15 Day Challenge – Day 1 Fail

Yesterday was supposed to be the first day of my 15 day challenge where my main focus is stopping smoking. Sadly it didn’t happen.

I started the day convinced that I was going to be able to make it through my first day of non smoking. About half way through the day I had a load of things go wrong with my work and at the same time a bunch of other problems all hit me at the same time. I got so stressed that I gave in and went to grab a pack of cigarettes. It is amazing how these problems always come at the most inconvenient times. Also amazing how my brain will twist the stress of something to convincing me that I need to smoke.

Anyway, I have committed myself to getting back on track with my mission to quit the ciggies.

This is not some spur of the moment thing, it is actually something that I have been planning for a few weeks and these are some of the things I have set up for the next couple to help me become a non-smoker.

The first thing that I have coming up that will make this maybe easier is that I have a bit of travelling coming up where I will be sat on buses and trains for hours at a time, the big challenge here is breaking my usual habit of in between journeys where I would chain smoke knowing that I had massive journeys ahead of me where I cannot smoke.

The other clever little trick that I am doing is that I have a website project that I am working on at the moment that is in the ‘quit smoking’ market. Most of the work is carried out by my guys in the Philippines, but I still have to oversee it all. So my job for the next few weeks will involve reviewing content that is all about stopping smoking. I’m having to deal with all those nasty pics of cut open black lungs aswell as having too review alot ‘how to quit smoking’ articles and should pick up a few extra tricks to help me quit along the way. This niche site project is totally intended to help put me off the whole smoking thing and perfect timing, as with the new year ahead alot of peeps will be searching for info on how to stop smoking for the new years resolutions so once everything is in place it will also provide generate a nice little bit of passive income.

The other thing I have done is got loads of food supplies in with my intention that I am going to eat my way through this. I have heard so many times from people that successfully quit smoking that end up eating more. So I’m welcoming this and am gonna consciously make an effort to eat more and roll with it. I’m also using my replacement trick of trying to tackle a craving for a cigarette by instead eating a carrot for example.

My dirty little back up plan that I have sort of threatened myself with is the idea of using some extreme indulgence to put myself off cigarettes. The idea is that I would get a full pack of 20 cigarettes. cut the top and bottom off and smoke a full packet in one go. This would most likely make me sick or at least batter my lungs so much that I will not want a cigarette for a while, which would help kill my cravings. I am hoping that I don’t have to resort to using this crazy idea, but it is there as an emergency plan.

The other thing that I’m quitting again (well for the next 2 weeks anyway) is the coke. Which after the success of 30 days with out drinking any, I have now slipped back into dirty old ways and am drinking loads of coke again. I’m also continuing with my mission to write more whilst juggling several projects all at the same time, I’m thinking that keeping myself extremely busy will also help me stay off the cigs.

Oh these next couple of weeks are gonna be tough for me. I say, “Bring it on !”

Hey, and while we’re on the subject of challenges, have you voted for me yet ?

    Hard thing to do for smokers. I personally think that this is quite possible but what you need is discipline and commitment. Always think that it’s for you’re own good.

    Cold turkey is not a product but it is the process of stopping smoking by yourself without the use of any products. You pick a day you require to quit & you do it.

    The thing about smoking is that once you
    start the habit, it is very hard to stop, and once you try to stop and postpone
    your action, it is even harder. When you eventually start cutting back on
    cigarettes, you are always tempted to take just one cigarette and stop smoking
    “tomorrow”. This is made worse when you are anxious or stressed, as
    you are more susceptible to fall back to your smoking habit. However, there are
    many people who have stopped smoking successfully, so you should be determined
    and not lose heart. After all, smoking is bad for your health.

    Electronic
    cigarettes need no ashtrays. Since they do not produce any ashes or
    butts to dispose of. No more burn holes in your carpet, cloths,
    furniture, and car interior! Since electronic cigarettes are not lit
    and do not heat up it is impossible for you to burn a hole in
    anything. Simply put your electronic cigarette in your pocket when
    you are done.

    The best solution is to find some alternative of smoking like electronic cigarettes or chewing gums which have a little amount of nicotine.

    Smoking kills but people don’t quit this habit, i was a smoker too, thanks to my wife who encouraged and helped me to give up tobacco addiction.

  • Prashant Donekal

    you have to do it one day at a time, nothing else works. There isnt a challenge to quit smoking because you are putting your brain to work against itself and clearly this is setting up for failure. Smoking isnt a habit, its an addiction and you cant cure it by overindulgence, thats the most demented thing I have heard of – would you cure a heroin addict by overdosing him ? You seem to have the IQ of a goat!

  • Prashant Donekal

    The fact that 4 people have ‘liked’ this on fb proves that stupidity is contagious on fb, stop using facebook, you will lose your ‘eye q’ by 50 points

  • Prashant Donekal

    they still have nicotine in them so technically you arent quitting. You still need to buy them or order them online and keep supporting this habit, though it might cost less (for now it is but wait until big tobacco catches up with this technology). You cannot call yourself free until you stop this substance slavery

    smoking is very hard addiction that cannot be given up adn it takes lot of determination to be given up.

  • http://www.youtube.com/Steamlite Best E Cigarette Store

    Smoking habit is an addiction which is very tough to quit after using it once. Many smokers have tried so many things to quit smoking but they could not achieve their goal. So only 15 days for quitting smoking is not enough.

    Everyone
    who quits and gains a little distance from the difficult experience wants to
    share with those who are in more pain. I also tend to want to boil everything
    down into a few magic and powerful things. First, just let me say:
    “Congratulations!”; You are doing a very, very, good and great thing!
    Whatever got you motivated to try and quit? You do want to deepen that so much that you will not have to go thru this again!
    A big part of quitting smoking is letting go of the smoking routine you once
    had and looking at cigarettes differently. Hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment to help do this.I found this most effective in my part thanks to Joseph R Giove Living in Bay area.For me this Works & one sholud try.

    I am not addicted to cigarettes. I only smoke when my best friend is with me. But nowadays I am thinking a lot about cigarettes. I don’t want to be addicted. But I want to get rid of thoughts of cigarette that come into my mind.
