If you want to smoke it is peoples rights to smoke.If I don't like it that means I don't have to be around it.I never did like cigarettes.They kill you,they make you stink,and if you kiss a chick who smokes it tastes like you just lit up one yourself. I can handle cigars they smell nice and are more classy then cigarettes.Although none of it is good for you. I am just glad to see people not using chewing tobacco or skoal. That is the single nastiest habit that I know of.Living in the South it seems you cant go anywhere without seeing it.Unfortunately all the men in my family it seems uses smokeless tobacco products.I saw this one magician I was sitting next to, dip at Unconventional during a lecture.That should definitely be a rule to magicians to refrain from that nasty habit.It is not very professional.

I think the hardest part about quiting smoking is having to deal with the smug look on the faces of the anti smokers. They seem to believe when someone quits it is a victory for them when actually they are the problem and likely cause people to continue smoking. There is nothing worse than a reformed anything.

Oh my gosh...That is so incredibly right! My worst fear when I would try to quit smoking is that a reformed smoker would find out...Then regale me with stories of how they just decided to quit and they were done. No problems, just sheer willpower...24 hours later and they were a nonsmoker!
Yeah...Thats freakin inspirational. Here I am with headaches, irritable as heck and starting to twitch and they want to rub in my face how easy it is?
Not really helping there.
As it is currently, it has been 5 days since I had any sort of tobacco. I am using an e-cigarette, so I still get a dose of nicotine but without actual smoke or tar. No withdrawal of any sort, no irritability, no problems. Technically I am still a total nicotine addict, but at least there are no carcinogens.
For now, that is enough.

Been smoking pipes and cigars for 20+ years and never had the desire to have a cigarette mainly because of the difference in cigarette smoking. You don't see see cigars among those huddled around outside for their smoking break . People who smoke pipes and cigars generally do not try to get in a quickie because they are smoked slowly and relaxingly, often with a drink. The smoke is not inhaled.
Life insurance actuarial tables show that moderate pipe and cigar smokers as having longer life expectancy than some non-smokers.
Consider this:
George Burns-5 cigars a day-lived to age 100(died of old age)
Groucho Marks lived to age 97-smoked cigars(died of old age)
Marlboro Man-smoked the stuff he advertised and dies of cancer at age 59
do the math baaaabyyyyy

Gwyd, I've never smoked, but know plenty that do still smoke and several that have stopped. My oldest brother and Dad both quit smoking. My dad made it seem easy, just sucked on a lot of hard candy and put on a few pounds. It was a real fight for my brother, but he pulled it off. That's great to hear you've made it 5 days so far. Best of luck to you. I really hope your on your way to a smoke free life.
Take care, Bob.

I smoked cigars and pipes for a few years in my 30s. At that time, I also worked at Tinder Box, so was able to get the good tobaccos and pipes and become an expert on the subject. My favorite cigar was the Hoyo De Monterey panatella. My favorite pipe blend was half Celtic Vanilla and half Burley Light. My favorite pipes were an alligator-finish Savinelli, and a signed Eric Nording Freehand (both 3/4 bend).

I quit for health reasons, giving most of my pipes to a friend who also smoked. I kept two pipes (gifts) as keepsakes, one being an Ascorti First. The other was a skull-shaped briar.

I started to quit smoking and went about a week…. Then I had to go through and be part of an 84 people layoff with the company I work for.

I will try again.

10 years ago I quit a 3 pack a day love affair with smoking. I saw a show on how the tobacco industry contributed money to the film industry to have smoking in films. Subconsciously I was emulating James Bond and Dean Martin. I hate being covertly manipulated, so I quit.

I LOVE second hand smoke from a pretty girl. lol. Is it harmful? Maybe/maybe not. Smokers can live to 90 or die at 49. Same for non smokers.

I don't smoke but I do inhale.

I'm a second hand smoker, not by choice, by being a New Yorker. You can't walk down any street without some smoker blowing clouds on you...

If they do that, can you throw a cream soda in their face and call it even?

Now I want to go to Katz's deli for a pastrami on rye. Sigh.....
