I was thinking about quitting drugs this year, but that goal seems steep and not in line with what I want to achieve.

You'll quit eventually. You don't seem to have an uber-addictive personality, so I would enjoy it personally...

No pills for me though or coke/h etc, weed only and some psychedelics when my brain is healthier

I've stopped smoking since the end of last september. So it's been 3 full months clean now, and I can tell you, once the initial "yeah I can do this" emotion disappears, it gets quite hard at times.

I just try to think that I'll eventually smoke again months later so I don't go crazy. It helps.

The nicotine's outta you after the first 72 hours - so after that, it's all mental.

Kudos/Good luck to all of ya that are in the trenches...

Good luck. Think of how much money not smoking will save.

Oh and think about how shitty you won't smell all the time. Those I'd think could help the mental aspect.

Cold turkey is the only way to go if you are serious about quitting. If you aren't cranky and pissed off yet then you probably are fine

yeah i'm not cranky at all. i quit one time before cold turkey but that was only after smoking for like 6 months. this time it's been four years solid, at least.

i can feel it in my body, not really cravings but just that my homeostasis is off a bit. not a big deal atm

I work for an ad agency that does Utah's anti-tobacco campaign... so I live/eat/breath anti-tobacco stuff for like 50 hours a week. Again, damn proud of all of you quitters.

Last April, we flew a woman out from North Carolina who is a laryngectomee - meaning that her voice box has been removed. Having been delegated the honor or driving her from presentation to presentation across the state, I was prepared for a hideously awkward week with her. She ended up being one of the coolest people I've met in my entire life - a 12 time cancer survivor with a hell of a story.

We pro-shot one of her presentations, which can be seen here. Don't look at is as a "scare tactic" style thing - just watch it through the lens of a sweet 65 year old lady telling a story about how her cigarette addiction really ended up catching up to her.

If you're dying for a smoke - throw some headphones on and watch this - it's only 20 minutes, and is quite entertaining to boot:

Never understood smoking. Don't mind the occasional cig when I'm drunk, but typically if I'm smoking something it better get me high. Mellow hookah ain't bad either

i know i said it here a thousand times but i haven't had a cigarette in about 3 or 4 months since i started using e-cigs.

i probably would smoke a real cigarette every now and then if i still went out to bars and stuff (been kind of a recluse lately). i've always been more of a social smoker, and busting out my e-cig would draw too many stares
