3 weeks no cigs going strong!!!
i think you are ok with herb. i mean smoking anything isnt good and its best to vaporize, but herb doesnt have the 599 household chemicals like cigs do. much less harsh.
doing good aton...stick it out.3 weeks
Though it may sound silly and negative, it works well. Fear of losing valuable things in life will give immense strength to face and overcome the problems. Think about the side effects of the cigarettes and have fear of losing your health, family, happiness and life. When you start fearing about all the loss you will face due to smoking, you tend to hate smoking and gradually avert from that. Even if you are offered to smoke, you tend to withdraw from that place. Keep trying, ultimately you’ll end up quit smoking and lead a better life.
Try nicotine flavored chewing gums to quit smoking. It is proving to be a successful alternative for cigarettes. It is a boon for all those who wants to quit smoking.
I'll second the post about e-cigs. I've smoked pretty much my whole life, and it is horrible. You start because you're a young idiot and then it gets a-hold of you. Then you continue to smoke without ever realizing why. E-cigarettes are a far cleaner and a far safer delivery method.
I am new, so I don't know if I can post youtube videos.. but this video is very interesting. So many smokers go through their whole life never even realizing WHY they smoke.. it's on youtube just search for vjyjKzPu2fc and go to the 3:00 mark.
If you don't get away from the addiction - the e-cig will still change your life, for you. I didn't have to go through ANY withdrawl and I have more energy and a more steady nicotine level.
If you have any questions about e-cigarettes, please feel free to PM me. Don't buy pricey ones, a-lot of people buy the generic mini ones and pay as much as $200 and they don't work too well. You know, stay away from overly hyped ones like the blu and junk like that. Look for Joye and other quality brands.
There's a great forum about e-cigs called e cigarette forum. (I can't link to anything)
E-cigs also cost far far less than smoking. A quality e-cig starter kit can be had for as low as thirty bucks and a month supply of juice can run as low as ten bucks if you mix your own or maybe thirty bucks if you buy it premixed.
cigarettes are legal crack.
The most disgusting leach you will encounter if you bring it into your life.
especially for the health conscious. it made me paranoid ALL THE TIME. constantly having to worry about mouth , throat, lung cancer. flat muscles, no oxygen. it makes it VERY hard to gain muscle. lower libido, etc. all of that is on the side of the high cost, terrible smell, and yellowed teeth and finger nails. not to mention the hurt lipid profile.
there really isnt any other explanation for why it is legal, other than population control.
thankyou Jesus for breaking me from this habit.
For me, the action IS the juice.
yeeehaaa week 4 going strong!!!
BJJ = life
I could not agree, more! I do NOT miss my newports. At all.
The reason it's legal is that it is a VERY reliable source of revenue for our government. That's why they're allowed to have 100s and 100s the acceptable safe limit of tens of chemicals .... yet the good old FDA starts misinformation and lies and electric cigarettes, and illegally seizes shipments of them, even though they use only three or four harmless chemicals (which are all in cigarettes, in higher concentrations, anyway)
Population control has always been on my mind, too, if no ones smoked and half of a million people all of a sudden forgot to die on a yearly basis.. what on earth would we do, then?
Phillip Morris even had the balls to say "hey, we're not causing more medical expenses, because our users die more often" or something like that
No it is a horribly addictive disgusting body and life destroying government profit machine ... Just get away from smoking any way you possibly can!
After reading this post I stopped smoking the blacks today after almost a year of smoking about 4 or 5 a day. If anyone knows how big they are..inhaling 4 or 5 in a day is probably brutal on the lungs.
Lets hope I can kick this habit for good.
Ah! Those are not good.. You inhaled the smoke? Congratulations on quitting!! I use to love blackstone milds (like b&m but smoother, sweeter) but they were also hell on the lungs.
I got some of those "tar bar" things and when I realized my newports and my cigarillos created more tar than anything else, that's when it hit me. I was painting my lungs with this stuff!!
The more of that there is, the faster you kill all of your cilia. The lungs can't clear themselves once those are dead. That's why some smokers cough and cough and cough in futility. I guess the smoke also kills nerves some way or another. That's why smoking is painful for a-lot of people, but only at first.
It's just too bad that the lungs don't have a sense of smell, or taste. The tar smells like 1000 ashtrays and "tastes like stinging". They go to great trouble trying to mask the harshness of it
Here's another good video rCvEDg_ffjU on youtube
It shows how they make the "tobacco" they put into commercially sold "tobacco" products. Basically they leech everything out of it, load that with chemicals that make nicotine more available to the body and other ones that make it taste better and spray that onto a paper they then chop up ...
It's just crazy what goes into getting people to smoke and how much we DON'T KNOW about our addictions at times.
Sorry for being long winded, but smoking I've seen it kill people I cared for and it's helped destroy my own health... And, me, I never understood the addiction until about a year ago, so I know, others probably don't either.
Well i'm on day 2 right now and i'm not gonna lie...I don't know if its the "placebo" affect of thinking something will happen right away when I get off of them or not but i'm feeling less cloudy on the inside.
When I woke up I didn't have this heavy feeling I normally do so maybe its working, time will tell.
keep it up bro! im going month strong over here feeling great@!
BJJ = life
5th week here!!! temptations are still there but I just think about how $hitty they made me feel and how nasty cigs smell so the desire goes away.
BJJ = life
3 years and counting smoke free
I tried only smoking black and milds only back in the day...lmfao..i got up to about 6-7 of those a day and that idea didnt really workout for me.
