    What kept me going was my squats started to progress again. I had gotten to the point where I couldn't get enough air to push more weight and I'd crap out after a couple of reps. I was strong enough to do it, but my lung capacity was terrible. A few weeks after quitting I started making progress again and I just focused on that to get me through.
    Absolutely! The best advice I have for when I quit smoking and chewing is NO caffeine or booze for a month.

    Everybody have a nice weekend.
    Congrats on your progress so far, I recently stopped smoking as well.. everyday I think about the time I've gone without it and if you ever feel you need to have one just think you'll need to go all the way back to square one. It's not worth it!

    cheers,

    Thanks bro... The walls have been climbed, believe me... I posted a thread about my impatience before actually before some other tests... Haha! Those other tests revealed that I haven't got the suspected cancer, thyroid problems or type 1 or 2 diabetes... So knowing that it's definitely nothing major helps like crazy... Otherwise I'd be going crazy without a doubt... All the unselfish concern from this forum from people such as you guys helps even more when needing to keep a level head... Thanks again...

I wanted to quit, so I used the patches to kill the cravings & my mind HAD TO do the rest... Anyways, 8yrs of smoking turned into 7yrs smoke free my friend... Why? Because I put my health & will power infront of my ego...
    GOOD FOR YOU!

    I stopped "cold turkey" but was also taking alot of MJ (medical) so that helped, then i toned that down as well.
    now i enjoy a cigar or smoke maybe 3 or 4 times a year avrg. i got a whole carton (gift from over seas) and liek 5 cases of cigars and am not temped, though after all this i do feel like a cigar lol.

    its bad for you, if you are going to smoke daily or even weekly , then get the electric cig.
    better option. :-)

Birthday and I smoked a pack a day if not more the last six years plus much more when I drank so I quit drinking first but I was a fiend for cigs if I can quit anyone can good luck to all that try to quit it is possible

  30. Has anyone had any experience with e-cigarettes and if so what did you think? I've been seriously considering it lately, I've tried to quit countless times and never make it past a weekend. Saw a commercial for blu cigs ( http://www.blucigs.com/store/starter-kits ) ...idk

    Yeah I'm still using it but I've dialed the nicoteine down so much I'll probably stop sometime soon. It releases water vapor that feels kind of similar to a cigarette

  36. You can stop smoking when will be able to take a firm decision by yourself. You need have self control and self esteem power, which would help you leaving anything bad you want to. Otherwise you can use E-Ciggarete a newly introduced product whicl surly help your way in leaving smoking.

  38. Eat balance diet and adopt healthy environment around you.Smoking is so difficult to quit but it is possible.Cold turkey are best for quit smoking.Eat raw vegetables and use fresh juices for good health.Running,walking,cycling are so effective for stopping this habit.Stay motivated and keep moving.
