jberryl69 (12) Since this addiction is more mental that physical it is a bitch to kick for most people because of the "trigger" mechanism that pulls people back to it. If you don't address a means to change that programming, your attempts to quit will be very difficult.

After listening to a subliminal tape for 30 days an hour a day in Dec 1989, I never smoked again nor have I ever been bothered by the desire to smoke.

Earlier on, back in the mid-seventies, I'd quit but after five years I picked back up the habit. I had not realized the psychological aspect of the addiction.

If you want to quit it's a tough nut to crack.

pat362 (365) I can understand people who started smoking any time before the 70's and maybe even as late as the 80's because the studies on the dangers of smoking were not that common so you could still believe that it's not as dangerous as we now know but what is the excuse for anyone who started smoking after that? What is the reason why anyone is starting today?

I never started so I never had to quit but I did spend many years working in different smoke filled environments so I was subjected to second hand smoke for all those years which is not that good.

RustyJ (145) Never been, never will. What always amazes me is that people become smokers even though you have to actually force it on yourself. The first smokes taste so bad, make you cough and almost feeling sick. The social pressure must have been huge on those who fell for this poison ;)

graymane (29) Momma taught me, as an impressionable youth growing up: about the yielding to, and potentially harmful outcome thereof three notorious no-no's of the time.
1) Smoking
2) Alcohol
3) Chasing women

Proudly, two of those values stuck.

Cybertoad (100) Interesting poll, I did off and on when I used to use other.... lets say entertainment sources. But do not drink or smoke. Haven't had a drink in nearly 9 years. About as long as I haven't smoked.

Some will smoking is hard to quit, this is true if you are addicted to it yes. I found it harder not to drink them not smoke. The smoking was pretty easy. Not so with drinking, nothing like a nice steak or fish dinner and nice glass of wine. Or a sports game with out a nice German beer and snacks.
Smoking came along with it and I guess left when it did.

Capn (28) Used to.

Effectively stopped twenty plus years back.

My mindset is that I think that I haven't given up.
I just say to myself,'Nah...I don't want one.'

Cap'n. :0)

messmer (137) REPLY TO #9 - Cybertoad :

Funny thing about that, CT, I had a thorough physical shortly after I quit and the doctor told me, "one would never guess that you had been a heavy smoker for all those years." And as my reward for quitting I acquired environmental sensitivities by the bushel:

Now I am miserable around wood smoke, cigarette smoke, scented candles, scented detergents, air fresheners, perfumes, colognes, flowers, pollen, dust, grass etc. because my nose got hyper sensitive .. I think I'll stop there! :-)

exotics4me (463) I have an interesting take on smoking. I have one huge fear in life. Being burned. Never would touch a cigarette because of it. Nearly everyone in my life jokes about me not being able to light a traditional flick lighter. If I'm cooking out, I have to use one of those long, press the button, lighters to start the fire or I strike a match, throw it in and am halfway across the yard by the time the fire starts. My mom says it dates back to when I was a kid. It seems I put my hand along the stove/counter and put it on a redhot stove eye.

Though I can't claim complete tobacco-free lifestyle. As a former baseball, football player and someone who worked on farms since I was 13-14, I have used smokeless tobacco and still will occasionally. On the other side of it, I've never liked alcohol too much. I always had access to fresh, clean, well-water and water is the only thing I drink outside of the occasional Root Beer or Coke.

turboshaft (24) I actually tried to smoke but it didn't stick--no cravings, stress, anything else that genuine smokers claim makes them continue to light up. That and I just didn't get anything out of it--almost every other "vice" I can think of has had some sort of effect on me physiologically or psychologically.

I have a pretty sensitive nose though and cigarettes can be one of the stinkier habits (of course so can something as "healthy" as eating seafood, which I also can't stand...), plus I'm a cheap bastard!

marcdc1 (163) Glad to see all the non-smokers, but I'm a little surprised. I think as a grew non-smokers are over represented compared to national average.

Don't know what that means, but it's interesting
