    Default Would Someone Please Yell At Me?

    I had a tongue biopsy today. I would be (and was) in excruciating pain if I did not dose myself with Vicodan. It is difficult for me to have a beverage and all I'm allowed to eat is pudding or baby food.

    Yet here I am sitting here smoking.

    Now, I could tell my mother and she would not only come over, she would come over and scream at me. But I'm not going to do that.

    Would you please yell at me?

    You're a big boy and obviously know the consequences as you sit there in pain. It's something you will have to come to terms with mentally more than physically. People can lose the physical urge to smoke in about three days with lots of water but the habit is what is such a bitch to overcome. I have seen people having a lot of success with the latest drug on the market but you will have to forgive me because I do not recall the name. My mother who is a smoker of approximately 55 yrs quit with it .

    You have to get your mind in the right place and no amount of yelling by someone else is going to get you there. It might help to think about your family, especially kids if you have them, the expense, the smell along with the health issues.

    I can't point fingers though. I smoke but it's minimal, about 1 pack a week but it's the habit. When I want one, I really, really want one. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

    It would be too easy to "yell" at you but, in honesty, that would be hypocrytical of me. I've managed to steer clear of alcohol and drugs for many years but tobacco has been a bitch and a 1/2. So far, I've gone 3 weeks without a cig and I can offer you encouragement that its doable but I'd be lying if I said it was easy. With the drugs/alcohol, it was a choice between my freedom and health vs. maintaining what was clearly a road to destruction. With tobacco, its a bit more subtle, though, in truth, that is an illusion as your evident cancer scare would indicate. All I can say is don't give up, find someone to help you (even your mom), and take it a moment at a time. Its a choice that has to be made truthfully and thats what I struggle with because I can justify in my head that one cigarette won't hurt a thing, even though I'll have to buy a fucking pack to have that one cigarette, then I can justify smoking the whole pack, etc, etc, all the while forgetting the fact that I'm not in the best shape and smoking compounds health issues I already have.

    Hang in there and don't give up.

    Well I'll be joining you in the pain tomorrow. I'm going to get I think 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled and I'll be in excruciating pain or acting like a hippie with me being drugged up and listening to Slayer's Raining Blood (is that a paradox?)

    We have finally found out who Eddie is on this board!

    In all seriousness...I am sorry about the pain you are going through. You'll quit smoking when your ready.

    I work in the field of mental health and addictions, and one of the most important things I've learned is that getting support from other people is crucial.

    Call a friend and ask them to help you. (and no, not someone who is going to yell at you, or judge you.) Work out something like you're only gonna smoke so many cigarettes in a day. Or in an hour, if it's that bad. It helps a great deal to hold yourself accountable to someone who cares about you, and who you trust. And if you slip....well, ok. But overall you're going to do better.

    it also helps to have someone to just talk too, wouldn't you agree?

    Thank you one and all for your encouraging words and novel humor. The interesting thing is smoking doesn't hurt right now. Practically every thing else does. Hopefully this dose of Vicodan will kick in soon. Apparently Eddie either has an extremely high pain tolerance or much better drugs.

    By the way, BMB5150, having four wisdom teeth extracted at the same time has nothing on this. Believe me, I've had both. I was back to work two days later with the wisdom teeth.

    I'm not moving except to take painkillers for this.

    While I agree in the long run with what you are saying, at the moment talking is not an option. Thanks, though.
