But I really need a smoke. Anyone for encouragement? I've done almost 2 weeks, and I feel different this time, as though I need to give up.
Any sponsorship for 2008 would help, that's really why I've stopped smoking
One step at a timeJust quit for a day. Today. Tomorrow is another challenge, park it.Do you really need a stroke or heart attack to act as your warning shot?
The public commitment helps, but it's got to be within you.
Nykie, trust me it does get easier. I gave up several times, the final one being when I had a really bad asthma attack and thought I was a gonner. Years later I'm no longer asthmatic, rarely get colds but when I do it doesn't always end up in a disgusting chesty cough, and like CRB says food and wine really does taste better.
Stick with it mate it will be worth it, and good luck
Nykie, to echo what Blisters said, it took my dad until his 4th or 5th heart attack before he stopped smoking. Since then he's has major heart surgery (artery bypass graft), 6 small strokes, another heart attack and an aortic aneurysm.
Just stop it!!
