i've started again and i am still liking it. who has gave up and stayed away?
That tastes boggin'!
I'm not proud of it, but I LIKE it with a drink.
Did 3 1/2 days a few years ago though. That was pretty good. Drank LOADS of coffee.
Really want to give up this year though, it's fucking me up.
Only been tempted once, on sunday when I was sat on a balcony in the sun, looking over Manchester and having a BBQ. Stayed strong though.
Have you read Allen Carr's book? I'd highly recommend it if you want to stop.
you all suck
She's just a big racist cow - any excuse to snap at that nice shop keep.
'Secondly, how is anyone who writes about something as depressing and tawdry as HER OWN SEX LIFE in any position to judge anyone?'
To be fair, I guess if she was able to make a living out of doing something as easy and cushy as writing about shagging, I guess she's in a pretty good position to laugh at those who have to sell cigarettes to the people writing the articles. huh?
Surprisingly enjoyable. Still glad I never took up the habit.
I don't care if people smoke but I HATE it when people light up on the bus. Could you really not wait ten minutes?
People can still smoke on buses there?!
This girl who got on in front of me went "You know there's no smoking on the bus?"
And the driver went "... I know."
Then she went "Well... d'you want to stop?"
And there was so much tension.
It was a rollie - it stank more than a normal cigarette. Good on that girl.
And no, they're not supposed to. Yet every so often there's someone who thinks that the no smoking signs apply to everyone else but them.
Me too, I haven't seen anyone smoke on a bus in years, I don't know how I'd react now if someone sparked up.
I've noticed how bad it smells since stopping, horrible things...
I don't see the big deal, its been the norm ever since the ban. Non smokers just sit downstairs.
Then yesterday I found half a pack of Camels I'd forgotten about, just after I'd finished my dissertation, so I figured what the hell and had one.
OH MY GOD IT WAS AMAZING.
"Non-smokers? I'd quit smoking if I didn't think I'd become one of you. You obnoxious, self-righteous slugs."
and threw up all over the bogs on the national express bus home. fucking horrible.
"Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I've done it thousands of times."
this includes not smoking at my house when drinking. I've lapsed once when setting off on a long drive. but it's pretty good, i'll only have up to 5 rollies on a night out, and normally less.
A- Telling me how awesome it is to smoke after being away for a while. i know that, this is why i started again.
B- I've never smoked so nyeh nyeh nyeh
C- I love smoking.
i feel slightly better about myself.
However, this is from 20 a day to about 1 a month, so i can still gloat.
....so yeah, that's a good incentive
and not having the money for the expense of it
and growing up in a place where it was only our enemies who did it
i considered taking it up just as an excuse to get a break and go outside to avoid spending time in horrible bars/clubs i've been dragged along to.
I stopped 6 weeks ago now and I do miss it lots but on the other hand I can actually breathe now.
Only 2 fagfails in that time but I think I'm doing pretty well actually.
- you're ADDICTED to it. you don't love it. you just think you do.
- you stink
- your sense of taste and smell are dulled and crap
- you stink
- you stink
- .......... you stink
Take a shower, dollface. I want you smelling fresh tonight.
You could say that about absolutely anything that anyone loves. That is proper ridiculous mind-fascism.
Sure, maybe the chemical addiction is what makes it pleasurable, but the fact it can be reduced to that doesn't make it not pleasurable, you big crazy mentalist.
Even romantic love can just be reduced to chemical reactions in the brain, that doesn't make it any less pleasurable or significant to those who experience it. Same for sex or music or anything that is enjoyable or loved.
To try and say 'you don't love it, you just think you do' is a crazy, unwarranted and totally unjustifiable imposition of your own values on others who have no interest in them.
I said Booyah! I can't help it that you're just full-on wrong wrong wrong.
Now step the fuck back, mind-fascist.
I gave up 3 or 4 years ago so no longer have a chemical addiction but can confirm that it is a lovely habit.
i actually do enjoy it. it makes me feel nice. of course that's part of the addiction... but i like it.
But I also wash.
and my flat's off limits as per the land lady.
miss smoking in pubs though.
I don't really think it's cool any more, I do it cause I enjoy it and I don't see the point in trying to quit when I don't want to yet ( neither have I met the right girl to give me a reason to). I don't miss smoking in pubs and I certainly won't smoke in my own house. Old smoke stinks ergh
i will accept no arguments to the contrary, however logical or full of sense they might be.
the one that made me start: it makes you look cool
