you can all blame me for trying to get don to quit smoking. When we talk live using headphones and mics on msn i have been trying to get him to follow me down the path of no weed. I have been off it since right after xmas. basically as a type 2 diabetic i did not want to possibly end up losing my legs due to possible circulatory problems down the road. I read the articles and stories and got scared, real scared, packed in the smokes after 45 years. Ya i have stopped a couple of times before.....but this time------------- I GOT THE FEAR .!

Don has had a lung removed when they miss diagnosed cancer in it. My arguement to don is that he only has the one, why play with fire. Only going to be on this planet so long, ya want it to be as happy , healthy and long as can be. Money saved has nothing really to do with it........its all about quality of life and with don fighting the good fight hopefully nothing will happen further.

Many times i want a smoke , especially when i am building stuff.........but then i get the visual in my head of no foot and whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, back to reality.

Here is the funny thing, now when i am in a store you can really smell somebody who smokes when they walk by....THEY REALLY REEK--STINK, big time.

Hang in there don......the urge is great, will power has to be strong....madmike3434

Quitting Smoking has got to be the hardest thing anybody will ever have to do........Someone that has NEVER smoked can never understand the POWER of the ADDICTION.

As Smokers, Big Tobacco ambushed us. They added the exact amount of nicotine into tobacco needed to cause the Addiction......they must have read the secrets of becoming a billionaire.

"Manufacture it for a Dime, Sell it for a dollar, and make it Habit Forming"

This alone should give folks pause to consider the situation we as smokers are in, Yet the majority of non smokers show us NO Empathy ( let alone sympathy)

We were advertised too we were peer pressured and WE were Ambushed Purposely

Does this buy us a Little slack??? NO, Absolutly none.

We are treated as Lepers........An HIV Positive individual is Treated with more respect & Dignity.

It is a terrible injustice............

Find us a CURE, a Way out of this Addiction that actually Works..........Spend the BILLIONS of dollars recieved in Lawsuits against Big Tobacco to Cure the Malady they have caused.

But that will never happen..........WHY?? Because Government Makes FAR TOO MUCH MONEY Taxing Tobacco and has NOTHING to replace those dollars in the event a sure cure were found.

We ar not only caught between a rock and a hard place, the ROCK is CRUSHING US!!!:bang::bang::bang::bang::bang:

We were the stupid ones.

We thought it would make us more attractive to the fairer sex WRONG also we would be like the marlborough man very tough and not fall of the horse WRONG and we would all be top sportsmen WRONG it was only 25cents a pack and we could afford that WRONG not only was it the advertising but Humphery Bogart then Frank Sinatra also got in on the act.

Before filter tips and cork tips we were able to stick the filthy things on our lower lip so that we could talk and smoke at the same time. It was nigh impossible to enjoy a cold beer with out smoking, those were the good old days WRONG AGAIN.

Since I started trying to give up ( So far so good) I clean my teeth several times a day, never noticed it before but  my mouth tastes like a cesspit.

I quit in 1975 for 12 years, then started again, I don't remember how or why. Then I busted my hip in 2004 and had to quit. You can't smoke in a hospital. In two weeks I was through without a single "hit"

Now I'm 5 packs into smoking again...I wanted to see how close I could get without the addiction. DUMB!!!!!!!!!!

After reading all the letters written, I'm going to try cold turkey again. Wish me luck.

I'm even so stupid that at 85 I tell myself I might as well keep on. I haven't long to live so I might as well enjoy.  I live alone except for Woodie in the back yard and I can buy Canadian cigarettes for $13.00 bucks a carton...no tax...but I have to buy 10 cartons at a time.  STUPID STUPID STUPID.
