If it were that easy to quit, there probably wouldn't even be any smokers around anymore.

Yep, that about sums it up!

I think you're mistaken. For all these years, I always thought the sun set in the west.

Hey Cuda,

Glad to hear your quitting !! Try Nicoderm, or the patch, or get hypnotized, try Zyban, anything to quit ! I'll be rooting for ya. Hell, being an old Mopar enthusiast I'd root for anybody named Cuda !!

Do you remember that cool old song? It went----
Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette.
Puff, puff, puff on that weed?

I wish I had the lyrics, it was such a hoot. Anyone?

The Missus and I both quit a year ago last February. She patched, I went cold turkey. Talk about a bad 8 weeks. I had 2 weeks of physical addiction, then 2 weeks of thinking I wanted a smoke. After that it was just remembering that I don't smoke anymore. 10 years of bad habit gone - no slips.

The Missus went ballistic a few times, but she got through it as well. She was a heavier smoker, so I suppose it was tougher for her.

Good luck if you chose to quit. It helps to have a good reason. I tried a few times just to see if I could, never made it more than a few months. This time, the Missus told her Mom that I wouldn't support her desire to stop - I showed them both by quitting the next day. Then it was put up or shut up. Sounds bad, but it worked.

i quit a year ago. SMoked 1-2 packs a day. WHen i finally quit i cut back to parliment menthols. Anything was better than the newports i was smoking. Actually i dunno before newports it was camels (non filtered, my dad smoked em so we woudl buya few cartons and geta discount) and before those it was reds. I needed to quit.

As for the russian marlboros, They suck. The actual russian brands are better. Don't ask (i've traveled a hell of alot). But lemme tell you Gallouas (spelled wrong) they are french in blue packs. Those cigs will tear your balls off!!!!
Pardon me, while I whip this out!

Hey Jennifer,
I've got your solution, CANDY STICKS ! They can't call them cigarettes any more because they cause kids to smoke. They're a lot cheaper than the real thing. They won't do much for your waistline or teeth but may quench the urge. I feel people should be able to smoke if they want, but if it's just because they are addicted to them then it's all right to try and help them quit. If you want to quit just post it here and I'm sure you will find lots of support. You seem like a very strong person and if you wanted to quit I am sure you could. Nothing worth while comes easy!


BTW, I also have "Chocolate Cigarettes".
