Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

Smoking: Heeding the message of the Great American Smokeout - latimes.com

I quit 13 years ago, one of the best decisions I've made.

Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

I gave them up on Feb. 8, 2010 the day after the SB. I have not touch a cig. sense that day. People say you will feel so much better but I have not noticed that other then not coughing as much. I have gained some weight and do eat more. I finally got my buddy to quit and he has gone 7 weeks and we talk each day to encourage each other to not smoke. At this point I don't need encouragement but I don't let him know that. I always thought this smoke out thing was pretty stupid and still do.

First you stopped killing your lungs and gave them a chance to heal. Perhaps you aren't seeing immediate positives, but its great for the long run.

Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

I have not been a regular smoker since January of last year. I make very long spells with no cigs at all, but unfortunatley, time to time i do have 1 or 2, only when i am drinking or around my dad. I wish i could find a long term way to never have another 1.

Never needed cigs in my life! My family has enough health issues without inviting smoking into the picture.

BJs are basic wifely duties and they are non-negotiable. You better man-up before she forces you to start wearing the skirt in the house.

Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

I don't smoke but I sure have a habit of dating smokers.

Cloves... GAG. I tend to like black and milds though. I'm cool with those.

Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

Good job matty, first and solid.

i have been smoking since i was about 12, i quit for about 2 years back in 2002 ish i didnt have one smoke or drag cold turkey, then i moved back to Maryland from stress free california, got a stressful clerkship job, was living with my parents, would often find myself going to chiles were a few HS friends worked bar, ended up bumming a drag here and there which turned into people just giving me a cig to me just buying a pack.

i tried to quit again a few years ago, went thru major chemical withdrawls this time, something i didnt feel so strongly the first time. i only lasted 1 excruciating week til i had to go back to smokes so i could cont my job.

i am convinced that Phillip MOrris increased the level of nicotine (or whatever drug causes addiction) in response to the increasing trend of people being able to quit smoking. i think they tried to make it harder. if this theory of mine is true, i wil be the first to sign up for the class action lawsuit.

i really really want to quit but given how debilitating it was last time, i cant afford to miss time from work or not be on point at work.

sometime after i get moved and settled into my new home and before my first child is born i will renew my commitment to quit. this time with some kind of prescription or drug to help fight the chemical urges/withdrawl.

well, yet another long, winding post from me. im working on it.
