  1. I have quit many things. Alcohol, cocaine, opiates, but not cigarettes yet. I have quit cigarettes before (I quit for 2 years when I was young), and there is no way anyone could convince me cigarettes are just a habit. Cocaine only hooked for a few hours after all money spent never thought about it till more money available. Opiates two or three weeks of physical withdraw. I was never to hooked on alcohol so I can't say. I can say I would much rather go through the opiate withdraw than cigarette with draw hands down. Opiate withdraw is horrible too. The first week you don't even want to move at all. If I go to long without a cigarette it feels like an angry monkey is chewing on my brain and the only way to get it to stop is to feed it a cigarette. Even when I was going through the opiate withdraw (the hard part) I would get up and go outside for a cigarette. Cigarettes are the only substance I have ever had that makes me truly angry when I don't have one. I would much rather feel sick than angry. When I quit cigarettes (before I started again) it took MONTHS before the craving completely diminished. I can guarantee if you got a group of smokers kept them away from cigarettes, every single one of them would start showing the exact same signs of withdrawl. I hope to quit cigarettes soon, but I am scared. I don't think I can handle that stress right now. I for one will pray for you, dove! I do know exactly how tough that addiction is, and I truly respect you for trying. I will keep posted on this thread (if I can find it again I have a TERRIBLE time navigating this forum). I am very curious as to how well the pills work and side effects. I was prescribed a slew of antidepressants after rehab and it was horrible! Good luck keep us posted!

  2. I will try to get pregnant! lol I don't know getting rid of boredom seems like a good idea. I have tried. I had a job to kill the time, but I did not exspress a positive enough attitude about wiping off stickers. I really, really want construction season to start. I don't do good sitting at home collecting unemployment! I have been looking for work to kill the time. I did very well on my interview to get in the apprenticeship school here.

  3. Anyone quit? How did you do it? I have quit alot of stuff already but that monkey is stubborn! I quit before for two years (started back when I got a horrible job). I don't think I could go through that withdrawl for two months again!

  4. Well tomorrow is the Single Adult pot luck. I was going to make barbacoa (I still might), but right now I am waiting for the butter to thaw out for chocolate chip cookies. If I get the stuff for barbocoa the cookies are staying home! I am glad I am single I don't think I would of ended up to happy with any of the girls from my past life style. I hope to change that before I get too old though!

  5. It was nice reading this thread! One of the fears I had about going to church was being a 34 year old single freak! I just got the impression 18-30 year olds were all there were! I am attending whatever is this Saturday (my first singles activity). I don't know this is all still new to me.

  6. Well I messed this up pretty good. I always get chewed out on other forums for not posting an intro first. This one is a little different. Your suppose to post before you make an intro! About me I am 34 male, single (real rough place for a mormon seems as if you are not married by thirty you hang with the widows). I had been inactive for 16 years or so. Got tired of the life I was living and decided to give church a shot again. It is very hard, I have quit many of my bad habits (working on the rest). I feel so lost at church but, my new ward has been very welcoming though. So please don't be rough on me. This is pretty new to me and I would like to change for the better. I will make mistakes, ask dumb questions, and I have no idea what most abbreviations are.

  7. Hello! I am new to and would like to post my introduction, but I am not allowed to post new threads for some reason. I am a 34 year old male in Iowa. I have been inactive, but am trying to fix that! I would say more but don't want to hog the thread!
