Frustrated!

I think the lady below me said it best..... I even found that inspiring.... I say just do it..... don't look back, if only to pat yourself on the back... Like she said, in the future you'll look back and wish you had quit a long time ago!!

Just DO IT!!!!

Hey all, I've noticed a lot of people on here coddle people trying to quit. When I quit I had no one to help me, I just woke up, put on a patch for like a few days, and stopped using that bad boy too. Exercise and your own willpower are the only cures to quitting smoking....nothing else, especially rewards.... please, every day you're not feeling like crap from the stupid things is reward enough.... a little harsh some might say, well maybe so...... but smokers are always hiding behind some little excuse, so I believe being a little harsh is the right cure..... Post & prove me wrong p.s. I know this post might spark some controversy, it's not my intention to start crap, it's my intention to spark peoples imagination/willpower! Josh.... Smoke free & lovin it!!!!

How to use this site - or not

[font=Courier New]Text[/font]Yo I agree with Goofy..... I never really participated in any discussions, but I did read plenty of posts when I first came here. Quitting this crap was the best thing I ever could have done, now I'm stronger, smarter, and sexier (I was just looking for another "s" word there) If any new quitter was to read my post I'd just say this......... quit the cigs & live your life in any best way possible..... Oh yeah and work out too!!!!......
