i really need to quit and i guess i want to, but i cant get thru more than 2 or 3 days and i buy again i just spent most of the weekend alone and high, and i am about to start the same routine again, no smoke mon, tues, but by wed or thurs its like i am on autopilot and i just get the money out of the atm, and go buy..any thoughts...i started working out last june, that didnt help with the desire to smoke, althought i still do work out 4 times a week...i have no family here and have cut myself off from people i used to hang with because they dont smoke

Its hard, i won't lie,and it is keeping busy that is the hard part. I too broke from some friends so i wouldn't be tempted. Maybe spend the $$$ before the urge hits. Go to a movie,out to dinner or save it for a trip.

quitting is very hard. i wound up smoking for about 5 ddays after 7 weeks with none. i then planned on buying more, but i bought a game id wanted lol. but no extra money now! and i really dont want to smoke again. i like my personality without it more. its pretty much an easier life without the pot now. i think its just habit and wnating the initial high feeling. i have always liked the first bit after smoking, not the rest so much. i know for me i am not just having fun but trying to escape. but i feel good again about not smoking, and dont think i will again. addiction is so tricky though. good luck to you and anyone else who sees this! also, i almost feel like when i dont smoke, and have a good time, i hear "here comes the sun" in my mind. i LOVE the happiness i feel without pot, when it happens. just a wonderful experience

In the past yr I "quit" at least a dozen times. But now I am glad to say that I have been smoke free for 3 mths! I am super proud of myself. Before I quit this time I wrote down a huge list of things to do that I had been putting off, needless to say my house was immaculate lol. Also I went to the library and got some interesting reads, stayed away from my smoker friends, found an online support group and met up with old friends that didn't smoke. The key is to keep you mind busy so you don't obsess. Good luck!

You are taking the right steps by being here, exercising, acknowledging your problem, and avoiding it and those who use it. I would also recommend journaling (preferably hand written), throwing out your paraphernalia if you already haven't, and learning about the withdrawal itself and some of the symptoms you'll exhibit. There is an excellent article posted here underneath the article tab that can help you and just keep in mind that being conscious of the process and it's steps will help significantly more.
