Re: I can't take it anymore! Wife smokes, I don't. Tips are welcome!
I thought about smoking for an hour and a half straight with an intensity on par with a hormone filled teenager in a yoga class.
Haha! Love the analogy.
Yeah, quitting is a PITA, no doubt about it. When I was a smoker I hated cigarettes and it still took me a couple years to really quit for good. I really didn't like anything about them, except after I smoked I didn't feel like I needed a smoke right then. I've been off smokes for probably around 4 years now (maybe longer) and after about a year off I really lost the desire for cigarettes. I don't crave them at all, not when drinking, not after sex, never (thankfully).
Just keep on it. When I quit I started taking fitness more seriously and that really helped me want to stay off because I started breathing a lot better, over a little bit of time I was able to do long hikes without hacking a lung - it really helped for me. Just keep on it!
