this won't sound cool, and i know what the people are expecting from a man with my name, but i've also "given up" last autumn.
not really given up, i never really quit. i just wanted to smoke less, because i kept getting these ridiculous colds. and now it's become this once or twice a month thing. (a bit like fuzzy "quitting" coke.)
i never really feel like smoking, except when i've had a decent amount of alcohol. then i sometimes have one or two. or not.

it doesn't really relax you though, does it? do you feel relaxed 3 minutes after your cigarette?

for me it was more of a mental thing. it just became a habit to smoke after a bowl, after eating, after/with coffee. didn't really do shit for me. unless i'd wait for a day or two. then i could feel it.

if you really want to get relaxed by tobacco you should smoke hookah.

One of my first psychologists told me that my coping strategies for anxiety - drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes, were both stimulants that were in fact just increasing my anxiety.

The thought of that just made me more anxious. And I was addicted to both, so I couldn't stop turning to them when I felt anxious. But then I would wind myself up with more anxiety because of how I was actually making myself more anxious.

only for a couple of months, though.

just think about the amount of money you've wasted by smoking all those years.

the only way to live life is with no regrets

like my idol Jim Hatfield says in his song "No Remorse":

No remorse
No regret
Another Sorrow
Another death

i mostly quit after my friend's wedding last year. i don't drink often, but when i do smoking just nauseates me and i've finally accepted that. now if i drink and get the idea to have a cigarette, i don't find it as appealing as i once did just don't bother with it.
