I stopped smoking cigarettes just about three years ago now, and I don't miss it a bit. :)

:beerchug: The usual response I get from people who smoke when I don't, is that I should never start. They just can't quit. Good job doing it.

Thank you, Acid Worm. :) I'm pretty proud of it. If you really want to, you will do it.
And I believe you have to just up and quit. Period. None of this cutting down how much you smoke, nicotine patches or gum...just do it!

Damn right! It's been 7 years for me. The only way to stop is to go cold turkey, just stop. Cutting down doesn't work and patches are just so someone makes money out of you giving up.

I helped my cousin write a paper on Electronic Cigarettes. Apparently a lot of people who smoke move to them cause it is like Cigarettes without the harmful stuff in it. It just gives off Water Vapor.

Well, perhaps, but for the psychological effect, a friend of mine after a month of attempted giving up just held an unlit cigarette in his mouth throughout a night at the pub and apparently it was kinda seductive.

Post Re: Smoking

I'm on step 2 of the patch, have been quitting since January 5th. 3 more weeks and I should be off the patch too and done with all this. I tried quitting cold turkey and it lasted about 5 days before I started feeling like I was living in an alternate reality, sweating, shaking, teeth grinding, insomnia, extreme irritability and just not taking it that well; and I'd only been smoking 1/2-1 pack a day for 1.5 years. They say women respond better to the patch and so far so good. I don't recommend the gum though; as it takes 30 mins to completely work and makes your mouth numb and your throat feel just plain weird. If you can do cold turkey, do it, and a huge kudos to you. I definately don't regret needing the patch though lol :)

Post Re: Smoking

I used to be a social smoker 15-17, then I got addicted. Been a smoker for many years after that. 2 years ago I managed to replace smoking with vaping. I will want to quit at some point.
I have tried weed first time when I was 20. Smoked occasionally until 25 when I got seriously mentally ill from it. So I quit that too. I'm ok now.

Post Re: Smoking

Quit smoking (and drinking) in early 2010. This is easily the longest period I've been off smoking (usually it takes about a year or so until I relapse). Haven't had that much difficulty this time around either. Alcohol was much, much harder... (smooth sailing with that now too, thankfully).

Haven't touched weed since 2002 and I strongly doubt I ever will again. I still have an eye-twitch from that when I smoked it back in the early 90s.

Post Re: Smoking

I'm very tempted to smoke the cigar. I quit smoking - occasionally - cigarillos like 4 years ago. And the cataclysmic raise of alcohol taxes in Belgium brought me back to wines. In other words, I'm sober.

But curiously, I've been having that taste of cigar lingering in the mouth for a coupe of weeks. I don't know why; I'm not pregnant or anything. I'll go visit a retailer this week... and will be deterred by the prices, I hope!

Post Re: Smoking

Trying to talk someone out of smoking is pointless. Feels like talking to someone who has been brainwashed. Who argues like that: If 1 out of 100 non-smokers gets lung cancer too it can't be the cigarettes. :S

Both of my parents smoked their entire lifes. My mother had a stroke a long time ago with all the fun disabilites that come with it when you are finally found after hours of clinging to your life. This made everything so much worse for us. Smoking is highly inconsiderate to people that care about you and the passive smoking issue is the least of it!
Still, despite having found her that way my father continues to smoke. One of the few times I've ever heard him cry was when he told me on the phone how he had found her. It's something that will haunt me forever.

Health issues aside, I wouldn't smoke for the single reason that it pisses me off that cigarettes are so heavily taxed. The goverment naturally wants you to die before you get to have any kind of pension (which is also taxed...) and, at the same time, patronize you with pictures and warnings while happily taking your money.

Yeah, never underestimate the power of addiction - it can be very subversive and often has many underlying issues.

Financial reasons was actually my main motivation for quitting smoking.
