Hello. My name is Gbeth, I am 22 years old and live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I joined this site because I have an interest of sorts with Martial Arts, like many others. I have goals, which seem unattainable right now but I'll be damned if I'm not going to at least try and reach them. People I admire include Alexander Karelin, Brock Lesnar, and Zydrunas Savickas. I'm a pretty heavy guy, I won't lie about it. Well, to list them all, my goals include Stop Smoking: I've smoked for three years now, and I hate my addiction because I know it's going to kill me one day if I keep doing it, and it costs a butt load o' money. I've seriously tried to stop smoking twice; one interval was three days and two nights without a cigarette. The other was ten days. They say it takes 21 days or so to break a habit. I think it might take longer than just breaking the habit because its not just a habit, but an addiction. This one is crucial because it pertains to my own physical health, which is definitely needed for my other goals. Start Weight Lifting and make it a habit: I used to do weight lifting a lot, but stopped for a short time. During that short time I started smoking and everything, so it kind of all went down into the sewer. I know this might sound weird, but I miss actually craving the strain and exertion of lifting weight. It gave me an outlet for my constant anger and made me feel better about myself. I have a weight bench at my house and dumbbells, just the only problem is making the lifting an actual habit that I can stick to. I am currently at 90 lbs. Bench pressing and 30 lbs. dumbbell curling. I honestly would like to stick to those two goals, start out small. If anyone has any advice they can give me about stopping the smoking or making the weights a habit, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you all in advance, I hope I am able to stick to this site. If you guys want to know about goals including Martial Arts, here it is (just because this is a Martial Arts forum after all) Start Wrestling. I don't know which style I was doing, but it was the one where two competitors faced each other on the mat, both on their knees, hands in a clinch, and the objective was to dominate your opponent onto their back. I used to do it with my friend. But before I even attempt Wrestling I would really like to stop smoking and get into weight lifting first.
