I'M QUITTING SMOKING!
« on: January 03, 2013, 03:09:27 AM »
Well, that deserves less fanfare than you think. I used to smoke around 15-35 cigs a day about 3 years ago. I've smoked for 4.5 years. These days, I have 1 cigarette a day, or maybe 2. Sometimes 3, but this is ssssssssuuuuuuuper rare if I have 3 cigs a day.

Meh. I decided that HA cannot exist peacefully with cigarette smoking.
Haven't smoked since NYE where I threw away half the cigarette anyways, I just hate to smoke them.

Screw it! :D I am sure I am gonna do it.

I wonder if 1-2 cigs a day was bad for my lungs?
Well I am young and got lots of time to heal.

Thanks, all!!

I never felt too bad about the smoking, since I barely smoked at all. I mean, I used to smoke a lot and I recall the effects that had on my body! OH BOY! That was some rough stuff, but my lungs feel better already and it's been 4 days :D

Congrats!!  It such a good thing.  I quit 8 years ago when I found out I was pregnant and I never looked back.  My fiance is/was a heavy smoker, about a pack and a half a day and he is on day 7 cig free today.  He is really struggling, but I show him things like your post as well as other success stories and it really does help get him through!!!

Tip to smokers: when I quit smoking, within a month my anxiety went away by atleast 50%! I was shocked how big of a difference it made. Just something to keep in mind :)
