I hear you, "Q". Been telling myself it'll be easier if I go back to buying by the pack (at almost $5 per).

If I had to do a personal ad right now it would have to start off as "intelligent but still smoking..."

Sorry Mudbug, but the term "intelligent but still smoking" is an oxymoron. No intelligent person starts to smoke or continues to smoke. As I said, I kicked the habit by deciding to do it and my mindset kept me from ever craving a cigarette. After 35 years it was possible. I have never had one cigarette since the day I quit, nor do I ever want to again.

Two of my good friends discovered that cancer cures smoking. One has died, the other has a hole in her throat and will not be with us much longer. Give this some serious thought.

Sorry, but I disagree DQ, just because I smoke does not mean I am suddenly stupid or my IQ just dropped 30 points. I don't think the argument that only stupid people smoke would hold up, and is rather offensive to be honest not to mention stereotypical.
Bless you that you found it so easy to quit, I really wish it was that easy for the rest of us as well. But as my own doctor has put it, she has had more success getting people off crack than cigarettes. She also believes, thru observation and agreement with others in her profession, that todays cigarettes are as addictive if not more so than some illegal drugs today. They are purposely made that way by the cigarette companies.

DQ, that's a little harsh. OUCH!

Mudbug, mine were at $6.62 when I quit. It's sickening how they are able to do that and we are all but pawns when addiction has us in it's grip!!
