    has anyone else quit

    today is just one of those days. its cold and raining outside and I'm on second cup of Joe and the fires got the house warm.
    I quit smoking some time ago. but today I'm just jonesing for some baccer. I know if I go to store and even get a bag of beechnut or a block of chaw it will lead to a pack or bag of tobacco--nope just don't want to go back there.

    I've quit 3 times in the course my life, and am currently quit right now. I really enjoyed smoking (I liked the little cigars), and yeah it's real easy to get re-hooked. I don't think those occasional joneses will ever go away, at least for me they don't. The good thing is that those jonesing thoughts pass pretty quickly.

    Easiest way to quit is to never start...
    Better that way.

    I quit July 4th of this year, it’s a tough battle for me, daily! I have been using the nicotine pouches, the brand I buy is called Zyn. They have helped me immensely.

    Yah as I am typing I’m quitting, again, for about the 10,000 time! I’ve quit for more than a year! Something pops up, some party I was at, when I was younger, next thing you know, I have one, and it started all over again!

    It's been 13 years since I stopped smoking and once in awhile I still crave a cigarette!

    Me and my wife quit smoking about 30 years ago, we no longer want to smoke but are now dealing with the damage to our lungs.

    If someone is smoking in my house there hair better be on fire.

    It's been 14 years for me. Straight Pall Malls. If you can resist, it does get better.

    I found it easier to put off having that next cigarette, then when you get there put it off again. It's easier than quitting. You're just not going to smoke right now.

    Yep... never goes away... though looking at the taxes put on em' I'm not sure i could afford it anymore, it would definitely get into my reloading budget.

    I still smoke a pipe. I don't inhale, so I suppose it will kill me some other way.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    I quit years ago, about a year after I got out of the army. I was smoking a lot of Camels and then I started jogging and quickly came to the conclusion that smoking and jogging didn't mix. I just decided to stop cold.
    I wish you luck and the best kicking the smoking.

    Quit smoking 37 years ago and will still get the occasional urge. For some reason a nice smelling pipe tobacco gets to me. I know it would probably taste like crap, but they do smell good. Hang in there and just quit. Going part way does not work. Good luck.

    Get some Nicorette gum. If you have ever had a loved one die from emphysema/COPD or Lung Cancer. A horrible death. Tobacco has probably killed more people than anything in modern history ..

    I quit smoking in 2007. It wasn’t hard because I took up chewing tobacco again. I quit chewing tobacco in 2012. That was tough because I had been chewing since 1970. It sounds stupid, but the way I got over it was to teach myself that the craving was the “new nicotine”. If I go to Mexico on vacation, I will enjoy a few Cuban cigars while there- and leave them behind when I return. I’ll crave some Copenhagen or Levi Garret about once every couple of years, but I know that I’d get dizzy and turn pale green if I give in- just like when I was a kid and tried Dad’s Red Man the first time. I don’t miss Marlboros or Drum at all.
