I was smoking my last cigarette last night - and enjoying it for being the last one - and I was laughing at it, like, "You're beaten now! Haha!" when all of a sudden it leaped from my hand, burned my neck slightly, then made down my top, trying to burn the rest of me obviously. That was the Devil and he was mad I'm p sure.

There was a bit in Walden also where he was on about like an evil genius inside him who works separate to him and I definitely get that feeling a lot. Anyone else? I can pull off bad stuff so perfectly and even not having meant to, but when it comes to good stuff my aim isn't so true... I think it's a psychological issue needs resolving before I'm absolutely awesome to be honest, and I'll get there!

Coming up on cigarette free for about 20 hours. This is a record for me across the last 7 years about.

I find that the best strategy to quit smoking, is that whenever you get a burning desire to smoke, just inject yourself w/ heroin. Worked for me, and now I have been smoke-free for 5 years.

I just don't seem to have any craving whatsoever to be perfectly honest, lol. It's kinda crazy. I did some praying to my grandfather and God and stuff last night; maybe that has something to do with it ;D

Pretty sure he's telling the truth. Nonsensical commas by him and use of numbers suggests truth.

If you're operating on sheer willpower, and 22 hours is your record for 7 years, it sounds like you're doomed to fail eventually. Your frequent updates suggest that smoking has been on your mind at multiple points during the day. Now I really have absolutely 0 knowledge of what you're going through must be like, but I'd imagine you'd need to take more prohibitive measures if you never want to relapse again.

Psh, I'm literally bouncing around the place all day singing 'I'm quitting cigaaarettes! I'm quitting cigaaarettes!' I got this, man. Bring on day 2!

000ike I once fought an entire street full of people, like 15 of them, and won. That'll tell you something about my willpower.

That says less about how much willpower you have and more about what kind of weapon you were using at the time, or which kind of school bus those 15 people had just gotten off of.

Nope, have a fresh box very close to me. Seems the best way, sheer force of will. Also, my mother smokes heavy and she's in the vicinity. Good fun teasing her about her smoking too, btw. She hypnotized herself trying to quit a few years ago and still couldn't quit, lol. She's cranky! Whoa I'm feeling weird now though.

Lol, I didn't have any weapon. I got attacked by a crowd of gypsies one night and just pretty much destroyed the lot of them :D Well, I wasn't going too brutal but laughing at their efforts and turning them upside down and stuff and they all remember me to this day lol. One of them is supposed to be a tough guy around the place and his buddy called him back to deal with me lately, only when he realized it was me he turned and legged it lol I'm kind of a big deal ;D

Is this a joke? you're wasting your own time. Even if you did quit, you'd still be at risk of cancer and respiratory illnesses being around someone that does. I suggest you take all yours and her cigarettes and throw them away. Throw away all of your lighters too. And, I don't know, get a patch or something.

I started in a bid to make her quit actually, her and my little cousin. I'm just gonna be as cheeky and belittling as possible in my quitting now and hopefully that'll get them off them.

Lol. Wait until you see someone enjoying a cigarette and tell me you don't want one.
