Desert - this post is like a shot in the arm.
My kids are begging me to quit. Quit for 8 yrs. and went back (what an asshole I was) and now I really must. Am afraid my health is going, and will go down the shitter if I don't.
There should be some sort of permanent post for those of us who are trying to quit
Your post has given me the courage to quit again.
And, you are absolutely right - it is the most addictive drug going.
After 8 yrs, one cig had me going again.
Will start tomorrow a.m.
That means: no more morning coffee, alcohol, and a few other things.
After meals is a big one for me too.
I don't know how I'll drive w/o smoking! Used it as an excuse to stay awake.
I admire you man.
Keep up the amazing work!!!
