The cancer stick that is.

I made it about 6 weeks before I caved.

Oh well. Back to pissing off the non-smokers...

After six weeks I find it hard to believe that you caved to cravings.
Did you make a conscious decision to start smoking again?

No, it was more a vicious craving. Not the kind of craving where you want a cig, But the kind of craving where you wake up from a dead sleep in a cold sweat and cannot live without a cigarette that lasted for better than an hour before I caved.

Talkin to the my doc about zyban on Tuesday.

I quit because I was pissed off about the smoking policy they were working on at work. When I ran outta spite, I ran out of the desire to quit.

I know I have to quit. But I LOVE TO SMOKE.

The physical addiction to nicotine is broken after 72 hours. That's how long it takes the nicotine to completely work it's way out of your system.

I had quit for over a year until this past May.

Yeah--I went the patch route. 6 weeks is the drop to the 7mg patches. But the good news is that instead of 2 and a half packs of Camel filters a day, I'm down to about a half pack of ultra-lights.

G_T,

I quit for ten weeks ten years ago. After a month I told my bride I wanted to resume smoking. She said "Hang in there. Give it a little longer". After ten weeks I said I was going to start again. She said OK with no hesitation. I was a bitch with balls. Even my daughters were more comfortable with me smoking than putting up with my bad nicotine-free attitude.

Hopefully someday we both can kick the habit but I'm not counting on it.

Others: please don't flame (no pun intended) me or try to analyze why I love smoking.

Yeah, that's me. I tend to border on asshole anyway, and the lack of nicotine was tipping the scales towards outright surly...I was gonna tough it out until the waking up sweating thing.

Maybe you should just use Copenhagen snuff instead. You can chew where you can't smoke & spitting in their trash cans & on the ground will be way worse for them than breathing a little second hand smoke.

Nah, chew is fuggin nasty! Ten minutes in the open air, and you can't tell someone was smoking, but a puddle of peach scented spit is fucking NASTY! Besides, I'd rather lose a lung than my lower jaw..

If it were just an addiction I think I would have successfully quit long ago. For me its more the habit than the addiction part. Waiting for meal at a restaraunt, cigarette, finish a meal, cigarette, drink a beer, cigarette, get in the car cigarette... etc etc etc I have tried to quit before and never noticed any of the typical physical symtpoms of withdrawal, shaking, iritibality, etc but just can't stop wanting one at certain times where I normally would have one.

Don't sweat it. Your master is nicotene, bow to him.

Some people just can't die quick enough. They run headlong towards a beaconing death.
