This article touches on the topic of not quitting just because others tell you not to smoke. But there is
"somebody" who often gently tells you to please not smoke who you should give full attention. That "somebody is "your
Smokers are generally warned by their bodies that smoking is harming it. They are warned from the day that they
took their first painful puffs, to the day that they took their last dangerous drags too. Coughs, wheezes, aches and pains, lethargy, headaches, stomach
aches, tingling extremities, chest pains, and a host of other symptoms often permeate a smoker's life--all little signals that often go unheeded until
the body stops warning of dangers and just lets an x-ray or a cardiogram give you one big warning or worse, stops giving you little warnings and just sets
it up for a coroner to have to explain to your loved ones how cigarettes just ended your life.
It is important that you listen to your little signals when you are a smoker. It is also important to listen to
your body when you quit, although at times, you are going to have to use your mind to override some little messages your body is sending you now. This is
especially important in the earlier days of a quit, when your body is still in physical withdrawal and telling your mind that to stop it is as simple as
taking a puff. Taking a puff does not stop withdrawal; it just staves it off for a few moments and starts a whole new extended withdrawal cycle over
To bring this cycle to its natural conclusion and then to its permanent end is no more complicated that just
listening to your mind now reminding you to never take another puff!

Enjoying my newfound Freedom and Healing for Five Days, 15 Hours and 7 Minutes, while being allowed to live an extra 7 Hours, by avoiding
"lighting up" 96 nasty cigarettes that would have chewed $8.62 from my income.
I had to edit the post a bit because as you know we really keep all politically charged topics off the board. I guess I will let you in on something though.
I get nervous when clinic people come up and look like they are going to hug me. I am never sure during the withdrawal process that the aren't really
coming up to choke me.
