I'll have to change my vote now. :roflmao:
Stopping tobacco was one of the hardest things I have ever done and it was at one of the most stressful times in my life. Glad I did it though because I don't think I could still afford a 3 pack a day habit any longer.I smoke both, in fact smoking the other got me addicted to tobacco.
I do however hardly smoke any of the other *these days* of being old lol and I'm constantly flipping between trying to quit cigs using vaporisers/E-cigs and getting drunk and smoking a real 1 *sighs*
Apparently cigs are more addictive than heroin- which I can attest to. That was easy to stop compared to these little buggers :S
I always say go with your gut feeling. Two of my doctors even told me to trust my gut feelings because I am almost always right even when they can't figure me out right away.I smoked for 33 years and finally quit on January 31, 2014. I miss it every day; but knew that I had to quit. In addition to the epilepsy, I had stage 3 cancer. Go with your gut feeling and you will know if/when you need to quit. Don't make excuses why you may still smoke (I did that thru chemo, surgery, and radiation) but go with your intuition of when you are feeling good. What they put in cigarettes to keep us addicted is very sad, if I can quit, anyone can!
Yep, 60 per day. I ordered Smoking Joe's over the internet from an Indian reservation. Reservations are, or were, not subject to the same laws as the states and did not charge tax. Most of the cost of cigarettes are all the taxes.That's 20s right? Jeez I thought I was bad lol
Good on ya
I was once a smoker (for a little while) so I do understand...I meant I don't understand why some people can't quit...for me it's no prob...but then again I have my own "addictions" that I can't seem to quit...so now I got my feet covered in honey and it's difficult to remove...I tried smoking again about a month ago when I was really stressed and I almost barfed my brains out...literallyYou have to be a smoker to understand all this. If you aren't then it just makes no sense.
DITTO. as soon as I am somewhat adjusted and can talk I reach for my purse. it makes me feel somewhat like the normal me, as many of you know how strange you feel when coming out of a grand mal.After having a seizure, a cigarette helps me make the panic disappear, start talking again, get out of that dark place.
my first neurologist said the same, that I needed to make changes in my life with this new disease but not to worry about quitting smoking. my neurosurgeon on the other hand continues to say the opposite, he's like 'c'mon, smoking is bad for you what do you want me to say.'Actually, he just said “that’s OK” and told me that neuros are the only doctors who don’t force people to quit.
