I love smokers being an Ex-smoker I understand the habit. I have two (2) pounds of tobacco plus a box of rolling papers stashed away & I'm putting up one (1) pound tobacco every two months for trading.

Quit smoking 05-13-03 And I have thought smoking at least once a day since.
The guy who worked the VA program I went to said it took him Ten (10) years to stop thinking about them.

Default third times a charm

I quit twice and then got started again and decided what did it matter.

My father passed away June of 2010 for heart failure and that really kicked me where I needed it. Smoked my last on the way home from the funeral and haven't touched one since.

I don't miss it. Not at all. I can now hike way back into my "gooood" shooting spot without seeing little black spots before my eyes on the hike back out, which is all uphill.

I dont smoke but, I found this... Its a site for native American plants and they have different varietys of tobacco. Besides smoking, it can be used as a pesticide...

Im thinking of growing some as a barter item....

I definitely plan on growing my own for bartering, but I wouldn't be planting any until the S has already HTF, therefore I'm thinking that my addiction will be starved to death anyway and I'll be happy to see it go. I've been smoking for 10 years now and I hate it. I hate that I have to go outside, rain, heat, sleet, or snow-because I refuse to stink up my house. I hate that it's starting to take a toll on my breathing and overall fitness. I hate that even though I make my own, it still costs me a dollar a pack that can be better spent elsewhere. I hate that I am the only person in my family that still smokes-it gets lonely, I don't want anyone in my family to smoke, I want to be the one to join the in-crowd.

I've been smoking since I was 18, and I do not regret the decision to start. I started out smoking cigars and the way I've managed to make it an enjoyable treat instead of a miserable addiction is I only keep 5-10 cigars maximum in my humidor plus I only smoke one every 2 weeks to every month or two.
