"I want 20 a day, every day, for the rest of my life, till it cripples, then kills me."
UGH! The reality, the truth in that statement, could literally make me sick. I've been here for a a little over 8 months, and once ina great while, I think I want the 'smokers lifestyle' again, whatever that was...the sickness of it....and I remember WHY I quit in the first place.
Then I come back here to read what my quit brothers & sisters have said regarding my addict thinking, because I know when I come in here I read & educate myself on my addict thoughts. I am NOT the only one having these feelings. I am NOT nuts, I am an addict and I just have to remember to NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF! One Day at A Time.
I am a NON-SMOKER! Image & and that, I can truely be Happy about, every aspect of knowing that about myself, makes me happy. The funny thing about trying to miss a cig is I don't feel an ounce of happiness in that....
Thank you whyquit.com & Freedom brother & sisters, keep it up. I pass along info to everyone I know about this site, & they look so interested, they write the site down, and even if they don't smoke, they say they're gonna pass along the info.

Wow, thanks Joel for the thread and Parker for bringing it to the top. This is exactly the message I need to read right about now!

My Junkie brain has been coming up with some brilliant arguements lately on different ways I could successfully have one (and just one) once in a while. (I could get into the specifics of my junkie's argument, but I don't think he deserves any screentime.)

I wouldn't have succumbed, anyway, but this message really helps add some firepower to my "No."

Thanks a bunch!

One? Why intentionally tease your mind?
Truth?
One is too many and a thousand never enough!

Look at smoking in real terms and you will walk away from each urge with a sense of relief and accomplishement. Fantasize about them and you may walk away with a feeling of deprivation. You are not depriving yourself of anything, you are ridding yourself of a deadly addiction. See them for what they are and you will stay forever resolute to never take another puff!
