I once quit for 4 years and still find it hard to believe that I ever started again. I used to be a pack a day smoker a year and a half ago, but I've gotten into a habit of smoking about 4 cigarettes everyday and have been stuck there. It's not even enjoyable anymore because I have a digestive disease since August of 2017and smoking definitely affects how bad it can be and how I feel. I'm not really digesting food very well right now so I can see a difference right after I smoke a cigarette. There are many times that I only smoke 2 cigarettes in a day. I've always been a stress smoker. That's when I have the most trouble. I know it's more of a habit than anything because in the morning after my bathroom routine, showering, brushing my teeth, dressing... all the normal things I go to the kitchen to smoke a cigarette and there are lots of times that I don't really even want it. It's just part of the routine. Stress is where I'm going to have to find a replacement. Aside from that I think I can do it because I don't smoke away from the house and at home I smoke at one spot in the kitchen, no where else. I have to do this for myself because I've lost 150 pounds and have been malnourished from this digestive disease and it has to get better.
