    Still goin' strong with no cigs, but I worry about when I go back to work. It's those habits that will be hard to break.
    I'm looking back at my school days now thinking how funny it would have been smoking away in the bathroom stall, waving my cigarette to keep the smoke from rising, while my teacher was in the next stall doing the same thing! I'm suprised you're finding it easier being off work than at work. Weird.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    It's the leaving campus during my conference period or lunch for a smoke that's going to be a hard habit to break. The cigarette would just be an easy excuse for me to get away for a little bit. There's a great park just around the corner from my school that overlooks the harbor and Lido Island. It was so nice to get away for 20 minutes, get a coffee, have a smoke, and relax for a few before heading back to the chaos. I'll still take advantage of the get away time, but I know the cravings will kick in big time and ruin a bit of the calm.

    Yes please, how can I support you?

    I gotta tell you the hardest thing will be dealing with being around your friends who smoke. Luckily I have only a few friends who smoke, for the most part I have a smoke free environment.

    Let's do it. Almost 10 days for me and still goin' strong.

    I usually choke at wk 3-6 and I find my weakest moments are after I've smoked some pot and of course after I've had a few cocktails. The cocktails part is easy for me cause I don't usually have a drink in the evening unless we are going to a show. I guess it would be easier for me to be around my smoking friends if they smoked marlboro or camel but they all smoke my brand...American Sprits...doesn't matter which blend I"ll gladly smoke any blend of the A.S.

    I think instead of having my mornig smoke I'll go for a quick bike ride...I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow...

    OK...support is a two way street so I'm here to support you aswell...when do you find yourself most vulnerable and how do you refrain from giving in??? Sounds like you blaze on a regular basis and wine/beer may be a typical evening beverage in your house...how do you get around not smoking? Or am I mistaken???

    My most vulnerable moments are driving to and from work and during breaks at school. I sadly enjoy driving while smoking. Otherwise the weak moments are after a few drinks when I'm out. At home, I don't smoke. My husband hates it. There might be the occasional sneak, but that's pretty easy to resist because Jim has a fucking nose like a hound dog. It could be 4 hours later and he could probably smell it on me.

    The toughest days will be in a couple of weeks when I'm back at school. I'll keep you posted.


    Yes, bikes over smokes any day. Go for the 2 wheels!!!

    OK girl...I've been thinking 'bout you pretty much everytime I light up and put 1/2 the cigarette out in my little ashcan out side my apartment door. I haven't emptied it so it has quite a collection. I once heard that in smoking support groups they reccommend a fill an ashtray as full as you can to experience a sense of disgust...so I've been working on filling the can...I used to either toss them or put them out and leave them in one of my planters...which looked disgusting...recently, I've cleaned up all the cigie butts outa the planters and put a little bucket with small stones outsisde my door. Today, I woke up at 5 and instead of having a smoke with my morning pee I thru on some work-out clothes and took a 45 minute bike ride down the coast and around the surrounding foothills in my neighborhood. I haven't had a smoke yet but I'm feeling tempted...

    How are you doing??? I like you enjoy smoking most while I'm driving...and since I've been with the company I'm with now I've cut out the smoke breaks so that's not a problem...my old office I used to have about 3-5 smoke breaks...

    It gets easier. After a month it becomes the easiest I think. Then for the first year I still craved the beer cigerette but when I would break down and do it I would feel sick to my stomach. Or the after a really big meal cigerette. Just stick to it and soon you will wonder how you ever smoked in the first place.

    I'm still holding it together. This weekend was difficult though because we had several debaucherous nights that would have been perfectly paired with a quick smoke. But I did not give in and have yet to give up.

    Almost 3 weeks now.

    Come on Chrissy you can do it. I'll bet if you ate the contents of the ashtray, it'd cure your addiction quick.

    Eweeeee!!! ok, truthfully I made it thru the whole day and let myself have one in the late evening which was nice...it was satisfying and not overwhelming...I woke up at 445 this morning did almost an hour long ride and am starting another day with out smokeydokey's. I ate a really healthy lunch with healthy morning & afternoon snacks and have the same thing going on today...I brought some salsa I made so I can snack on some chips 'n salsa but I have a feeling that since I'm reducing my portions that it (the salsa) might jack me up...I guess we'll see...

    Yayyy Gunz...keep up the great work...I have OSL this weekend and will try to maintain my sessation but if necessary may let myself indulge in just the one...

    I smoked for 9 years but thankfully quit about 4 years ago. It was tough and I loved smoking. As most smokers, I loved everything about it, the first cigarette of the day, the after meal cigarette, the post sex cigarette, yada yada. Quiting was freaking tough, one of the roughest things I ever did. The first month or two were really bad for me but as others have mentioned it does get easier, you just have to have the will power. I rarely if ever crave one now. Even hanging out with smokers and being surrounded by smoke doesn't phase me.

    I quit smoking for 3 months, but one night I was at a honky-tonk in key west and ended up buying a pack of marlboros.

    I've regressed, but I've cut back. I'm no longer smoking on my drives to and from work, just during my break. Even that is not as enjoyable as it once was, yet I'm still doing it. It's just a weak excuse.


    I hate me.

    no matter how much perfume you put on, how much gum you chew, how hard you try to hide it, they all know you smoke. and think you're weak for it.
