Thread: I'm gonna quit smoking . . . . after Coachella

    I quit after getting strep throat. My doctor said I wasn't allowed to smoke. I normally don't like smoking anyway when I'm sick, but I was sick for a solid 2 weeks and could barely move, let alone get up and smoke a cigarette. By the time I was better, I hadn't had a cigarette in 2 weeks, so I just took it day by day then. I've slipped up here and there taking a puff of a cigarette, but I did so only after 7 months of not touching any nicotine. It's a day to day, moment by moment process. Now I've been smoke free for almost 3 years.

    The most important thing to remember about quitting smoking is that you're not smoking RIGHT NOW. Stay in the moment about not smoking and you'll find that as you go longer, the cravings get less and less. Reward yourself with milestones.

    ^^this. same thing happened with me 2 months ago. you've been better though because i've had a full one here and there(mostly when drinking)but i found the long term goals and stuff too overshadowing. taking it a day at a time thing has really worked.. that and whenever i get tempted to smoke, i try to go and read an article or testimonial or something on lung cancer or anything health related to smoking and it freaks me out haha.

    On day 4 and feeling a whole lot better, cravings have gone way way down. I do feel kinda sick, but I know it will pass in a couple days or so.

    This is the easiest of all the vices to quit in my opinion. Well soda is pretty easy too. Good luck guys.

    I've pretty much quit. I don't go out that often anymore, and if I do, I'll buy a pack because drinking and smoking go so well together, and I don't want to smoke all my friends' cigarettes. I equate it to eating cheesecake. If you eat cheesecake every day of your life it will fucking kill you, whereas once a month or whatever is not a big deal. Same with squares. I know I will smoke at Coachella (drugs. can't be avoided), but I'll go a good long while after before I light another.

    take it from someone with 45% lung function, don't end up like me when you have a choice, it fuckin' sucks.

    and anyone tried those "safe-cig" vaporizers that look like cigarettes where you can still get nicotine without the smoke?

    Sadly, I'm still smoking. One a day, sometimes more if I'm drinking, but I've cut way back since the original post. Still . . . can't say I'm a quitter yet.

    haha, i don't. have a lung disease which has slowly destroyed my lungs over the last 18 years or so.

    a smoker just needs to spend a morning with me to see their future

    Those e-cigs are bullshit. There is no satisfaction whatsoever. A few of my friends have them to help them cut back, and I always hit it for the novelty, and it just makes me want to light a cigarette instead.

    I barely smoked anything this year. I think this might be doable this time around.

    I smoked 4 packs in 5 days. Had my last one 4 hours ago.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I can't believe it's been 8 months since I smoked. I don't even think about it anymore. And i was a smoker.

    I thought I was gonna quit before coachella, but that didn't happen. Surprisingly I only had about 7 cigarettes throughout the whole festival. I'd say the cut back was successful
