Hey, I quit smoking cold turkey 3 months ago with a buddy and I'm very happy ! I only smoked for about 4-5 years, started early with my school friends all doing it, and you just end up assimilated into the habits of the groups you're in sometimes. Before I quit I was about 1-3 packs a week. Doing it with a buddy was the best choice I've made. I've tried before and only once got to 3 weeks, mostly it was 1-1/2 weeks of cold turkey. Now I have someone for inspiration, motivation, and competition. Pros: I -love- being active, working out now. Feels FRESH and rejuvenating and lifts my spirits. I can't wait to strengthen and grow my lungs. Extra money Don't have to stand outside in this freezing winter for smoke breaks My clothes don't smell like shit... until exposed to all the smokers in the rest of the house Cons: I still think about them. Sometimes many times a day, sometimes once every other day, but even last week I just went through a really hard bout of cravings. Returning to school, where I was used to going outside with my friends for a smoke every break, I felt very strongly compelled to follow suit. No other cons, man, I quit smoking ! How is everyone else doing ?? Anyone need an e-buddy ? Follow your goals !
