QUIT now or REGRET later


mye domain's photo_quit now or regret later

Despite several campaigns
innumerable advocacy regarding 
smoke-free environment
Needless to say..
the danger it brings to 
human lives and nature
Getting addicted to nicotine...
puffing here and everywhere
still exist.

WHY??
A matter of choice
whether you want to
light up that
STICK
to inhale the very 
CAUSE 
of countless illness 
or 
take the first step in 
QUITTING.

MIND over MATTER

Forget about it
being the source of your strength
in coping stress and daily annoyance.
If you love yourself and family,
you can win the
BATTLE.
If you still consider it your 
COMPANY
to loosen up and be free...
it's yours to ponder.

I am speaking for myself...

Now, it's DONE and over with
Easier said but I know
others may take a while
to even contemplate on the idea
of giving up.

This is a
DECISION
to make...

it's
YOURS
to make.

    1. The decision lies on the user. Moral support of the family can be of great help.

    1. It's good to hear that there are men like you who never tried to smoke at all.

    2. I was lucky enough to be strong willed when I was in high school and college so I didn't yield to temptations before.

  3. it's not easy but let love be the motivating factor...those who only think of himself will not bother to look at the bad smoking can bring...bible warns of defiling the body too :/ but kudos to those who have conquered the habit! :)

    1. NICOTINE is far more addictive than any substance that's why more smokers prefer to face the consequences of smoking and forget about the risks.

    2. sadly...I think though those e-cigarettes are effective or? it will take a lot of discipline to forget a habit, even the body will suffer because of the change...

  4. My father and brother had that battle too and they won. If they can, then I don't see any reason why others can't quit.

    1. If others can... why can't they? But, still others have a difficult time accepting this reality.

  5. It's never easy to quit something that you are addicted to, whether it be smoking, drinking or even the games we often play in Facebook. But it's a matter of determination and the person's willingness to quit such a habit. Of course, the people surrounding you will also help.

    If the government really want to help this no smoking campaign, I really think that they should apply high tax rates for addictive products (cigarettes and alcoholic drinks). If it's not easily accessible, especially to teenagers, then they will think twice to buy it.

    1. I agree with you. Cigarettes are easy to buy. They're everywhere. Nabibili kasi ng patingi-tingi kaya kahit mga bata, pwedeng bumili. There's no law that can bring a vendor to jail once he sells yosi to minors.

  6. I know how hard it is to quit smoking especially if somebody's been doing it for a long time. But if one is really determined, then I guess it is possible.

    1. How I wish users have the courage to stop... and if ever they do, I'm sure tobacco industry will finally meet its downfall.

  7. I am not a smoker (never have and never will), but I do know some people who are chain smokers. I feel bad for these people because they know it's bad, but they can't shake off the habit. :( I know it's easier said than done. However, knowing how harmful it is should be enough reason for one to try and quit the habit.

  10. I am a frequent drinker but i will never ever try to smoke- walang mapapala! Cigar shortens man's life...

  11. My beau used to smoke during occasions until it became frequent. But since I have asthma, I asked him to stop. I also asked him to stop so that our future family will have a healthy and well-abled father. He stopped since then. :)

  12. I am glad that DAVAO CITY campaign for SMOKE FREE DAVAO is SUCCESSFUL. Up to now our leaders strictly imposing this RULE.

  13. This is one of the things that I never bothered to spend money. I grew by the thought that smoking is burning money and I don't want that.

  14. Easier said than done. But with intimate determination and self-discipline getting rid of cigarette smoking is attainable.

  15. I still lack the determination to quit, I did stop before for 5 years then suddenly returned back to this habit...

  16. I really need some WILL power at this moment. Where there is a WILL , there is a way!

  17. Never considered smoking. Why waste money on something that will make me sick and make me smell bad? Even the "social status" it used to provide to smokers have been replaced by a more predominant public disapproval.

  18. I use to smoke more than a pack per day during college and when I realized that I am getting addicted to it and with the prayers of Christian friends, I was able to quit. Haven't touch cigarette for 2 decades now =)

  19. I used to social smoke when drinking but lately good thing I do not drink as much and social smoke, yay... and I hope I can always keep it at bay...

  20. I quit about 9 months ago. It was painful, and I felt terrible for weeks - now I feel better than ever. Thanks for encouraging people to quit this nasty habit with your blog post!

  22. sad...how i wish it is that easy to convince them each stick shorten their lives... but nothing scare them until it's too late..

  23. I used to smoke when I was in college but I was able to stop it without difficulty. that's why I cannot comprehend why others are having difficulty. I'm not trying to judge anybody, but in my opinion, if you really want something to happen, you can make it happen

  24. I got a hard time to quit smoking during my call center years. But I was able to overcome it, when I got sick big time and that was major turning point. But now I'm better off without smoking. It's just a matter of brain over matter.

  25. My father was a chain smoker. according to him, he smokes 2-3 packs a day when he was young. i can still remember i used to see him smoke a stick or two when i was young. but i started to complain on the smoke at home so he decided to quit. thank God!

  26. I've tried every way I know to get my dad stop smoking. But believe me, nothing worked. I guess its a matter of choice. And since I cannot get him quit it, I just make sure his lungs are still okay by a monthly checkup. Haha!

  27. hooray to a good health. i shall continue to ask in prayers for my husband to quit. it has been a battle for himself and for us :)

  28. I've been urging my friends to stop smoking and I'm happy some of them took their own initiative to do so. It isn't easy, but step-by-step they will eventually quit it. As long as they are surround by people who support & remind them, coupled with their own will, I think nothing is impossible :)

  29. hope my husband will stop smoking also he tried hard before but maybe we can try again this year! xx

  30. So far, I don't smoke as frequent as I used to. I just do it only on heavy drinking sessions (that keeps me sober from alcohol).

    ReplyDelete
  31. YES! Act now before it is too late. I am anti-smoking talaga!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I really thank you for this post, we must protect our body, life is short after all, live it up!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Amen. I also strongly believe in the God factor in helping people quit. I've seen it in a lot of my friends. They gave their lives to Christ and the addiction amazingly went away.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am so fortunate that no one in our family smokes. Even my boyfriend and my circle of friends don't.. :) Anyway, I wish those who smoke will realize that it's not too late yet to stop. They need not waste their lungs and their lives just to get a little pleasure from smoking.

  35. I have heard from friends that smoking is really hard to quit but if you truly focus, discipline and mind over other things, smoking can be eventually avoided.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It all starts with the first move if you really want to quit smoking. There ust be a drive or motivation especially for chain smokers. At first, it will be really hard (talking from experience) but once you get used to not doing it, then you won't have to seek for it. :)

    Divert your attention to other activities instead of smoking on your leisure time. :)
