    So easy.
    I do it all the time. :cig:
    I am a social smoker, a drinking smoker, a stressed out smoker.
    If someone asks me if I want to go outside and have a smoke with them, I rarely turn them down.
    I also rarely exceed 5/week.

    I'm all proud of myself right now because I didn't have a smoke last night even though I was drunk and upset.
    I don't have a problem not smoking sober. But soon as my tongue gets a bit numb from tequila, I crave that shit.

    Most success I had was when I quit for 3 years after brainwashing myself that i'm not a smoker.

    They stink and make me feel like shit in the morning. Stupid ass cigarettes.

    Who has ever quit?
    Who wants to quit?
    Who wants someone else to quit?
    Once a smoker always a smoker?

    Multiple choice poll because I am a fan of polls. Don't forget to vote for yourself.

    Easier for me to quit smoking than drinking/dope.

    It's the end of my second day nicotine-free.
    One more and I should have the sweats and shakes licked.

    I only smoke when I drink. However, as of today, I am trying to kick it for good. :pissed: A pack generally lasts me a week. I went to buy my case of 16 oz. Coorsâ„¢ Light tonight, and didn't get my weekly pack of smokes. There are about 5 times so far tonight that I wanted to walk down to the corner store and get a pack, but so far so good. :eek:

    I thought you were a "very special occasion smoker???" :scratch:

    Same. Over the holidays I bought 2 packs. Gave plenty away (intentionally). Have 5 left.
    Drank last night and smoked 2. :facepalm:
    I think if I run on a regular basis, it will help me to not crave them, since I really feel em when I need oxygen.
    It's either that or quit drinking...and i'm not ready for that.

    I was. And when it wasn't a special occasion, I was ingesting very unhealthy levels of nicotine through gum and lozenges.

    Got three days cold turkey under my belt. Never realized till today just how incredibly fucking annoying everything in the world is. :c

    I voted. :c

    I was a smoker. Quit in 2007. Cold turkey.

    Doesn't mean I don't still crave them, especially if I'm drinking. Sometimes it's a struggle, definitely. I've had nightmares where I thought I did smoke. Always freaks me the fuck out.

    and now you know why I smoke da cock mary jane

    I saw the poll first and was wondering who else picked the last option! :jj:

    I know those dreams...had em a bunch of times. They almost help you stay quit by scaring you into determination.
