By Diogo Quits Smoking - The Podcast
Hi, I'm Diogo and I'm saying out loud that I STOPPED SMOKING!!!
Using the known strategy of "tell as much people as you can that you are quitting", I've extrapolated that into a weekly Sunday podcast, not only for that purpose, but to keep me occupied as well. It's tough to quit smoking and tougher if you don't get busy.
By quitting smoking cold turkey, I'm seeing myself confronted with all the deprivation symptoms associated with this process until I consider can consider myself an ex smoker.
Listen to that and to my view on the last trends of the week on this podcast.

Ep8 - Quit Smoking Stages, Getting Fat, Start Running, Tier 3
Hi, I'm Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey. Let me tell you about that and my take on the latest happenings. Every Sunday new episode. This week, the 8th without smoking, I'm going back to an already spoken theme - the Quit Smoking Stages -. I'm still on the same stage I'm guessing but some changes can be registered. Listen to it to find out which. If I put that I'm getting fat on the title, I'm not going around the subject and avoid it here at the description. I REALLY AM, OK? I'm feeling it and letting you know how I started noticing it. On that bulky note, I started running or, I ran during this week. In this episode you can listen to me going over my previous sporty experiences and what new phase is this in which I decided to really put an effort into running. Apart from that, I'm concerned about an eventual future lockdown if London is placed in Tier 3 and I'm putting it out there. I still had time to let my thoughts travel to the US and briefly talked about this media situation with all of Donald's lawsuits. Stick around every week for new updates.

Ep7 - New Vaccine, Christmas Memories, Getting Back to Work, New Year Celebration
I'm Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey. Let me tell you about that and my take on the latest happenings. Every Sunday new episode. This week, the 7th without smoking, I'm going to talk about the chances of me actually taking the COVID-19 vaccine, my usual reaction to blood and how hard it is for me when confronted with the need to make some blood exams or taking a new vaccine. I'm letting you know about a Christmas Memory that I will never forget. Not the usual what I normally eat or drink or where we usually spend it. It is actually the take of the women of my family on the world news around this time. It's not the most conventional, I know, but it is something I will certainly remember forever. Did you get back to work? - that's the question I'm asking, giving you my experience when I came back after the last lockdown. What I really felt after almost five months of absence. Will it be the same, getting back now? Something to update next week. Last but not least, I'm going to tell you about how my New Year Celebration was last year, what I think about this excuse to party and how I think all this pandemic situation will affect the flow of people this year. Stick around every week for new updates. If you have the the patience to have more content polluting your Instagram or Twitter feeds, follow the handle @diogofromthepod.

Ep6 - Release Time, Latest Vaccines, Saying Goodbye, Smokers' Habits
6 Weeks No Smoking on record on Diogo Quits Smoking Podcast. This week, I couldn't help to talk about the pandemic, more specifically, the new vaccines available. Starting by the death of Diego Maradona, I stretched the subject until a celebrity whose death had an impact on me and to the ridiculous concept of the people that say they weren't able to say goodbye to somebody that died. Some smokers' habits were discussed and again the idea of the routine. This time, on a different angle.

EpSpecial - One Month Smoke Free, Quit Tips
After one month smoke free, a special episode where I share my quit tips. I’m no doctor and this is what worked for me and what you should know from my perspective. Smoking quit tips aren’t the same for everyone of course. Learn how much money I have saved so far and what would be the count for cigarettes smoked for one month if I hadn’t quit.

Ep5 - Stop Smoking Stages, Pain in my Throat, Calling a Plumber, Seeing 666
4 Weeks No Smoking on record on Diogo Quits Smoking Podcast. This week, my own stop smoking stages is something I spoke about as I started to see some transitions in my willingness to smoke. My Throat has been concerning me, specially during these difficult times in which it seems like our access to health became limited. Get to know about my last home adventure that involved calling a plumber through my agency and how it was solved (or not). Everybody has their own phobias. I talked about one of mine and how it affected me in the right environment this week.

Ep4 - 3 Weeks No Smoking, new White House, Smoking in Movies, Christmas Season
3 Weeks No Smoking on record on Diogo Quits Smoking Podcast. I talked about the new White House and the general US elections. Finally we got results. Christmas season has arrived and we can feel it. What Christmas means to me, how I usually celebrate it and my Christmas tree. Check how my brain can trick me from seeing people smoking in movies or in series. How impressive is it that I actually made it here. This is no bragging exercise but as I told you in the beginning, whatever the outcome would be a surprise for me as well. Thinking that I'm 3 weeks no smoking really impresses me. Time flies on lockdowns.
