Keep at it my friend and don't even think of taking a puff. That's a sure recipe to go back. Cravings mean get busy doing something else. Scrub the floor, organize a closet, wash the car. Whatever will take your mind off the craving. They pass quickly and soon you'll wonder why you ever smoked. Go for it. good good luck.

It protects itself, and it never really digests, and in the mean time, causes inflammation in your gut.
But the smoking thing is a harder habit to break than eating corn. I suggest that if you substitute on form of addiction with another, then you need to find a safer plan to quit. I quit on May 19, 2002. It is an important date to remember, I hope you can set a date in your future, which will be important for you. Lung cancer, and amputations of limbs from lack of circulation are actual side effects to smoking. Please consider.

Cigar, cigarette, chaw, snoose, mist, et al.
They are all nicotene delivery systems, designed to addict and create revenue, and very efficient and effective at those skills.

Being strong enough and stubborn enough to quit is admirable. Why let the nicotene industry win?

When I read that I realized that for me - industry seems to humanize the whole addition thing. Industry - it's people - commerce - business - the American way...

Better said for me - why let the nicotine win.
It's a thing - a drug - nothing compared to me - a living, breathing, thinking being. I can beat that nasty thing.

In my work life, I drove 50-60 k a year for many years. Chain smoked from the moment I pulled out of my driveway until I returned. 2 to 4packs a day depending on how many people screamed at and cussed me, threatened me and cussed me or the worst by far broke down into sobs. Retired in May, 2013 and quit soon after as an ex-GF was having surgery and needed to quit. Ya know, the supportive thing. Chantix felt like shrooms and I'm much too old for that. Nicotine gum got me dreaming in technicolor. Not fun dreams, either. The ex found V2 cigs, only sold on the net. I am still holding a " cig" in my hand many hours a day and I still inhale the big N. But the amount is now less than 15 cigarettes a day. They even sell, and I have bought and use 0%. Measure all that they say about e-cigs. How many nasty chemicals are in cigarettes? 300 +? Congrats to all those who quit cold. But for many of us it's not just the drug, it's the ritual/crutch of holding the damn thing in your hand.

I have been cigarette free for NN years, oh, I'm NN years old. (Thus I can't quit cause I never started).

Not, however, the reason for this post.

I'm told Yahoo is getting into the E-Ciggy market with one that plays MP3's and may possibly double as a cell phone some day.

Paging Maxwell Smart. Agent 86 where are you?
