    I Quit One Month Ago...

    It's been much easier than I thought it would be. This time has been less aggravating than the other times I've tried to quit. It might be that my approach is entirely different this time. I quit for no good reason, really. I don't feel pressure to quit--I'm doing it on my own...

    I've decided to quit again.

    Have a plan and diet written out as the last time I quit I gained 13-16 kilograms. It didn't occur to me that I'd gain so much. I was eating the same thing as I was when smoking and found I would bloat and look 4 months pregnant if I ate a donut. A high fibre diet and exercise...

    3 days so far this time.

    Try Again

    At the start of January I quit for just over a month and about 3 weeks ago I started again. I have now decided to try again. Been 2 days up to now. I always seem to get ill a day later after trying to quit even though I usually have a 2 day break between smoking in general.

    I hate smoking, hate the smell, but can't seem to give them up.  It's something to do with my hands when I have nothing to do.  I usually am doing 2 things at one time I wish I wasn't that way, just can't seem to sit and relax.  So rather then eating, I smoke. ...

    Pregnant And Can't Do It.

    I keep trying and trying. I'll quit for half a day, I'll quit for a whole day, I'll cut back to five a day but I can't completely kick it. I want my baby to be healthy more than I want anything. I'm sick of hearing people saying that women who smoke through their pregnancies are...

    It's really hard. I threw away a whole pack

    and have it up but I must say that stress and recurring depression don't help. My last gig the band I play with did sound check without me while I was moving our gear to the back so it wouldn't be in people's ways. I spent the whole show trying to tune my gear and never did. I...
