I was a smoker - i am still in the process of quitting - i have not had a cigg in a few months now, but before that i smoked for 5 years or something like that, maybe longer, i met my husband, and he knew i smoked, but he didnt like it, we moved in together i did not smoke inside, but i started to "hide it" which makes no sense and he assumed i would quit i was respectful, brushed my teeth, spray on some body spray if not changed my top - most of the time i had a sweat shirt i call it the smoking sweat because i would take it off so i wouldnt be smelling like cigg as strong. so i tried to quit for like three years it is hard when you dont want to give it up - so i cut down alot, and i havent bought a pack since last year, i would bum a cigg from co workers or friends, socializing and etc - okay i bought a few packs SINCE then but i always gave them away i would take a few and give them away because here you cant buy singles anymore from packs, but if you buy singles it was NASTY - but now as a non smoker, i picked up a few hobby, beading and crocheting - i bring my projects to work with me, so i wouldnt get a cigg from a co worker, and if i was to sit around i wouldnt be bored i would be busy with my hands. it got easier when i really did want to quit - i think its easier when one wants to quit when they know its right (from what i was told by someone - he said it was easy because he wanted to quit and the time was right) i could be wrong but its my opinion, for me it was hard because i didnt want to quit. i really didnt. but now i am happier, i can breathe, i am doing work outs and not coughing and hacking - i really shouldnt be smoking anyways i have ashama better now to quit than it affecting me later
and now when i pass by smokers they stink really bad - i dont like it - i couldnt believe how bad i could have smelt but i think they need to smoke far away from the doors in public places, and not inside like it used to.
