    Sure, I'll just get a 12 gauge then :p

    Having a 4,5 year old son, a girlfriend which can't stop talking / screaming the whole day, and the fact that I can't get a job is damn stressful.
    And cigs are the only way for me to relax a bit from that.

    I don't care about any health issues or other stuff.. As someone said before, people die due to lung cancer even if they never smoked, so I don't take this as a threat really.. Only issue for me is the money, cause it's hard even without such a bad habit, but 3€ per day for a pack brings ~100€ per month, which is a lot of money imho..

    But as said, I managed to reduce the smoking by ~50%. I'm happy with that for now, and if the circumstances allow it, I'll try to quit it all together once I'm ready..

    I smoked for 40+ years,the way I did it was to use the patch and moved in w/someone who didn't smoke.That was 6 years ago and I can't tell you how much better I feel,if you don't smoke don't start it is one of the hardest things to quit.

    ^^ excellent advice. That is true as some people will not find it an easy thing to do. But it is possible. And you can do it.

    And I can do the 108 stairs, two at a time, up to the sixth floor where I work before I'm saying please, no more. I'm wheezy but my heart rate returns to normal very quickly so I know the 16 miles a day of cycle commuting (seriously) helps. But imagine how I would feel if I didn't smoke about 8 a day. It makes me think.

    Man, I lol'd. If we are ever sat in an Amsterdam cafe staring at the menu of different blends? Then don't ask me to sit at your table. :)

    Anubis - You are in my prayers. I await the day when you say that you used to smoke.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I just bought one tonight:

    Some reading material to go with it:

    http://howdoecigswork.org/electronic-cigarette-side-effects-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/

    After reading some other things, its actually not looking good for the "e-cig". Not only do you have to inhale it like a blunt to get any effect from it, the effect is not as intense as a cig. But, I was told that with more expensive USB models you can adjust the level of nicotine. Not sure how that works? I have not yet decided if I myself am going to continue use after some things I read, but it appears you can smoke inside now with these and it wont stink up the place. So thats a plus, you wont smell like smoke. I really hate the smell of smoke.

    The guy at the gas station I bought it from seemed to know pretty much everything about them and explained them really well. Though I cant remember everything he said off the top of my head, he did say that all you exhale is water vapor. Which I have noticed, does not appear to be true. I cant say for a fact that its not just water vapor, but it tends to linger a bit and travel through the air like normal cig smoke. Though it does not linger as long as real cig smoke, it also does have a slight smell to it. But from what I can tell it goes away shortly after the smoke does.

    The only way to do it is cold turkey man. If you give yourself any outs, you will fail.

    It's not hard man, just use a little willpower and do it.

    People in general believe it's ok to be a weak minded woosy. That's it's normal to fail and how none of are really strong enough to control ourselves. I say that's horse****.

    Im 4 days without a cig so far myself. Havent even used that fancy "vaporizer" since I bought it either. So Im nicotine free! Im also not craving it either. Having more energy makes it worth while.

    Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking.

    Read it, and you will be done with smoking forever. I didn't even want to stop, but I was curious about what the book had to say. While I read it, I started hating ever smoke I had, and when I put that final cigarette out after the book, it was my last.

    Remember, smoking is not a bad habit. Chewing your nails is a bad habit. Smoking is drug addiction, and brainwashing.

    Trust me, that book will change your life.

    Exercise and Willpower would be enough to stop me smoking,a good workout at the Gym wether weight-lifting or Heavy Bag work is enough for me to hate cigarettes with a vengeance,your lungs feel so good i cant understand why you would want to ruin that feeling with ****ty smoke.

    I can understand why people smoke weed even though i been there done that and dont agree with it,but smoking fags is just ****,they dont even give you a buzz there just bollocks tbh,dont see the point in them.
