The State of California (and everything in it) is known to the State of California to cause cancer.

My grandmother died of throat cancer a clear 10 years after she quit smoking (for 50 + years).

One bright spot of this century has been the drastic reduction in the number of people smoking.

However cool it may make you look, it doesn't do anything else for you. It's unhealthy, makes you smell bad, and wastes a ton of money.

It would be great if there were a similarly efficacious method of looking cool with the same amount of effort.

Strange, nitrosamines are in cured meat, the product of using nitrates and nitrites to preserve meat.  The cure for cancer creates cancer.  The tricycle of life.

Had a friend who tried Chantix years ago. Said it gave him weird dreams and made him feel odd. He stopped taking it after he said he woke up one night and was trying to strangle his wife.

Note to self. Chantix can help.

Lung cancer can pop up years after quitting smoking. My grandfather smoked for 20 years then quit for 20 years and still contracted it.

I was an on and off smoker for a bit. When I decided to quit for good, I considered taking Chantix. I spoke to a colleague who'd been on it and he told me it gave him awful nightmares.

Smoked for twenty-one years and quit the night before my 40th. Haven't wanted another cig, haven't cheated, and now they smell like shiat to me.

A week or so later, they shot up to nearly $10/pack from ~6-7 bucks.

Quitting decreases your risk of cancer over someone who never stops smoking, but IIRC that risk never goes back to the risk of someone who never smoked.

50 years is a lot of exposure.

My Mom Beat the thought of EVER smoking outta me when I was 11 years old, (I'm 63 now) after she found out I had been smoking.......She made me Promise I'd never touch another cigarette again Ever again Never!!!!

Mom's been dead for over 20 years now & I still have kept that promise too.....But she never said anything about Marijuana though.....lol
Funny it was that Mom & Dad both smoked when I was a kid......Mom quit but had a stroke 10 years after she had quit & later died from complications of the stroke.
Long story short my birthday is in July & that's the closest I want Cancer in my life....hahahahaha!!!

Smoking killed all 4 of my grandparents. Two hadn't smoked at any point within 20 years of their death, another smoked two packs a day almost to the end.

They all lived to be ~90 either way however. shiat's weird.

My mom tried Chantix. She said the same thing. But it permanently altered her mind, and after she stopped using it, she was one of the most abusive and manipulative people I knew. She remained that way until she died. I wouldn't recommend Chantix to my worst enemies.

I got cancer at the base of my tongue and never smoked or drank.

Of course, the cause was a different kind of behavior 30 years ago..but hey.
 
2021-07-20 12:57:56 PM  
Damned if you do; damned if you do! I tried using Chantix twice but the side effects were worse than the cure. Still struggling to quit completely. Down to just 3 a day now. Helluva drug!

"Reading this causes cancer."

Now I want to know if that was known when the OP typed it, or if it became truth because the OP typed it.

I can see a call to Morgan & Morgan in the future....

I used Chantix with no issues other than a few vivid dreams.  A couple of years later I fell off the wagon and tried it again, at which point I went into a near-suicidal depression I didn't associate with the drug because it hadn't happened the first time.

Thankfully I finally jumped on the vaping bandwagon.  After 35 years of every cessation method known to man failing, I knew within the first ten puffs I'd never need to light up a cigarette again.

So...CSB

Pack+ a day smoker for over 20 years.  One time I quit for a year cold turkey but went back.  I found with cold turkey the monkey was always on my back "just 1 last smoke then you'll quit..."  even months after I quit.

Vaped.  It gave me the power to quit on my own terms by tapering down.  By the time I was on the 0% nicotine cartridges I just stopped.  Took about 4 months and a little willpower.
I've had zero desire to smoke since and that's 6 years ago.

Good luck to anyone else facing this.

I smoked a pack a day for 20+ years. I quit cold turkey. The hardest part was the first two weeks getting all of the nicotine out of my system. After that, it is all in your head.
I haven't wanted a smoke since, 10+ years, but I had a really wierd dream I was smoking, and woke up coughing a few years ago.

Chantix:  The side effects included nightmares, anger issues, suicide, and now cancer.

I'm glad I never filled that prescription. I switched from store bought cigs to home made (with the top-o-matic and Gambler pipe tobacco and ... medicinal herbs) and now to a bent neck old man pipe and I haven't breathed this easily in years. I'm weaning myself off of nicotine, but I like my pipe and whisky movie nights. Eventually both will go or get less frequent. You can keep that Chantix nonsense. One needs a lifestyle change to quit drug habits.

Listen smokers. If you quit smoking the libs win. The libs are just trying to take your FRAYDUMS away!

Do Not Quit Smoking. In fact, you should double the amount you are currently smoking.

Everyday libs are chipping away at YORE RITES! Do not let the libs do this. What are you? A MERICAN or a sissy boy, soy sucking, COPD skinny jean, Tesla driving infant?

DO IT NOW!

No one quits smoking. Some people just go longer between cigarettes than others.
