    Those of you who smoke cigarettes or have smoked in their lives know that smoking is much more than just 'a bad habit' that everybody tells you to kick. It's an addictive habit, and if manage to get out of the nicotine hook, the feeling of smoking and the act of smoking a cigarette is the most powerful hook. The physical effects of giving up the hourly dosages of nicotine wear off in approximately 72 hours (the worst of them anyways), but the urge to pick up a cigarette, light it and just hold it in between your fingers and inhale the smoke at times is very, very tempting.

    And surprisingly, I found that browsing BHW took my mind off the matter. Whenever a friend went to have a smoke, even with my phone I would open BHW and read some of the threads. It calmed me down and let me focus on something that did not include joining my friends for a cigarette. It swayed the temptation to the side and helped me get over it. Now I quit smoking almost two months ago, and couldn't be happier.

    Honest thanks where they belong, mates. Cheers.

    Great job man!! I quit smoking when my son was born. At the time I was so broke I could either buy diapers and baby food or cigs. So I bought baby stuff and slowly got over my addiction. So any of you who cant quit smoking I guess all it takes is BHW and children!! Peace

    Congratulations! For most ex-smokers, even several years later the small spark inside of them wanting to smoke a cigarette is still there. But with the right mentality you can physically stop anything. Nothing in life NEEDS to be an obligation. :)

    I heard having kids was the best way to do it, but I don't think I want to have kids around in my flat that I'm sharing with friends from uni,so I had to take plan B :D But I'm sure in the future I might further motivation from that direction, only time will tell.

    That's a bit tricky I guess, but you can do it mate :)

    I might just take you up on that, I did set my "cheat day" to be a cigar and a glass of whiskey if something is worth celebrating ;)

    Thanks!

    And by the way, our dear friends at the IRS might have a different opinion on the obligation matter :D

    that's great! however the other BHW method works too. basically you waste so much time in the lounge that eventually you won't have enough money to buy smokes in the first place!

    the "lounge method" also helps with dieting and drinking too much.

    :D
