    Quitting Smoking

    I hope this is the right place for this thread. So I started riding MTB about 3 months ago mainly to lose some weight and now its much more then that. Ive been smoking cigarettes for about 9 years now (I'm 23 turning 24 on 9/5) and after 3 months of riding Ive lost 15lbs and gained alot of leg endurance/strength. But now I feel my lungs holding me back from longer or more intense rides. My current best is a 10.5 mile track in 56 mins. I would like to be able to drop this time down by a few minutes as this track is almost completly flat. And please remember I'm still about 40lbs over weight. But my question is what have other smokers done to quit the cigarettes? Over the last 6 weeks I've really worked to limit my smoking to no more then one per hour and none for atleast an hour before and after a ride. I would like to be pretty much done withs smoking by the end of Sept. Patches / gums are a no go for me, to expensive. Im trying to save money to put more into my bike.

    Regards, Mike.

    Pretty simple. If you want it, just quit.

    Prepare to feel bad for a couple of days but provided you have been and will keep exercising that time may be reduced. Two to three weeks and you'll be able to notice differences, for the best!

    It's all in your head. Mind beats body.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Ive tried the mind over matter thing and while it helped (couple days no smoking max). My accesablilty to buying them is ridiculous. Im a delivery guy so Im in or near places that sell cigarettes several times a day. And I think the stress involved with my job dosent help much. I quit once for a month by switching to chewing tabacco. Helped the lungs but that didnt last.

    Regards, Mike.

    I tried that mind over body deal on the 12 of december of 2010. I was having my morning smoke when I decided it was going to be my last. I have not smoked a single cigarrette since and will not for the rest of my life. No patches, no laser, no therapy no nothing but plain and simple will. I took up mountain biking 3 months after that day. I smoked for 12 years of my life (15-27).

    Good luck!

    If you don't mind, it don't matter. It is that simple. Free yourself from the addiction. Turn you're back on the slavery to nicotine. I quit cold turkey after more than 30 years of that crap. If I can do it you can. Don't make excuses, there are none. Just quit, today.

    Well the quitting cold turkey thing may be the way to go. I guess my will power has just been lacking. I guess I need to go buy a package of pencils. (oral fixation solver) Wish me luck for the next 96 hours.

    Oh BTW I just piched my last pack of smokes out the window (into an approved waste recepticle) and it felt different then the times Ive tried before. Felt like this time it's for good.

    Thanks, Mike.

    P.S. more stories/ self modivation advice are appreciated.

    Good for you. Just think about the money you'll save, how much easier you will breath and how much longer you are likely to live.

    Your on the right track!

    I don't know what happened to me about a year ago,I just realized one day that I really didn't need to smoke(after about 15 years of 1 pack a day) It was right about the time I became a self employed painter.I knew I didn't want to running outside every 15 minutes and smelling like smoke in a customers house.Being that I was the only one to do all the monotonous work I forced myself to get into the zone and focus only on what I was doing at that moment,just like you do when your focusing on your ride.After a while of turning off everything but what I was doing I learned that I could actually control my craving.

    There are so many ways to quit and you just need to find the one that works for you.Don't beat yourself up if you give in and don't kid yourself either.Never give up and keep on it till it becomes reality.I hope others will share how they did it and you find something that works.

    Good luck!

    Make a preemptive strike and spend all your money on bike parts so you won't have any money left for cigarettes

    Don't know what kind of delivery guy you are, but I can relate to dealing with city traffic. I drive a 18-wheeler. It is indeed stressful. I couldn't possibly do what UPS and FedEx guys do, driving all day long around big cities.

    I smoked daily between 2004 and 2008-ish. I remember I heard on radio that tax revenue from tobacco sales being wasted on politicians/bureaucrats' pet projects in Ohio or some other state. I happened to be in that particular state at the moment, contemplating purchasing a carton. Never bought that carton, and I basically quit afterwards on the basis that I don't want to voluntarily pay extra taxes.

    A cup of strong coffee and regular gum worked wonders for me when I had craving. YMMV.

    Good luck to you.

    Just take into account that it is quite normal to have some kind of relapse either cause of a stressful moment or that old "one puff won't harm".

    No harm done. Just try to identify you've relapsed and retake the no-smoking policy asap.

    You didn't need patches, gums and other nicotinized paraphernalia to start smoking so you sure don't need to stop.

    And do not bargain with yourself for a smoke.

    On a recent 48 hour road trip I knew I was going to slip...and I did.After about half way through the pack I was getting ill so I pulled into a truck stop and went in search of something else.I came out with a bag of Jacklinks and made it the rest of the way (maybe a little slip here and there).Beef jerky was so great because it satisfied the oral thing and gave me something to do.It also helped me stay awake and keep hunger at bay.

    Yeah Im a UPS/FedEx type delivery driver, although I'm not in a big city I still pass a store that sells smokes about every hour. My biggest issuse will probably be dealing with those times inbetween stops (some times as long as 20 mins) But I think Ill be ok at home as long as my bike is working.

    Everyone has addictions. Substitute the one you have for cigarettes with something better. I could recommend reading a book in those in between stops. Start by something you enjoy and in no time you'll see how much you'll be reading in those little intervals...

