u told us in a previous thread.
that's really a bad habit u got there.
it is, kinda..
i've stopped them once in my life since i began, my wife was pregnant with my first kid and i had the extra motivation to do it. I still enjoyed it, but decided to let it go.
It was tough. A habit is a habit, it's hard to change your life, but i did.
Wasn't smoking for 3 years, gained 30 kilos for the first 6 months. Never managed to get rid of all of them.
Then restarted, which was more stupid than the fact i don't have enough will or motivation to stop again now.
But it was the perfect set, i couldn't resist, it felt like taking drugs and got hooked back in no time.
It was in Tuscani over some good whiskey, on a veranda with my boss at the time, Italian 50yo sales manager, very interesting guy, knows it all, also the bad habits...the red Marlboro he was smoking looked like the perfect completion of this awesome evening and despite his advice and warnings, i was too cocky to understand that even after 3 years of not smoking even one cigarette it just takes a couple breaths in to get hooked back.
I'm probably not stopping any soon, which is a disaster, but i have to be honest - not enough disk space to have such a nerve wrecking adventure atm...
