STOP SMOKING;( a great gift to yourself, your family & friends)

Hi ALLYOU SUCCESSFULNON SMOKERS:
NANCY; so glad you've put smoking behind you ;sure wish all smokers would/could do that
.I feel unable to"preach"since I never was a smoker butI sate o see people wait till they are on oxygen tohave ung cancer or need tobe on oxygen tanks to breath; before quitting.I know it's not easy( hubby quit after smoking 3 packs a day for about 20 years....
STOP SMOKING!( ( a great gift to yourself, your family & friends)

anybody wants to quit;I'll telll you what helped him:...... he went to a doctor who used aversion therapy.
A dirty ashtray filed w/ butts was next to each patien..t. who also had electrodes on their hands & sat at a control switch.You were alowed to smoke ifyou really wanted to; your partner( a fellow patient
zaped you; .He didn't ike zapping his partner; she had no problem zaping him.That made it easier for him to zap her.Then the current wasraised & the zapping became more painful.STOP SMOKING! ( a great gift to yourself, your family & friends)


Theewas alsolso h hy[npsis support( .Between the stink & sight of a dirty ashtray the hypnosis mmessage to stop;& painfull electric shocks if you tried to smoke & a strong desire toquit, he was able to stop:
STOP SMOKING ( a great gift to yourself, your family & friends)

ANOTHER HELPFULL HINT: ful hint: eat fresh pears often
.There is some natural chemical( in pears)that helpSto tame the nicotine cravinghE'S He'sno70 yo & stli no longer desires to smoke
STOP SMOKING
.( a great gif to yourself; your family & friends)
He also got off the couch & began walking.He found that his lungs cleared out( after much early coughing ) hebegan to walk nd hen run..He ran 2 full & 2 half marathoninon one year after he stopped smoking..He had tried to quit many times before w/o success. The combination of exercise,aversion therapy& htpnosis finally got him to become a non-smoker.This guy had inhalled 3 packs a day for over 20 years, was a realcocuch potato turned into a slender( sz 32" waist again) marathon runner at the age of 41years....STOP SMOKING.( a great gif to yourself; your family & friends)

Like I said in the other post I smoked my last one Oct. 10, 2005.  I used those patches for one or two months and I prayed and prayed.

I was a smoker for about twenty years I quit cold turkey on September 24th 1997.I went to the Emergency Room that morning with horrible chest pain,They ran all the test and I was told I had a heart attack at the age of 40.One week later I had double bypass surgery.I never had another cigarette.Any time I wanted one all I had to do is look down at my chest and look into the eyes of my sweet little boys who were seven and fourteen at that time.God has blessed me and allowed me to finish raising these two fine young men.

Good for you all who have quit smoking.  Lucky for me I never started.  I really can't be around people who smoke as the smell really bothers me.  I used to get migraines if I was in a place were people were smoking.  Fortunately a lot of places have non smoking restaurants so that is a good thing.

I was never a smoker and my three children and their father were smokers. My daughter, fortunately, stopped smoking many years ago when she became pregnant with her first child 22 year ago. My sons periodically stop and then go back to smoking. I tried to talk to them, since their Dad died at 44 from a stroke which I am sure was caused in part by his smoking. My sons have passed their Dad's age and I am still concerned, but have learned to keep my silence since it seems to agravate the situation. Any suggestions??? I cannot understand the addiction since I never smoked and my Dad, who smoked unfiltered "Lucky Strikes", "Camels" etc. (3 packs a day), decided to throw away all cigarettes at age 44 and never smoked again. He lived to be 96 and did have a touch of enphysyma due to his earlier smoking.
