haha true...but in all reality, cigarettes are ALOT worse than crack. More people addicted, more people that can't quit, and more people that have died from smoking cigs than crack.

maybe chantix is for me then...i was really hoping that i wouldnt need it

Good job. Keep up the good work.

My college pshyc proffessor spent a few days talking about quitting and how to do it. I used this when I quit 12 years ago.

The main thing was to stay away from the triggers. Gotta figure out what they are for you.

Exactly..... I quit a couple years back, but i was ready. Smoked until new year's eve and a midnight i quit and that was it. it bothered me when i drank at first, but after acouple months it was like i got over the hill and all cravings were gone. Once I get to the point when I could smell the smoke on people or in their vehicle, I wandered how i ever smoked in the first place.
