Ok so I quit smoking yesterday and I have noticed several things:

1) I currently have the attention span of a 5 year old with ADHD.

2) The patch is BS but the gum seems to be helping.

3) I dont feel like working.

Any advice from quitters?? Day two is a BITCH!

Thank God I have other vice’s to fall back on!

The Herr once tried to quit smoking, 5 minutes he lasted because he just loves the pole.

The patch works pretty good, if you put it over your mouth.

I’m in the process of quitting too, but I don’t have enough ovaries to switch from a pack a day to none at all, so I reduced my smoking to half of what I used to. When I get used to this, then we’ll talk about the next step.

coffee in large quantities helped me stop smoking…now I have to work on reducing my coffee intake. Do they make a patch for coffee addicts?

good luck!

Jester I smoked over a pack a day till yesterday. I could not believe what a fucking vice grip those things have over me!!

I quit cold turkey which on day two is getting slightly better. I think the gum works better than the patch.

Good luck and keep strong. I’m hoping to quit soon as well. I went cold turkey once for 10 months, not a single puff. I wish I would have stayed off ‘em.

It truly is a bitch. My problem is not the nicotine or the oral fixation but the actual act of smoking. The gum helps for the nic fits and the oral fixation but I truly am missing the lighting up, moving my hand to my mouth, inhale, exhale cloud. ARRG. All my co-workers are pissed because I have been clicking a pen non stop for the past three days.

Wow, you have some balls. I quit cold turkey for a couple of months, but I’m wondering if people around me deserve to be with an evil bitch again. I’m still down to 10 cigs a day…

Good luck on day 4.

yeah buddy. We know The Herr/Himm/It loves a pole straight up his butt. It has been said that he prefers Big Black greasy ones. Is this true?
