want to quit?
you clicked into this thread because you smoke too right?
ever felt like quiting?
ever seen a person with a hole in their throat?
ever had a family member die from cigarette smoking?

i dont know if this will work...everyone who is game, chip in 5 e-dollars.
this is for you smokers. we will pool our e-dollars and whomever manages to quit smoking completely, gets the e-dollars. get it?

we will hold meetings every week or month or day (whatever we all decide) to check in and see how all the contestants are doing. we will use the honor system in keeping track of who has smoked and who hasn't.

those who aren't ready to quit need not apply.

i myself am a smoker and in my line of work i see lots of old people with oxygen tanks or a bad cough, or some stage of emphysema. my grand father died of pneumonia as a result of smoking cigarettes.
i dont want it to have to come to that.

i will do my best to keep track of the pool, and the contestants.

the entry will be open for two weeks. Wednesday, the 12th of October the contest entry will be closed.


We will stop smoking on the 12th of October. those contestants that enter, have until then...

How long do we have to stop smoking for before we are considered non smokers? I mean I hope we all quit forever.

Is it possible to completely kick the habit? I used to hate smoking with a passion now I can't resist the little buggers.

yup, just be hinest, you dont have to lie because its up to you whether to enter or not. if you are ready to quit and serious about it, then there is no reason to lie. simple as that.

@cptcomet as to the finish date we will see, on how far it goes it may take six months to a year...i cant be sure.
its up to all of us contestants, as to how long it takes to quit and stay done.

do we want a month? we could call it a month for final entry and final smoking, how does that sound?

I quit all the time. I just love the little fuckers too much to leave them alone for too long.

Don't count me in, 'cause I gotta work this week and a wedding this weekend, and then lots of pages to write, and then beer to drink, and then the rest of my life ahead of me. I'm gonna need 'em.

think about when you are still trying to live the rest of your life when you are dragging an oxygen tank. when you cant even walk 20 paces because you ARE TOO OUT OF BREATH. and when ah,.. sorry. nevermind.

So I've got almost a week and a half, then I stop? Umm alright. I'll try. Do we have to make a video diary, or just a written blog about this or anything? That'd be cool.


yeah, count me in.

i really dont care. post a link to your vids, link to your blogs, otherwise just post here to keep track.
tell us your stories of being strong against the skinny little cancer-causing devils or tales of your shortcomings or just vent here. either way, let us know if you smoke or not, as often as you like.
i will be checking in here regularly to see if more contestants are available.

Alright cool, I'll probably end up being too lazy anyway and just post something like "Haven't smoked yet, want to destroy the world" in the thread.

Wait, does this include putting tobacco in joints?

depends on the amount of tobacco. more than one-fifth tobacco mixed with any other substance is illegal.
smoking blunts is ok.

any other details i missed?

I was never really more than a social smoker, though I did start to smoke at one point, but I stopped smoking anymore than occasionally while drinking (though I haven't touched a cigarrette now in probably two and a half years) straight away because I didn't want it to hinder my running when I started running competitively for my school.

I'd imagine the best way to quit is to find something fulfilling and meaningful to you that you can replace the void with - some people find writing music, poetry, creating art or even some other hobby, are all they need to take their mind off the cravings and keep themselves going; and as the passion for the new hobby grows, the addiction to nicotine should (hopefully) wane.


Edit: P.S Good luck to anyone who tries to quit here, hope you manage it.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

Well, I was only really doing it for the lolz so are you talking about real currency or just hypothetical 'chips' or 'e-cookies' etc. ?

If so, I think those of us not taking part, but betting on the competitors, should make up some odds for people first and have a separate, but related, official bet

Here's my e-money, im in. I smoke about 5 a day and i want to get fit like i used to be 2 years ago when i barely smoked. Also, i get chest infections easily and smoking dont help.
#29
I'd like to wish everyone lots of luck!

I can't quit completely but I'm currently cutting back down as I've had the worst summer of my life and have been really hitting the bottle, fags and non-prescription painkillers and it's costing me a fortune.

we are only counting tobacco/nicotine. smokeless electronic cigarettes DO COUNT. nicotine is nicotine.

I used to be on about 10 -15 a day over the summer, and when i was at FIB Festival in Spain in July i was smoking about 20 Marlboro Reds a day, because they were so cheap.

However, I did quit for 5 months this year and started again on my 21st birthday in May. I got a load of advice about quitting, which I'll post in the coming weeks
#38
@moggan we appreciate the advice (and by we i mean me)

sorry no Chiclets here.

My step-father quit smoking,he said it was not easy but when he hit 40 he just said "I'm gonna quit smoking" and he did.To help him he was ALWAYS chewing gum (regular),sucking on a lollipop or eating sunflower seeds.He also said he knew he was over cigarettes when he realized the smoke coming off other people smoking started making him nauseous,although I don't know if that happens to everyone.
