@a911
I quit in 2000, after 20 years of smoking. I swore to god that I would never do it again (except marihuana, if I needed it for medical purpose - but itīs not necessary now). I cannot break my promise.
After my promise, I did NOT throw away my cigarettes - I left them at home. Thereīs no use, throwing them away. Smokers who canīt live with the feeling of not smoking, will always go and buy new ones (even late at night). So one should be able to do it with cigarettes close at hand, knowing they are just one step away with a lighter and an ashtray ready beside them.
I could only do it when I had nothing else to do (no duties). I just placed bottles of mineral water in front of me on the living room table, sat down on my chair, switched on tv and tried to become quiet, peaceful and tired. Whenever I wanted to smoke, I drank water and afterwards took a really deep breath. After one week I could leave the house again - but it took years not to think of cigarettes any more (even nowadays, I still sometimes do). Breathing deeply always helps.
If possible, donīt let people smoke at your home, if you want to quit. (I donīt let them any more, although they smoke. They go outside the house.)
Smoking "friends" always like the thought of making you a smoker again. Itīs satisfying for them and a kind of triumph, because itīs not only them who are too weak to stop, but others (you), too, when they succed to get you to smoke again.
How often did I hear "I canīt bear seing, how you are suffering - take one of my cigarettes", when I had just proudly explained to have stopped smoking for more than a week or so?
Your friends will envy you, if you can stop smoking, while they canīt and will discuss with you for a long time, why they themselves donīt quit, although they easily could, as they say.
"Iīm too busy to quit now - Iīll need more rest for this." versus "Not now, I wonīt ruin my only holiday" versus "We all have to die sooner or later" and many, many more .........

____________________________________

I wouldnīt have gone to bed that early last night - couldnīt sleep for hours then and had to watch tv to get tired enough again for some more sleep

I would tell my grandparents (who had a bakery store in a northern city of Germany) not to keep their saved money on their bank, but to buy the vast area of plain land they were offered before the second world war.

Their (old Reichsmark) money wasnīt worth a dime after the war, but the land that they could have bought had already become a complete urban district of the city (with lots of houses, shops, etc.), at the time I was born.
Owning this land our families would have become very rich. (But perhaps my mother would have chosen another husband then and I wouldnīt exist?)

My grandparents had bought some land before the war, though - my mother inherited it (my uncle, being a baker, inherited the bakery).

Later my brother, sister and me got one third of my motherīs land each - but itīs farmland since I was born and probably wonīt become a building area as long as I live. We didnīt divide the land, because we can only lease it to a farmer, anyway. The lease we get paid, is just sufficient to take care of our parents grave.

Yes, I wouldnīt have bought so many (4) ci-modules, as well, because softcams can do a much better job in satreceiver.
(Now I only still really need one Alphacrypt for my cable tv setīs ci-module slot - still got cable tv for some reasons - too long to explain.)

So, if I could turn back time, I would google earlier ...

I would buy a house (I undoubtedly could have afforded it) instead of paying the rent for other peopleīs houses.
