From Friday I have gone through some major pain as I try quit my addictions by force.

No more cigarettes and fombe too.

I can assure you its worse than being sick. Not managed to do any work since then. But I hear its good for you.

Sigara is the hardest. Did cold turkey in March and true, its painful. Plus funny mood swings.

But after the first 7 days things cool down. Just look forward to Friday, the pain will be gone.

I quit both vices cold turkey, it'll be 13 years this 31 December.

It can be hard but just focus on the future and trust me you will get through it.

I got some normal chewing gum and anytime time you feel the urge to suck smoke, pop one in. Don't have to do this but you can always find something which works for you.

Go for it!

@Alma,
Quitting both at the same time is not easy but go for it. I hope by now your head has not developed cracks from withdrawal.

@Alma keep it up. I quit drinking in 2001 (15years) and still very clean. Unfortunately with no vice to commit I picked smoking. This didn't go for very long I went cold turkey April 11, 2004 (11 years), but I missed my sticks.

I experienced withdraw symptoms especially irritability. It went in two weeks and since then I have been clean.

Motivating factor to quit drinking: To own land, build and invest.
Status: Goals hit by 2005/6.

Motivating factor to quit smoking: Imagined causing cancer to my future wife and kids through second hand smoke and I just had to stop smoking.
Status: I feel 'lighter'.

What's the motivation for quitting?

What are the telltale signs that you needed to quit?

I have managed not to smoke for the last 3 years. Best decision I ever made, even fish tastes better.

For me quitting on the God delusion and the concomitant opiate has been most troubling. But seeing the madness it has caused to me I have no option but to abandon the delusions with immediate effect!

Though it leaves me on most curious grounds...

I think it's a tycho way of saying he has lost God and he is not sure of what's next! He finds himself in rather unfamiliar territory. I myself have been 'counting the cost' and it looks like the cost is too great!

One can't lose what he/she doesn't have. If there's a cost of losing a delusion then it can't outweigh the benefit. There's this quote I heard when watching one criminal minds episode; it went like, 'the good of losing a delusion is greater than that of grasping a truth'.

@Njung'e: To understand how one can quit madness one needs to understand how one gets into it in the first place. In my case I entered via what I may call a cognitive trap. By changing my cognitive configuration I reverse my madness.

Losing a delusion is just that losing and it is gone. whether you like it or not... it's gone. The conundrum is what happens next! it's like a restart or a 180 degree turn...
