I tried that Crossfit, it is a good workout...but the idea i came away from it with was that you have to work yourself so hard that you get sick. IMO, that's really not neccesary. sure, it cuts down on the time of workouts, but seems to me, that will just bulk you up. I did P90X a couple times through, and thought it was a much more well-rounded program and got me to do Yoga once a week, which i think has helped my flexibility and breathing. I've been slacking, though...still not completely out of shape, but I could be in better shape now than I am...Smoking will def not help you, but I can't talk...i chew Copenhagen, mainly because I'm addicted to nicotine, but don't want to hurt my lungs...already did that with smoking Newports for 7 years and the ganj.
Yeah I quit cold turkey on new years eve 1997. I had tried the patch a couple of years before and it doesn't work if your not ready to quit. You have to be fed up with the whole routine to make it happen. I just made up my mind and stopped, haven't smoked one since.
there's is a whole industry built upon convincing you how hard it is to quit and how much you need their products. that's bull - once you have truly made up your mind that a smoker is no longer the guy you want to be, it is not that difficult. you don't try to stop - you just stop. no gum, no patches, none of it.
the first couple of days are rough - being involved in an exercise program is very helpful. a juice fast for the first 24 hours and sunflower seeds help to control nicotine cravings. after 4 or 5 days, it's a whole new day and you are a new person.
