    I used to smoke but I quit for over a year now. Yesterday I was hanging out at the bar and I was having a couple of beers. I wasn't even close to hammered, only had 3 or 4 beers the entire night. People around me were smoking and I broke down and smoked 3 cigs. I woke up this morning with a headache, nasty taste in my mouth and a shitty cough. It's 24 hours ago now since I smoked and I still feel it in my lungs.

    Fucking nasty bullshit. I know again now why I quit in the first place.

    Who said looking cool didn't involve some consequences?

    They don't allow smoking in public buildings in Illinois. Is nice to go out to eat or go out for drinks and not have your coat smell like cigarettes the next day.

    Eh...you're only human...sometimes we break down.....makes us stronger ex-smokers.

    I've attempted to smoke 2 or three since I stopped about 5 years ago and I always ended up hating the taste and stubbing them out.

    Congratulations! Its so much easier in the Western world to not be a smoker than to be a smoker...sure it looks really cool, but we aren't living in the days portrayed on "Mad Men". :)

    It would be so much easier. I'm down to half a pack a day. The plan is to quit soon.

    I quit almost 17 years ago. It went well except every couple of months a strong urge out of the blue would hit. Just ride it out, they are strong but last just a minute.




    Damn, growing up in the 70s and 80s everybody smoked. Now this Christmas parties at both my families and my wife's and not one smoker.

    Cigars & cigs everywhere here. Kind of interesting how the laws are posted and nobody cares. When you think about it, the cigar smoke is probably cleaner and less damaging than the bus & truck exhausts.
