True story).

I've beeen trying to quit for a while but nothing seems to work. Bummer.

cigarettes are too expensive to throw out. but it's thursday. i'll buy the book this weekend (i just read a few pages on amazon and am psyched). I'll finish the packs over the weekend and read the book. I'm thoroughly anxious.
no Alan Carr, when I tried those first experimental cigarettes I never expected to still be smoking today.

Cold Turkey and you have to REALLY WANT TO GIVE UP!

Willpower is the only way. Patches prolong your addiction. You stop smoking, nicotine leaves your body after three days. You are no longer addicted to nicotine - yay! Your brain will be your enemy though and you will crave it cause it's a habit. Fight that and you will be fine.

I am six months smoke free and it feels great. I have my craving moments but they pass.

I went cold turkey. I read that it'd make my cock grow. It didn't do that, but I swear to christ my boner's are twice as firm now. I can hang laundry on this thing, and it's ready to go in no time. It might be in my head, but ever since I quit my sex drive is through the roof.

Carr's book really motivated me when I read it a few months ago. I quit for a few days but started again a few days later. Smoking may be a poor crutch but it was the straw that would have broke my Ex's back if I hadn't started again.

Divorce + No Cigs = Homicidal Urges

I bought the book for my current girlfriend and am ready to give it up again myself. I might try to download the audiobook.

I highly recommend the book. It's not magic but what it did for me was nearly miraculous. It helped me let go of the fear of quitting. That has to be the biggest obstacle for most of us. Even the thought of quitting scares the hell out of me.

NO FEAR!

Go for it, you have nothing (at all) to loose.

Actually, I think I just convinced myself. I'll be smoke free by the weekend. Who's with me?

EDIT: Just bought the audio book on itunes.
