I quit about 5 years ago..... cold turkey. I was smoking close to 4 packs a day.
You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

I smoke a pack of Camel Lights a day and I HATE IT! HATE IT, HATE IT, HATE IT! The few times I've tried to quit nobody wanted to be around me, I was on a hair trigger. I'm super proud of everyone who has quit, whenever I try I fail miserably. Ohio is starting a program for 8 weeks worth of free patches for anyone that wants them but I've never tried it. The people I know that have used them say they have gotten really sick and I don't really need that. Raine is right, I'll probably get scared out of smoking, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Damp other people might have gotten sick from the patch, but plenty of people do not get sick from it. Give it a try since it is free. The worst case scenario is it makes you sick for a short time. If that happens then you will know right away and can discontinue use. Think of it this way. The cigs you are smoking every day are making you sick too. It is just a slower process. I know you can do it man!

I'm 52 and I've been smoking cigars since I was 18.

I enjoy the taste, the slow pleasure of it all.
A friend just brought me back 3 boxes of Monte Christos from Spain .

To me, a good meal should always end with a smoke.

I always ask the table next to me in a restaurant if I may smoke.

I am aware of the health issues involved, but am not bothered about the impact of 2 or 3 cigars a week.
Cigarettes, that's something else...

Best regards,
Alex R.

DH tried the patch twice each time he broke out in a rash but then he is alergic to tape.

As a lot of you may remember he had 2/3 of his upper left lung removed last Sept. Thought to be cancer but the two nodules tested neg. they have no idea what it was...I think it was Agent Orange since he was with the Marines in Viet Nam when it was being sprayed.

Did he quit smoking?? NO! after a scare like that I would have if I smoked...

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
