    Quit Smoking, Started Chewing Nicotine Gum

    Strange as it is, perhaps stupid would be a better word (though I try to refrain from beating myself up); I quit smoking cold turkey for months on end last year, then practically as a new year's resolution I started using Nicotine Lozenges and eventually switched over to gum as...

    I Am An Addict That Has Made The Choice Not To Indulge

    I smoked for 25 years - just about a pack a day. I attempted on several occassions to quit smoking and failed. After losing one of the most important people in my life to lung cancer I knew it was time to quit. Watching someone you love die is a real wake up call. Twelve days ago...

    Today, just about all doctors will condemn this addiction.   I am in full agreement with the concept of never getting started along this path.  Quitting has both a mental and physical component.  The mental  component can be overcome with straight will...

    I Smoke More Than I Should

    I have my own reasons for smoking, my whole family knows I smoke, everyone at work knows I smoke. I don't even know why I continue to smoke, I guess it comforts me to know I can just light up whenever. I really want to quit for obvious reasons. I quit once before for a week, but...

    I Am Also Addicted

    I've been smokeing since I was 15 years old and tried to quit a couple of times. But guess what? It's just not easy. Plus I think I enjoy smoking, it does take the stress away and stops me from eating toooo much. Can't help it, if it  really does help me.

    I Am a ****-head For Nicotine

    and I wish I wasn't.  Nicotine is the insane monkey that lives on my back.  Which is not to say that all 'monkey' is of the insane variety.  Some back monkey is good for you, don't ya know.  *wink*

    Love At First Drag....

    Why do smokers smoke? Why is it so hard to quit? Non-smokers often wonder this and can't understand why something like smoking can be so addictive and at the same time bring pleasure to so many. For me, the first time I "lit-up" and smoked it was like the flood-gates had...

    Me Too

    There is no doubt I'm addicted to nicotine. But it needs to be from cigarettes. I've tried other forms -- gum, patches, snus, dip etc, and nothing is nearly as satisfying as inhaling smoke deep into my lungs. The absolute first thing I do in the morning is reach for my cigarettes...
