I don't have proof, but it wouldn't surprise me that some people either don't have the right receptors for nicotine to really get addicted. I know someone else who claimed the same thing.



Very interesting. I smoked for 3 years or so. One day I said f this and just stopped. Haven't had one nor craved one again. Hat was 8 years ago. However the struggle has been real trying to stop pop.

Keep pop out of the house, that's what I have resorted to. Once or a few times a year I will break down and buy some Cherikee Red pop but limit myself to a can a day. Even then I break and sometimes have two. Which is why I keep it out of the house.

Been looking for a pop substitute. Thinking of rigging up CO2 to carbonate homemade things as a replacement. Until then I sip hot tea or iced coffee while I work. It helps.

I've taken up various forms of nicotine for various lengths of time. Vape, dip, cigs, cigars. I generally have little to no trouble quitting. Usually what happens is that I get tired of it and stop.

It seems to be that I can enjoy stimulants with very little addiction. Depressants are another matter. I never tried H because I'm pretty sure I'd be hooked quite easily.




I would have to ask why keep messing with cigs and vape? Do they really give enjoyment?

I get an occasional cigar. Used to, can't take them anymore. Dip is just disgusting.

I have been smoking all day a lot, double or triple than normal. I almost want to try a patch later today, I'll probably forget before I even smoke. I'm shooting for a quit date of April 26th, I'm tired of wasting good money on cigarettes and not really feeling good in any way mentally or physically because of it. After a while not because I smoke per se, but just because I tend to have a habit of smoking and drinking coffee instead of eating right, then after a lot of exertion, I wind up just mentally a little slower than I really should be, because I'm running on empty and a lot of vitamins have probably been used up in my system. I like smoking, how stupid is that? I'm telling you how they help make me forgetful and slow, how it empties my wallet, and how it controls my life, and I'm telling you I like smoking. I probably would have never gone to casinos if they weren't the only places you could smoke all you want and not many people even care. SIGH! GRR! LOL! :(

Question for the smokers -- Why don't all of you switch to vaping? I know it doesn't cure the addiction, but isn't it the much lesser evil compared to toxic tobacco fumes in your lungs?

Regarding quitting, almost everyone I know who was successful did it cold turkey. You simply have to want it hard enough.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

If the cigarette talks back, check yourself into the nearest Mental Health Hospital, ;) but seriously, just ignore cigarettes. Cigarettes give Emphysema, Bronchitis, make your breath stink, your teeth and nails yellow, your clothes and hair stink, make food not taste as good,give you lung cancer, heart attack (A man named Roosevelt got a heart attack at only 44/45 after smoking and now has a scar after open heart surgery), make you talk robotically through a hole in your throat, kill you.

I'm DISGUSTED that two voters voted to keep smoking! Maybe DISGUSTED isn't as strong as I'm feeling. I'm feeling downright PISSED! <-:(
