2011.

  1. I have been smoking since I was about 14 and always enjoyed having the odd cigarette. Went through the types as I grown up, JPS to Richmond's onto Lamberts and probably the past year, year and a half Marlboro Lights.
    Sunday night I managed to get hold of 200 for £30, absolutely chuffed with the fact I knew I didn't have to make the long walk to the shop every day for a good 2 weeks or so.
    The fags aren't bad, foreign obviously but still not totally shite.
    Anyhow, in the past 2 days I've smoked about 60 cigarettes due to being off work and smoking considerable amounts during the day.
    I've just been out for a quick fag and it had to be the most disgusting cigarette I've ever had.

    This got me thinking;
    'I know its fucking horrible but I'm still smoking it.'

    Like yeah, I know for a fact if I tried to eat my shit I definitely wouldn't be finishing it off.

    So yeah, fact of the matter is my realisation of my strong addiction is kind of mind blown the fuck outta me.

    Keeping my feet firmly on the grass, but nicotines getting the fuck outta my routine.

    Anyone else in similar situations?
    Any decent pointers into quitting for good?

    Thanks for reading guys.
     
  2. 60 darts in 2 days LOL!!!!!!

    I thought 2-5 a day was bad!!!!!
     
  3. i quit a week ago and i only have been smoking three a day since i was 16, and im now 19.

    i thought THAT was bad, but my neighbor (an 86 year old spinster) smoked FIVE AND A HALF packs of un-filtered American Spirits...daily! WTF...

    i'm a pussy compared to that lady!

    and @08 banshee, I dig the sig! Oil Money!
     
  4. First, kudos to you! I quit a little over a year ago, a few months back I tried a drag off a friend's cig to relive the feeling again and it tasted AWFUL, the great thing about smoking pot is that it doesn't taste like that to smoke. I quit gradually, I felt it was the only way to keep me sane. I was never a coffee drinker but I converted during quitting smoking for some reason it really helped. I had a hard time sleeping when quitting, I used patches and gum which have some side effects but are okay once you get used to them. I wouldn't suggest the gum to anyone tho.Took me 6 weeks to get completely cig free. I attacked the psychological reasons behind my smoking, to deal with emotions, when bored, when angry, etc. I broke my triggers to smoke and it helped a lot. I did gain weight afterwards, about 20 lbs that I'm still trying to lose so watch your food. Good luck!

    Dude that's one every 8 minutes (assuming your awake 16h each day). Basically chain smoking the entire day considering it takes a couplei mnutes to finish one
     

  6. Fuck me couldn't be doing that, money is a killer half the time.


    Haha, as Im typing Im dying for another one ha. Its the very worst of addictions.
     

  7. Ah it's hard like, I'm dying for one now. + I need to walk the dog soon and that what I do when I'm out taking her out.
    I'm a big coffee drinker too, I seem to be a very addictive person yet I don't have any side effects of smoking or the coffee? I have quite a decent sleeping pattern (Normally 2am - 6:30am) and I have a a decent enough social life. I just think it's stress that's built up my addiction and now I'm dependant on the sticks.

    Its nice to hear from you just for the fact of your quit but I am absolutely choking for one! haha.

    Thanks again x
     
  8. I've quit... 3 times? I've never had an issue with it. I probably haven't smoked for as long as you. I quit. Then I don't smoke for 3 months. Then I just make the concious decision to pick it back up again, it's not like I fiend for them. I just enjoy smoking, it's a fun passtime for me.
    Healthwise, it's bad. It's unattatractive, but I'm not interested in superficial bitches. It makes you unathletic, but my sport activity is limited to skateboarding. It will kill me, but if I live long enough to succumb to a disease then my life was successful.
    Fuck it, I like to smoke. And now that I can't get high I just smoke more, so thanks, America.
     

  9. Interesting thought to be honest,
    Thing is the thought of knowing that you are addicted isn't the same as enjoying a smoke. Like when I read others saying they smoke 3 a day? Im like what the brown?! I have probably smoked 14-18 cigarettes a day for the past 6 months and before that I was on around 10.
    I had constant talks to friends about why I smoke so much, I get no effects from it, Charlie Sheen non smokers lungs the lot! But at the end of the day If I didn't have that realisation that I was that addicted I wouldn't tear myself from the sweet tasting sensation.
    Fuck the people who complain about how bad it is and how it kills you.
    So does Alcohol but you are all still draining it.

    Thanks for your post mate, might have to find/make a thread with people who are in the midst of quitting.

    GOOD ON YOU!!! :hello:



    And a little reading for you!

    (That one needs translating :cool: - Anandamide is our body's own THC, but it breaks down very easily (unlike THC). URB stops the breakdown of anandamide. More anandamide reverses the effects of nicotine! :D )

    This one is simple and readable! Synthetics just try to copy what Nature has already created! :smoke:

    Him: Hide them, Seriously mate, hide them.
    Me: Arr I need one lmao.
    Him: You dont. You THINK you need 1.
    Me: But I have 3 left in my deck.
    Him: 3 before the next deck
