It's spelled out in so many websites: Set a quitting date, get rid
of all smoking materials, drink lots of liquids, eat a balanced
diet, don't out drinking with friends, avoid smokers, confront
I was lucky. I didn't do any of those things (except not drinking
with friends but I didn't do that anyway). Didn't set a quit date,
still have lighters, matches and ash trays, didn't drink a lot of
liquids, wish I'd eaten better, didn't avoid smokers, not sure about
confronting triggers. But, again, I was lucky. Now, I did have
plenty of practice having quit on numerous occasions in the past. The
one thing I learned (the hard way) is that there is no such thing as
just one. Any quit, no matter of how long a duration, can be ruined
by that 'just one'.
I think (not scientifically) that age has a lot to do with it. When I
got to 60 my mortality was starting to stare me in the face. It
amazes me that I was able to quit (which should have been the hardest
task of all) and yet I can't get off my lazy ass to exercise and I eat
garbage. Corrections in these two areas would probably do a lot
toward extending my life. But, my cardiologist said he would rather
see me weight 171 (groan) than to smoke even one cigarette.
Well, this turned out to be a much longer post than I'd intended.
Three years, seven months, two weeks, three days, 16 hours, 7 minutes
and 56 seconds. 43813 cigarettes not smoked, saving $7,294.89. Life
saved: 21 weeks, 5 days, 3 hours, 5 minutes.
