SMOKE!

I really need to quit smoking.

My grandfather was an avid smoker. He was playing basketball with me at the park when I was only a kid, probably six or seven years old. As he was smoking a cigarette, he looked at it, and I suppose it dawned on him that it tasted awful. He proceeded to flick it and never smoked since.

My father is also a smoker and still smokes to this day. He did all kinds of drugs in his day but the hardest one to let go of he says, are his precious cigarettes.

  2. You can expect a VERY difficult time with this, it is no joke about nicotine being the hardest drug to kick.

  14. There is a concept in philosophy called, "Weakness of the Will."

    Basically it's when you know the good, want the good, and yet still fail to do the good.

    You know it's good to quit smoking. You obviously want to quit smoking. So, don't let your will be weak, quit.

  15. Oh, I wish I saw that moment when your grandfather quit smoking.
    The problem with nicotine addiction is that no matter how strong your will to quit smoking is (that helps you to overcome the psychical aspect of the addiction), you will still feel physically ill from the withdrawal. I don't actually know how it feels, but I think it might even be comparable to actual pain, which is terrible.
    Best of luck to you. Nice blog, followed. And keep us updated on your smoke-quitting status :)

  36. how i quit smoking: through pack of butts out my window (lighter included) to a homeless man with a coffee and a meal. im sure it made his day, as it made mine. from then on ive been living off of +karma points feelings, and i must say its the easiest and greatest way to stay in shape mentally and physically. hope this helps.

  46. Feed your addictive nature with something else. When you give up smoking, take up another hobby that can fill the time.

    Blogging? Online video games? Gym?
