It's illegal and I'd prefer not to get mouth cancer.
There's No licence to grow tobacco here either.
May as well grow something healthier.
a pack of twenty costs $30 au..most of it tax.
Cost of cigs increases 12% PA..the idea is that you outprice the user and it works.
The cost, while not the driving factor was a big part of why I decided to stop.
The smell thing doesn't always apply. people at work are surprised to know I was a 10-15 a day smoker.
I don't smoke in the car, I dont smoke anywhere other than my balcony before and after work and i don't smoke around non smokers (which is almost everyone). so no one notices.
The self righteousness of some ex smokers is sort of understandable. Constantly having to re affirm their commitment, like any junkie/ addict/alcoholic they'll use whatever tool is available." If you're struggling convince yourself anymore, you preach to someone else" or something like that. I...
That's an option. I decided I'm going to be healthy, fit, sing in the choir, go hiking,traveling and maybe even sailing ...until I'm 75.
then I'm going to start smoking a packet a day, drink a bottle or 5 of good red a week, Live on camembert and double cheese and butter toasties, tan without...
Thanks Gissie. What I don't get is how this time I quit so easy, just ripped em up and that was that for nearly three months. I've been cool around smokers, totally fine with my coffee, even ok when a bit stressed. The little shit turns up when I'm most relaxed and cheerful. Go figure.
Help! nearly 3 months clean. I quit easy. Got told my BP was OTT so I quit.
Easy. no real withdrawal symptoms, no real cravings.
Also quit butter and cheese cos my Cholesterol was OTT too.
Last week, feeling peaceful, relaxed and happy ...I bought a pack, smoked 3..threw em away. bought...
It's odd. The nicotine addiction doesn't seem to get me much. I don't get cranky, have headaches or even crave the stuff much. It the psychological triggered that trip the need.. If I'm busy ...I dont smoke..simple.
little mini breaks..finish a task..have a cig, trick is to find a cig...
I went to the docs a month ago..blood pressure high.. check up last week.(Thurs) BP taken three times..last reading 158 over something.
Told to get a ECG .. normal, told to get an echocardiogram. waiting on results.
Stopped cold turkey last Thursday (9 days!!)very few cravings, when I do get...
I'm hopeless, I can get on a plane, go on holiday, quit with nary a twitch for weeks..get home.. back on 10 a day within 3 weeks. :(
I don't smoke at work, I don't smoke in the car, i don't smoke on holiday.I don't smoke inside.It's weird.
I don't even get withdrawal symptoms much.
