But weed is OK right?
The same group of libs doing the scorning and banning of cigarettes seem to be OK with people sparking a doobie.
The tobacco farmers apparently need to grow cannabis to gain acceptance back into polite society.

Then of course there's the final option:

Hang in there Woody, think of all the money you'll save in no time at all you can buy a new gun
I quit back in 1981 when they sold for somewhere between $.50 and .75 cents a pack! Outrageous I thought who the heck is going to pay that?!

I quit cold turkey over 6 years ago and don't miss it at all. The first year was rough because hubby still smoked but when he quit it was easy. I would definitely try to quit together. Good luck!!

The biggest trigger for me was driving to and from work. Avg hour drive. I started munching on big carrots. They take a while to chew on and the next thing I knew, I was home. Pretzel sticks worked too. Good luck.

I was smoking 2 1/2 packs a day when I quit. That was 18 years ago. I did it cold turkey. You have to have a good reason. I quit because I met the woman of my dreams. She was a non smoker. Take the money that you would have spent on smokes. Put it in a jar. Don't just say you are going to do it. Actually do it. Then reward yourself with it. Buy something you really want. For me I would be spending like $12 a day on cigarettes. With that kind of money you go buy a Barrett! Or maybe a new Camaro?

This may not be easy. It was for me. But I was head over heals for a hot blonde with big boobs. Don't give up. You will be so much better off later. I run into smokers every day. I can't believe I used to smell like that. Just don't give up. Take it one day at a time. And if you do have a set back...realize it is just that, a set back. It is not a failure. Keep going. Stay away from other smokers. Being around them will not help at all. It will get a lot easier after a week or so.

I quit smoking 2 years ago. I quit using snuff a year and a half ago. Best thing I ever done. I quit cold turkey. It was ruff. I wish you the best of luck. Only advice is tough it out. It gets better and so will your health. The cravings never completely go away. I will always be a recovering tabacco user.

Actually the cravings will go away. I have no urge to smoke at all. I hate the smell of cigarettes now. Don't worry. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Hang in there, it does get easier. I quit after 30 years of between 2 - 6 packs a day of Winston Reds, also gave up Scotch at the same time. Hardest year of my life , but today I look back a think of all the $$$'s I dumped on that BS. Good Luck
