    Aren't there enough things in this world that can give you cancer, why willingly and needlessly add something like smoking to the list?

    Just seems so obvious to me.

    My father-in-law, one of the only people on this Earth that I would want in a foxhole with me died from smoking related cancer. My dad, another guy I would want has bladder cancer, due to smoking (according to his doc).

    Cancer sucks. Smoking can cause cancer, ergo smoking sucks.

    Good luck quitting. I hope you do so as quickly as possible.

    Smoking, drinking and eating red meat will kill you...

    If you're going to die, as we all are, f**king enjoy your way out...

    Do what you want, but believe this... dying from lung cancer or COPD is NOT ENJOYING your way out.
    I have smoked cigars for over 20 years. I know its really bad for me but i still havent stopped, to be honest i dont care. Thats pretty bad i know.

    It hasnt affected my health badly yet. Im still a better faster worker than people 20+ years younger than me, despite having lots of aches and pains.

    I know smoking is going to kill me ..

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    I started smoking at 16, gave it up last year. At first, I did e-ciggarettes, but those things suck and make you look like a douche, so i finally just sacked up, and gave it all up entirely.

    Now I can actually enjoy my pot, instead of feeling the urge to smoke a cig afterwards

    Sir, if you are really looking forward to stop smoking, and have tried and failed multiple times in the past, it's because your nicotinic receptors are kind of hooked on to nicotine. This creates craving and is also responsible for the pleasurable effect of nicotine when you smoke again after a gap.
    There are some compounds which act by interfering with this process. One of the most successful ones is Varenicline.
    You can contact your doctor regarding the prescriptions. He can also clear any queries you might have regarding the same.

    Regards.

    I was on an alcohol and codeine binge which effectively numbed every sensation, including cravings, and the cravings I did have I replaced with alcohol. That was for a ten day period, and I had no experience with codeine before that or after. This replacement addiction was controlled and way easier to come down from, and also easier to replace with gradually less addictive stuff like eating and eventually exercise. That's when I was 22 or so, I don't exactly remember. I picked up smoking again shortly some time later, despite no cravings, went back to full chain smoking for a couple of months, and quit again, cold turkey. It's like I enjoyed quitting again because it gave similar sensations to when I was on codeine. I liked quitting so much I though I was addicted to it. The second time quitting I remember way better, how good it felt, being able to breathe, smell and taste again, the clarity of mind, nerves and concentration. To not smell like a sour exhaust and to actually do stuff to fix my life rather than smoke myself deeper into illness, and to be able to spend money on stuff I actually enjoy. I've quit for about three or four years since then. I've smoked a cigar once or twice, no cravings. I know I enjoy smoking, it's just that it I hate the consequences and it's not worth it. 
    Worst decision of my life: start smoking.
    Best decision of my life: quitting

    Really, the people who end up hospitalized even say it, they had wished they just took a month or two to fight the cravings and live 40 years longer addiction free. Instead they loose their life over some idiotic burning stick as if it was a nipple, which even babies are better at quitting than smokers. Smokers are weaker than babies.
    Quitting isn't easy but it's much easier than you think. The cravings are 90% psychological and quitting is 100% a matter of will. As if some dumb dried plant laced with chemicals and rat poison has control over a human being. I am so over the psychological dependance I can pick up smoking addiction and quitting as many times as I want to proove to anyone how weak they are they can't even go at least one day without a smoke. It's beyond ridiculous and people are willing to loose their life over it. Oh well, the strong live and the weak die, it's nothing new.
