Ok guys I need help. I've been hiding this from everyone I know (and myself) but I'm starting to notice some of the physical effects smoking has had on my body and it really bothers me. I've been smoking on and off since I was about 15, and it didn't become a genuine habit until about 6 months ago and I'm already noticing that I need to stop.

Cold turkey probably won't work. I have crappy willpower. But at the same time if I have a pack open in my purse, I'm a chimney..

A friend and I are going to be quitting together, she's just quitting cold turkey but I doubt I have it in me to follow through with that.... Any tips on trying to control myself? Ugh. I feel so stupid coming here for help with this but I can't turn to my family and I don't want to be a burden to my friend, who has her own habit to kick.

Take one or more of the Borderkids out for a run/training session every time you would reach for a smoke? You can't breath and smoke at the same time. And get the new Blaqk Audio CD with what you save on not buying a carton of cancer sticks.

Im of no help, Im still quitting every day.

I need a week away from here in order to quit with no stress. I should have broken my brothers arm as he was the source of my stress while I was in Chicago. Maybe a week at my dads with none of his danm projects, just relaxing would do it.

New tobacco taxes are soon. Mainly middle class and poor people smoke. The taxes are for the children, yet they are gonna impact the poor the most. The gov wants people to smoke for their pet projects. That should be a motivator for any smoker to quit.

Dont get me started on gas taxes.

Aww, blue, come stay with me! Tomorrow evening I'm going to take the boat to my favorite bay, drop anchor and just hang out with Eve and fall asleep looking at the stars. After about 10pm the water is as still as glass, and the only noises are the fish jumping and the crickets on the shore. It's times like that when I get the urge to light up, but it's relaxing even without the **** cancer sticks.

Take up fly fishing RD. With conditions like that the fish are biting and you have no urge to smoke.

I love fishing - that's a good idea! Last time I was out at the bay, the fish were jumping all over the place and I remember thinking if I just had a net and a **** worm to dangle over the water, I'd catch a ton of fish. I don't have a fishing rod or anything here though. *Sigh*

I've never tried fly fishing, but there's a store around here dedicated to just that. D'you think they'd help me out with what to get, if I went in to buy some gear?

Fly fishing is something you can lose yourself into, there are times it dosent even matter if the fish are biting.

Grace, it's a fly fishing STORE . . . .they'll be thrilled to help you get a fly fishing outfit together, lol! But get Blue and Buckshot to tell you what you really need so you don't end up buying a bunch of expensive stuff that you don't.

That's exactly what I need, blue - a good hobby. When my hands have nothing to do and I'm bored, I reach for the cancersticks. I fidget compulsively and a cigarette is the perfect thing to keep my hands busy aside from petting a dog or.. inappropriate things.

I'll see if I can get someone to take me to that store tomorrow. In the meantime I guess I need to figure out what I should be catching. And get a license. Eek.
