Best of luck to you! Lungs are a terrible thing to waste!
Not to mention now you won't be wasting all that money...it costs well over $100 bucks a month to smoke for most. And you won't have to clean up the mess when you dump your ashtray. Nor will your clothes reek of it! So many positives. :D

Quitting is easy...I did it fifteen times before I actually gave it up! :grin: After some forty years smoking I went to a good acupuncture specialist, had one session and have not even wanted another cigarette for over a year. Best of luck as you start down the path of being an ex-smoker! It certainly is not easy but it surely is worth it.

I once was a smoker, now I am not, and I am so happy, I don't miss the cigarette at all.

I don't think it was as difficult as I thought it would be. The first fortnight was the worst, after that there were no problems at all. My nicotin abstinence was very situational. I thought that it would get worse the longer it was since my last cigarette, but it was not like that at all. My worst abstinences came in situations where i used to have myself a cigarette. Like when I sat down to watch tv, or right after dinner, or when the working day was over. I kept myself busy at those times with other things. I drank a lot of coffee, just to fill myself up with a different poison, I went to see my friends, so I could sniff in their cigarette smoke while I made myself very proud of not being a smoker sitting in the same room as a smoker without smoking.

Good luck with your quitting, I know you can do it, I did it.

Hi Chenzen

I work nights too and that's definitely the time I used to smoke most. Hope you're doing well
