Yes, it is a hoax.  Still, only five more years until I get my hoverboard.  And hey, only nine more years before flying cars are ubiquitous and we have to start worrying about replicants.

I am averaging 5 cigarettes a day the last three days! This is good compared to 15 to 20! I am trying to quit. Wish me luck my friends.  O0

I do wish you luck Richard Earl.  Think of the savings you will make, money and most of all your life.   Keep going and set a goal to finish for good. :)

I wish you success, Richard Earl.  Quitting is one of the best choices in life you can make.  :)

Good luck Richard ;)

I have never smoked but I know quite a few people who do or have done in the past and it's all about willpower :)

It's great that you are trying to quit but if you don't at least you are cutting down :)

Good Luck Richard.  O0

Correct me if I am wrong, but I'm guessing you have been cutting your use of cigarettes down to the "habit" or "ritual"cigaretttes as I tend to call them. Meaning that you only smoke those cigarettes that has become too much of a habit to smoke, for example; One when you get up in the morning, one after lunch/dinner, one when you get home from work, one before going to bed (or something along those lines)
That's what I have been doing when I have tried to quit, and it feels better than going "cold turkey"

Of these five I've found the morning/evening cigarette to be the easiest ones to "lay off" and the "after dinner cigarettes" to be the hardest.
Try having a bowl of carrot sticks (or some other "cigaretteshaped" vegetable) around to quell the  need for a cigarette.

Eventually try to eliminate one particular habit cigarette for a whole week. If you can cut that one out for a week, while finding some other habit to replace with the cigarette, it's a fairly good bet you can eliminate it all together.
If the need gets too great, try nipping half a piece of nicotin chewing gum on occasion instead of the particular cigarette.
Also remember to mention that you're trying to quit to your friends/family and that you appreciate their support. People tend to be very helpful and forgiving, even when you are most grumpy due to lack of nicotin.
My personal achilles heel is definetly the "beer cigarette". Whenever I get a cold pint in one hand, the other hand wants to light up  :D

That's great, Rich. I've told before I'm from a family of smokers. My father and two uncles died of emphysema. I'm so grateful my mother quitted long time ago but I remember it was hard to her.

I'm very happy you're getting get over it because smoking doesn't lead to anything good.

By the way, I watched this the other day. It's a brasilian movie called "É Proibido Fumar" (Smoking is not allowed)


It's about a woman who smokes and feel everybody is moving away from her because of her habit. Could be a good one to you watch. :)

I'm very happy for you.

I think there is so much cancer in my family, Aline, because of all the smoking that went on. I think through second hand smoke, I developed asthma as an adult. We would run away especially from my Marlboro Man Uncle who would follow us. It was awful. He wouldn't quit until his lung collapsed from the cancer. He lingered a while and then died. My mother died of cancer, too--I knew her to smoke when I was a child.

An ex used to smoke 4 packs a day. (And he drank) He's got emphysema (and liver disease) and asthma.

I don't understand why anyone would do this to themselves.

I'm going to try to see the movie you recommended. Perhaps it will answer some of my questions.

I'm sorry, LCat, that's terrible.

I don't understand either, I think there's no reason. They just start and the habit dominate them.

When I wrote my previous post I hadn't finished watching the movie yet.
Avoid it (this goes to Rich too).

Thanks Higgi! There is one recording where I sing and play and it was done on a camcorder. I emailed it to one of our awesome members here . The quality is okay but I want to get my songs recorded in a studio and get them copyrighted before ever posting them on a sight like the ones you mentioned. As soon as I have them recorded, Higgi I will let you know. Thank you.  :)
