Default Need ideas

Ok lets say hypothetically I have a girl im talking to and I really like her and she really likes me. The topic of smokers got brought up and she said if I smoked she wouldnt be with me anymore......So I said I didnt smoke.....So guess what I need to quit doing before I come home.lol

I dont come home for 7 months, so im wondering if anyone has any ideas. Iv tried quitting before and iv realized after about a week its not physical AT ALL. It all turns mental. So are there any activities to get into or any tricks that will lessen that mental urge to smoke i could use. I tried quitting 2 weeks ago before we even had this convo and i lasted a week.

Can't help you. I see a Therapist, and she's using hypno-therapy on me. Down to 10 smokes a day. 2 months ago, roughly 2 packs a day.

Get home, nail her, then roll over and light up. Who cares if she leaves after that.

I wore the patch and kept a bag of Airhead suckers in my truck and a pocketful of said suckers at all times. Beating the motion habit is hard as hell, especially when driving.

What are you dating a senior in high school? Listen up junior, if you let women tell you what you can and can't do, well, you're going to get f*****, and not so much in the sexual way. You don't see how silly that bold statement is? Obviously she doesn't really like you all that much if it boils down to smoking.


With that being said, quit smoking while you're a young lad now as it only gets harder to quit the older you are. It's all mental. If you REALLY want to quit, then you will not let temptation get to you. If you just want to quit to satisfy your love bird, well I don't see you stopping for another 6 months.

Unless you think she's "the one", then this is probably your best course of action.

Wether you stay with her or not, quitting smoking will be a win win for u. I've been trying to quit for a month now but don't have the will power. Especially when I drink.

Poor smokers.

My parents smoked for 30 years and they got this stuff called "Smoke Away" and quit soon after.

I recommend it to every smoker i see now cause i can't stand those coffin nails. Nasty.

A coworker of mine uses the electronic cigarettes and has not had a real one in over 6 months. Give it a try and wean yourself off the nicotine that way.

Oh man - drinking while trying to quit was the worse. I found the best thing with that is to stay off the hooch until your confident you can do it without smoking, then not drink again until you're on the patch. Smoking while on the patch has a - and I'm putting this gently - violent ending.

The main drawback here is you guys will go out for a month, split up and you'll be smoking again to spite her.

I smoked for 20ish years. Started when I was 13, quit when my daughter was born four years ago. You can't quit until you're ready, whether it's at 20, 30 or 80.

That said, the nicotine lozenges worked for me.

need to increase your dophimine..Eat organic eggs, apples, almonds, and bananas..
That it how I quit anytime a desire or craving came I went to the bananas which increase your seritonin making you not want to smoke..I never have had depression but nicotine messes with your happy hormones therefore making it hard to quit..So eat foods that make your more happy!

Suckers.....

Like tootsie pops or something. Or a hollow pen with some tissue paper stuck in it (something you can draw on....)

Or electric cigerrete.

Option B... find a woman that accepts you for who you are faults and all. (if smoking is considered a fault....) One thing i know is i had a buddy that stop smoking for his then wife and once she realized she got him to stop smoking she started trying to change everything else she didnt like too.

I have tried to quit several times. Last one I lasted 6 weeks (using the patch). Yet the end story is the same. I drank, then my will power and common sense went out the window, then I smoked. end of story. I thought after 6 weeks of not drinking and smoking, I could drink and not have the urge for a smoke. The 2 just go together.

Best thing that helps me is that I tell myself a final, definitive "No". And that's it. I will not think about doing something again. It works with girls, stupid ideas buddies of mine come up with - my own included, putting a halt to eating junk food, all sorts of bad habits or decisions that creep into the mind.

- Almost bought a very expensive watch... looked at one for quite a while. I love watches (only jewelry I would ever wear, don't even wear a wedding ring) and have a fairly extensive collection (Omegas, a Panerai, etc.) so this was a tough one. I finally said to myself "Self, NO. Too many watches already.". That was it. Decision made and the want is gone.

- This also helped me with acceptance when my father suddenly passed away when I was 27. I accepted that he was gone, I set a time limit for feeling sorry about it and crying (the length of a hot shower). This allowed for me to move on and celebrate his life!

- A long time off and on girlfriend that had to go who I had given a lot of time and love to (and ended up becoming an internet meme recently, BTW). This was the TOUGHEST one BTW because there are constant reminders.

- An old classic car I REALLY wanted to buy - before finishing the one I started.

- Changing back into a healthy lifestyle and quitting fast food and adopting a healthy diet and exercise.

Point is... MAKE A DECISION. KNOW THAT IT IS THE RIGHT DECISION. That IS the decision. It is done. From that point moving forward anything you come across contrary to the decision does not exist in your world (cigarettes for example).
