I've been smoking less than a year and I'm not hooked. How hard is it to stop?
Don't kid yourself it takes every bit of will power and more.Less than a year you say, try and keep it that way forever.
Try and see.
Well this was four years ago now and I'm up to a pack-pack and a half a day. I don't think I've really tried to quit since then, but I'm a miserable bastard if I go a few hours without a cigarette. Quit while you still can, Danny when it's still a casual habit, that's how it started for me, but it wasn't long until I got hooked.
I guess there are some lucky people who can have a cig every once in a while and not be hooked, my girlfriend is like that, she'll have one or two when we're out drinking or something but 9 times out of 10 she won't touch them. She's been doing that for 5 or 6 years now too. Unfotunetely she's the exception and not the rule. I was hooked after a few months.
It really depends, I've been smoking off and on since I was 18 and I don't really feel as if I'm hooked. I can go a couple weeks with out a cigarette but I'll be out with some people and smoke 4 or 5. When I was in Europe last summer I smoked quite a bit (as it seemed to be the norm, especially in Spain), although once I got back I was fine.
I think quitting really depends on your personality and how your mind is wired. For some it's just a matter of not buying cigs and boom you've quit, but for others you really need to work at it. I have a buddy who's tried to quit for 3 years now and has been unsuccessful.
