As above, its a vile addiction.







Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body... but rather to skid in sideways, totally
worn out, shouting
Holy ****... What a ride!!"

For me it wasn't about being cool. I started it because I was feeling really bored one day and soon it became an addiction, more of a helping hand. Helped me in my studies, helped me in traveling, helped me when I had to wait for someone. But it's a shame that it took me so long to quit it considering I was starting to feel the negative effects of it pretty early. In my last 2 years, it wasn't even fun smoking, I just did it to overcome any kind of misery and stress in life.

Are you sure it was related to the smoking then? It may have been a urine infection?
How has your metabolism been effected by stopping smoking?

Must have been awful trying to quit but you eventually managed it. Well done.
I expect you simply asked yourself if you really wanted to knock ten years off your life and the sensible answer was of course 'no'.

Some people with stress urinate a lot, so by smoking I reduced stress and I think it reduced my urination as well.
 
I am feeling far more happier and confident with life ever since I stopped it, I can feel the difference in the gym already. No changes to body weight though.

I reckon a lot of people, especially women, worry that stopping smoking will pile on the pounds.
Maybe I'm missing something, but perhaps a change in diet would solve that problem?

Smokers have something pleasurable to look forward to every time. You get that extra pleasure of smoking when you wake up, you get the pleasure of smoking after a meal, you get the pleasure when you smoke with your friends. So that pleasure itself acts as a 'stress killer'. But keep in mind, its all temporary.
 
After a few months or years, that feeling of pleasure is gone.

The message my dad always gave to those stopping smoking was that putting on a few pounds is thousands of time more healthier than smoking.
Stop smoking now..put the weight on, then worry about the weight down the line.

unless your smoking weed or something I see it as pointless.

I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

When I stopped I found I actually lost weight. I was training pretty hard at the time and the extra lung capacity just helped me work out longer and harder (oo er missus). So if I did eat more, I more than burned it off.

It's an illusion though. You only experience pleasure because it is ending your withdrawal symptoms. If you don't smoke then you don't have withdrawal from not smoking. Everything smells better, tastes better, you have more money for other things, that is a far greater pleasure than temporary relief of symptoms of withdrawal.
