I need a freakin cigarette! Who here smokes?


I'm feeling like I need to get me some of that sweet sweet nicotine in my system. I quit four years ago and never gave it a second thought. Now, all the sudden today i'm craving it like never before! Who here is a smoker?

I gave it up 8 mths ago after smoking it for 10 years....

My father developed lung cancer. He smoked until he was like 35 and now he is 65. So he quit for 30 years ago. but scientists now all say when you are 35 or something and you smoke, your chances of developing something unpleasant is the highest.

I smoke. But will not help you break your non-smoking habit. Sorry.

Smoking is expensive and unhealthy. I tried a cigarette one time many years ago, and decided there were better ways to kill myself.

Quitting smoking is easy. I've done it a thousand times.

Tried to quit, girlfriend keeps driving me back to it. Go figure, she doesn't smoke.

That is strange. I quit about 22 years ago. The first month was hard. Having a craving out of the blue years later is not something I have had. I have had dreams in which I have relapsed to smoking, however when I'd wake up there was no craving to smoke.
What to do? Obviously, try to resist it. Maybe exercise will help.
If you do cave in (which you should try to avoid), if a few puffs take the edge off, quit then. Do not surrender to the thought that you are a smoker again and must therefore smoke the rest of the cigarette or any more cigarettes.

I have been an on again, off again smoker for quite a while - albeit more off than on. The first time I attempted to quit, after having smoked for around 4 years (I'm only 23 now) was the hardest. It took me multiple attempts. I always used the excuse that I have an "addictive personality". It was quite painful to go even a few hours, let alone a few days, without a cigarette. I used to chain smoke and was envious of so-called social smokers, having thought I would never be able to label myself as one.

Now I can give up on a whim. I don't like to smoke, and would prefer not to, and can easily do without. Giving up is a piece of cake. I'm "off" at the moment - the only time I really do smoke is when I have people staying with me that do. But my partner has also now quit so I think we ought to just quit for good now.

The World Governments should take out a class action against smokers and Gigarette companies. In most civilised countries it is against the law to kill people. If we run over somebody or drop a safe on their head, or accidently shoot them with an arrow etc etc we would be charged with murder, or man-slaughter or at the least grevious bodily harm, yet smokers are blowing there poisonous gases over us and we are dying by the hundreds of thousand from all sorts of things like lung cancer etc etc and thses people are getting away with it.

Smoking should only be allowed in the smoker's house/property. That is it. I do not want to offend smokers, but the evidence of how bad secondhand smoke is overwhelming. Smoking should be banned in all public places.

I used to crave dipping in certain situations after I quit (and still do sometimes) but never had nicotine cravings per se since then.

Good ol' Kent is my choice. Smoking 2 packs a day. Nothing beats a good smoke.
