The first X

In a couple of hours I can make my first X. Then it has been 24 hours since I smoked my last cigarette.

I am miserable already and just want to punch a puppy in the face and have a smoke.

Just one...but in my very long smoker career I have learned there is no such thing as one cigarette because after the "one" there is another "just one" and so on.

I am smoking for 20 years now and the last years I developed more and more into a chainsmoker. I prepare myself that it is going to be a tough road ahead with a lot of temptations for the "just one" cigarette but the payoff is worth waking this road.

I am sick of the money I am wasting on smokes. I rather invest it and this is what I plan to do. I will buy a little bit of crypto everyday to reward myself. I dont care about the price this is just my honey pot to see how much better money can be spend than poising myself and I every $ I put into crypto now, will be worth way more in the coming years.

Health is starting to play a big part in my decision as well. I have times were I am coughing a lot and there is always that thought in the back if I finally caught one of those diseases associated with smoking.

Also I am sick that they play such a big part in my life.

"Do I have enough smokes, or do I still need to get some?"

"It is raining and in the middle of the night? Doesnt matter! Still need to get some smokes!"

I am training again at the moment and I am sick and tired of being one of the first ones who is out of breath. It is limiting my ability to train twice a day as well as it sucks up soo much willpower to go mentally through the warmup already.

I am sure after 2 or 3 weeks of no smoking I can train twice a day much more easily.

The laws are getting more and more harsh for smokers which annoys me as a smoker.

"Am I allowed to smoke here? No? Where da fuck do I need to go?"

You cant making something difficult for me if I have no desire doing it!

Awww poor puppy. I’m going to join you starting today, I’ve been thinking of doing another 2 weeks without sweets which are my cigarettes. My 2 weeks usually become a month. Then I’ll take it from there!

I should do that as well...I did not find a puppy though

I'm not a smoker myself but I do feel you guys in regards the strict rules that most Western countries seem to have forced upon smokers. I think this scene for British comedy show the IT Crowd comparing a smokers plight to that of Dr. Zhivago like Soviet oppression is quite fitting

that it quite funny

Don't ask me for advice, I 'stopped' smoking at the age of 15 ;)

You seem much smarter than me as long as you are not 16 :-)

I was dumb-ass when younger, blame my upbringing!

If I can do it anyone can. Its been 9 years for me now without a cigarette. The first 7 days are it, after that thr nicotene is out of your bloodstream. You can do it.

The last times I tried to stop I paused for 6 months. The first week was hard and the second I had like "attacks" were I wanted a smoke really badly for 5 minutes after that I was fine again...so far I hate it and cigarettes are more or less constantly on my mind

I need to do the same... it’s tuff to kick 🙋🏼‍♂️

must be even more annoying in the states where and where not you are allowed to smoke

You can do it we all know

I hope so

The first two are the nonsense reasons but the third, the way smoking rules your life, schedules and plans is THE reason that people should concentrate on to quit.

I haven't managed to quit, I can't remember half a dozen times in the last almost 40 years I have gone 24 hours without a cig.

All I can do is offer you my best wishes for success. So difficult but I ask one thing. When you sucedd, please don't become one of 'those' ex smokers please :-)

I hate them too and I will give my best not become one. They are more annoying then new vegans

Right on @flipstar, you can do this dude!! I will dream of punching a puppy AND a kitty for you! :)

thank you :-)

Good Luck!! You can do that...but leave the Puppies alone! 😂

Probably...no puppies here anyway

Good luck flipstar

thank you

Smart decision. It's not that hard, you'll see. I did it and never look back.

At the moment all I have on my mind are cigarettes.

I tried to stop multiple times and my longest break was 6 months. When I looked back then it was pretty easy atm it feels like a tough road ahead though...
