Thread: Come on smokers - own up!

    Re: Come on smokers - own up!

    I smoked for 12 years and I haven't had a smoke for about 4 1/2 months now. Patches did it for me, first time I'd used them. I'm still finding it difficult, some days I have to hold myself back from going and buying a packet but I take a few deep breaths and think to myself how good those deep, fresh, non-wheezy breaths feel and how good I feel since giving up, and the urge passes.

    Well done to all the recent quitters!

    I've been smoking regularly since I was 17. Never more than a pack a day. Mostly at home, since I cant smoke at work. I am an unapologetic smoker. I enjoy every single one. ESPECIALLY with my coffee. Richmond Menthol, thanks. I cant get Kools here, so it's the closest equivalent.

    Re: Come on smokers - own up!

    I am a chainsmoker.....especially when im on the computer.

    Iv smoked since the age of 13, and im now 24. I smoke about 15-20 a day, more when I go out with me mates.

    I packed in for 5 days, and it was the most horrendous time ever. I was so ill. I couldnt sleep or anything, and just felt really depressed in general, so I started again.

    Me dad packed in and he'd been smoking for 30-odd years maybe more, but he was really bad. He was hallucinating and it made him really ill. So he started again.

    I dont believe in using "stop-smoking" aids either. Such as patches or gum, I believe if you have the will-power to pack in then you will be able to do it without using these methods, after all people have been packing in for years before anything like that was available.

    If you really want to pack in though, dont let these side effects put you off!

    Keep at it!

    I am, although I gave up for a year and a half. I only started again due to social smoking; I thought I'd be okay with that. Then I started going out for one at work, as the people I got on with all smoked and I just kind of tagged along..

    All in all, I've smoked for 17 years - scary!
    I smoked. I never got on with filter tips, which're absolutely foul. When I
    was - oh - in my early 20s, I smoked a pipe, with a very long stem. This
    was good, 'cos the bowl was far enough away not to make my eyes water,
    and the "googly bits" didn't get up the stem (yuck, and *yuck* again!), and
    a pipe is wonderful. Pipe tobacco was also good in cigarettes, although care
    had to be taken. Cigars and snuff (although snuff is a completely different way
    of getting nicotine) had their time. I stopped a few years ago - for ages there
    was a pouch of tobacco, some papers, matches etc. on a shelf. I told myself
    that the next one would kill me, and stopped on the instant. I still miss it, to
    a degree, but - now I *know*.

    I probably smoke more than 20 a day...disgusting.
    Same here, Bez, without the recent giving up periods.

    An aside: I don't pretend smoking is actually good for you but it does seem to be blamed for every single disease and illness known to man (and even those that aren't)

    While I was flat hunting, I found there several landlords didn't want Pets, Children, DSS and SMOKERS. ....that meant there were at least 2 places I couldn't go for....

    Trouble is Theia, if you tell a fib on the ALL the forms you have to fill in and they smell smoke during one of their checks, I'm guessing you could get chucked out !
