I saw this comment by PuffNoMore, and I quote..
"I am wondering when an addict to smoking nicotine, becomes free? Is it true once an addict, always an addict?
Is there a time limit to reach to be a declared Free? "
Please understand, This is only my opinion, based on many years as a smoker, and now being able to look back, objectively..
Some do say, once a smoker, always a smok...
Wishing all a very Merry Christmas, Happy HoloThanksMas, and wishes for a much better, and smoke free, 2021 :)
I was reminded, by iCanQuit, that I have not posted in a while, in this morning's email...
It just so happens, that we buried my Mom yesterday, and this reminded me of the joy my quitting gave her. She complained about my smoking, most of my adult life, and, I have to admit, sometimes irritated me with her remarks about my smell. You know, we did not really believe we carried that much STINK, un...
I just read an interesting question, by weewillem.
(( When do you become a non-smoker ? ))
So, Just my personal view, but we may take the term, too lightly..
In a way, we can only really be ex smokers, but I like to preach learning to think like a non smoker, or more accurately, to stop thinking like a smoker. Some say, once a smoker, always a smoker, that just does not light up. I strongly...
Wow, I have been reading over the post, for yesterday, and things got a little crazy..
I am a big fan of cold turkey. I also understand that many can't handle it, for an assortment of reasons. Had I not been semi retired, and needed maintain any kind of production, I may not have made it. I was pretty useless for a couple weeks.
I have recommended the use of a simple, disposable E-cig, with n...
It seems that some, including myself, are having trouble posting, since the change.. I also think, the first thing we should see, is the latest post, not top stories. The way it was. It was simple, clean, and easy to use. We have a saying, here in the States,, IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT.. :)
We appreciate what you do, but sometimes, it is best to leave things as they are..
Well, two years ago today, I snuffed out my last smoke.. It is still Feb, 15th here. You folks, down under, will be reading this on my tomorrow, but I'm writing it on your yesterday :)
The best tip, I can give to new comers, is to realize, this does not have to be a journey. You do not have to stay quit. It does not have to be a life long battle. You simply have to real...
One year ago today, I had my last cigarette. I was a blind,stupid, slave to smoking for 45 years. I have had the last pack I bought, unopened, all this time.. I had planned to cremate it today, so it went on the burn pile. Just out of curiosity, I lit one, and had a few puffs.. At this point, I can't imagine, how I let that thing run my life for so long, except, that SMOKING MAKES YOU STUPID :)
Well, I guess that is not entirely true.. I had my last smoke Feb, 16th, but I can really say, knowing I was free for 8 months :)
I had not given any real thought to quitting.. At times over the years, I would cut back down, always trying not to go over a pack a day. But, one day, I saw a young couple lighting up, just outside a restaurant, and thought,, How stupid do you have to be to pick up o...
I was out of town this week, for work, and ran into an old friend. Turns out that he had quit smoking a couple months ago.. But, like Des M. , it was not his choice. Less than an hour after his last smoke, he was in the hospital gasping for life.. A severe, and sudden, onset of C.O.P.D. ! I, like him, had no idea it could come on like that.. One day, you are active, working, happy smoker, and the...
