    The trick with kicking an addiction is to replace it with something else.

    That's how I kicked cigarettes. Now if only I could find something to break my big black cock addiction.


    Just kidding, I still smoke a pack a day. Hmm maybe that has something to do with my difficulty in seeing gains at the gym. Nah, probably not.

    The self-righteousness that comes with being a former smoker is more addictive than the nicotine ever was.

    I started smoking (cigarettes) at 15 years old. Gave it up at 23.

    Never got back since (8 years ago). It's not hard to give it up if you really want to.

    Well, you were still young and only smoked for about 8 years. I would imagine that it's a lot harder after 20-30 years of smoking.

    However, while I'm sure there is a lot of variation involved, I would imagine that a lot of people in their 20s think they can't quit because they've always heard that quitting was so hard. I quit after about 14 years of smoking (on and off) and it was surprisingly easy.

    My grandfather's doctor told him to start smoking to lose weight. Don't know that he ever quit. Think he was addicted to painkillers, too.

    I finally found a place that stocks Perique blend American Spirits. They're really nice. Smooth, full bodied, smell good, and burn so slow. Oh and I get a huge buzz from them.

    Truth. the roll-your-own perique blend is heaven in paper.

    do you find them different from the pre-rolled? I randomly stop by in every shop I pass looking for them and finally found one but they were out of roll your own so I got a pack and they're amazing. I need to look harder.

    I don't think so. I just find roll-your-owns to bring out the essence of the tobacco much more, whatever the blend. I've tried the pre-rolled periques, and I just find the filter/machine rolled nature of it not as satisfactory as self-rolled ones. I live in New Mexico, so every tobacco shop on any res anywhere has American Spirit ryo.

    I'm getting some Shepheard's Hotel, and in midwest Ohio, even! What a treat. The store is actually ordering them in for me. EDIT: I don't know if it concerns anyone, but these are actually banned, some kind of legal thing they didn't wanna go by. If they wanted them imported, the company would have had to lay down like 5-10 million dollars for some kind of insurance thing, so if anyone sued them or anything. Sounds... kind of unrelated, but the guy is really knowledgeable. Anyways, I just picked up sans-filte Merci instead.

    Try as I may, I can't get addicted to nicotine. I can't understand how people do. When I smoke -- which is rarely -- I chain-smoke like crazy, but have no desire for a cigarette after I'm done. For example, when I was in Las Vegas for three days I went through a pack a day and didn't touch a cigarette for months after, nor did I have the desire to. I only smoke socially because I think it looks cool but I never "crave" cigarettes. Frankly, I think the people who get addicted to cigarettes convince themselves they need them.

    And on the topic of which cigarettes I like: Since I don't have a habit, I usually shell out for Dunhill Blacks when I do smoke.

    Actually getting addicted to nicotine is a lot harder than most people think. Takes a fairly long time of steady smoking.

    God, does that rush feel great when you light up your first one in the morning with a cup of coffee...

    Kind of gives credence to my belief then that the people who get addicted to smoking are the ones who want to get addicted.

    Ehhhh.... Drugs do different things to different people as body chemistry varies so much. Notions of equality do not allow people to be painted with such a broad brush. We are different. I would expect that it is a minority percentage of people who have no propensity to an addiction to nicotine. ~ H

    Interesting that some people feel smoking looks cool. I always felt the opposite (even as a kid). To me smoking is a sign of weakness and people who smoke are weak. Could never understand why people would want to weaken themselves and waste $$$ on something that is not beneficial to them.

    ...or the ones who genuinely enjoy the act.

    All things in moderation.
