    When I was in Japan from 1989-1992, that was one smoking country.  People smoked almost everywhere.  At the time I wasn't smoking, but it didn't really bother me. I went to Japan for a visit in 2015.  I was walking down a Tokyo street smoking and a polite Japanese man politely pointed to my...

    I disagree with you completely but you can think what you like, of course. If a quitter needs that kind of support and affirmation, then they should go see a counselor.   I and others that don't care if they quit smoking, and we are not 'available tools'.  Quitters should go preach to a...

    Shitski.  I meant to write ex-smokers.   Sometimes my brain thinks one thing and my fingers type something else.

    Worse in my opinion.  Some people who stopped drinking are embarrassed to admit they had a problem.  Some former smokers not so much. "Hi, you say your name is Ed?  Glad to meet you Ed.  Say, do you know I stopped smoking five years ago?  Yep, it was bad the first month but I hardly think about...

    I prefer pragmatic or realistic, but I can accept miserable git. A long time ago I realized that most of the shit that keeps us up at night, all those things we spend do much time and anxiety trying to prevent rarely happen.  Most of the things we worry about either solve themselves, or are...

    I guess you can dream.   I hate this saying, but it's pretty much true.  "Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans."

    I quit a few times, the longest was for 6 years.   I find it easier to smoke.  I enjoy it for the most part. The next time I quit smoking is when I draw my last breath.  Life is to short to worry all of the time about not smoking. In addition, some of the most self righteous people I have...

    You quit smoking. Good for you. Why do you have the need to be such an asshole about it? You don't like the smell of smoke anymore, that's nice. Fuck you.

    You are correct that you are at the worst stage of an ex-smoker. That is to say you are at that point where you are a self righteous prick about it.

    I have been a smoker for more than 40 years. I quit once for 6 years and tried a couple of other times. I will smoke until I die, be that sooner or later. I need it and I usually like it. After my first spontaneous pnuemothorax (collapsed lung) of 3 in my life, a good friend of mine gave me...
