Default Quitting smoking.

Well, I'm doing it, and I have to say, I'd rather be set on fire now than continue not having a cigarette, but dammit...must resist...temptation...argh.

Something that helped my uncle quit was taking the price of a pack (he smoked a pack a day) and putting it in a jar every day. After a couple months, he looked at all the money he'd saved and took a trip to Puerto Rico with it. He still does it (with a bank account), and he uses the money he saves to take vacations instead.

That's a cool idea, but I rolled my own using Drum Halfzware Shag, which meant I'd get damn good cigarettes, and a $10 tin of tobacco would last me for 3-4 weeks going through 5-10 smokes a day...reduced the price of smoking by about 1/4th so it wasn't a major expense. Good idea though.

Basically, I guess it's just a matter of just...not smoking. I mean, that's all you can do is just not smoke even when you really want to. I think I'm taking it pretty well so far, even if I'm not quite at the 24 hour mark yet. I've controlled the compulsions enough that I'm sure I'm not going to give in.

Side thought:

I wonder which is harder to quit: smoking or masturbating?

Masturbation, because you're not forced to go out and buy anything if you get desperate.

The real question is... why would anyone want to quit masturbating?

Because it smells bad, makes you a social annoyance and causes lung disease.

Oh, wait.