    I think habit substitution is a great idea but I dont think cracking open a book while drivig is a great idea. For the last few hours (yes Ive been driving this whole time) Ive been doing some core excersizes. Helps kill time and fat. Win Win.

    New question here.

    Just a little rant here. Anyone ever watch that show called "Intervention" why didn't they ever do an episode about a cigarette smoker? Ive heard it's eaiser to quit using crack then stop smoking cigarettes.

    Just a thought, Mike.

    I quit using Chantix. Had smoked for 6 years (1 to 2 packs a day). Tried cold turkey and was not able to do it. The Chantix worked but was not fun at all. The stuff messes with your head and stomach (vivid dreams and sour stomach). Been smoke free for 3 years and I work in casinos so the temptation is there all day every day.

    I smoked for probably 15 years. Hated it. Then I discovered I was going to be a dad and wanted to be a healthy role model mountain biking and training and it became my addiction.

    The absolute opposite of a vicious cycle. The more I rode, the better shape I got in which meant I could ride longer and get in better shape.

    6 years smoke free, regularly riding 75k xc rides and enjoying life. This year did a couple xc marathons. For me patches helped. However I strongly recommend googling Allen Carr and getting a copy of his book. It will change a lot of the thought processes and challenge you to see you things differently. You arent't going to 'quit' anything - rather you are going to gain a whole bunch of things
    Good luck! It will be so worth it!

    I have tried the electronic cigarette in the past with no sucess. It just wasn't "the real thing" enough for my brain at the time. So far so good, getting ready for bed now we'll see how tomorrow goes.

    I will look into that book.

    My mom used Chantix to quit. It worked, kinda.

    Regards, Mike.

    Smoked for 11 years, went cold turkey one day and used that day to get back into cycling. I had the shakes and cold sweats for two weeks (started on the fourth day of quitting )and I vowed to myself that I'd never smoke again and put myself through the withdrawal symptoms again. That was 8? years ago.

    Took two years of consistent riding to get to the point where I felt that my lungs were getting close to top efficiency. Doing the one cigarette thing a day won't do it - just quit and be done. I didn't use any patches, gums, etc as I didn't want to trade one addiction for another.

    I avoided all social settings and just went hermit style, me and my bike and that was it!

    Hey Mike -- you da man! Congratulations!

    I've heard that quitting cigarettes is the toughest thing to do. But hang in there -- you will and are doing it.

    The rewards -- health, long life, financial, professional, and social will make it all worth it. You are in our prayers.

    Just more motivation to get on the bike and eat right.

    Good job Mike but if you want to quit you gotta walk away completely... no cigarettes at all. No puffs, nothing. If you even take one drag you can fall back into it so fast its not funny. Good luck.

    Nor Cal Mike, stop whatever you are doing right now and go and get or order online a little book called Alan Carr's "The Easy Way To Stop Smoking". I would be a happy man indeed if the only advise of mine on this forum that you heeded was this. Take it from an addict, you can thank me later. Dude I **** you not, go now! Quitting smoking is indeed easy!!!

    Mike, read the book. Seriously.

    I smoked for 12 years. Quit for 3 days. Then I caved. I was going to buy a pack, but I read this book instead. Never went back.

    I want to make it clear the book does NOT gloom and doom you with health facts we already know. The book aims to separate the addiction (hardly any) from the habit (most of it), leaving you with a clear understanding of your situation and a feeling of “I GOT THIS”.

    I have been smoke free for 8 months and proudly counting. I went from being a slob to riding ~100 mountain miles per week, and counting. I introduced this book to 5 of my friends. All 5 of them are now non-smokers. All 5 of them are now also avid mountain bikers.

    Quitting smoking does so much more than you will find from the "quit smoking timeline" (you know you searched that). You will have a new outlook. You will respect your body so much more. Your health will be a priority.... not like it is when your a smoker, but really a priority. You will feel a
    sense of accomplishment that no other feat can produce. And it sticks with you, for a long time.

    Want to know the best feeling in the world? Telling someone you quit smoking, and knowing you mean it!

    You're gonna have to offset that craving, and better to do that with things organic. Everyone should drink water, so if the days become edge-y and begin to give odd things to crave - especially sugary things for a ' rush' get some Seltzer Water. It's flavorless yet it quenches.
    If you manage to keep moving forward, you've got it! If not, hit the harder stuff -- Club Soda -- and lastly go for the Tonic Water. Tonic Water is a bitter, bitter pill. This natural-remedy has been repeated many times by others, it just works. I'd smoked at one point, and quit it w/ this same adjustment. Have never looked back, and in fact am keeping a great natural diet and health.
    I’m all-in for others to succeed ridding vices and obstacles in their lives.

    This.

    Be sure to separate the addiction from the habit of smoking before bed, in the car, hanging around waiting, etc. If you've got a smartphone let that replace the boredom from waiting around, read the news. When you're done with US news, read international news.

    Each time I've tried to quit I've had to slowly separate and distance cigarettes from a part of my life ie my car, my workplace, my house, the sunlight, etc. The addiction will hit you for the first few days but the habit will affect you for a long time.

