Quitting – Rethink Tobacco

That smell was horrible!

I did it... I quit tobacco! After I quit, I rolled up the windows in my car and didn't go in it for a week. End of the week, I got in and WHOA - it was horrible! That smell was in my car, on my clothes, everywhere. Wow - I stunk! Not anymore - I was a smoker and I'm not now. Feels so good! If you are ready to quit, call the SD QuitLine at 1.866.SD-QUITS or visit RethinkTobacco.com/click-to-call/

Wow! I Stunk.

When I quit tobacco, I closed up my car and didn't go in it for a week... When I got in - WHOA! It was terrible! That smell was on my clothes, my hair, everywhere! That's what everyone who doesn't smoke smells. Sorry everyone!!! The SD QuitLine made quitting a whole lot easier. Now I'm smoke-free and life smells a lot better! If you are ready to quit, call the SD QuitLine at 1.866.SD-QUITS or visit RethinkTobacco.com/click-to-call/

No more monkey

Yeah, it was time. I quit smoking. It just got to be so much about the next tobacco fix. Like an annoying monkey on my back all the time. I tried cold turkey and that DIDN'T work, so I called the SD QuitLine. No more addiction, no more monkey. Smoke-free for five months. It's an amazing feeling!

Relax

Easy does it. Tobacco only relieves stress a few minutes at a time. Learning a new hobby lasts a lifetime. Grab a guitar, paint a picture, build a bird house, write a rhyme, bake a carrot cake. The bonus is, you'll have something new and cool when you're done. And your nasty old habit will be gone.

Monkey & the Billygoat

An odd couple fer–sher. Watch home movies of the two spending a few righteous days at the beach. Surf's up! Jumpin' the shark! Hangin' with the crabs! ... will there be a Meltdown? Dudes, get yer' goat-atudes on, and check it ouuuuuuut!

No worries…

When you call the QuitLine, you've got a friend. A coach to help you with this every day, every week, until you are tobacco-free. It's easier with support. We've got your back.

Stay calm

The QuitLine coach says "Relax, let the craving pass, and find something else to do with your hands." South Dakota QuitLine: Helping tobacco quitters stay calm since 2002. To get us in your lifeboat, call: 1.866.SD-QUITS.

Better smile

Oh yeah, your smile will improve, partly because you won’t have yellow, tobacco-stained teeth. But mostly because of how much better you’ll feel inside and out. So go ahead, make yourself even happier. Because everybody loves to see that smile.

Relax.

MARCH 9 @ 11:01 PM:  

It’s my 5th day without that monkey
and I already feel the benefits.
 

APRIL 1 @ 1:56 PM: 

No more monkey in my life!
One month smoke free.
 

Then on his own wall, he continues… 

_____________________________________________

JUNE 28: 

On the 1st, it will mark four months
of being smoke free. That’s crazy.
 

JULY 6: 

As the days grow older, I feel
more alive than ever before,
being substance free is an amazing feeling,
hell I don’t even drink… Life is good.

Goat Dream

Guru Goat says: “When you quit your tobacco addiction, your whole world starts looking better and better…you feel good… like waking up from a bad dream into a land of wonder. Maybe that’s because life is better with you in it, and the universe is happy to have you back.”

On the “Find Your Power” Facebook page Dan writes:

It is not easy but it is within one’s will to say no to tobacco. If one has used tobacco for a long time it is very difficult to break free from it, but one can. Sometimes one must try and try again until they find the power within their will to finally break free. I did and you can too. Never put another down but always encourage them to succeed.

Facebook friend Kay shares:

It is amazing when you do.

Test is if you smoke in your car stop smoking for a week,
don’t go near your car for that time, leave the windows up.

At the end of that week see if you can sit in your car.

It is horrible, then smell your clothes.

This is what everyone who does not smoke smells.

I was a smoker.

WOW I stunk!!!

🙂 Sorry everyone.
