i think you need to give yourself a break from time to time and think long term. bodybuilding is something you can do for life, but exams is probably just this time in your life or maybe for the next few years depending on where you at... quitting smoking is a wise decision gotta stay with that no matter what i think.
maybe you can cut back and just maintain what you got, that doesnt require as big commitment, you dont need to be at the gym as much, hit it as hard, eat as much or clean... (there's also plenty of programs that are based around being in the gym just 2-3 times a week, less exercises and sets now might be a good idea to try one of them) and then when you get more time you can pick up the pace a little more...
thinking long term is the key here.

Dude I feel you. I was the same way especially after i took home a deserving 2nd at my first show last may. I didnt take a day off. The day after I lost I graduated from Morehouse College and trained the same day. Up until it damn near comsumed me. I had a talk with a couple of pros who told me that bodybuilding will be here and to just take a break. I thought they were crazy but after reassessing the situation (they were pros and im not) i took there advise and it was the best thing that could have happend to me. But we are all different. And you are soo cool for going to med school.

I feel you bro, it consumes me too, almost to the point to where it gets on my nerves. But like I've said a million times on this board, your addiction is a better placed one then the ones 99% of the rest have.

Congrats on kicking the cancer sticks...stay strong! If your obsession with BB is as big as you claim, I don't think you'll pick them up again...you are smart enough to know that it would be detrimental to your BB goals, and not to mention your overall health.

One thing that I have noticed over the years that most bodybuilders have in common is that they tend to be a bit obsessive compulsive.  I may be wrong on this but I believe that someone who has an addictive personality tends to be pretty "dedicataed" to working out, eating, taking supplimentss, steroids (if they have chose to go that route), ect.  I too smoked for many years yet was very strict when it came to eating right and working out. 

Its easier said than done but I would definatly suggest to focus on your education for the time being.  If you are in med school your future is likely to be much more successful than you could ever be in bodybuilding even if you were to become a top pro (obviously).  Good luck bro.

Doc, I would recomend 5 mg. lorazepam Q.I.D.  and 10mg oxycodone prn.  That should do it.  And you can send me the same as a consultant. Wink

Jay Cutler used bodybuilding and weights during school just to take his mind off of things..

Bodybuilding wasn't everything to him at that point, but that's what peaked his love..

Of course weights will always be there but have some balance in your life, the gyms there to help... you should still be able to train and focus in on school, just dont kill yourself trying to become the next Pro if your really looking to do your best with school

I agree with the above post. Focusing on school is most important. Take me, I took a year off after high school, I worked a crappy job maybe 3 days week and ate and slept bodybuilding. I took that bodybuilding mentality into school though once I finally went. My main focus now is school no matter what. Bodybuilding will always be there, I'm more concerned about having a REAL job though. I mean sure, we all probably have that dream of competing but seriously, you probably have a better chance of getting into a plane crash...twice.

School makes your life, and though bodybuilding may help it your nothing without school. These days its pretty safe to say you dont get anywhere without school. You going into the medical field is pretty cool man. After I'm done I'm actually thinking about coming back in a few years to get my masters and one day, one day (prays), if I have enough dedication and drive in years, is to go further and possibly break into the medical field myself.

Focus on school man, and good luck.
