I had to laugh when you said spunk up my smileys. In the UK spunk up is slang for ejaculation. Divided by a common language is so true. Also if at any time you read that I fancy a fag it means I want a cigarette not that I fancy a gay person.

For fun let's mix the two - the flavored e-cigs are spunky fags!

RE: Nicotine withdrawal rant
I quit two years ago last March. It's tough. VERY tough. But try to remember that it doesn't last forever. I found that if I changed my way of thinking about cravings, it would help me deal with them. Instead of ignoring them, I'd actually completely immerse myself in the craving. I'd think about how strong it is,and compare it to previous cravings. It's a great way to see that the cravings get shorter and weaker as time goes on. It quickly becomes motivating, and you get to the point where you enjoy overcoming a craving. The sense of accomplishment is enough to get you through.

Just quit one cigarette at a time. All you gotta do is not smoke the next time you crave. Just beat that one craving. The future ones will be weaker and easier to beat, so if you're beating the ones you're having now, you're well on your way!

Congrats Adey! As of your last cigarette, you are a Non-Smoker!! Stay with us. It's a better life. Hug

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Dunno. I quit smoking and dipping Copenhagen 20 years ago and my nicotine levels have never been higher. Nicorette for the win!

To the OP wishing you the very best of luck. Seriously you're very brave. Blush

I have quit and restarted a million times....each morning is like...

This will be the day....

Then some shit goes down and I reach for a smoke.

That said I appreciate Stark's idea...very much.

Maybe instead of waiting, maybe I've already smoked my last.Consider


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

"Quitting smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I've done it thousands of times." -- Mark Twain


Addiction. Yup. Been there, done that - got the t-shirt, the mug, the mousepad, the hat, ect, ect..

1. I quit smoking pot -- that was easy.
2. I quit snorting meth - that was tougher.
3. I quit gnawing on my fingernails - that wasn't hard - after did #2.
4. I quit smoking cigarettes - and yeah - it was a gold plated son of a bitch.

There's a couple of problems with quitting cigarettes --- they're fucking EVERYWHERE. It's not as bad as it used to be though. When I was in High School - they actually had a vending machine with cigarettes. (ostensibly for teachers only). You're not too likely to go to jail for having a butt - (barring TSA maniacs at airports).

I used nicotine gum to quit. I think it works a bit better - Pavlovian wise. One of the problems with smoking cigarettes is it gives you something to do with your hands - and when you quit -- short of taking up public masturbation -- or staying home and not having a social life, the psychological dependency makes it tough to "not have something to do" in dull moments......

The gum, you can use most anywhere.

As I see it -- e-cigs prolong the agony --- because you've still got the "satisfaction" of fondling something while getting your nicotine fix.

.....

But shit -- -whatever works..... I do know that I've heard more than one person complain about throat problems from excessive e-cigs - and it makes sense.... It's not a natural thing to be sticking down your lungs.........

Good luck, and the trick -- is to keep quitting.....

Eventually, it takes hold....

.......................................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