    Quitting when I get the bike I ordered the other day. Getting on Amazon now and buying Allen Carr's book. A big portion of the cigarettes I smoke can be attributed to idle-hands and pure boredom. If I have to take a short ride at 3am to get my mind off a smoke, so be it.

    Good move, Allen asks that you do not quit until you have completely read the book. I was ready to stop half way through reading it but made the commitment to follow his intructions. By the time I finsihed the book I was truly ready to quit, I threw away my remaining cigs and have not looked back. Your life is about to change, awesome for you to take the first steps.

    I figure that my smoker lungs will only hold me back from getting the full enjoyment of the bike and the adventures it will come with. Plus, it will mean more money for bike and car parts

    I started smoking during my first deployment back in 2005. I smoked a pack a day ever since. One day in mid 2010 I was in my truck at a stop light. In the car next to me was one of the most beautifl women I'd ever seen. She lifted a cigarette to her lips and I gaged. It completely repulsed me for some reason. I thought to my self "If it looks that ugly on her, imagine how I look". I didnt smoke again. Then came 4th of July this year. A couple too many drinks and the fireworks show did a number on me. I wont go into details on what all happened but I ended up in the VA hospital and was diagnosed with PTSD. I cursed them up and down and called them liars and to stay out of my s**t. Walked across the street to a gas station and bought some smokes. Been smoking a half a pack a day since then.


    I'm buying that book right now!

    I credit that book with saving my life. The men in my family died from smoking related illness. I read the book and have never fed the monster again. It really was easy.

    I hope everyone who posted on this that wants to quit can. I have a few thoughts and tips that may help.

    First some background. I just turned 46. Smoked 1 to 2 packs a day from 16 to 25. Then off and on for the next 20 years. My problem is I like to smoke. I can quit for extended periods of time, but sipping Jamesons in a bar has me searching for someone to mooch a ciggy off of because the two just go hand and hand so well. Last year a good friend of mine died from esophageal cancer. He smoked roughly 3 cigars a week. I decided I was never going to intentionally inhale smoke of any kind ever again. So far it's been a year and a half and things are going good. First I started running. I lost 30 lbs and got to 5k in 30 min, but my knees can't take it any more so last week I bought myself a birthday present, a Diamondback Overdrive Pro. I was hard core into mtn bikes 20 years ago so it was really, prodigal son sort of deal. I've manage to spend at least an hour on the bike everyday since I got it.

    Some stuff that helped me...

    You lose the physical cravings around 2 weeks from there it is psychological, which is infinitely harder.

    Since I like to smoke I really had to focus on the psychological aspects of quitting. I started chewing gum to get past the oral fixation. I open the pack of gum the same way I open a pack of cigs. I tap the pack on my wrist and tear open the cellophane the same way. I even tap the individual pieces of gum like I would a cig before lighting it.

    I drink water like a mad man. It helps leech out the toxins and helps the oral fixation.

    I picked things out really wanted that I wouldn't normally spend the money on and every time I wanted to buy a pack of cigs I would drop $5 in a can. That way I felt rewarded for putting up with the mental anguish.

    Because of what I do I had access cigs all the time as well. I made sure to tell everyone I knew, even peripheral acquaintances, I wanted to quit smoking. A strange byproduct of that was I really could tell those that cared by their empathy to my plight and ended up getting a few really good friends out of the deal.

    I tried very hard to not put myself into situations where I would want to smoke. I also limited my contact with those people that smoked.

    The last thing I want to say is, I know you can quit. The human constitution is an amazing thing. Much like riding on my mtn bike, my brain is the limiting factor. My bike can do amazing things. I am then reason why I don't. It is likely you will falter. If you do, pick yourself back up, dust yourself off and re commit to the process all over again. Never lose sight of the end goal of quitting smoking which will give you more stamina riding your mtn bike, make things taste and smell better, make your clothes smell better, and lower your odds of dying an early death significantly.

    Keep it up. We are all gunning for you.

    Thanks for your $.02 Dickie. I definitely get the smoking and drinking thing. Even though my beer tastes significantly better without the cigarette flavor, having a drink in one hand and a smoke in the other just feels right. Indianapolis did just ban smoking in all public places so that's a bit of a booster but every one of my friends smoke which will make it difficult, especially over the winter when riding won't be a daily thing.

    For me, I smoke out of boredom and frustration. Keeping my hands and mind busy keeps me from smoking. I've noticed that after a day of not smoking the psychological dependency kicks. I think I'll need to find something for my left hand to do when my transmission isn't keeping the right busy; chain smoking while driving is something I've always done, any suggestions for that?

    I do actually. I am in the car 30 hours a week. I would try books on tape. I found myself getting so into the story I would forget about wanting a cig.

    Not a bad idea, if the local library has books on CD I'll give it a try. I was thinking more along the lines of a stress ball or grip strength trainer, but free is always better!

    Mike,
    Hope your hangin' in there. Lots of really good advice here. Avoid your triggers, make the neccessary lifestyle changes. Don't worry about tomorrow... just don't smoke today. Drugs, Alcohol or Nicotine... one day at a time. It really does work.
