Why do you refuse to buy nicotine gums? Smoking addict....
Because I don't want to be addicted on nicotine gums/patches. Yes it helps, but most people find it hard lay down nicotine gums/patches.
To be honest, i rather smoke again than eating those gross gums.
Often my lungs "just" wants a cloud of cigarette smoke, so I eat some mentos mints to give my lungs a "fresh kick", so I can breath better.
Sad to hear about your father, something tells me that, the same going to happen with my mother if doesn't quite soon.
-No, I am always clean

If you can find an appropriate substitute for relaxing it will help. Just make sure the new habit doesn't take you around areas where smoking is prevalent.
it's a shame that your friends commend you on quiting but keep right on puffing around you. That doesn't seem very encouraging.
While my story is humorous, I hope others see the serious side of it as well, that even at a young age, a person can make up their mind not to smoke and then follow through with that same commitment through life. I can add another one here as well. I am 40 years old and have never had alchohol, not a single drink. Because I made up my mind that I didn't want to do that. I am not saying that makes me better than anyone, just pointing out that a positive thought process, a good goal oriented and structured life, will help alleviate the need for forming 'bad" habits.
By the way, I finally voted and I think you can quite, just keep moving forward one day at a time.
Well, I brush my teeth four times a day, train sometimes, eat a lot of healthy food, and going out more often. What irritates me most, is that I have hard time consecrating while I am studying Japanese.
Its kind of hard to relax with all this energy, that I am not used to. But usual work out or drink some tea - Then I am more relaxed.
Yeah Its sad, my friends don't seem to respect that I don't want smoke near me.
Next time I break their cigarettes!
I completely agree with you, its good to make rules for oneself. I made a lot of rules for myself when i quit smoking.
Like; Never eat at McDonalds, don't drink coffee, soda, or alcohol and so on.
Even if its only 19 days that I'd quit, I feel a lot better in many way!
Thanks for voting! I will.

True, I sometimes to go out at parties, where there’s a lot of smokers.
I know its a danger zone, but I believe in myself. Its hard to ignore it because 90% of all I know, are smokes.
But like you say "Have a goal in mind and stick to it" is the best way. The only one I promise not to smoke again, was myself. And that’s good enough!
Yup, I smoked about 10-16 cigarettes for about 4-5 year. I had a lot "not smoking for 2-3 days" But I really believe myself on this one.
I got this tip to save the money that would normally use on cigarettes and use them on something else.
And I did! I when out and bought myself 4 mangas and some good headphones, I want to do that more often
I don't need a doctor, I think myself as a Non-smoker now. And when I have the urge to smoke, I always tell myself that I have this felling for a few minutes.
Thanks very much for all the help, It does really help.
It would be embarrassing if I’d start smoking again, but it won’t happen.
