Random Anonymous Blackmail: I would like to quit smoking but everyone within arms reach of me would suffer a horrible death.

/stressed


And just for the record, I feel your pain on that one. The amount of stress in my life has tripled over the last six months. The kind of stress that binge drinking until you black out tends to help. But of course, since I discovered I was pregnant, I've had to deal with all of this crap sober. It hasn't been fun. I don't sleep much, let's just put it that way.

Genju: Couple extra things to add on to my last post:

They do sell 10% (100 mg / mL) nicotine solutions. But seriously do not try to kill yourself with that shiat. There are much easier ways to go. Nicotine overdose is a similar death to hemlock poisoning which royally sucks. Imagine uncontrolled puking and shiatting while every muscle in your body screams in paralyzing pain simultaneously for 20-30 minutes before cardiac arrest.


What about massive amounts of cocaine, heroin, and whiskey all at the same time?  Oh and hookers.

Psychopusher: addy2: Super Chronic: The Muthaship: Super Chronic: I still occasionally have dreams where I'm smoking

Do you get pissed at yourself?  I have those dreams, and while I am still dreaming I get mad at myself for smoking.  It's weird.

I don't know if "pissed" is the word.  There's a definite sense of "I'm supposed to have quit, and here I go again."  But it's uncomfortable, yeah.

I get those too. And it's never a choice in the dream. I'm already smoking in that dream when it's starts and I notice and think WTF? Thought I quit!
/almost a year thanks to e-cigs but now I'm a fatass.

I was already a fatass when I started E-cigs so I'm good...

/2.5 years for me.


Well done! I was working on permanent fatass status myself. now trying to work it off.

I really should try and do the same.  But the reason I became a fatass was the same reason E-cigs were the only thing that got me to quit: I have zero willpower.  I'm just waiting for a magic pill, preferably one that won't cause my body to cook itself from the inside.  If only they would invent E-food that worked just as well...

Hm.  It's different for me: it's a conscious decision when I start (and in fact it sometimes starts with me buying cigs at the store) and I'm not comfortable with the decision I'm making, but maybe I'm also rationalizing a bit -- "it's okay now because I'm not addicted! I've quit!" (Which, by the way, is the same terrible logic I used during previous unsuccessful attempts to quit:  "it's been a week, clearly I've kicked the habit, so I can go have one now!")

You should probably have read the link; the info is from the New England Journal of Medicine.  But it's really nothing new, as studies have been saying more or less the same thing for years.

The weird thing is, I've switched to those e-cigarette things (with the highest nicotine levels) the day I quit. So I know it's not nicotine withdrawal. I looked up psoriasis-propylene glycol links and couldn't find anything one way or the other. Or rather, the internet is full of opinions on both sides. But nothing worthwhile, as far as I could find. So I'm living in the future, sucking on my ee-lec-tronic cigarette, and life goes on. God I miss smoking.

For me, it was a feeling of relief to be having a smoke (in the dream) immediately followed by being very angry and disappointed with myself.  I'd still be mad when I woke up.

Haven't had one of those dreams in a while, thankfully.

I am so glad I never started.

Being straight-edge in my youth did actually pay off in my adulthood.

With smoking, though, it was just logic: Breathing in carbon can't be good for you, whether it's from a stick of tobacco on fire, or from a house fire you're trying to escape.

Smoked briefly in college... ran low on money and had to choose between cigarettes and alcohol... alcohol won.

occasionally light up a pipe or cigar to enjoy with a nice glass of whiskey or brandy. can't stand cigarettes anymore.

SarcasticFark: I've never tried the e-cigs...are they any good?


I quit smoking literally the instant I tried my first E-cig.  Not everyone does -- some take a few days or a few weeks, everyone's different, but they're orders of magnitude better than Nicorette or other NRT products.  Keep in mind though that these are designed as a safer, healthier alternative to smoking rather than as a stop smoking aid, however it also happens to be a lot easier to reduce and eventually eliminate your nicotine intake from a platform of electronic cigarettes than it is from tobacco if that's your ultimate goal, because E-cigs don't have all the crap (and particularly the MAOIs in tobacco) that make it harder to quit.

If you're interested in more detailed info than would be sane or appropriate to post here drop me a line at vaporchase1 AT gmail.com and I'll tell you anything you wanna know.  :)

addy2: Guilty as well. And farking up my metabolism when I quit doesn't help. starting weight training to get off as much as I can.


Yeah, did that too, though not because of E-cigs.  My metabolism just apparently said fark this, packed it in and headed for Aruba as soon as I hit 30.  And I, heedless of its departure and enjoying the mounting stresses of life, didn't adjust my diet accordingly.  Farking fatty foods.  Why do you have to be so delicious?

BronyMedic: GungFu: Bullshiat! Smoking provides essential vitamins and healthly amino acids to help develope your lungs in combating air pollutants, such as car fumes and halitosis.

Without smoking, you get cancer from daily pollution and your workmates bad breath.

Scientific fact.

