    The Hard Times

    Posted in Staying quit 9 Nov 2019
    4 Comments

    My brother died today. It was quite unexpected and not smoking related as far as we know. Actually it was yesterday he died but it is 4:30 AM and I haven't slept yet. Yes, smoking. To occupy my mind I started watching a movie. It was a period drama about the American civil war. At one point the action lets up and the hero pulls a pipe from his pocket, loads it and inhales the smoke. I could ...

    Over a month smoke free

    Posted in Staying quit 11 Oct 2019

    I’be got over a month behind me and looking forward to staying smoke free. Anytime my mind wanders to considering having a smoke I think of a big red stop sign and it’s worked really well. I know it’s my mind that will take me back to smoking. My physical health has improved so much. Whiter teeth, more stamina at the gym, warm hands and feet are all big benefits so far. I’ve gained a bit of weigh...

    888 days and counting

    Still staying smoke free and vigilant. No more cravings to speak of. Actually, sometimes I wander why I was addicted to cigarettes begin with and that’s a dangerous territory for me. Thus, I have to practice NOPE mantra - not one puff ever. To those who are just starting out and still fighting your nicodemons believe in your inner strength because this is one fight is worth winning.

    I smoked for 25 years. I did some research on the internet and discovered that green tea is very helpful when quitting smoking. When your having a craving green tea Works amazing and it keeps me calm. I highly recommend drinking green tea because it works for me.

    It’s just not worth it! On Friday morning 7/6, I woke up with severe pains to the right side of my chest and back it’s all a very long story but I’m actually being treated in a clinic with depression, the result of my wife trying to commit suicide 7 weeks ago! I couldn’t get the vision out of my head so I went to the bottle in an attempt to block it out. After 4 weeks my situation declined imme...
