this is not a thread to tell smokers what terrible people they are. we do not tolerate self righteous bullshit in this thread, so if you even think that, you can go to hell and die.
This is the last pack before I quit (again)....of course, I've been saying that for the last three packs or so.
Wish me luck.
I 'only' smoke about 2.5 packs a week, so I can only imagine the difficulty experienced by people with a strong physical addiction to go with the mental addiction (i.e. physical symptoms to go along with that persistent, vague feeling of frustration and stress).
i really should quit, just because i'm broke as shit and it's a habit i can't afford. i had 20 dollars to my name yesterday and i bought a pack of cigarettes with it. plus i don't like that it turned into a 'whenever i feel like it' kinda thing to a daily one.
I stopped again last saturday. Brought a 10 pack on Wednesday, Stopped thursday. Brought a 10 today .. It's been a really bad week stress wise.
I will suggest though if you can get your hands on this:
Nicorette spray .. instant hit but too strong for me (i only have 2/3 sprays a day and i'm fine but then i only smoke 5-6 cigs a day.
Good luck people.
P.S. I will stop again after i've finished the remaining 9 cigarettes.

I did the patch awhile ago. It actually worked great but I got so tired of people asking me "How's it going?" "how you feeling?" that I ripped it off and lit up. Next time I will just do it without telling anyone. Even Though I have heard that your should tell people as an incentive (to be accountable or something).
I bought one of these thingies a couple of weeks ago at the suggestion of a customer and haven't smoked a cigarette since... I still get nicotine and FEEL like I'm smoking, but I'm not breathing in the other components of smoke