Sadly, some people actually aren't kidding when they say this, and are paid very, very well by Cigarette Companies to ensure this is the line of bullshiat the American Public is fed.

Back in the 1970s and 1980s, when there was major controversy over if Cigarette sales should be heavily restricted or banned because of their health effects, things like this and paid-for false studies were the norm for these guys.


Waaaah! I didn't know smoking was bad for health. I heard some propaganda ad that made me smoke. Waaah!

To everyone here suffering from psoriasis like me I will provide this gift.   I have used every cream, 5 years of light therapy, and numerous injectibles over the past 20 years.   The only drug that has totally cleared my skin, which covered almost half my body was Stelara.   When I had insurance the injection was free, and is given every 3 months.    Now, after losing my insurance one injection is $6800 a piece which obviously I cannot afford.   The point of my rant is that Johnson and Johnson has a "patient assistant program" that if you qualify for they can provide you with 1 years worth of injections, almost $27,000 dollars worth of medicine.   I qualified and get my first free injection next week and I've never been so thrilled to see a needle.  Trust me this drug was a godsend to me and I saw progress in the first 2 weeks.   Can't wait to get sticked with that needle.

I have a lot of friends who are insanely smart, like astrophysics professors and shiat, and none of us ever smoked. The very few people in our crowd in college who smoked were the people we considered stupid (I went to engineering nerd school). So just know, when you're lighting up all hip and cool, you've just put the dumb guy sign around your neck.The reason you smoke is that you were too stupid when someone offered you that first butt to say, "Hey, this is a smelly, expensive, unpleasant habit that makes you sick. Why would I try it?"

Fark Rye For Many Whores: Show them what their lungs look like.


Heart attack symptoms work well, too.

I started smoking at 17 and was up to 3 packs/day by the age of 20.  I had heart attack symptoms at the age of 36 and spent the night in the hospital.  It was a false alarm, but I took the hint and got a prescription for Chantix.  If there was ever a miracle drug, it's Chantix.  No withdrawal symptoms and no cravings after the 1st week.  In fact, I cut the dosage in half after two weeks and quit the whole treatment program six weeks into a twelve week program and still never had any cravings or withdrawal symptoms.

My heart and lungs, so far, still look great according to the doctor.  It's been four years and you'll never know how bad you feel as a smoker until you've quit.

A good family friend who smoked a pack a day until she quit in the mid-80s died last year of stage 4 lung cancer. She hadn't smoked since her early 40s, she started feeling tired and a bit weak,  went to the doctor, and died within 2 weeks of diagnosis. It was sad and shocking for everyone except for apparently the doctors who said it's not that uncommon.

So good luck, smokers!

Yeah, that's pretty much what happened to my dad, tho he lived 8 weeks to the day from his first symptoms. You can scroll up for more details. I'm still bitter 10 years later.

I love math/word riddles.

So she was in her early 40's in the mid-80's... so lets say she was 42 in 86.  She died in 2012, putting her at 68 years old.    Not that uncommon.

I quit smoking literally the instant I tried my first E-cig.  Not everyone does -- some take a few days or a few weeks, everyone's different, but they're orders of magnitude better than Nicorette or other NRT products.  Keep in mind though that these are designed as a safer, healthier alternative to smoking rather than as a stop smoking aid, however it also happens to be a lot easier to reduce and eventually eliminate your nicotine intake from a platform of electronic cigarettes than it is from tobacco if that's your ultimate goal, because E-cigs don't have all the crap (and particularly the MAOIs in tobacco) that make it harder to quit.

If you're interested in more detailed info than would be sane or appropriate to post here drop me a line at vaporchase1 AT gmail.com and I'll tell you anything you wanna know.  :)

addy2: Guilty as well. And farking up my metabolism when I quit doesn't help. starting weight training to get off as much as I can.

Yeah, did that too, though not because of E-cigs.  My metabolism just apparently said fark this, packed it in and headed for Aruba as soon as I hit 30.  And I, heedless of its departure and enjoying the mounting stresses of life, didn't adjust my diet accordingly.  Farking fatty foods.  Why do you have to be so delicious?


Thanks for the info!  I do believe I'll give these a try soon :D

The One True TheDavid: stupiddream:

Do you really want to live to your second childhood, diapers and all?  I think we should encourage all unhealthy behavior because there are too many of us on theis planet anyway.

I agree in general, but the unhealthy behavior should make you feel better. Bronchitis, asthma and incipient emphysema doesn't qualify.

But I took up eating & boozing to replace it.

And I've always been a fan of hot sex with crazy women.

AHEM. I said "I've always been a fan of hot sex with crazy women."

You hear that, KY Farkettes?


You rang?

gopher321: Horseshiat. Smoking, even in your early years, not only threatens your health directly, but also amplifies any other medical conditions you may have and makes them worse.


I concur.  I was 30 years and 9 months when I quit in late 2002 because a routine exam showed I had "some emphysema."  If I had kept smoking a pack a day, there's no telling how bad off I'd be today.
