Howdy, All-Y'all, [uniquely-special], Wealthy Affiliate members and the Wealthy Affiliate community; - "TheAbie - Were You A Smoker And Have You Given Up?"
What's your experience?
As far as mine is concerned, it is straightforward.
One day I decided to flick it out of the window, and the smoke was history.
I gained some weight initially, but then I was in shape.
After that period, I was back to it two times, the first time because I couldn't cope with my mom's passing away while still very young.
And the second time was out of pleasure.
But now permanently smoke-free.
Anyone can when they FIRMLY decide.
(Short, sweet, and right on point.)
Thoughts are welcome. ✌

Hello Abie. I smoked for 27 yrs. I was on the stretcher at my hospital getting ready for surgery on my appendix, the doctor came in said empty your pockets and when I placed my smokes in the tray. He said I won't be able to do that for a couple of months. My appendix had exploded inside and was wreaking havoc on my inners, gang green was setting in 5 hrs later I was in icu. Recovering I had 26 staples from my belly button to my right hip. 12 staples above my belly button and 4 staples beside my belly button with a tube and bag taped to my side.
I quite that day 4 20 15. And haven't touched them since. My birthday is 4/25. Lol.
Yes I smoked but I gave up 33 years ago. Giving up is hard but worth it I just went cold turkey I told everyone I knew that I was giving up smoking and never smoked again.
To anyone that smokes if you give it up you will be better off.
Yes I smoked from a young age, I loved it and smoked anything, dock leaves, fern sticks, cane, and moved onto tobacco, never did drugs, and pipe and cigars, I just loved it and was a heavy continuous smoker till I gave up at 42 years old for health reasons, and and I had wrecked my lower front teeth.
I suppose I was lucky as I reached a stage where I couldn't stand the smell on myself or my clothes.
It was hell ,I went trough drug withdrawal symptoms, dizzy, nausea, blurred vision, stomach cramps and more, but I stuck to it and the withdrawal symptoms gradually wore off over 12 months and I then and still do hated smoking, I basically walk away from anyone smoking.
Benefits, all the things Abie mentioned plus, stopped coughing, clear chest, better circulation.......smoking was the worst thing I ever did to myself.
I started smoking at 13 when my mom died. I have 5 sisters and we all used to smoke. The six of us went to an acupuncturist to quit. We smoked all the way there and then threw our cigarettes in the garbage can outside her office. She put each of us in separate rooms but we could all hear my oldest sister yelling "ouch" over and over which made everyone else laugh and it didn't work and we grabbed our cigarettes on the way out. Then we went to a group hypnotist and got kicked out of the room for laughing. I still laugh when I think about it. Finally I quit using the Allen Carr book. That is the only thing that worked for me. I thought it was so hard to quit!

I have been a smoker for over 40 years. Although, I did quit twice for 9 months at a time a few years ago. I have entirely too much stress in my life to quit right now. I do know that with every inhale, you take seven minutes off your life. (My son made a point to tell me that when he was a teenager and trying to get me to quit. HE IS NOW A SMOKER!!)
Congrats on being smoke freeeeeee!!!
