Just wondering if anyone else on here is doing the whole Stoptober thing? For those that don't live in the UK, it's basically where you don't smoke for the whole of October, which in turn makes you 5 times more likely to quit for good.

I actually quit a few weeks ago, it will have been 3 weeks this Saturday, but I think the support from Stoptober might help me to keep going. If you live in the UK you can register online and get a free pack to help quitting.

It's not been too difficult for me so far. I've always been a social smoker, so naturally during the day I'm always fine anyway, it's just when I'm out that I get the odd craving. Going to gym regularly has definitely helped though.

Bruv, not smoking when you're out isn't quitting you daft prick. You were never a smoker to start with

Yes of course, because unless you smoke 50 a day it doesn't count.

Nah man, drinking and hanging out with friends is such a trigger. That's more about the 'habitual' part of the whole thing


Like for me, my triggers are coffee, alcohol, a full stomach and at the 1 hour mark of a film. Those are the things you've made into an event whenever you smoke, like the times when you most liked to **** up yr lungs.


Yeah, I gotta quit as well. I've cut down soooo much though. I hate how much you eat. My problem isn't as much about gaining weight as that my stomach starts to hurt from how much water I drink.

Having maybe 5 with your mates at the weekend definitely doesn't count though

I can't do it, not while I work in retail. If I try to quit while still working in a supermarket I am almost guaranteed to chew someone's face off.

2 weeks later my asthma is still messed up and I can't sleep
I might just start again

Im 10 days no ciggs myself, i feel alot better in general; mentally, physically. Ciggs may not kill you early, and they may very well kill you early in life. My philosophy is that they may not kill you initially but they just overall ruin your optimal life. I mean seriously people, when you quit ciggs your only making a 100% positive step in the right direction, healthwise, cashwise, the addiction requiring you to carry a pack of smokes with you at all times as soon as wake up? no more

You get a free pack of cigarettes... To help you quit smoking cigarettes?

UK, you so silly.

I "stopped" smoking in July. So now that was meaningless because I didn't quit in your specified month? **** you hipster. If I want to quit smoking, grow facial hair, or cut back on masturbation I will do it anytime of the year as I please. What next, I can only drink tea in January? **** off m8.

Smoking a some cigarettes once or twice a week when your out with your buds at the bar isn't even that bad for you, so why bother with quitting?

The people who NEED to quit smoking are pack-a-day dudes. And especially 2-pack-a-day dudes. I live in Japan, and I watch people who have already outlived my grandfather by 10 years lighting 100s with the butt of another, and I think--How the ****? It just goes to show that smoking isn't necessarily as dangerous as people make it out to be. I'd say smoking is at least 3 times as common in Japan as it is where I grew up and the people who live here have the longest life expectancy on the entire planet.


I smoke approximately 4-5 cigarettes a day, because I'm a busy dude, and because I guess I'm not one of those guys so addicted that they get the jitters or something. If you can smoke a pack a day and get lung cancer after 10+ years, then in my (never studied biology or medicine or mathematics) mind, since I'm smoking only a quarter of a pack, I should have to smoke for 40+ years before I could begin to get some real health problems (from smoking, that is). in 40 years, I'll be over 60 years old. That's when you probably oughta start dying anyway. And also, in 40 years I'll have more than enough opportunity to quit completely.
Listen. I'm sorry.

I guess my logic is that reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke increases the period of time in which it takes to develop health problems.

You're telling me that doesn't make sense?


If I eat 10 cheeseburgers every day I will get health problems very quickly. If I eat 3 cheeseburgers every day, I will still inevitably get health problems, but not nearly as quickly as if I were to eat 10 a day. This isn't logical?
Listen. I'm sorry.

i quit completely for a while, then had some stressful family shit and i've been smoking semi-regularly since then.

definitely not as much as i used to though. i don't buy packs anymore, just rolling tobacco and i bum cigs off people sometimes.

I stopped smoking year ago. Like three months ago I remembered how great it felt to smoke while drunk, so I bought a pack of cigs with the vodka I got. Smoked four cigs and threw away the rest.

Moral of the story is if you like to smoke, do not stop.

note to those trying to quit: don't forget that wellbutrin is a thing.

i don't smoke but i'm particularly interested in getting my parents to quit since they're starting to get a bit old and i don't want to lose them to lung cancer et. al. so far I've just been doing research for them on different methods, and i think they both would benefit from giving wellbutrin a try. just a matter of getting them to the doctor.
i don't know why i feel so dry

I'm a regular smoker. Going on about a year and a half now. I still enjoy it too much to want to quit, as much as I know I need to. Plus it's a social thing. I wish luck to everyone participating in Stoptober, I know how hard it can be.

Quitting is so easy, I've done it thousands of times! I find cigarettes to be the best tool for socialising and getting to know people. I've been smoking for 5/6 years now and now have 8/10 a day. Lately i have been feeling short of breath at times, not sure if its the cigarettes or i have gained some body fat :S Will quit someday, not this october though! Being a banker, a 'smoking break' really helps calm my nerves down so gonna carry on for a while...

It's true that smoking and eating greasy foods are both cumulative risks--if you consume more, you may see effects earlier and they may be more severe.

Unfortunately, things like cancer aren't that predictable.

As soon as I can get my hands on large amounts of dry weed, I'll totally quit smoking tobacco. The only reason I smoke baccy is because you don't get much for your money and most of the stuff I get is still fairly wet and doesn't even burn that well when you do dry it out.

One more argument for legalisation: Get me to stop smoking baccy

It's odd, I've never noticed any shortness of breath after 3+ years of smoking- this is even after I was up to a pack and a half a day for a short time while I was incredibly stressed.

I get withdrawals like a bitch though, I intend to quit once I quit my job but it's just completely not feasible at the moment.

There's a psychology term for it. If you always smoke when you're out, anything related to going out can trigger a craving.

Have fun with that, time to light up a cig. I'm at about half a pack a day, and I still enjoy them thoroughly.
