    No, never have and thanks god for that! I'm more a person who try to stop person who smokes way too much

    ValleyGirl, a little advice... do this at you're rythm (sorry for the bad spelling), just reduce day after day, it can do something one day! and for the weight, I can't answer about that, I think it's more psychological but still, I dosen't want to give you bad advices if you try this already!

    Re: Do You Smoke Cigarettes ?

    EX-smoker here. Wish I had NEVER picked it up as a kid. When I was in Jr. High... I went through an "Ugly Duckling" phase, so I thought I would try to be cool to hang out with the smokers. They took me right in & I was one of "them". Looking back on my life, it was the 2nd stupidest thing I ever did in my whole life.

    I didn't quit until I got "attitude" about it. I enjoyed it for some sadistic reason. I still have attitude, and I'm totally not interested in ever starting back again. Don't want em... don't need em. WOOHOO!! Yay for Me!!

    Re: Do You Smoke Cigarettes ?

    This smoking this is such a SOCIAL issue.

    I smoked as a teenager for 8 years. (I'm from NC, so you can guess that it was the culture)

    But I have discovered there is NO REDEEMING VALUE to smoking. EVERYTHING about it is NOT GOOD. I could list everything but we all know the list.....

    My mom died last year primarily due to Emphazema (sp) and the last 5 years of her life was she was on a portable respirator. Yes you all have seen those people on occassion with the rolling tank... and yes some of them are asthma patients, but I would venture to say the vast majority has to use them due to smoking cigarettes....

    As Miagi told Daniel-son..... We all have to get back to the basics of life. Daniel-son said, "Prayer?" Miagi says, "NO, BREATHING" I LOVE a FULL LUNG of CLEAN AIR to BREATH...

    and a special note to a VERY SPECIAL FRIEND... ONE DAY BG.. ONE DAY, WHY NOT TODAY??? I love ya

    One final note.. for those smokers that want to quit.. keep this in mind... IT is VERY EASY to PROMISE YOURSELF ANYTHING "IN THE FUTURE"... as long as it is OUT there in the FUTURE.. its ok... but let me encourage ya... DO IT TODAY... I PROMISE . YOU WILL NEVER EVER REGRET IT!!!

    I BELIEVE EACH ONE OF YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

    I'm fortunate in that I tried them in high school but didn't like them. But I do realize how hard it must be for smokers to quit.

    Re: Do You Smoke Cigarettes ?

    Re-reading this thread made me think back to a little militant non-smoker outburst my Mom went through 15 years ago.

    My Mom is one of the sweetest people I know. But she is a chain smoker. I smoke and I could NEVER catch up to her and I wouldn't want to. But if someone asks her not to smoke around her she is more than happy to oblige.

    Anyway, My Mom and a few of her girlfriends were out at some fancy restauraunt (which had a rather large smoking section) to enjoy dinner and a few drinks. This Militant non-smoker comes up to my poor little mom (She's 4'10) and tosses a large steaming hotplate of food in her face! My Mom still has scars! The guy was arrested. I guess he was walking by the smoking section to use the mens room and he didn't like cigerette smoke. It wasn't just my Mom that was smoking EVERYONE was since it was the smoking section. My question is is that he should have asked her to put the butt out even though she was in the smoking section. What would you guy's have done? Sorry it's a bit long.

    OMG, how horrible!!! That's just...horrible!!

    As long as there's a smoking section, I don't think anyone has the right to ask smokers to stop smoking.

    Never have smoked. Never felt the need to pay for somebody to give me diseases and make me smell bad.

    It's funny reading my original response to this post over 2 years ago. Oh how things have changed since then. I am a smoker now. No desire to quit yet - then again I am only 18, so I have some time.

    I said I was going to quit when I was 18, 11 years later and It's a struggle. I know you don't want to hear this. But if you can quit do it. When you hit my (young ) age it'll be 10 times harder.

    Re: Do You Smoke Cigarettes ?

    I never smoked, but my father smoked and I have a lot of respirtory issues I had to deal with because of the second hand smoke. I dislike being around someone who does smoke, because I can't stand sigarette smoke. When I tell people to not smoke around me, they're usually nice and move away from me.

    Virginia Slims 120 menthols is my poison. I've been smoking since I was 16.

    I respect others around me though and won't light up if I can. I usually go outside to smoke.

    BUT I am pissed off about them making bars a NO smoking area.

    The government allows this them to sell this crap and yet bans us from using it. Thats f*cked up in my opinion.

    Re: Do You Smoke Cigarettes ?

    I've been pretty much smoking like a chimney lately. Up until about a month ago, I used to ONLY smoke when I was out at a bar drinking & I would bum cigs off my friends. But....my life has been pretty stressful, I know that is NO excuse, but it helps take the edge off & I know it won't last long. I don't have an addictive personality, I'll stop when I feel like it.

    Re: Do You Smoke Cigarettes ?

    I smoked for 22 years. Started the nasty little habit back when it was 'cool' and I was trying to impress an idiot, uh excuse me, I mean a boy. Can you believe that? I was so stupid as to believe that me smoking with him would make him like me! I woke up the morning of my 35th birthday and never picked another one up. I do not consider myself as 'quitted smoking'. You know how when an alcoholic no longer drinks, he is still an alcoholic? Well, for me, those smokes call my name. I am 'on the wagon'. I pray I stay there forever! My husband smokes and I deal with the smell and desire daily, which just makes my will power stronger, so, I think I will stay off the sticks forever more. Anyhow, as of this very minute here are my stats: 90 weeks, 1 day, 10 hours, 11 minutes, 49 seconds since quitting. 12,628 cigarettes not smoked. Around $1,262.80 saved.
