How are you seeing the relapse, GH? Any notches of experience that can help for next time? A guru once said, 'Lessons are blessings one should learn through.'

I've made zero progress since last report, getting by on ~5 daily. But shout out to all thinking, attempting, and maintaining life without cigs.

The majority of my cigarette intake comes on drinking days.

So far this month, I've drank once. On that day alone I had 9 cigarettes.

The rest of the month -- the other 12 days, I had 9 cigarettes...total. Over the course of 12 days. So in one drinking day I can match my entire cigarette intake of a dozen sober days.

Well im still working on that 4th pack of American spirit menthols. I'm thinking about giving it another go when it's empty. I've really got to stop drinking if this is ever going to happen.

The two certainly go well together, unfortunately. When they banned smoking inside bars here, it helped people quit. Pros and cons, civil liberties or health.

That's good you have the willpower otherwise, do you want to completely quit?

I would sure like to, but I like to drink.

I have cut down my drinking significantly but I don't think I could give it up completely -- ideally I'd still like to drink once or twice a month. And it's hard to see myself not smoking when I partake :facepalm:

That's not bad, IMO. Personally, I feel an occasional smoke won't do much harm- The amount of crap we breathe in, accounted for.

That would be a slippery slope for me though, I admire your willpower! :fistbump:

"I have tried (to quit smoking) So far, unsuccessfully! Lou Reed claimed nicotine was harder to quit than heroin. It is.
Quitting heroin is like hell, but it’s a short hell. I mean, the actual process. Cigarettes are just always there, and you’ve always done it. I just pick ‘em up and light ‘em up without thinking about it."




Stay strong guys, get back on the wagon if you fell off, it ain't easy.




My favorite Keith quote was "I never thought I had a problem with heroin, I had a problem with cops".

I was hopeless with cigs till 1995. Two and a half packs a day. I finally found it relatively easy to quit with nicotine gum, but I wasn't in an environment to stay off them permanently. I was one of two closing managers at a huge restaurant/bar that closed very late and the owner let us drink after work. Then I got four consecutive cases of bronchitis then pneumonia, and knife stabbing pain in your lungs is quite a convincer.

Nicotine gum was on prescription then, so I had to ween myself off it. If it was available in stores like now, I would have just traded one addiction for another. I loved the stuff. The waitresses used to walk past me chomping their teeth imitating me chewing like a madman.

i congratulate anybody that has stopped, and even a big up to people that have tried multiple times. I have pretty much tried every drug you can, and smoking is they only thing i ever had a problem with. I been smoking 32 years and only stopped for maybe 6 years in that span.

I hate it and now I do juul which is even worse imho. that jull is like crack man make you bug out and up. Hopefully soon I can quit I am tired of it and knows it's no good.

Heard that- I quickly gave mine away after developing 'popcorn lung.' Now that you mention, nicotine has its hooks deepest out of everything for me, as well.
That's addiction, not being able to stop despite hating it and yourself for continuing.

Niff I dropped the ball big time.. would of been a perfect opportunity but as my breathing improved, I returned to business as usual. And some: I have a tendency to take things overboard when first indulging after abstaining from something I like(or am addicted to). It's like a voice says, 'I missed you sooo much and now I need ALL OF IT:mad2:.' :lol:

So I'm closer but will most likely settle back to ten-ish once the novelty fades. When you are drinking and light up, do you feel guilty or any way? Or are you enjoying?

The two people I spend most of my time with are smokers; and honestly, being around them is what's tripping me up. Tried it out(not having a cig around), I cave.

It's a complicated enough vice that I feel each angle must be measured and approach, anticipated. Very methodical, I plan hard. But also have an anxiety disorder.. :grin:
So when caught up I can sometimes manage to 'nike it,' and throw myself forward. As a lovely lady once said, 'Free Time Is the Only Time.'
Until I 'just do it,' I continue to mentally prepare and put ducks in a row.. but I'm for sure stuck on this one. Ducks have gotten impatient and are now glaring. The pressure I'm putting on myself with, 'Must succeed or doomed to be a smoker forever,' is not serving me well. Not to mention, I don't want to go through that process beyond once more. I've been at this place for so long, my mind is running in circles to stay busy.

Damn, Dylan.. I vaguely recall you sharing in the past, but reading that still made my jaw drop. How many years did you sustain 2.5 packs a day? I've heard just how high paced and crazy the back of the kitchen can be, perfect environment for cigarettes!

How long did you use the gum before tapering off? Do you ever miss it?

Ive been smoking nicotine for almost half my life. I quit in jail for a year and once I got out I started smoking again. I have like 4 cartons of roll your own. I got a box of Raw papers its like 50 papers of 32. I smoke like 5 cigarettes a day but I also vape salt nicotine. I am going to try and quit smoking soon im trying to eat only edibles and not smoke weed.
I was taking a dab the other day and I choked up and could hardly breath it was pretty unpleasant. I dont want to die from not breathing the covid 19 has me woried.
I have a lot of nicotine stuff I smoke middle eastern stuff like dokha and hookah.Sometimes I shake and have a  little muscle spasm or feel really light headed with dokha. I was told one hit is like 5 cigarettes nicotine equivalent.
