I donít really know how this works.

If you want to quit, canít you just stop smoking? What happens to your body when you stop? Is it just like 2-3 crappy days? Or is it like a month of being miserable?

It's very emotional, a lot of times feels like a lot of feelings and thoughts are pushed away when I'm smoking, when I quit, I have to face my regrets and memories. It's not that bad, but it's not pleasant. It's more about the mind than the body, the body isn't really affected. It's more like going to the same gas station for 20 years, but then you can't anymore because of some stupid reason. You pass it and want to stop in and chat, but you have to stay away, and you are driving in a circle, and keep passing that gas station. Eventually your circle gets bigger and you don't pass it as often, that's the goal. It's all mental, you have to change all your thoughts, people say it's in the mind, but it's more complicated than that, your mind has to change well beyond just saying you won't do something, because if your mind doesn't believe the reasons you won't do something, you're going to do it.

At least you are being honest. :) But just think of all the ways your life will be better if you quit. Healthier body, longer life expectancy, more money in your pocket. :)

The non-smoker version of myself is much better, feels better, more motivated, I don't know why I give up and give in. I want to try again but not now. I have a feeling I havr to do it without anyine knowing for it to work and I have to lie about it while I'm quitting for some time.

I'm so nauseous today, there is so much nicotine in my blood from the patch.

I have just made up my mind, I will never quit smoking, might as well face it. I'm not going to quit now, I'm not going to quit tomorrow.

Quit being a quitter. You have to want it.

Have you ever checked for a smoking cessation group in your area? Some people do better with other people trying to do the same thing.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

I was trying reverse psychology on myself, but I didn't succumb to it.

You should make a bet with someone on this forum that you can quit. Iím sure someone will take it.

Iím sure thereís an easy blood test that can confirm the results.

$1000

Thatíll get you to quit.
