I count myself fortunate to have never started. Being around cig smoke gives me headaches, so I try to avoid public places that still allow it. if I get a whiff, I want to smack the sh!t out of the guilty party.

Worst yet, wait until you realize what other people smell like. They say your sence of smell improves, I call BS...A LOT of people stink!

Yeah, worse is the non smokers who think they are somehow helping by constantly reminding (harassing) smokers about how bad it is, etc. I don't think they are really trying to help, just trying to feel self righteous about themselves.

All it really does is piss smokers off and I personally will smoke a couple more just to spite them!

My secret to quitting smoking. (1) Quit buying them. If you start mooching your smoking friends will avoid you and you will have no more free ones. If you do not have them you can not smoke them. (2) Stay out of bars. Nothing like 2 beers in a smoke filled gin mill to make you want a cigarette. I quit 25 years ago and if I find myself in a smokey bar room with a beer in my hand I STILL want a cigarette. Do not cast yourself into Almost Certain Temptation. Good luck bro, you can do it. I did and I am a collection of weaknesses such as is seldom encountered outside France.

Mrm14, I hope you're still hanging in there. I know how difficult quitting is. But it is well worth it for so many reasons. You'll feel better, not cough up crap during the day, smell better, have more money for guns or ammo. In fact, you should set aside the money you would have used to buy cigarettes and buy yourself a shiny, new gun in the near future.

Man what are you talking about. Quiting is easy!! I quit hundreds of times. What's hard is staying quit. I went from 3+ packs a day to finally quiting cold turkey. That was when I was involved in drugs, drinking, bikes, and rock and roll. I quit drinking, drugs, and cigarettes at the same time. The hardest of all was the cig's. I've been quit now for 24 years and I still think about them. let me tell you, it's one of the best things you will do. Think of all the ammo you can buy now!

Best of luck....nearly 30 years for me and the desire is still strong at times. Stick with it!!

And at nearly $60 a carton, you can buy a new rifle every few months!!

I'm one of those "cold turkey, and I"m fine" guys.....I knew I needed to give it up, even only after a few years, and I just did. I always knew it was bad for my health (didn't matter), I always knew it stank (didn't matter) and I knew it was a waste of money (didn't matter). In the end, just desiring to quit is what you need.

The only time I really get a craving is when I'm drinking. So my solution? Don't drink around people that smoke, and have food while you drink.

Day four and all is well except for the fact that I'm in a sh!tty mood. But, I have been through this before. Have third stage hypertension and monotor daily, and as before when I quit it's up 60 pts. This should only last for about 50 to 60 days then it will go back down.

Going to the range tomorrow to double check the zero on the target rifle for a session on Saturday. Won't be there long. Just what time it takes to get in and send 5 rounds down range. This should take my mind off things for awhile with the drive up there and all. Next week I start a pretty good size job I won and that will keep me occupied through near the whole remaining month.
