  • Why do you have to quit for a surgery if you don't mind me asking? Anyhow the only way I found to actually work is cold turkey, but honestly that was both times I was pregnant and couldn't smoke, but I started again because I suck and couldn't help myself lol

  • I think she is getting her "BI-POLAR" removed because I really can't imagine a real woman wanting to have sex with her bitter horrible self. I have watched her answers and horrible self all the way from Korea and she makes me absolutely sick!

  • Only 30% percent chance you will heal and you still have to ask? Sounds like you aren't too eagar to heal.

  • Change your habits.

    If you smoke with a coffee in the morning, have an orange juice or a cup of tea instead.
    If you smoke at the bus stop, go to a different stop or use another form of transport.
    If you smoke at the computer, get it disconnected for a month and go and stock up on a whole heap of books.
    Buy something to put in your hands to fidget with.
    Buy a whole heap of sugarless lollies and pop one in your mouth when you want to smoke.
    Buy a bottle of sugarless Vitamin C and chew on them instead of smoking. They[ll put some vitamins back in your system & help with surgery recovery.
    Every day put the $$$ you would have spent on smokes in a glass jar and go shopping at the end of each fortnight & buy something.
    Buy a MP3 player and go to your local pharmacist & buy a combined relaxation/quit smoking CD and play it to yourself when you go to bed and before you get out of bed in the morning.

  • Yeah actually I am asking for tips, so I wont give in to my temptations. Grow up. And it is for a pinched nerve in my elbow dumbass. I am not bitter you are, and you are the horrible piece of shit not me. Good I hope I make you so sick you throw your guts up. Oh I have a wonderful husband and he loves to have sex with me, so STFU, and get a life.

  • Oh and by the way, you dont know me, just because you have read my answers means nothing. You know nothing about me or my life, so next time you want to judge, take a step back and look in the mirror and see how much of an ugly person you are yourself.
