There's this saying my friend just told me today...or yesterday.. stopping smoking is easy, i've done this thousands of times. (or something like this)

i think i've already commented on this but oh well..

i like the way the smoke looks like a strand of hair at first, as if smoking is a part of you, (and therefore makes it harder to give up), which adds emotion to the picture..lets the viewer into your mind. your eyes look so defeated and tired. good luck if you ever try again.

Very expressive! It looks like the cigarete is sucking life out of you. Even this thin smoke looks so weak and out of life, but the light in the eye tells that there is a hope yet. Hmm... maybe you should stop trying beacasue trying leads to failures. You should change your treatment from "I will try' to 'I will drop smoking in ___ weeks/months" and keep hard that plan, but I don't smoke so I don't know how hard it is, anyway, maybe you should think about it. I also heard that hipnotherapy works well for quiting smoking. I'm sure its a matter of a time only, I too asked my father to drop smoking when I was young and it took time, but his is not smoking from a long long time now, so good luck, I believe in you! :):):)

oh my god, i looked at this photo's thumbnail and immediately thought of "defeated"..and its about like trying and failing, creepy huh? less of a coincidence and more of good titling skills on your part going on i think :D
i like the way the cigarette rests on the lip piercing, normally and traditionally it would be on the opposite side so the photo is not off-balance, but this is individual in a good way. your eyes are nice too :)

I know how you feel hun. Smoking has to be one of the hardest things to quit. I've quit alot of things in my life and smoking seems to be the one thing I take back up. Ill quit for a year or two and then start up again, now that I really want to quit its the hardest thing to do now.But Ive got faith in ya, you can do it just dont make yourself sick or anything cuz Ive done that before. And remember once its gone you wont ever have to worry about it again

You've captured a look of desperation of sorts and addiction, sadness if you will. You can do it!!!!
Believe me, you don't want to go from Cancer. My best friend went that way and it was not so pretty.

yeah its harder for women to quit than for men-thats what i've heard

all i can say is that

dont give up
even if you want
just dont
its hard and its supposed to be hard

but you can do it

it doesnt matter if you fail
matters that you try
and failing doesnt mean losing
giving up means losing
every winner has failed

yeah i think about this a lot when i fail..my mothers friend gave my mom this kind of print with full of sayings ..i kinda like it:

Winners risk,just like all the others-they are scared of failing,but they dont let the fear to control them.
Winners never give up.When life gets though,then they remain confident and steady until state of affairs get better...
Winners know that they arent perfect,they respect their weaknesses,at the same time using their stronger sides.
Winners fall,but they dont fall behind.They deny bloody-mindedly to let the failures hold them back.
Winners believe in the path they have chosen-even when others dont understand where they are going.

Good for you that you're actually trying and still are even though you've failed unlike my dad who says he'll quit on my big sis's b-day then that comes it changes to my b-day that comes it changes to new years that comes and he hasn't even tried once he's been saying he will for the past 3 years probably and just changes the date every time. Great shot and good luck with the quitting of the smoking. :hug:
