I am a former smoker,I had smoked from the age of 15 to 27 :o .Ive been clean for 2 years
.I had read this column from Anne landers and that started my journey to a smoke free life
.It pointed out the posotive side of quiting,I gave the column to a friend I'll see if he stills has it! -I gave up beer and coffee for three months
, That was the toughest battle! There was a ban on smoking in business'* ie:bars and restaurants that kinda helpmed me out aswell.I went cold turkey,I got rid of matches lighters and ashtrays. My social life was non existant for ahwile and spent about 4.8 million on gum and sun flower seed'* .But it was well worth it.I used to drink tobasco like water now i can barely handle it,My taste buds became alive :P .No more yellow teeth ,bad breath or cigarete burns in clothes or carpets. I can also compete in a marathon now where as i couldnt walk up the stairs without breathing hard.I felt so good when my one year aniversary being clean was up I light a stogie
.Havent touched a cigarette ,joint,cigar,man not even a peace pipe since.
Going cold turkey does work ,Im living proof.
