Default Finally given up weed and cigs!

l started smoking at the tender age of 14 and and started smoking weed when l was 17 and l have smoked non stop since (l managed to give it up while pregnant three times but l always went back). Giving up weed was not as hard as l expected it to be but giving up the cigs was extremely harder, l was so used to going outside to light up and l then found myself with nothing to do. Reading was something l used to do to pass the time and l'm now going to try to get into excercise more. Has anyone here stopped?

Congrats! Although I know it will be tough to give up weed -- especially since you've been smoking since the age of 14, it has been done by those who truly abused the drug! At least you're doing it for yourself and no one else. That's the only way it can be achieved. You have to WANT to.

Congratulations, great news! My fiance is trying to give up both, focusing first on the cigarettes. Do you mind telling us how you did it, was it just reading and keeping yourself occupied? I'm curious because he has tried lots of different ideas to stop smoking but I think the only way to really do it is cold turkey. I'm interested to hear the opinion of someone who is a success story.

I quit 3 years ago and it's been the best. It took me a while to get over the residue that I kept coughing up though. But it's silly to exercise when you are a smoker. It kind of defeats the purpose.

I get what you're saying... but it's kinda the other way around: It's *essential* to exercise if you're a smoker.

Kudos on quitting though!
